The holidays are an awesome time to wear your makeup, since you have multiple occasions to experiment your new style on friends and family before you unleash it onto the world. It’s also a great opportunity to show your colleagues or your crush a different side to your personality at the office party, because nobody’s one dimensional.

Why focus on lipstick? Because it is definitely the best way to really show off your look, with minimal effort.

You could spend hours trying to perfect your eyeliner, play around with eye shadow palettes, or try the newest type of eyebrow trends. But, with lipstick, all you need do is slick it onto your pout and you’re ready to go. It’s by far the simplest to use transformational tool in your makeup bag.

To help make it easier on you, we’ve tested the season’s hottest lipstick colors focusing on being classy with minimal effort.

#1 Holiday Glam

There’s a whole spectrum of reds to play with this holiday season from cherry red lips to bright red lips.  Try a bit of gloss on top of the lipstick to give a gentle glow.

#2 Berry Lips

Try a deep berry shade for a twist on a classic red lip. Shades of berry continue to define winter beauty with their versatility as a lipstick or gloss. Berry lips can transition a look from day to night. Glossy cranberry, violet or pink berry lipstick will make you feel festive even when you’re not dressed up.

#3 Vamp it up

Vampy lips can transition a look from day to night. Slick on a dark lip color and keep the rest of your makeup minimal. Done and done.

#4 Nude chic

 Matte, nude lips are as elegant as it is understated. The holiday version of no makeup-makeup: full brows, lashes, radiant skin and matte nude lips.

#5 Sweet caramel

Creamy caramel lips for a warmer alternative on a traditional nude. Try to balance them with intense eyes. We tried them with smudged eyes for a party look.

I’m sure all of you have already replenished your summer wardrobe with stripes, florals and nautical details. But it is time to think about updating your manicure, too. Every year the nails on the runaways amaze us and the spring- summer 2017 nails are no different. To make sure you stay at the forefront of the newest trends, we’ ve rounded up our favorite looks that we loved and we already tried.


Painting all your nails in one color or motif is kinda of last year. In 2017, every nail has its own identity whether one color or a hint of rainbow or mermaid powder.


A lot of designers opted for mirror also known as chrome nails. The million dollar look can be achieved by using chrome nail polish, metallic nail wraps or pigmented powder.

The ombre nail looks tough to achieve, but it is actually anything but boring! Here we tried a softer ombre of nude transitioning into pink at the tips,  like an ombre French manicure. The results are surprisingly cool.



White marbled nails are one of the latest manicure trends appearing on girls around the world. Inspired by the sophisticated look of white marble, this manicure took over the runways. With more than 155.000 posts on Instagram tagged #marblenails it’s creating quite the buzz in the digital space


A big trend this season was all about making a splash! At a lot of different runaways, manicurists created low effort yet high impact spring/ summer 2017 nail trends, by decorating the nails with just a splash of polish.


And if the newest trends are not your thing, you can easily try using, neutral, dark or bright polishes of your choice to give your nails a classic, chic effect. If you are a nude colors person, why not play around with nail shape? Instead of the classic oval or square, try coffin or ballerina nails. Less fragile than stiletto but still a bit edgy without being pointy.
