Trends come and go. But ones that are here to stay are within the beauty industry.

These trends are not just one-time fads, they're here to last. Whether the seasons are becoming cooler or hotter, any way you wear these trends will look timeless.

Ready to see what made the list? Check them out!

Inclusive Beauty Products

This year has been groundbreaking in terms of diversity. Beauty companies worldwide have become more willing to expand their shade collections to include women (and men) of all skin types and colors.

Thanks to Fenty by Rihanna, she unleashed an array of 40 different shade options of her foundation. While this might not be much of a trend (because it'll be here to stay), it was worth mentioning. Now if only all the beauty companies to ever exist could get on the inclusive bandwagon.

Multi-Use Products

Today's busy woman on the go deserves beauty products to enhance her hectic lifestyle. Enter all-in-one kits.

These wonders are made up of multiple products but all in one palette. Every product included can double as another. Eyeshadows become highlighters, lipsticks as blushes, the list goes on.

The convenience these types of kits offer is why it's a trend. There's no longer a need to cram all of your foundations, highlighter, bronzers, and blushes into your purse when you can have them all inside one palette.

Graphic Nails

We aren't talking about your classic French manicure anymore. For the end of 2018, it's all about graphic nails.

Don't think vibrant colors, think of causes. Causes such as breast cancer and feminine health. Those are good reasons to paint boobs and vaginas on your nails!

While this trend might not be suited for everyone, start small and maybe paint one nail full of boobs.

Bright Eyeshadow

Nude eyeshadow is a thing of the past when bold, vibrant colors come into play. For the fall, warmer colors with a punch are in.

Think electric blue, violet purple, and rusted red. The brighter, the better.

If this trend is a little scary or just won't work for your day job, try a brightly colored eyeliner instead. Purple works great for those with brown eyes while lighter colored eyes will benefit from green or blue colored eyeliner.

Skincare as Makeup

Feeling beautiful starts with having great skin. Rather than fake it by pilling every product of makeup you have, focus on your skincare routine.

Moisturizers, facial oils, toners, and masks are all in. This trend will actually benefit you rather than make you wary to try it.

Layer on the moisturizer and serums for an ultimate no-makeup look. You'll be proud you took the time to tend to your skin when you can use #nomakeupselfies on all your photos.

The Wet Hair Look

To compliment that bold eyeshadow (because let's face it, it's a lot of look), you need something that's simple but not boring. Enter the wet hair look.

Just in time for the cooler seasons, this hairstyle can go with any outfit. The experts over at Cuvee have three ways to perfectly style this look using great products.

Glitter

For those into unicorns and anything sparkly, you'll get a kick of this beauty trend. Glitter is in! And it's not just appropriate anywhere, it's appropriate everywhere!

We're talking glitter eyeshadow, lip gloss, and oh yeah, glitter highlighters! Some of your favorite beauty lines have gotten in on the action---KKW Beauty, Fenty, even Huda.

But don't think you have to look like a rainbow to pull this look off. To make it socially acceptable, choose a palette that resembles nude or pastel colors. That way, you won't look like you're trying to relive your childhood.

Messy Bun

It's the perfect hairstyle that says you're effortless. It's no wonder why it's trending yet again for the cooler seasons.

And nothing has you looking cooler than ice than a messy bun paired with a loose-fitting sweater. If the messy bun has you feeling sheepish to try it, just know it can be recreated when it's not planned. Don't soak your hair with serums or creams.

Second-day hair works best as it'll have more natural texture. As you put it into a bun, don't worry about bumps or flyaways. That's the whole point of a messy bun is for it to look intentionally messy!

Inner-Eye Highlights

To give your eyes more of a pop, placing highlighter in the inner corner of your eyes will do just the trick. It adds a subtle brightness that'll draw attention to your peepers.

If you want in on the glitter trend as well, pair these two together! It's a great look if you're planning to go out for the evening or just more of a punch.

Two-toned French Manicure

While we discussed the graphic nail trend, there's another manicure sharing the spotlight. For those that love a classic nail, you'll also love the two-toned French manicure.

There's really nothing to it besides picking out two colors that complement one another. You can do pink with red or for a more sophiscated look, go for oxblood with a white tip.

Barrettes

Barrettes, comb headbands, and claw clips, oh my! The 90s reign supreme with all these heavy-hitters stepping back onto to the scene in 2018.

You'll soon be seeing them everywhere as they all made their comeback debut on the runways of Fashion Week. Style them however you'd like, that's the freedom that comes with these babies.

The Burning Of Notre Dame Has Actually Strengthened My Catholic Faith

Corinthians 5:17 says, "Old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."

Every year, Palm Sunday is the start of Holy Week in the Christian faith. As the most sacred time of the year, those who believe Jesus died on the cross for our sins hold these days dear in our hearts. 2019's Palm Sunday, however, is now held in infamy. The very next day, the precious Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris started to burn.

As the world now knows, the famed and historic Notre-Dame de Paris was spontaneously engulfed in flames on April 15, 2019. The cause has not yet been identified precisely but is most likely due to complications during the $6.8 million renovations the cathedral is currently under. Completed back in 1345, the nearly 800-year-old church has withstood the test of time relatively well.

Until now.

The modern world watched as one of the biggest treasures of the past burned away before our eyes, Twitter even erupted in an unprecedented coverage of this world-wide tragedy as many took to social media to pour their condolences and share memories of this French icon. Religion, race and personal beliefs aside, the world collectively grieved and lent support.

While this is truly a loss on a global scale, the blow comes as a particularly harsh one to the Catholic community after a particularly difficult season of Lent. From the Pope addressing allegations of sexual assault, to backlash over the controversial theatrical release of the film "Unplanned", this latest development seemed like a cruel joke in the days leading up to Easter Sunday. I myself felt affected by this fire hundred of thousand miles away in North Carolina. One of our most beloved holy churches was ebbing away in front of us and all God could do was watch.

However, despite all that, we must look forward.

Despite much of the church being reduced to ash, some of the priceless artifacts and objects that were hidden away in the cathedral have been able to survive the ordeal; such as the crown of thorns, numerous pieces of art, the rose windows, the altar cross shown above and the iconic bells of Notre Dame. Once news of this broke out, I was strengthed to my core knowing God was indeed there.

It seems like such an oxymoron to see such a tragedy as a sign of hope, yet the Bible itself is full of those. The 7 plagues that tormented Eygpt, the Great Flood, and even the death of Christ as examples.

As children of Christ, we are told at a very young age to never question his plan. He is all knowing and has a way of making everything fall into place. God sensed that Catholics were in the midst of a troubling time and brought us this opportunity of a new beginning. The burning taking place during Holy Week can also be taken as perfect timing.

The whole premise of this week revolves around the death of Jesus at the hands of Pontius Pilate, yet miraculously returned three days later before joining Our Father in Heaven, the cathedral can very well do the same and return better than before.

It is a devastating loss but already we are seeing evidence of joyous aftermath. As I noted before, people from all walks of life are offering support and condolences to a faith they were scorning just a week prior. Priceless artifacts have miraculously been recovered and plans for rebuilding have already started. This is a sign of a new beginning, that God is backing us through it all.

Do not question His plan, just have faith. The rest will fall into place.

How do you know if your HVAC system has an issue? Check out the problem you might encounter with your HVAC below!

Clogged Filter

Not feeling good air flow? It might be because your filter is clogged.

One that's dirty doesn't allow the air to flow through efficiently. When this happens, it needs to be replaced.

Noise

Noises coming from the HVAC system means there's a problem. Rattling, clanking or banging indicates you'll need to get in contact with an HVAC company.

They'll be able to pinpoint the issue to ensure your system gets back to working normally.

Power Issues

Just because you're having power issues doesn't mean it's an expensive or hard fix. Access the following:
