The beginning of the year is my favorite time to experiment with new beauty trends. By the time spring rolls around I’ve tried each one that piques my interest and know what works and what doesn’t. In the beauty world, 2017 is predicted to be a magical unicorn of a year! With glittery lips, pastel pops and pink all over, runways embraced the feminine side of makeup. But don’t worry, there are still bold hued lips and dramatic side parts to accommodate the edgier side of life. What way will you lean in ’17?
