world always manage to bring us something memorable. This year, big glitter joined smoky eyes, which highlighted important features of the make-up we will need in 2017:
Glitter for Eyes, Face and Body
Glitter is Big and Bold – not just touches of sheen but applied in lines and chunks. Don’t even attempt this look without a strong glitter glue or primer, or the fallout will drive you to distraction. Use only top cosmetic quality glitter to prevent skin irritation. If you want thick, dramatic lines, try it at home first, to make sure your primer is up to the task.
Have fun with red, turquoise, purple and yellow!
Dark lips using Non-drying Liquid Lipsticks
From lips entirely free of make-up to the lushest dark plum and goth-black, you can create a different look using the right
lipstick for each image. When you wear the trendy dark colors, choose your lipstick carefully as it can be quite messy. Non-drying liquid lipsticks deliver the best results when you need long-wearing looks in matte or gloss finishes. Look for full coverage with opaque color. Pay attention to the applicator tip – flat sponge tips are better for applying dark colors.
Precision Gel Liners for geometric eye detail
Definition without drying, flaking or streaking color is key to pulling off the daring new geometric eye makeup detail. Move over cat-eyes! Dots, lines and mini works of art make up the plucky new look. Gel liners won’t dry out, flake or smudge and it glides on without dragging or scratching. Precision is the secret, and you need richly pigmented color that is humidity- and sweat-resistant.
The No make-up make-up look with Photo-Optics
Moisture is the key to this new trend – and a good photo-optic formula to minimize blemishes and fine lines. You need flawless skin to pull this off, so now is the time to intensify your skin care routine to make sure you are ahead for 2017. This high-fashion look can be hard to pull off without proper preparation, so plan ahead to make sure you have a luminous appearance. Invest in the best foundation you can find and learn how to apply it with delicate strokes and perfect blending or forgo the foundation for a lightweight, non-settling highlighter with photo-optic technology.
Waxed Brow gels to finish your look
Experiment with different looks by accentuating your brows with darker brow fillers. Wax brow gels have the upper hand over powder as brow gels contain beeswax to obtain a polished look with perfect definition. Look for humidity and sweat resistant formulas that offer buildable color that will let you change your look from natural to sophisticated with just a few extra strokes. You need a quality brush to apply in layers using short, light strokes to trace the arch of your brow.
