The year 2017 was all about experimenting with neon colors and bold cuts. Ramps were flooded with super sleek and straight hairdos, fancy hair accessories and pigtails which were short-lived.

This year we are looking forward more practical and wearable hairstyles. Imagine shorter cuts, above jaw fringes and bob look. Who else carries this better than Duchess of Cambridge.

Updo throwback:

Boy cuts and Bobs:

Brand Ambassador of Charles Worthington , Ken O’ Rourke has predicted that boyish looks and bowl cuts will make a major come back in the year 2018. Think of Linda Evangelista from ‘80s her type of looks . If you ask me , it’s a relief that it’s coming back as its great for all ages and the best thing is they require less amount of hair styling when you are on the go . so win-win.

Windy affair:

Nothing can make you look your best then your natural texture. This season doesn’t mean undone hairdo’s instead it will all be about accepting your natural looks. Forget the tong waves, perfectly rolled waves and come to a rawer look which will be more natural to features.

You can flip it sideways like an 80s fashion or use a little bit of hair product of your choice. Styles are unlimited with that kind of look.

Plaits and tails:

How can we not include those plaits and long tails in our spring summer fashion trends? They are so classy that they almost go with every look. Much sleeker, cleaner and trendy they are. They are sure to stay this season.

I hope this inspired you all as we step into Spring.

According to the brand, the leaking of it has ruined what the brand worked hard for in the terms of promotion of the product. Despite this unhappy incident, the palette is stunning. It will be called “Soft Glam” and was supposed to be launched in March. The leak might just speed things up and the palette might become available just in time for Valentines’ but it has not been confirmed yet. The shades feature beautiful neutrals, mauves and pink hues. The packaging’s is attracting and cool.

Mario x Kim K. eyeshadow palette

When the queen of makeup is in question, it is without a doubt that whatever she announces or launches will be sold out within few minutes. This will be the case too with the collaboration she is announcing with her makeup artist Mario. They have been working together on eyeshadows palette and they are still keeping the shades secret. The packaging will allow you to arrange the shades as you like and refill them. This will be done by the magnetic pans positioned in the Z-palette. The launching date still remains a secret but many speculate it will be just in time for the Valentines.

CLE Cosmetics Melting Lip Powder

Innovations are very welcome in the makeup industry and if you are that lucky to get your hands on that specific products, then you have the advantage to review it and maybe grow your Instagram popularity. As a new product, announced this year, are the CLE Cosmetics Melting Lip Powders. These powders, using an innovative technology and through heat activation, are turning into long-wearing lip tints. The warmth of the lips creates the magic. The powder comes in four beautiful shades: Milk Chocolate, Barbie pink, Cherry red and Ultra summer.

Kat Von D studded kiss lipsticks

Few days ago, Kat Von D launched her lipsticks with a new formula and 40 new shades. The colors are ranging from red, purples, blues, pinks and neutrals. There is the famous White Out that was introduced as a base and provides nice shades when combined with other shades. This set of new lipsticks will feature 3 finishes – satin-matte, glimmer and metallic. The lipsticks will be weightless, long-wearing and creamy, an updated and improved version of the previous ones. They remain vegan and cruelty-free.

I hope this has inspired all you makeup lovers out there to try a new look this Valentine’s.

3.What is even trendier this season? Short hair and beach waves! Since most the clothes in party season are full of sequence and bright bold colors, you really don’t want to overdo your look, so get on board with the less is more approach, and get those bouncy beach waves instead. For variations, you can always try twisting your front bangs or even braiding them!
