We only have a few days left from 2017, which was a revolutionary year on many levels. From activism and women’s empowerment to rising of inclusivity in beauty and fashion, it’s safe to say that we did a lot of good things this past year. After so many innovative trends we loved and hated, the question is what to expect for 2018? More revolution is one of the answers, but take a look what else might go big in beauty in 2018.
Rihanna was one of the main advocates for beauty inclusivity in 2017 with her Fenty Beauty brand that dropped 40 shades of foundation. Huda Beauty followed up with 30 shade foundation range. Furthermore, Kylie Cosmetics offered whopping 30 shades of concealer, which makes it the most inclusive concealer range in the beauty industry. Color cosmetics got more inclusive as well, with brands dropping 30 to 40 lipstick shades that flatter any complexion. If brands want to be competitive in 2018, they have to try even harder than this. Aside from universal drops like these, cosmetic brands will continue to invite diverse models to front their campaigns.
J-beauty Might Beat K-beauty
We always asked ourselves what’s Asian women’s secret for a flawless skin. K-beauty gave us the answer by introducing affordable products that help you achieve the “glass skin” effect. It turns out that many K-beauty products originate from Japanese beauty secrets. Anyway, the Japanese economy wasn’t at its best lately, so companies couldn’t invest much in new ideas. On the other hand, South Korea predicted the potential and invested in the beauty industry. But now that Japanese economy is recovering, K-beauty brands might face some serious competition on the market.
Luxury Isn’t What it Used to Be
In 2018 people will get more value for their money, but will also pay less. Many innovative brands appeared on the beauty map thanks to their affordable products that actually work. Colourpop turned the beauty world upside down with its $5 super shock eyeshadows when it first launched. Now the brand is available in Sephora. The innovative skincare brand The Ordinary that’s a part of The Abnormal Beauty Company Deciem became a serious competition to luxury brands that offer similar products. With prices that start at less than $5 and thousands of positive reviews, The Ordinary became one of the most popular affordable luxury brands. The quality isn’t defined by price anymore. Expect to get more and pay less for beauty in 2018.
There is a huge misconception with the term “natural beauty” and in 2018 things are about to get more clear for us. Clean cosmetics don’t have to necessarily be natural. On the other hand, “natural” doesn’t mean harmless. We are about to upgrade our beauty routines with more clean products in 2018. Clean Beauty means free of harmful ingredients such as silicones, parabens, and sulfates (especially SLS). Unfortunately, many natural products have these in their formulas. So before you get tricked by the term “natural” read the small text on the packaging and see what’s in the product.
Products That Fight Pollution
Another important thing is anti-pollution skincare. People are getting more conscious that the pollution and other factors such as air conditioning, heating, and captive bacteria affect their skin. They are more and more interested in brands that help the skin fight against these factors.
This year we went pretty hard on some trends that is time to let them go in 2018. You know when you find a catchy song and play it on repeat – it’s the same with fashion trends. We went crazy over some pieces in 2017 that now by the end of the year is almost a love-hate relationship. But no worries, just let them go in 2018 and they will eventually appear again after a while After all, almost every trend has a comeback at a certain point.
Here are the items you need to take out of your closet in 2018:
This necklace rose to fame in 2016 after many stars accessorized their Coachella looks with chokers. Taylor Swift was one of the celebrities who popularized this trend. People went even further by tying ribbons and shoelaces around their necks. Well, we all had enough of it – chokers are most likely to go back in history where they belong.
Corset belts were back in the fashion game thanks to the Kardashians and the Jenners and their model friends the Hadid sisters. These It girls upgraded simple t-shirt dresses or shirts with big corset belts that accents the waist. Since then Instagram went crazy over it – almost every single Insta-chic flaunted a corset belt. This was an instant trend that is expected to leave the fashion scene in 2018.
These jackets were a staple in everyone’s wardrobe for too long. We don’t have anything against them, but to be honest, they have been around forever. In 2018 outwear will have more confident cuts and tailored shapes. On the other hand, oversized silhouettes are also expected to take bomber jacket’s place.
Fact: In 2018 women don’t want to suffer in the name of fashion. You have probably noticed that in the last couple of years heels are becoming lower and wider. Women in general, but especially young style icons prefer comfortable shoes. That’s why the “ugly” sneaker trend rose to fame in 2017. So, ladies, the pain is going out of style in 2018.
Summer 2017 was all about off-the-shoulder necklines. This trend even transferred to denim jackets, trench coats and sweaters. So, we went hard on off-the-shoulder necklines all year long. Therefore, we should get more creative in 2018. It’s easy to resist at this time of the year but we will see what the summer months will bring.
Not only that is not ethical, but real fur is not fashionable at all. Even Gucci‘s creative director Alessandro Michele back this statement up. Besides Gucci, Michael Kors and Jimmy Choo joined the ranks of Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney, Ralph Lauren and the online luxury retailer Net-a-porter that also have adopted this concept in the past. Young style icons are more conscious nowadays and prefer sustainable pieces that don’t harm the environment or the animals.

There are several different options that you can flaunt. The first one is a monochromatic eye look that involves only green color. You can mix several different tones and it will look gorgeous. You don’t have to add green to your whole lid. It can be a very subtle, but sophisticated look if you add a hint of color to several strategic spots. If you do add color everywhere, your makeup might appear too intense.
When it comes to this color, makeup artists usually chose the shade according to the complexion. For women that have fair skin, it is recommended to opt for lighter, paler tones of green eyeshadow. The ones that have darker skin can play with all shades including the dark emerald ones. Since there aren’t any strict rules of beauty, there can be exceptions.

White outfits in winter are always risky. Even the biggest fashion influencers can make mistakes with this color during the cold days. Usually, while the holiday season is on, we tend to wear darker colors. Black and navy shades are the favorites for many ladies. They are also the safest ones that guarantee elegant and trendy looks without mistakes. While fashion bloggers feel very confident in wearing any color at any time, that is not the case with most of us. Last winter the trends mostly involved gorgeous shades such as burgundy, brown and dark green. But this year white is taking over runways and street style looks.
It doesn’t have to be an all-white look. This color goes great with many others. For example, you can always add a pop of drama with an orange sweater or red shoes. Oversized sweaters and sweater dresses colored in white are a must-have for this winter. Many famous influencers wore them with asymmetric midi skirts and statement boots. Another thing you can try with a white outfit is a chic belt around your waist. For example, Olivia Palermo wore her sweater dress with a black coat and combat boots. She also added a belt, that gave her minimalist look a little edge.
White boots are already a thing. Starting from chic ankle ones to daring over-the-knee styles these boots will fit in most of your outfits. For those who decide to go all-white, it is smart to add accessories, bags or shoes in other colors. It can be any shade starting with gold, red, black, beige to a fun print. This small trick will avoid the possibility your monochromatic outfit to go wrong.
There are hundreds of gorgeous white coats that will make your outfit fashionable and keep you warm at the same time.

But nail art is moving in a different direction. Most of the trending nail designs this winter are minimalistic. That probably feels like the right way to go.

But that will not be the case this season. The soft nude shades are here to make a strong statement. Also, the classic red is in style at every time of the year. You can choose any shade you like starting from fierce coral red to dark and burgundy tones. Another thing to add is some simple art that will only make your manicure more fun.
