3 of the Best Make-up Trends in 2017

December 23, 2016

This year is drawing to a close and it’s all about glitter and shimmer during this month of office parties, Christmas and New Year. So I thought I’d do a round-up of top lifestyle magazines to show what each of their beauty teams predicts will be the make-up trends for 2017.

1. Vogue

Going bold and colourful was the advice for Spring/Summer from Vogue.

The mag noticed the ‘clean face and wash-and-go hair look’ was all over the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week.

But the biggest trend was make-up inspired by the Eighties with a ‘more-is-more charm’.

“Lipstick-bright blush was applied to the temples at Kenzo and Chanel, side-swept curls made their mark at Topshop Unique, colour-pop lids at Nina Ricci.

Vogue writer Lisa Niven also noted that: “Marc Jacobs’s entire show was influenced by Eighties rave culture – with metallic eye make-up prominent.”


2. Elle
Elle Magazine is taking you back to the Sixties with predictions that statement eyes and lips will be the trend for 2017.


Star Wars make-up specialist Pat McGrath, who has her own make-up range, features heavily in Elle’s trends for Spring/Summer 2016.

The mag’s advice is to ‘mix colours to create a wine-stain lid’ and then dab it with Pat McGrath’s lab Skin Fetish Balm.
Elle notes that subtle looks are also coming in with make-up artist Monica Marmo leading the way.

Marmo used soft pinks and orangey golds in her Spring/Summer 2017 make-up looks but continued to define the face with strong eyebrows.

3. Cosmopolitan

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
