The 2016 Beauty Trends We Are Most Excited About
January is upon us, so make way for brand-new beauty trends! From look-at-me lipstick and ocean blue lids to throwback braids, the Spring 2016 runways are serving up some serious inspiration. Here are 6 of our favorite hair, makeup, and nail looks you can rock in real life!
Forget those sleek blowouts for the time being—this year is all au naturel texture and windblown body. Easy-breezy minimalism is where the hair world is headed!
Your worst enemy, of course, will be those darned flyaways, but you can keep them at bay by steeping your hair in treatments like Davines Oi/ Oil the night before. Limp-locked? You can cheat the volume that is integral to this look by stocking up on volumizers S Factor Body Booster by Bed Head. Groovy, baby!
Yes, shiny lipstick is coming back, but you can also rock the wet look on other parts of your mug! Applied across your eyelids or at the high points of your cheeks, glossy formulas will illuminate your bone structure and give you that extra-dewy, just-gymed vibe.

CERULEAN EYE SHADOW
Believe it or not, your mom’s blue eye makeup might be the biggest comeback story of the year. No longer a fashion faux pas, it popped up during the latest New York Fashion Week in vivid strokes of oceanic liner and aqua-dusted lids. Just sayin’, all shades of blue complement brown-eyed girls.

LIQUID-CHROME TIPS & TOES
We were already wearing molten metallics on our lids in 2015, and this year, the trend has reached our tips and toes. Paint your nails copper, silver, and gold—anything that resembles precious metals, really.
To dress up this year’s undone hairstyles, adorn them with ornate headbands and bejewelled barrettes. The unlikely combination oozes modern romance.
