The countdown is over and 2017 has officially arrived. With a new year coming into play, our beauty trends are set to change and some are set to continue! To follow is our low down on what’s hot for 2017 and how to get the look.
One trend which continues to prove popular is the barely there makeup look- meaning minimal colour and product on your face. Keeping your face fresh and dewy is key for this look. One product makeup artists swear by as a makeup base is the Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentre £20 as it will moisturise and transform your skin in an instant and help to create that nice dewy, youthful finish. It also doubles up as a repairing mask and primer too. A staple key to this look is natural and untouched looking brows, Lord & Berry’s Must Have £14, is a brow mascara that locks stray hairs into place whilst also adding a subtle tint.
Finally, finish with a soft and subtle touch of nude lipstick- to recreate an English rose shade. Lord & Berry’s 20100 Lip Crayon in Charme £12, will give you this subtle hint of pink- its creamy texture will also add moisture to your lips
A bright bold pop of colour is a key trend for 2017. A bold lip such as PPQ’s Lilac theme is a must this year and on the catwalk they used Lord & Berry’s Lip Crayon in La Fiesta, £14 on models. Highly pigmented with a creamy texture, this lip colour will show you’re not afraid of standing out from the crowd. However, if you are looking for a more subtle colour of statement, Lord & Berry’s Timeless Kissproof in Bold Red £15 is a must. A liquid lipstick that dries matte, its long lasting and also non smudgeable- also perfect for Valentines.
Glow me baby
A beauty trend that's here to stay, highlighter and shimmer have both had a huge part to play in 2016 and is the answer to achieving healthy and youthful glowing skin in 2017. Apply a highlighter such as the Lord & Berry’s Luminizer stick £14 on the bridge of your nose, cheekbones and on your cupids bow will give the illusion of a smaller nose, higher defined cheekbones and fuller lips.
For an all over dewy glow to your face which is also perfect for the summer apply the Transformulas 23 Carat Hydration Gold £41.95. This crème will instantly illuminate and adds a hint of 23 carat gold shimmer to the skin. Added benefits is it contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin, help promote collagen and keep the complexion youthful.
Blush me up
Finally, another trend that will hit us in 2017 will be the return of the blush-woo! - as spotted on the 2016 catwalk. 2017 will see this trend evolve with blusher now being used across the temples and eyes-adding a stronger and more daring edge.
For a more subtle version of this trend, simply apply a blusher such as Lord & Berry’s blush in Lotus, £18 along the cheekbones in a sweeping motion with a brush such as Brushworks Blush Brush £6.99, giving you a soft and subtle rosy glow ready for the day ahead.
