December Throwback and Predictions: Trends from 2017 that Will Stay IN the Next Year
Today Claire tells about trends that will stay!
As time continues to pass, we are now welcoming December. The year 2017 has been full of changes and resolutions for everyone, but some of the main trends are bound to persist in the next year as well. This is especially true when it comes to beauty, fashion and accepting the realness of being who you are. In that respect, December is the perfect month to remember the main trends of the year and welcome the ones that deserve to stay with us again.
Obviously, matte eyeshadow is always going to be the most popular trend when it comes to makeup world. However, this trend can’t be tied to one specific year. On the other hand, using makeup freely to express yourself is something that’s become a true beauty mark of 2017. It’s not that there are really no rules – you’re the one to make the rules in the first place. In that respect, you can opt for the bare face look with nicely shaped eyebrows, or full glam look with as much glitter as you like. It’s true that metallic makeup has only started to rise in popularity this year but the glossiness of it all is definitely going to be a part of the next year’s makeup trends as well.
Minimalism is something that has its hand in various aspects of life. From home décor to fashion and makeup, a minimal lifestyle has more and more followers. Therefore, it’s quite certain that minimalism will follow back as well in 2018. Even though they are the complete opposites, both minimal and eccentric makeup and fashion looks are securing their place among the next year’s trends. What’s more, mixing and matching the two in different aspects of your life is more than possible and quite enjoyable.
It’s true that staying original, unique and personal with your fashion choices is one of the major fashion trends of 2017. But, this leaves plenty of room for different styles to seep into the following year. However, one particular style that doesn’t seem to budge from the trend list is undoubtedly the nineties fashion. Plenty of shapes and patterns, as well as the mix of some bright colors together with the darker, more alternative side of the nineties, are all in for a popularity ride in 2018 as well.
This year we have witnessed a considerable transition from regular to organic products when it comes to beauty and health. Obviously, taking care of ourselves while protecting the environment is something that even more people need and want to embrace as part of their lifestyle. From organic makeup and skincare brands to organic food and even organic feminine hygiene products, providing yourself with the gentlest but most effective care that minimizes your carbon footprint is not just a trend, but a true necessity in today’s society. Both you and the planet Earth deserve the best.
You may not have expected to see this particular trend here, but practicing mindfulness and getting to know yourself is something that has a deep connection with everything else you’re doing with your life – including your makeup and fashion choices as well as the necessary everyday care. In 2017, more and more people have started to work on learning to recognize their own needs and wants and loving themselves for who they are. Finding the time to do this for yourself is essential if you want to feel fulfilled and confident when it comes to your choices and decisions as well. Keep it up in 2018 as well.
Remember, just like in 2017, the most important thing in 2018 is to do your own thing. Some trends will stay and some trends will go, but being the best version of yourself that you can be is timeless.
What better advise can Claire give us! Thank you very much Claire.
