That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 1.16.16
Question of the Week: What sort of beauty trends do you predict will be popular in 2017?
Answer: I think everything is going to be a little easier for us in 2017, at least beauty wise. Contouring (thank god!) and matte finishes will make way for clean, dewy skin, cellophane shades (bright and glossy see-through color) and washes of color. Despite what Instagram may tell you, I think people are looking for easy, pretty and yeah, more natural beauty.
