As 2016 comes to a close, it’s time to look to the future, but with an eye on the past…of course!
When it comes to weird and wonderful beauty trends, Instagram is way up there with its inspo.
Here’s the biggest, best and sometimes most weird makeup and hair styling trends the internet obsessed over on insta this year…
1. Glitter everything
Thanks to new lipstick releases and Pat McGrath’s pigments, glitter lips are officially a thing! They weren’t just an Instagram trend, they were all over runways this year too.
2. Holochrome nails
Its no surprise the entire internet became obsessed with these mesmerising nails in 2016. JUST LOOK HOW SHINY THEY ARE.
3. Glitter roots
Again, Insta just can’t resist a shiny style and glitter roots were the perfect style to look jazzy AND hide your greasy roots at all the major summer music festivals.
4. Hair rings
Because sometimes jewellery for your bod just isn’t enough.
5. Lilac hair
While crazy hair colours have been doing the rounds right from 2015, lilac hair was a big one this year. It’s a super pretty shade, so if you’re feeling good about it, then why not?
6. The glitter brow
Coming back to the eyes, brows took centrestage this year with all kinds of transformations. One being, the glitter brow.
7. Mermaid crowns
Sometimes in life you just need to be a fucking mermaid with a big ass crystal on your forehead! . . . last day to order a custom crown 💃#buildacrown www.chelseasflowercrowns.com #crystals #crystal #queencrown #quartz #halloween #glitter #faceglitter #rosequartz #blossoms #whitecrown #weddingcrown #weddingtiara #mermaid #mermaidtiara #mermaidlife #whitehair #goodvibes #festivalcrown

8. Faux freckles
The faux freckles trend was all the rage. It looked beautiful on every skin type!
9. Glitter lids
It’s not just glitter lips, glitter lids are a thing too. Again, with all the pigments being a rage! It’s something you just can’t resist.
