Every new year opens the door to a new world of beauty possibilities and closes it to those of the past. So you're not completely left in the dark, Get The Look has rounded up a list of the hair and beauty trends that are likely being phased out come 2017. Hint: You might want to avoid asking for that matte lipstick or contour kit for the holidays!
Out with the old, and in with the new! Read on for the trends to say goodbye to in 2017.
5 BEAUTY TRENDS TO SAY GOODBYE TO IN 2017
Life is about to become a whole lot easier. The chiseled, contoured look that started with, or at least got a lot of attention thanks to, the Kardashians has been replaced with softer, strobe-like accents. Opt for blush instead and apply it on the apples of your cheeks and up to your temples, or amp things up with only a touch of your favourite highlighter!
WINE STAINED LIPS
It's been a huge trend this holiday season, but come 2017, it will be time to put away the merlot, at least in beauty terms. The deep red lip that everyone fell in love with this past season has been replaced with a field of berries. Scoop up a deep boysenberry (you can also break out of your comfort zone with blue or blackberry shades) for Winter, and ease into a light mauve or pink shade come Spring.
SOFT, EVEN CURLS
The soft waves that rolled onto the scene for 2016 are being replaced with roaring, uneven, and slightly messy curls. Pump up the volume with a texturizing paste or sea salt spray, working upward and outward. Then air-dry or blow-dry hair for a touch of that '70s "big care, don't care" oomph.
Proper lashes are a thing of the past. In 2017, go for width, not just length, with a volumizing mascara and/or false lashes. If things don't even out in the end, don't fret. Separated Twiggy or spider-like lashes are having a serious moment right now and will continue to in the New Year.
That's right. While we don't see braids falling off of the beauty surface completely, Spring 2017 runway shows indicate that they will likely take a back seat to edgier, slicked-back ponytails, half-up, half-down styles and knots in the upcoming season. Think crisp, cool power-looks.
