What to watch for in makeup trends

2017 makeup trends, Fashionably Cleveland, Ohio

Celebrity makeup artist and MAC Cosmetics Senior Artist Michelle Clark was kind enough to sit down with us for a few minutes during her visit to the Crocker Park MAC Cosmetics store to talk about upcoming makeup trends. Here's what you need to know to stay ahead of the curve:

  • Get ready for gloss makeup to be big in everything, from lips to nails. The shinier, the better.
  • Color-wise, lighter shades - or washes - of colors are going to start popping up everywhere. Keep an eye out for soft colors, like shades of peach, being used on the cheeks and lips.
  • Monochromatic palettes are going to gain popularity as well. If you find a color that works well for your lips, try to find a different shade of the same color for your eyes.
  • Generally speaking, beauty trends start in Europe, says Michelle. If you want to predict what's going to be the next big thing in the US, take a look at what European trendsetters are doing now.
