2016 was all about glitters, shimmers, red-burgundy-marsala etc. So what will 2017 bring to the table? Based on what we’ve seen on Pinterest, beauty blogs and the spring/summer 2017 runways, we have a lot to look forward to. Be an early adopter and don’t wait until 2017 to try one of these beauty trends we’re predicting will be huge in the new year.
Glossy Eyelids: Glossy lids aren’t entirely new, but they’re making resurgence in 2017. Typically, clear lip gloss is used to achieve the look, but there’s no need for a makeshift product anymore. Bobbi Brown announced they’ll be releasing an eye gloss in the spring and that means we can try this trend without creating a sticky mess.
Actually, no-makeup: No-makeup makeup is going to take a back seat to actually wearing no makeup next year. Embracing your flaws and achieving fabulous skin is in. The runways of Isabel Marant SS17 featured clean, radiant skin, and only enough makeup to cover up any red marks and blemishes. You may be surprised at how much you like the barely there look.
Deep side part: A super deep side part is a simple way to elevate your look. Whether you’re wearing your hair down or in a low ponytail, the deep side part will work easily either way. The best part of this look is it’s easy to achieve, even for someone who claims to be hopeless when it comes to hair styling.
DIY Chrome nails: The popularity of chrome nails has already trickled into 2016, but we’re going to bet on it becoming a huge trend in 2017. According to Pinterest, futuristic chrome nails are all set to takeover. The only downside to this trend is that chrome nails aren’t all that DIY-friendly. You’ll have to rely on your nail technician to give you that bold metallic finish.
Braids and braids: We haven’t stopped hearing about braids for the past several years, and we won’t stop hearing about them any time soon. In 2017 we’ll be incorporating braids into every hairstyle, from buns to ponytails and braids framing your face. The perfect low-maintenance hairstyle for those of us who don’t like spending too long on our hair.
