Beauty Trends That Will Take Over In 2017
Happy New Year! Can you believe 2016 is over? A new year for self-growth, success and most importantly beauty trends is upon us! Let's get rid of those ridiculous beauty trends of 2016 and make 2017 your most beautiful yet. These are the beauty trends that will take over this year. (Giving you a little head start to set them before your favorite influencers do!)
Remember the famous Instagram brows of 2015? It was all about having those eyebrows on fleek with concealer on both the top and bottom to create an extremely crisp appearance! 2016 saw the rise of a softer more natural looking brow and this will continue into 2017. Less concealer (only on the bottom) and lighter hairlike strokes will enhance the facial features, while also giving you a more grown up look. (Microblading is going to be huge this year!)
Got nudes? No matter the season, time of day, event etc., nude lips are literally your best friend. Keep in mind a nude lip differs with skin tone, a brown lip might give off a nude effect on a deeper skin tone. (Because what really qualifies as a nude these days?) Nonetheless, the versatility combined with the sheer elegance a nude lip gives any person will make this a staple this year.
Nude lips give way to eyes that pop. Smokey, bronzed eyes are the way to go this year. The warm shadows give off a glow that will make any eye color pop, while looking less harsh than a black smokey eye look. You can complete your look by applying your favorite highlight to the inner corner!
The days of blinding highlight may be numbered. Social media has seen countless beauty gurus opting for a more matte finish that gives the skin a fresher look. (Don't throw out the highlight yet, it won't completely faze out for a while) Applying a moderate amount of highlight to the cheekbones that only shows in lighting/sunlight is the way to go! (I was starting to see faces that glowed in the dark.)
Backlash on the overly done faces of the past four years seems to be reaching its peak in 2017! (Sensing a theme here?) Fresh skin with no makeup is rising among many of the very beauty influencers who brought contouring, highlighting and brows to the forefront. Celebrities such as Alicia Keys have also embraced the no makeup wave.
The theme for 2017 is fresh, natural beauty. (Doesn't mean that you can't have fun with your glitter eyeshadow and blinding highlight!) What do you think of the trends for this year? Will you ditch them for the more dewy looks of 2016? Comment down below!
