We Round Up the Best Beauty Trends to Grace Our Newsfeeds in 2017

Another year has almost past and, during the course of it, we have seen our fair share of beauty trends. Some of them we could happily never lay eyes on again, while others were so amazing that we want them to live on FOREVER! Here’s our roundup of the best beauty trends from 2017 – we know you love them as much as we do.

The Buzz Cut

These celebs love to shock us – but also inspire us. Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart and Zoë Kravitz are just a few of the famous faces that chopped off their locks this year, making the buzz cut one of Hollywood’s hottest hairdos of the year.

Really Long Hair

On the other end of the length spectrum, super-long hair has also made a major resurgence this year, especially in the last few months. Sure, it may be impractical (accidentally sitting on it) but it looks fancy AF so all is forgiven.

Bleached Blonde

Blonde is one of those colours that never goes out of style. In direct competition with the hygge, or comfy colours, trend we saw in the earlier part of the year, were bleached-blonde and platinum shades. Even model Karlie Kloss and Solange jumped on this bandwagon.

Dewy Skin

Young, youthful and fresh is what this year has been about, so it should come as no surprise that dewy skin was in. Looking a bit sweaty? Don’t worry, it’s trending. Why be matte and flat when you can shine?

Highlighter for Days

We’ve all been displaying our inner glow all over our faces this year. From gold shimmers to holographic ones, highlighter has been ALL the rage, and it’s safe to say that our cheekbones aren’t going to live another day without it.

Metallic Lips

The ’90s has made a huge comeback in the beauty industry. Metallic lips bring the drama, and we are more than happy to bring it some more next year.

Lip Gloss

Just as eye-catching as metallic but somewhat more subtle was the glossy-lip trend. Since 2017 was all about serious shine, it makes sense that we were all about the high gloss on our pout. And since Kim K has just launched more, we have no doubt that this trend is sticking around. Yasss!
