The world of fashion and beauty moves so quickly that it’s sometimes hard to keep up with the current trends, and it’s certainly easy to get left behind. Thankfully, Ellisons have just released a brand new ebook which looks at what’s hot for 2017. With the long winter drawing to a close and the first signs of spring upon us, it’s time to look ahead to the trends that are going to be big this year! I love trying out fresh ideas with my make-up and while I don’t go for anything particularly ‘out-there’, even subtle changes give me the feeling of a fresh new look and a spring in my step.
Whether you put makeup on every day, or just for a special occasion, it’s fun to keep up with the trends. You can incorporate them into your routine or maybe adjust them a little to suit your look more. Here are just a few of the trends to look out in spring summer 2017.
A huge hit in the early 2000s, glossy lips are apparently making a comeback this year. After a year of matte lips in muted tones, brightly coloured lips are set to return, which is music to my ears as a HUGE fan of a super bright lip I couldn’t be happier!
Great for creating a sultry look, smudged eye liner is set to be big this year. This is brilliant for us time-pressed mums, as it’s a lot easier to create than the cat-eye flick that has been in fashion for so long. It’s also much more forgiving when you make mistakes from being in a rush.
A trend that has come straight from the catwalk is unexpected colour. Whether that’s unusual eye colour or even the yellow eyebrows which were seen in the Gucci show, colour pops could really add an exciting dimension to your look.
Natural looking dewy skin is going to a popular look this year according to Ellisons. Couple this with glossy lips for a youthful looking glow. I’m turning forty this year, so anything which can turn the clock back a few years is a big bonus.
Back to the eighties
Subtle statements to full on retro throwbacks the Eighties are set to make a bright comeback for spring/summer 2017’s beauty. Bright lipstick, blush, side-swept curls, colour-pop eye-lids and crimped hair means you’ll be good to go with your 80’s summer style.
This trend makes me so happy! Shimmer and glitter are set to be big for SS17. Taking the form of glitter cuticles and glittery eyeshadow, making it the perfect addition for spring summer parties.
The ebook also looks at new treatments and trends within skin care, hair removal and tanning, as well as answering a number of frequently asked questions! You can see the full ebook here.
