The new year is eagerly knocking down our doorsteps, which means it’s time to say farewell to 2015 beauty trends. You know, those hideous bubble nails, and move towards the much hotter future.

2016 is gearing up to be a fabulous year, with Pantone gifting us some completely zen but totally versatile colors of the year, not to mention, major inspo from album releases by Rihanna and hopefully Beyonce!

The beauty world looks poised to give us some trends we’re beyond excited to see!

Dewey Face5 Beauty Trends You Should Try In 2016-Jawbreaker

The year 2015 was all about a perfectly flawless matte finish from ear to ear, but in the new year it’s time to do the dew. Softer and more natural dewey faced finishes are what’s in for the new year. So put your matte makeup sprays in storage and get with the glow. A nice healthy glow is a great way to start off the year on a good note.

Negative Space Nails 5 Beauty Trends You Should Try In 2016-Jawbreaker

All the hype over ornately designed nail art is about to die down. It’s all about the minimalist nail this year. New York Fashion Week models were sporting negative space manicures all over the runways and now they’ve made their way into our everyday design. Think brightly colored reverse french manicures and clean neat lines and dimensions.

Neon Eyeliner5 Beauty Trends You Should Try In 2016-Jawbreaker

The reign of the extreme winged liner is coming to an end. 2016 is looking less bold and angled and more soft and natural. So trade in those precision felt tips for a palettes and brushes, because eyeshadow is back in a big way. Blended bright pops of color are taking over your eyelids and it’s a good look.

Electric Lips5 Beauty Trends You Should Try In 2016-Jawbreaker

One trend that is definitely carrying over from 2015 is a strong lip game. We saw the peak of bold lips this past year with a heavy emphasis on deep colors and matte finishes. That trend does not look like it’s going anywhere and with dewey faces on the rise, colored lips will only get bolder.

Messy Hair5 Beauty Trends You Should Try In 2016-Jwabreaker

2016 is truly a year of the back to natural looks. Perfectly angled bobs and straight neat looks are being tossed out with the new year. Messy hair is all in this year and natural girls with fluffy twist outs are ahead of the curve. The idea is all about creating dimension, so everything from a messy top knot to second day hair.
