There’s something about the springtime that evokes the urge to refresh and start anew — whether it be in our lives, in our homes, in our wardrobes or in our makeup bags. With Spring Equinox dancing on the horizon (it’s less than a week away!) and new beauty launches galore, I’m thrilled to bring you my Spring 2017 Beauty Trend Guide in partnership with Sephora Canada! Next to holiday, spring is my favourite time of year for beauty. This season there are so many limited edition collections, trends to explore and innovative formulas to discover — this post has been months in the making and I can’t wait to share my favourites with you!
Whether you’re looking for a few new products to inject the spirit of spring into your beauty routine or a crash course on my favourite beauty trends and how to wear them, you can find it in my Spring 2017 Beauty Trend Guide! This spring beauty mega post is dedicated to bringing you the best of the best across categories. I’m also chatting about the highlighting craze, metallic textures, the un-nude lip, a new wave of hybrid liquid lipsticks, my favourite products for a springtime flush and how I’ve been nursing my nails back to health after years of gel polish! You know the drill — if you have an hour to spare, pour yourself a chilled glass of rosé or a cup of herbal tea, get comfy and let’s chat about all things spring beauty!
With the weather in Calgary being all sorts of unpredictable this year, I had originally planned to share this look with you earlier this autumn as the last installment in my Autumn Trend Guides. The intense cold snap we experienced a couple of weeks ago made shooting new style content outside almost impossible — but thankfully we experienced a few above 0℃ days earlier this week, so I jumped at the chance to get out there and snap a few photos. It actually worked out perfectly, since this last Trend Guide is all about transitioning some of autumns biggest trends into winter!
Today I’m sharing 10 of my favourite styles that are here to stay as temperatures drop — we’re talking novelty denim, metallics, block heels, mini bags, faux fur, pompoms, cold shoulders, velvet, longline and ultra dark, oversized shades! I’m also officially introducing you to Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2017, Greenery, and chatting about different ways to incorporate it into your personal style this season. If you’re ready to refresh your wardrobe for 2017 (or are looking for some holiday style inspiration), these are my top recommendations for trends that are here to stay!
