6 Predicted Beauty Trends To Look Forward To In 2017

6 Predicted Beauty Trends To Look Forward To In 2017

A new year always comes with new trends and fashion statements. Just like all the other trends the beauty trends also change over the time. If you want to look stylish then it is essential that you keep up with the latest trends. The beauty trends are not just limited to the style of makeup, but also to the skincare and products that people want to use.

Here are some of the beauty trends that you should be aware of in 2017.

1. Less Emphasis on Contouring

In 2016, contouring was a big part of the beauty trends. The chiseled and sharp look has become a thing of the past and it has been replaced by a soft look. The soft look is achieved by choosing softer accents and lighter shades. You can also just opt for just a slight blush. It will make you fresh and provide you a lighter and easy-going look. If you want to add a little edginess then you can do contour with a bronzer or highlighter.

2. Hairstyles Without any Heat

2017 is expected to lean more towards hairstyles that are created without using any heat. Heat is harmful to the hair. It can make it weak and shriveled. Some people prefer straight or curly hair every day and they use a lot of products to save the hair from damage but the products are also full of chemicals. The new year is bringing the trend of opting for hairstyles that do not require heating. There are so many easy and simple hairstyles that require no heat.

The new year is also opting for natural texture of hair. There are so many new texturizing sprays that allow you to play with the natural texture of your hair. People are opting for a natural, carefree and an effortless look. 2017 is the year of using styling products that are used for enhancing the natural texture instead of suppressing it.

3. Going for Natural Ingredients

People are becoming more and more aware of the importance of ingredients used in the skin care products. People now understand that the ingredients used in the products are important, as they have a direct effect on the skin. They now prefer natural extracts to achieve beauty resolutions instead of using artificial methods like fake eyelashes. (They prefer growing eyelashes naturally.)

4. Choosing the Textures

There are so many different textures and formulations that are going to become a popular part of skincare. Sheet masks are already an important part in a beauty routine. There are going to be other masks such as bubble masks or splash masks.

5. Contrasting is the New Thing

With the new year, there seems to be two new approaches towards makeup. The trend is leaning towards vibrant and bold colors as well as going for natural and nude skin tones. The trend towards a more natural look is becoming popular. Natural does not mean that the makeup should be dull. It just means that it should be according to your natural skin tone.

6. The Grooming Trends

Brows are a highly important part of the face and they are a big part of the world of beauty. There is a lot of time spent on making sure that the brows are the perfect shape and color. The importance of brows is not going to reduce as the new year begins. But there are going to be new techniques introduced such as brow dyeing or micro planning. The tweezers are not much of a trend anymore. The new year is bringing new ways of grooming the brows.

With these trends, start 2017 with the perfect look! What beauty trends will you be adopting?

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
