5 Beauty Trends To Look Forward To in 2017
As we get prepared to bid adieu to 2016 and all the bold fashion it brought forth, here's the low-down on beauty trends that are set to rock this coming year. Along with counting down, make space in your wardrobe, vanity boxes, and lives for these 5 trends that will add the ‘new' to 2017
1. Lip Art
While lip art has always been popular on many forums and image sharing platforms, it is going to be THE BIG thing in 2017. From contoured lips and bold colors to multi-colored, gradient, and ethereal pouts, it is pucker-up all the way in the New Year!
Bonus tip: Start with moderate gradients if you're a beginner. Slowly begin experimenting with colors and we guarantee, you'll be besotted with the world of lip art!
2. Colorful Highlighters
Although a barely-there contour palette is the safe choice for all, 2017 is for those who do not shy away from the spotlight. Colorful highlighters, now available in so many variants, are just the right amount of color to jazz up your day and night looks!
Bonus tip: If you want to go all the way, opt for glow-in-the-dark palettes that are out of this world, if nothing else.
3. Wet Eyeshadows
Nude, gradient, metallic, or bold, the wet eye look is fashionable and here to stay. As opposed to a powder, a wet eyeshadow really helps the pigments stand out. For a long-lasting and bolder look, wear a shade you're comfortable with, but as a wet eyeshadow. This will also not have as much fallout as powder ones, which means you can say goodbye to both boring eyes and crinkly eye dust!
Bonus tip: Use a nude or slightly tinted crème eyeshadow at the base to amplify the look. Alternatively, use a primer all over your face.
4. Lip & Cheek Stains
The only thing that's better than two essential beauty products is a 2-in-1 solution! Lip and cheek stains are all the rage currently, and they're only going to become bigger. If you haven't hopped onto this train yet, what are you waiting for? Whether it's a DIY shade that fulfils your dreams or a store-bought beauty, multi-use products are economical, convenient to carry, and uber chic.
Bonus tip: If you're going the DIY way, opt for muted shades if you are a novice. This will ensure your initiation is blissful and never garish!
5. Colored Mascara
Move over plain eye shadow and black mascara, 2017 belongs to colored lashes! For most people, dramatic eye looks seem overwhelming. Well, this trend may be a godsend for you! From subtle silvers and glittering golds to bright blues, colored mascara has debuted at all the runways.
Bonus tip: Pair it up with neutral eyeliner or wear it alone, it could be the pop of color that your face deserves!
While we're at it, can we just say that hair scarves and chrome nails are also very, very 2017! Change is inevitable, and the fashion & beauty industry embraces this wholeheartedly. What do you think is the one trend that stands out? Let us know!
