2016 was all about the painted bushy eyebrows which cannot be achieved without a brow kit at all.. basically making them look bigger and bolder than they are. In 2017, it will be all about natural looking eyebrows, which are a far cry from the ones in vogue right now. The eyebrow is more unrefined and natural-looking. So our advice? Grow em and stop plucking them so much till your wedding! We already saw Alia Bhatt rocking that look on Koffee with Karan's latest season!

Natural-looking eyelashes will make way for doll like lashes!

Fake eyelashes are going to be all over in 2017. While till now it's been all about real-looking falsies for brides that don't really pop out, 2017 will be all about long, doll-like eyelashes with a heavy top eyeliner. Our advice? If you haven't tried wearing them, you better get used to it for your upcoming wedding!

Neutral eyeshadow will make way for bright coloured eye makeup!

Pastel and neutral makeup tones were all over 2016, and so were smokey eyes. But 2017 is going to be all about bright and bold eye makeup colours like purples, blues and greens- so get those bright eyeshadows and eyeliners out!

Face makeup

A heavily contoured face will make way for a more natural look.

Contouring became big in 2015, and highlighting got added to that in 2016. Now 2017 is gonna be all about a natural looking face- without the heavy contouring lines on the side of the cheeks. With a neutral blush and maybe a pinch of highlighter- that's the look that's gonna rule 2017.


Matte lips will make way for glossy ones

Matte lips, especially for brides have been big for a very long time now, but things are gonna change! Glossy lips will be big next year, the good of course if that they make the lips look fuller and plumper, but the downside is that it doesn't last as long as matte lipstick!

Brown / Maroon hues will make way for Berry shades and lush lips

In 2016, there is this sudden trend of dark vampy shades like oxblood and deep maroon and browns. However, in 2017, that's gonna make way for more berry-toned colours- dark yes, but from a different family! Juicy raspberry, rich blackcurrant, or bright strawberry will be the shades that'll be in and all those wine-like shades? You can wear as much of them this winter!


Wavy hair will make way for finer, tighter curls

Wavy hair of course will not go out of fashion, but tighter curls will be in- not perm tight, but tighter than wavy! So make that curling iron your best friend!

Messy will be out, neater, neater buns will be in

One more up-and-coming trend in 2017 will be something that might not really look good on everyone- the messy hair buns won’t be big next year, but will make way for more elegant, structured buns. This seashell-shaped bun is touted to be big next year, thanks to Kate Middleton!

So get ready for the new year with style!
