The Housewives look, all picture-perfect hair and skin, need no longer apply when it comes to 2017 beauty trends. Instead, it will be a year of playing with make-up, embracing your natural hair, concealing, rather than masking, any imperfections and experimenting with color.

Party Make-up

2017 will be a sparkly affair, no matter what time of day it is. Break out the lash glue and prepare for a studio 54 kinda year. From glitter lips to shiny eyes, it's time to have fun. Try the Cosmetic Glitter from OCC to kickstart the party. This versatile, light-diffusing glitter works on the face, hair, body and nails.

If you want to start small, opt for something shimmery like the NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-usage Dry Oil - a cult classic that will give you irresistible looking skin, or try the RMS luminizer to illuminate your skin without glitter.

Skin Perfectors

In 2016 Alicia Keys stopped wearing make-up, and killed it. The 'no make-up' look isn't exactly groundbreaking, but there's a new emphasis on it for 2017. At Isabel Marant, Michael Kors and Proenza Schouler SS17, make-up was used only to hide blemishes.  It's about enhancing your natural assets, so start with clean skin and use facial oils for radiance. Try BB creams or Dani by Dr. Lancer, a beautiful and lightweight illuminating cream.

80s Throwback

The 80s are back! In 2016 Marc Jacobs revived the draping trend (using blusher to contour) and big, bright blusher could also be seen on temples at Kenzo (as above), Chanel and Adam Selman, Elsewhere at the SS17 fashion shows, we could see Cyndi Lauper-inspired hair, where curl and movement gave off an all-night vibe.

Pay homage to Eighties rave culture with color-pop eyelids and metallic make-up too. Find your most pigmented cosmetics, put texture into your hair and get ready to dance like its 1985.

Nature's Finest

Crystals, gemstones, and other minerals, such as charcoal and clay will be around in a big way next year. As the line between beauty and wellness becomes more and more blurred, the divine energy of crystal-infused skincare is a subcategory worth investing in.

“We are made up of water tissues and minerals; our bones are a crystalline structure. Therefore, [we] have a natural affinity and resonance with crystals and minerals. We have a physical, electronic exchange with the earth as we do with crystals and minerals,” Kristin Petrovich, co-founder of Själ told The Observer. “Crystals and gemstones vibrate at a higher frequency, so when they are used in skincare, they help to target the weaker cells, helping to balance, harmonize and energize the skin.”
