As we approach the new year, let's take a moment to thank 2016 for an epic year in makeup: rainbow highlighters, knife liner, and of course, more lipstick colours and accents you can ever imagine (hello, glitter lips!) We're also happy to be packing away those memories as we look to 2017 for the new makeup trends that will be taking over runways, red carpets and our very own makeup bags!
Read on for the 5 makeup trends you'll see more of (and most likely be obsessed with) in 2017!
5 MAKEUP TRENDS YOU'LL LOVE IN 2017
This past year was all about the matte lip, but now, celebrities and makeup artists are bringing lip gloss back. Liquid matte lip gloss may have dominated the last few years, but lip gloss is a refreshing change giving dimension, shine and youth to any look. The best part about lip gloss? It can be used to add a glossy look to your eye shadow as well – another major trend to watch out for in 2017!
In 2017, we're taking it back to the most important step: achieving healthy, radiant, conditioned skin. No more strobing, baking or contour (or 10-step makeup routines, for that matter!) Let your skin breathe in 2017! We recommend pairing natural and bold: Skin that's fresh and glowy paired with bold eyes or bold lipstick.
Seen at Mary Katrantzou, DKNY, and Fendi, where pouts were covered in glitter, bold statement lips are taken to the next level by creating new dimensions, from ombre effects to an overlay of glitter – or even a little lip contouring. For a super easy result that doesn't look it, layer two different effects, such as a base layer of a satiny lipstick with a dab of high-glitter gloss right in the center of your lips.
UNFINISHED BLACK LINER
Take a cue from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Rag & Bone, and Chloe, and get inspired by imperfect black liner for 2017. Whether it's degraded on the bottom lash line or lined only in the centers of the eyes, black liner is taking on a new look by being a bit unfinished. Whether grungy or architectural, your only mission is to leave the hyper-flawless look in 2016.
If you've found your beauty arsenal full of multi-use makeup, you're in luck. Pairing blush with the same lip tone and adding the same colouring in the eyes ties everything together. These days, nearly every colour of the rainbow is up for play, no matter where you apply it to your face.
