Posted by Paola Pérez on 06/10/2024

As we are all well aware, from season to season and year to year, fashion trends evolve and change. The makeup category, of course, is no exception. Because of the rapidly changing dynamics in the market, at Lubrizol we are constantly monitoring consumer behaviors and social media conversations to anticipate new trends and preferences. Here’s a snapshot of what’s coming:

  • Color is Key. Consumers see makeup as an empowering confidence booster. Today, they are looking for fresh, new colors as a way to express their individuality and style  
  • More Tones, Please. The growing popularity of personalized beauty products along with an increasing number of diversity and inclusion movements is creating greater demand for products that offer a wider variety of tones
  • Sun Protection is a Priority. Now more than ever, consumers understand the impact of sun damage on their skin and are making sun protection a key part of their daily  beauty routines. In fact, Global Google searches for ‘SPF makeup’ were up 46% in the last quarter1
  • Keep it Light. Lightweight fluid formulas are growing for both makeup and sun care products. Engagement for “lightweight” in makeup conversations grew +118% YoY and +22.5% for sun care2
  • “Coverage” is All the Talk. Engagement for “coverage” in makeup conversations grew +29.9% YoY and +17.6% for sun care3. We are also seeing high-coverage makeup looks like #PorcelainMakeup going viral on TikTok
