As we wave bye bye to 2016, the trends was, glitter. We all went gaga over the shiny. The goddess of makeup herself, Pat McGrath, made it so with the release of her Lust Kits. Unabashedly blinding glitter.
If this completely passed you by, that’s ok, here’s a free pass.
But if you want to get a leg up on what’s going to look hot in 2017, look no further. Free passes won’t come so easy next year.
Brows, brows, brows
Brow grooming is getting big. Fast. And it isn’t just about sculpted and luscious brows like you’re channeling your inner Lily Collins. People are now starting to see the benefits of semi-permanent solutions. In 2017 everyone and their mum will be getting peel off brow tints and microblading.
Glossy, Dewy eyelids
Glossy eyelids aren’t that new. They experienced a resurgence in late 2016, but they’re expected to start with a bang in 2017. Normally achieved using lip gloss on your eyelid, brands such as Bobbi Brown are releasing special eyelid gloss. Soon you can get that mysterious dewy look without making a sticky mess of yourself after 2 minutes.
People say fashion and beauty is cyclical. So it’s no surprise that high fashion houses are drawing inspiration from the pop-obsessed ’80s. To go with all that voluminous clothing, cosmetic makers have also begun bringing back the big and bright. So, that rule about picking either the eyes or the lips? Why not try throwing that out the window in 2017. We dare you.
Or nothing at all!
While going nude was a huge trend in 2015, it sort of died off in 2016 with all the emphasis on glittery, dewy faces. But with the rise of athleisure/”athluxury” wear, and the renewed emphasis on organic, clean living, the nude look is back with a vengeance! And what looks more nude than makeup that looks nude? No makeup at all! High fashion runways have begun embracing tinted moisturizers and barely there concealer and the #NoMakeup trend is growing too. Also, you know the best thing about this trend? Your skin is going to love it!
So there we go! Our guaranteed* predictions for 2017!
Now there’s no excuse for not looking your best. Let us know what you’re going to rock in 2017. Who knows? It might be the next big thing in 2018!
