In 2017, beauty and style moved away from the super-serious looks of previous years and towards a much more playful aesthetic. Normcore style faded into a revitalization of ’90s and early ’00s aesthetic, with bright colors, velvet, and chokers re-appearing.
Bold lips continue to be a trend, with more offbeat colors making a bold appearance. Blues, greens, and purples are nontraditional colors that are increasingly accepted. Try out a purple lipstick if you’re just wanting to test the waters, as a deep purple is not too far away in terms of color from a deep burgundy – and those have been around for ages! If you’re ready to dive in feet-first, you can even find blue and black lipsticks included in regular (non-Halloween!) collections at the drugstore now.
Glitter makeup is going to be a huge trend for this upcoming season, with many brands releasing glitter-focused eye shadow palettes, eyeliners, and lipsticks. Go all-out and mix your glitters for a bold statement, or try mixing a glitter lip with matte eye shadow, or you could try throwing on a glitter eyeliner for a subtle pop of shine.
No matter how you want to experiment with your personal style, there’s always something to play with. The biggest trend in beauty and fashion is moving away from super serious looks, towards a more playful aesthetic. Don’t take yourself too seriously!
