Inspiring Beauty Trends Of Winter

While the holiday season is nearly over, there’s still a whole lot of winter left to go. (The first day of spring isn’t until March 20, y’all.) If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to revamp your closet and makeup routine, allow the beauty trends of winter to inspire your next shopping trip.

Even if you do not spend a lot of time on Pinterest, you have to admit that it is a great destination for discovering new ideas and getting some answers, whether it’s a unique way to hang your frames on a wall or an easy tutorial for how to contour your face correctly. If you have a question you’ve been thinking about or are in need of a bright idea, there’s likely at least one pinned photo or chart out there for you and your needs.

While there are millions of different pins on Pinterest, there are some trends that have been popping up more than others this winter season. According to the Pinterest team, staying warm and cozy (and stylish) is a top priority for its users, with items like shearling jackets, turtleneck sweaters, and velvet dresses being pinned to more and more boards. On the beauty side, battling dry winter skin and keeping hydrated appears to be a top priority — face oils and cream beauty products (versus powders) are finding popularity on the app.

Here is the full list of what’s trending for winter 2017/2018. If you haven’t already pinned these, prepare to make room on those inspiration boards.
