Last year, Pat McGrath introduced the fashion industry and the masses alike to glitter-dusted lips—and the look will still be fresh as hell in 2017.
Underliner is equal parts wearable and subversive AKA just the kind of beauty risk you want to aim for in the new year. Try slashes of bright liner under the lower lash line or an upside down cat eye painted on with glitter liner.
Picture-perfect liquid matte lips had their moment, but now it’s time to give your hand-eye coordination a break. Enter: The blurred lip. You can embrace imperfection by diffusing edges and adding more color to the center of the lips with your fingertips. It’s very laissez-faire.
Perhaps the best thing to happen to brows since Cara Delevingne, the microblading technique uses a small hand tool with micro-needles to deposit pigment underneath the first layer of skin so your brows are filled in 24/7. Costing anywhere between $700 and $1,200 for a treatment, it’s not cheap, but lasts up to two years.
Take your highlight to the next level with a shimmery strobe. MAC senior artist Regan Rabanal creates this look by applying a strobing cream, highlighting powder, and finally a few fine glitters for extra impact. We love it on the half-halo of the face.
Liquid matte lips dominated the last few years, but lip gloss is a refreshing change giving dimension, shine, and youth.
SKIN THAT BREATHES
In 2017 is taking it back to the most important step: achieving healthy, radiant, conditioned skin. No more strobing, baking, or contour. Let your skin breathe.
