Makeup Trends to Ditch in 2017

All trends enjoy their moment of fame. But when they have been overdone and become monotonous, they fade away, only to be revived again. In 2017, we are finally, and thankfully, going to bid farewell to some trends that have been repeated, over and over again, for too long. For instance, highlighting your nose and cheekbones to shine like a lighthouse at night, and beauty trends like heavy contouring and baking that only look good in pictures and videos, but actually make your face look caked up. After all, your beauty routine deserves a new agenda and inspiration, and a New Year deserves a New Look!
