6. Highlight on fleek
Now here is a beauty trend that was EXPLOITED in 2017- Highlighters. While supple, dewy and healthy looking skin is always a good thing, people went bonkers with the trend of highlighters, from caking and baking your face with layers and layers of highlighters to rainbow highlighters, 2017 was the year to go all out!
7. Bold eyebrows
Starting off as a running joke on Vine, "eyebrows on fleek" grew to be a beauty phenomenon. An almost non-existent line, framing your face- Snipped, plucked and threaded into oblivion was the trend back in the day.
