I was asked by Ellisons to create a blog post on what beauty products will be popular in 2017 and I thought it was a fun thing to do. I am not an expert in this area by any stretch of the imagination, but I love using my beauty products. I love using day to day cleaning products, make up and tanning products (which I haven’t used yet this year).
My top beauty products for 2017
Everyone loves to be bronzed when the sun starts to shine and I am not exception. I use a variety of different tanning products. My favourite is a mist spray or a foam but I think the new in-shower gradual tanning products are going to be a big hit, you can find a lot of tanning supplies from Ellisons and there are many different types/prices of tanning products too.
I think bright glossy lips are going to be a big thing this year, corals and pinks are always big winners for Spring and Summer. They make me feel like I am going on holiday. I love corals at the moment, lip gloss is a favourite as it really brings a nice shimmer to your face.
Eyebrows are huge at the moment, big and defined eyebrows. I can’t help but stare at them and work out how they got to be so perfect. I managed to destroy mine the other week and ended up with a line, which I hated. I now cannot go anywhere without an eyebrow powder kit!
At the end of the busy week when you want to give your beautiful face a little break, a nice face mask can be really refreshing. I love idea of the new sheet masks, which work in a similar way but the sheets are soaked in serums and are quick and easy to use.
Heat protection for hair
As much as I love my GHD’s, I do not use them very often. The heat isn’t good for my hair and so I try to use them as little as possible. I always leave my hair to dry naturally, unless on the odd occasion I need to rush. I probably blow dry my hair two or three times a year. I tend to shower later in the evening and leave my hair drying throughout the night. Then when I wake in the morning, I can use a quick salt spray product to accentuate the loose curls that my hair naturally has. I am not one for making it completely straight anymore. I always use a heat protection spray when I do have to use my GHD’s.
Drinking more water
The biggest thing for 2017 is this push on what you are on the inside, makes what you are on the outside. There is a big health kick sweeping the nation and keeping your body and mind healthy is just as important as the lip gloss in your handbag. Making sure I eat well, including my five a day and drinking plenty of water is the top of my to do list for 2017. I think drinking water is going to be bigger this year, with people trying to drink their 7 to 8 glasses a day.
I would love to know if you have any fun guesses as to what is going to be big this year in the beauty industry, please leave a comment below or find me on social media with the hashtag: #expertsinbeauty.
