In the world of beauty and skincare, there are always trends and fads to try and news about what’s best and what works. We try to take what we see and separate what’s useful and worth the money vs. what’s not before spending our entire paycheck on lymphatic drainage facials and Sephora shopping carts ?. So, we went to an expert, Heather Hart, owner of Newport Beach’s Lavender Salon and recently opened boutique Be(YOU)tiful, to weigh in on some of the biggest trends in beauty right now. Since Heather has her hand on the pulse of what’s next and new in all things beauty + skincare, we asked her to share the beauty trends she and her clients are loving – and how to make them work for you, including which products to use!
1. Glowy, Dewy Skin
With summer quickly approaching, no one wants to be wearing a ton of makeup – and the no makeup, makeup look is very on-trend right now. To get your skin prepped for this glowy, dewy fresh face look – we recommend getting a HydraFacial. It removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing the skin. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective. Your skin will be absolutely radiant after this treatment!
One of the biggest trends in beauty and skincare right now is CBD. If you are looking to try CBD for the first time, we recommend starting with a simple CBD-infused lip balm or a body lotion by the popular Lord Jones brand. Once you realize the amazing effects of taking CBD (its been shown to reduce anxiety, inflammation, depression and many other conditions) – you might want to try our exclusive CBD facial by our talented esthetician, Sam Patridge. We are one of the only locations in OC using a water soluble elixir that goes directly into your skin, which can help with acne, pore size, psoriasis, and eczema.
3. Eco-friendly & Sustainable beauty:
Our clients are very interested in what ingredients are going into the products they are putting on their face and body. That’s why one of our best sellers is RMS Beauty – their products are formulated with raw, food grade and organic ingredients in their natural state, allowing their living, healing attributes to penetrate and rejuvenate the skin.
4. Strong, Bold Brows
Long gone are the thin brows of the 90s – everyone is asking for bold, thick, gorgeous brows. We carry EcoBrow – and their defining wax and crayon will step up your brow game and make them look filled in and defined. If you are looking for a more permanent solution – Be(YOU)tiful is home to Sacred Brows’ Casey Loza who is a freehand microblading artist. Her talent is incredible – she has a 400 person waiting list (!) – and makes your brows filled, fluffy and stunning!
5. Matte Lip

The matte lip was everywhere on the runways this spring and our clients want to recreate the look – and make sure it lasts all day. We love the ByTerry Paris lip-expert matte liquid lipstick. There are a ton of gorgeous colors to choose from – and your color will still look flawless by the end of the day.
