Read on to see what makeup, hair, skin, and nail trends you'll be sporting this year (or may have even tried already!). We hope we'll be able to convince you to experiment with at least one thing on this list this year.
You’ve seen them in magazine editorials. Now it’s time to bring them to life. Start by applying gel or cream eyeshadow with your fingers or a brush all over your eyelid. Finish with a light eye balm or gloss, such as Glossier’s Balm Dotcom, and avoid the crease to ditch the stickiness.
Take a trip back to your middle school years and break out the black eyeliner. This year is all about lining your inner waterline with black pencil liner (try the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil). Try it for an edgy, sexy look.
Apply some lip gloss and pat on a hint of glitter with your ring finger for a sparkly touch.
Ditch the dark hues of the winter season, and opt for a light, wearable look with 3 simple steps.
- Start by applying a layer of your favourite nude lipstick (we love Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Meringue).
- Apply any bright lipstick in the centre of your bottom lip, covering the very inside edge but avoiding the outer lip line. Press your lips together to give your upper lip some colour, then add a bit more lipstick into the centre.
- Finally, glaze over the brighter lipstick in the middle with lip gloss. We recommend Jouer’s Skinny Dip Long-Wear Lip Topper, which smells amazing and moisturizes with coconut oil!
Dry body brushing has been around for many years, but face brushing has only come around to the forefront recently. It’s been known to exfoliate, increase circulation, and reduce the appearance of cellulite! For a healthy glow, try using a face brush and gently brush in circular motions all over your face before using your cleanser.
“In 2017, probiotics will continue to be at the forefront of the beauty industry,” says dermatologist Whitney Bowe, MD. She explains, “research has shown that the bacteria in your gut interacts with your immune system, which leads to changes in your skin.” This can lead to skin inflammation, redness, and acne. Ingest foods and drinks rich in probiotics, such as yogurt, miso soup, and kombucha. There are also topical probiotics that help increase moisture levels in your skin.
Go Regina George style and put your straightener to good use. Prep your hair with a heat protectant spray, such as Kiehl’s Silk-Straightening Cream, then flat iron thoroughly, finishing with a centre-part. So fetch.
Chances are you probably have a lob (long bob) after the past few years of this cult hairstyle. Freshen up your look in 2017 by adding lots of layers throughout your mid-length cut to bring your lob to the next level.
2017 is all about nails that sparkle and pop. Start with a nude base and paint geometric shapes, such as gold triangles at the base, or thin lines along the length of the nail.
Add a playful touch to the French manicure by painting your tips with bright colours as opposed to the classic white. Another way to incorporate colour in your manicure is by painting gradient or ombre hues.
