With a new year comes new trends, so now is the best time to start thinking about the latest beauty treatments and looks. If you are looking to spruce yourself up this year or you simply want to try out some new looks, then read on.
The makeup trends for 2017 are a tale of two extremes: either just a little bit of makeup applied artfully, or piles and piles of glitter and shine. Here, five new beauty trends you can master with products you already own.
1. Bold Blush
Get your blush brushes ready – you are going to need them in a big way in 2017. Whether applied with a heavy-hand and a nod to disco or subtly blended from cheek to temple, blush is meant to be seen. Leave subtlety at the door.
2. Metallic Lite
Metallics are still trending, but for 2017 we are expecting to see them done in a much more delicate fashion. Think: swipes of silver shadow across the lids, or a touch of gold highlighter along the cheekbones. Nothing more, nothing less.
3. Relaxed Red Lips
Red lips are always in style (and anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong). But the way to wear it in 2017 is with no-makeup makeup. Clean, fresh skin, fluffy brows, minimal eye makeup, and a striking red lips are a no-fail combination.
The glitter trend is still going strong. This year, try to wear it in a less precise manner than you have tried before. Scatter it across your bottom lash-line, allowing flecks to fall where they might. The less perfect it looks, the more perfect it is.
5. Eye Liner
If you finally nailed your liquid eyeliner skills last year, you are in luck: Liquid liner is still in. This makeup tool is going to highlight your eyes and make your style fresh and fervent.
