Brow loving ladies, 2017 will be all about boyish brows—yes, straight, no-nonsense eyebrows will be everywhere this year. To get the look, thread your brows into a straight shape. Then pick the brow mascara and brow pencil of your choice to make them appear fuller. No arches, no glitter, no drama—just straight-forward, full eyebrows. Cara Delevingne inspired brows, you were good till you lasted!

Remember the days when lip gloss was a staple beauty product in every makeup kit? Those days are back again! From what it looks like, this year will be the revival of the glossy lip makeup trend; that means tinted and transparent glosses sitting pretty on our puckers once again. Although we aren’t bidding our favourite matte finish lipstick goodbye just yet, it won’t hurt to change things up with a glossy lip every once in a while.
