Make 2017 the year you change up your look and try something new! From Lip patches, holographic lipsticks to powdered nail polish!
1. No-blow-dry styles are in
For many of us using the hair dryer can be a real chore. However, this technique will save you both time and effort! Simply use a touch of styling cream on your hair and twist it. If you hate the idea of having to use a hair dryer, this technique is definitely going to save you some time and effort. You just have to use a little bit of styling cream on your hair and twist it like you see in the picture!
2. Metallic nails are back
A big favourite in recent years, metallic is definitely back in style for 2017! From mirror effects to metallic tones, the choices are endless and will leave you with stunning, eye catching designs that will perfectly match your daytime and evening wear.
3. Move over beauty blenders, silicone sponges are here
Beauty Blenders have now become standard practice in the world of beauty, but are soon to be replaced by silicone sponges! So you can completely eliminate wasted makeup and skincare, perfectly applying and blending your foundation, blush, highlighter, concealer, moisturizer, and primer without absorbing one drop! You only need half the amount of product compared to a traditional sponge or brush applicator.
4. Welcome to the future with holographic effects
Give your makeup the ultimate makeover with holographic effects! Including eyeshadow, lipsticks, and polish and even makeup brushes! This year is about giving your look a hit of rainbow metallic.
5. Unleash your inner disco queen
This trend is for the bold and brave ladies out there! Perfect for a night out to give your look a touch of WOW factor, with a range of colours to suit different styles, giving you an eye-catching smile throughout the night.
6. Powder polish for that perfect manicure
There is now a new solution for creating that perfect manicure! Powder polish is the safe and healthy alternative to acrylic nails, adding length, protection and shine, without the damage that acrylics can cause. This product takes half the amount of time to do a full manicure compared to using acrylic and monomer and with a large selection of colours, you can get a great selection of gel polish colours.
7. Look after your skin with a charcoal mask
This year to look after your skin there is nothing better than a charcoal mask! These popular masks can really help unclog even the toughest pores. We’re all on the hunt for perfect, poreless skin and charcoal masks are perfect for minimising your mirror time. They are designed to target toxins and draw out impurities instantly.
8. Get to grips with dot contouring
This year the latest trend in makeup application is going to be dot contouring, a new strategy for contour lovers out there! The key is to apply the makeup in tiny dots, a great way to avoid overdoing it on the makeup.
9. Luscious lip gel patches
After luscious lips? Lip gel patches could be the answer! With a whole range available to tackle issues from hydrating chapped lips to giving all-day colour! Each lip gel patch helps remove dead skin cells, improve elasticity and leaves your lips moisturised. Formulated with revitalising ingredients, each lip shaped hydro gel patch hydrates, repairs and soothes for soft, supple and smooth lips.
10. The topknot is well and truly back!
The topknot is back…with a twist! This year the topknot has become a half pony with a braided design, also called the braided Mohawk. The design is pretty simply to create, all you need are: a comb, styling clip, hair band, hair pins, elastic band, curling iron, straightener, or curling wand. To create you begin by sectioning off the top section of hair. To do this, create two parts from the corners of the forehead back to the crown. Clip off the top section, then tie off the bottom section to keep it out of the way. Now let down the top section to do the braid. Then create a Dutch braid along the centre of the top of the head. When the braid reaches the back of the crown and all the hair is brought in, tie it into a messy bun. Once the bun is secure, grab your favourite curling iron, straightener, or curling wand and add some waves to the rest of the hair. Finish with some hairspray and you’re ready to hit the town!
11. Increase facial and neck circulation
It’s never been easier to increase facial and neck circulation with new tools to get a more youthful look, helping to stimulate your skin. You can relax your body from a hard day at work and your muscles from high-strength fitness and exercise. Not only this but you can help reduce your dark circles under the eyes by helping to promote blood circulation to the eye area. The tools can be on your face, neck, back, arms and legs - anywhere that needs to massage, stretch and relax.
12. Say hello to circular makeup brushes
It’s time to finally get rid of your classic set of brushes, and say hello to new circular brushes! The design allows you to distribute your makeup more uniformly and apply your powder makeup more easily, as if it was a liquid! Each circular brush is great for applying foundation, blush, highlighting, bronzing, skincare, and setting powders.
