I’ll just be frank – how in the fresh hell is it almost 2017?! I’ll have been out of college for six years in 2017. My 10-year high school reunion is in 2017! I’ll enter the last year of my 20s in 2017. Sweet Jesus. Let’s get into the makeup talk before I go off the deep end.
Makeup trends came in hot in 2016.
“But Elise, aren’t there trends every year?”
Yes. And there are trends every season. But I saw something new in 2016 where we cycled through trends faster than we did seasons, and every makeup brand had to jump on board. I associate a lot of things with social media these days, and cycling through trends faster than ever before, I believe, directly correlates with social media. We see something on everyone, get obsessed, gobble up as much of it as we can and then it quickly reaches a saturation point. Enter next trend. Repeat. Some of these trends have the potential to carry over to 2017, and some I think (and hope) are already headed back into the Caboodles.
