The Lipstick League Question of the Week
What sort of beauty trends do you predict will be popular in 2017?
G's answer: I think that facial masks of every kind are going to be big again this year, and we'll probably see more metallic finishes in cosmetics and nail polish. I also think that the no-heat trend in haircare is going to explode this year, with lots of different offerings for no-heat styling products (and I could not be happier about that since I don't use heat styling). And I really, really, really hope that a no-filter trend is on the horizon for 2017. I don't know about you, but I'm tired of seeing filtered and air-brushed skin every time I open my Instagram. I want to see beautiful REAL skin, with visible pores, fine lines, freckles, beauty marks, etc. I just want to see actual human skin for a change, and makeup looks that are achievable for the everyday person (without the help of five filters).
