If you’re in touch with the makeup world, then more likely than not you have heard every other beauty blogger rave about the Artis palm brush. This makeup brush, which comes in many sizes and looks a lot like a toothbrush at first, is actually meant to apply foundation or any other form of makeup as smoothly as possible on the skin without leaving a single streak! And unlike a regular makeup brush, it’s designed to be held more comfortably, which explains the toothbrush-like handle.

Korean beauty products have had a great influence on the beauty market due to their superb face masks, serums, and other products, but they aren’t always easy to obtain. That is until now. Target just included a new Korean beauty brand called Peach & Lily, which is a popular Korean beauty site founded by Alicia Yoon. The official launch is on January 22nd and best of all, most of the products are under $30! One product that we’re excited about is the Pore Cleansing Blackhead Bubble Pack! This product is made with 100% natural charcoal powder, sparkling water, and small oxygen bubbles to permeate the skin and release clogged pores, and thus leaving you with a refreshing feel.

If the fashion at the Golden Globes is an indicator of future trends, then we’re predicting that 2017 is the year to be pretty in pink! Many stars came out on the red carpet in stunning pale pink dresses that were elegant to say the least. One of the biggest standouts was Lily Collins in a delicately embroidered Zuhair Murad Couture dress. We love the illusion neckline and the small sequins and floral pattern throughout the beautiful pink tulle dress. Felicity Jones also opted for an elegant sheer pink dress complete with a black lined ruffle neckline and a bow belt to extenuate the waist. Carrie Underwood took a risk at the Golden Globes this year in a pink Iris Serban dress that also included ruffle detailing at the top but a simple sheath silhouette for the bottom.

In 2017, it’s time to stay away from the ordinary and that starts with your tights. Instead of sticking to the classic opaque black tights, why not give your wardrobe a rough edge with fishnets? Now you’re probably thinking that fishnets are too grungy or hard to pull off, but in fact there are many ways to style it in a way that any fashion girl can wear it! For example, try pairing fishnets underneath your boyfriend jeans that include huge holes in them so that the fishnet can peek through. Or take a note from Lainy Hedaya and wear fishnet socks with a pair of black heels for an edgy lady-like look. Or forget the tights altogether and wear a fishnet top like model Aymeline Valade and pair it with a black blazer and trousers for a classy look. How would you wear fishnets?

Everyone knows that dry shampoo is a girl’s best friend since it saves a lot of time, but lately beauty gurus are reaching towards something a little different: Lemonhead’s Space Dust glitter dry shampoo. This isn’t your regular dry shampoo either since it’s not a spray, but more like a glittery powder that just happens to soak up grease and texturizes your hair. To create a slight shimmer all over your hair, try putting a dime size amount in your hair and spreading the glitter all throughout your roots and ends. If you want a bolder look for your New Year’s Eve party then try rocking glittery roots by sporting a parted up-do and concentrating the glitter all along the parted roots!

One trend that celebrities can’t get enough of is off-the-shoulder tops and dresses! Despite the fact that we are getting straight into the winter months, that hasn’t stopped the trend from continuing on since the summer. The best part about the off-the-shoulder trend is that it can be worn in a casual setting or in a formal setting depending on the design. Olivia Palermo sported a cotton off-the-shoulder top with puffed sleeves and cropped dark denim with pointed flats for a laid back look. Gigi Hadid on the other hand, wore a gorgeous white lace long sleeve off-the-shoulder dress for the American Music Awards for a more formal look. Emma Watson wore the trend in-between the two extremes in a white off-the-shoulder top with mesh sleeves paired with black trousers and short black heels. To rock this trend at holiday parties, try wearing an off-the-shoulder dress in velvet!

This winter it’s all about the full length coats! And we don’t just mean a little long, but almost to the floor long!

The shirt also included a navy blue neck tie detail. Nicki Minaj took the cover of Marie Claire magazine earlier this year in a suede powder blue turtle-neck top that had large ruffles as the centerpiece of the top. Another way that ruffles have been seen this year is on the sleeve from the elbow to the wrist for a flouncy look.

Ever wondered why many Victoria Secret models posted photos of themselves in gold face masks last week? Well it turns out that this pre-runway ritual is not only photo-worthy, but it is said to have many benefits such as a boost in complexion, skin tone, texture, and elasticity. The 24 karat gold leaf treatment is also known to help slow down the process of wrinkling and aging as well as reducing inflammation. But is it worth $220 for three mask treatments? That is up for debate. However, a much more affordable option would be the sheet masks by Peter Thomas Roth which are infused with gold instead of being made entirely out of pure gold for a great price of $68 for six masks! Time for a luxurious spa day like the VS Angels!

This darker version is perfect for fall and winter and requires much less maintenance than the lighter version.

Though this look is more subtle, you’ll still get the shimmery hues of rose gold in the light!
