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 The chiseled and sharp look has become a thing of the past and it has been replaced by a soft look.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 Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
