hair-trends-2018-1513112956

We hate to break it to you, but Madonna is a liar. Time does not go by so slowly (slowly), because it is almost 2018, and we're pretty sure it was just 2007 yesterday. Which means all of this year's best beauty trends, like eye-of-the-tiger hair, super-sleek middle parts, and platinum buzz cuts are about to disappear into ether of beauty trends past to make room for whole new fleet of selfie-worthy looks.

And to help you stay ahead of the curve, we got the lowdown on the exact haircuts and colors that are pretty much guaranteed to infiltrate your Instagram feeds in a few months, ahead.

Oil vs. Powder: This Shiny Makeup Trend Is an Actual Optical Illusion

galaxy-sunset-highlighter-1513105331

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a black and blue dress that looks white and gold! Or a white and gold dress that looks back and blue! It’s a world of optical illusions that make no sense, but that the internet loves! And now, we’ve reached the beauty equivalence of internet memes: highlighter that looks like slippery oil slicks…or maybe just super iridescent powder? Oil or powder? OIL OR POWDER?!

The look, which is fondly being called “galaxy sunset highlight,” has gone viral over the last few days—not really because of its inherent optical illusion (although, like, come on, people—this shit is insane), but because the combination of insanely ethereal colors looks straight-up otherworldly.

Kylie Jenner’s New Kylie Cosmetics Makeup Brushes Cost $360

screen-shot-2017-12-08-at-8-59-42-am-1512742003

Kylie Jenner announced this week that bullet lipsticks, liquid concealers, and a mobile makeup van will be joining the Kylie Cosmetics family this holiday season. Her last surprise-drop is a collection of 16 "luxury" makeup brushes launching on December 13. The word luxury is probably in the name because the collection will cost you a whopping $360.
Fans took to Instagram to praise the sleek silver design of the brushes, however, they were quick to call-out the exorbitant price tag.

How ridiculous is the $360 brush set of Kylie that doesn't even look worthy of being so expensive LOL I got more brushes in my set & for waaaay less moolah 🤦🏻‍♀️

Christmas Tree Brows Are Here To Haunt Your Holidays

christmas-tree-brows-1512681415
You better watch out / you better not cry / you better not pout / I’m telling you why / CHRISTMAS TREE BROWS ARE COMING TO RUIN YOUR LIFE. Or, at least make your life a lot more interesting. Because just in time for the holidays comes a new brow trend that’s equal parts glorious and awful, and yet completely awesome all at the same time (we subscribe to the religion of You Do You, so please, rock these eyebrows with abandonment). The brows were created by Instagram user taytay_xx (AKA YouTube vlogger Taylor R.), who managed to combine all of this year’s most terrifying brow trends (feather brows, barbed wire brows, and bauble brows) into one festive little look that’s quickly blowing up on Instagram....

Star Liner Is Here And The Internet Is Freaking Out

star-liner-eyeliner-1512595058
When you’re an Instagram-obsessed beauty freak like I am (also known as a beauty editor), you start to see trends to develop in real time: First, you’ll see an iteration of the trend during fashion week, which, after multiple months of silence, will lead to a sudden resurrection by one of your favorite makeup artists, which will then lead to a smattering of copycat photos on Instagram, which will quickly devolve into yet another divisive beauty trend of the year. And today, I bring to you the latest in Internet-created lewks: star liner. Not to be confused, of course, with NASA’s CST-100 Starliner spacecraft capsule, which is set to launch in 2018 and currently controlling the #starliner game on Instagram. No, the...

6 Dazzling Nail Ideas That Will Shine Bright This Holiday Season

00-story-image
The most wonderful time of the year has finally arrived. But before indulging in the season’s finest of celebrations, replete with toasting and mingling and cookie decorating, consider that pre-party manicure. After all, fingers will be forced front and center whilst cupping mugs of sweet cocoa and clinking champagne glasses with fellow merry makers. So before stepping under the mistletoe, dash to your nearest nail salon and turn to these six playful manicures for inspiration. Remember: It’s 2017, and this isn’t your average nail art. Tips are now artful, architectural, and even 3-D. Forgo traditional geometric lines in favor of a Gucci-inspired set. After all, ’tis the season for the house’s signature red-and-green stripes and interlocking G logo in gold. Put that 99 cents to good use and hover a...

best-highlighters-face-1511377388

Highlighting shouldn’t feel like a game of risk, and yet if you’ve ever dabbed on a seemingly innocuous formula only to be left with a white streak of glitter, then you already know how annoyingly difficult the game can be. That is, until now.

Because the best highlighters should be the ones you don’t even know are there—the ones that leave your skin looking naturally dewy, glowy, and luminescent, rather than shimmery and glittery. Seem like a tall order? Not for these five tested-and-approved highlighters, below, which are guaranteed to give you that ever-elusive, super-soft highlight, no games involved.
