We’re opening our little black book and having these Atlanta-based experts explain what to expect from their respective beauty specialities this year.
Trust these five experts to help you feel and look your best.
It’s all about the eyes again, according to makeup artist Erica Bogart of Erica Bogart Beauty. “Bold colors are making a comeback,” she says, “like green and blue.” If that doesn’t work for you, there’s no denying the natural look is still very much in: Think “ethereal beauty looks with glowing skin as the focus,” she says. Try oils to amp up the dew for a youthful, envyworthy glow.
CBD is riding high, says Linda Silber of Woo Skincare + Cosmetics. “It’s a great anti-inflammatory. We’ve tested many brands and really like Cannabliss Organic,” she says. There’s also an ingredient Silber is excited about called niacinamide, which naturally improves the skin’s appearance. Silber and her team recommend the SkinCeuticals Micropeel Sensitive Skin.

Alicia Wente of Spray Studio noticed people now want to achieve a more natural look. “Clear self-tanners are becoming huge,” she says. That means products without bronzer, such as best-seller Spray Studio’s Hydro Glow Botanic facial tanning mist. She’s recently introduced a Blank Canvas tan removing lotion to “leave you clean, exfoliated and smooth.” 5590 Roswell Road NE, Ste. 250
Milly Marques of Brows by Milly is always up to date on brow trends. This year, “it’s more down-to-earth brows,” she says, like “messier brows with a straighter, longer shape.” Also, “looks are always changing,” she notes, “so microblading is ideal—it fades year after year, giving us the opportunity to adjust.” One of her four microblading artists will get your face in shape. 9700 Medlock Bridge Road, Ste. 182
For Steve Hightower of Steve Hightower Hair Salon & Day Spa, it’s back to nature where hair color is concerned. Right now, “everything colorwise is about nature, with highlights of red, copper and orange.” It’s really what you use before and after. For best results, he says “use a color-locking shampoo and conditioner, and a spray leave-in color locker on towel-dried hair.” 646 Lindbergh Way NE
