Out with the old, In with the new

     It's the start of a New Year, and as they say, "All things must come to an end."  Some trends just weren't meant to see the light of 2016.  Although we still like some of these trends and find them flattering, change is always good.  We're here to help you decide what to retire, what to upgrade and what to keep.

Contour No More

     2015 was the year of contouring.  Many makeup brands debuted their own matte contour kits.  However, along with a fresh year comes a fresh face and lighter foundations with some shimmer are encouraged.  This year makeup isn't about shaping your face,  it is about getting a natural, dewy look.  Still looking to make a statement?  No worries,  bold lips are sticking around for the new year and have maintained their popularity so get rid of those contour sticks and stock up on the lipsticks.

Peace Out, Pastels!

     Last year it was the norm to see a variety of hair colors ranging from gray to copper to bubble gum pink.  This year the natural shades are back and better than ever.  In 2015 "bronde," a combination of blonde and brown, made its debut and became a hit.  This year we are getting introduced to "ronze," a mixture of bronze brown and copper.  Try searching "ronze hair," "baby lights," or "balayage" in Pinterest for some hair inspiration.

Over-it-alls

     One trend that surprised many of us in 2015 with a comeback was overalls.  Short overalls, unbuckled overalls...whatever went!  Overalls should have been left in the 90s, the least that we can do at this point is bury them with the new year.  Replace them with their more chic cousin, the jumpsuit, or even its little sister, the romper for those warmer days.  They've both been growing in popularity the last couple of years and continue to shine bright in 2016.  Feeling nostalgic?  Embrace a jean jacket, crop top, or a choker for a 90's vibe.

Clean out those closets, let go of the past and keep moving forward!
