The Red Lip and Other Classic Trends You Should Try at Least Once
Trends come and go. One day they're all the rage and the next day no one would even want to be caught dead rocking it. That is, until the cycle starts again. With the onset of 2017, let's take a look back at the beauty trends that have been dubbed cool since 2007 and we bet will even make a bigger splash this 2017!
In an age where full, bushy brows are all the rage, over-plucking is a big no-no, and the thicker the brows—the better. Brows have finally taken the center stage in the beauty department and we couldn't be happier. So bring out your eyebrow goodies and aim for a more natural look this year.
Deep Purple Colors
Deep purples and plums were the colors of 2007. It dominated the eyes, lips, and even the nails of girls who wanted to look fresh off the Fall/Winter runway and channel an edgier look. Ten years later and dark purples are still just as cool and edgy!
The Red Lip
A classic red lip is something that never goes out of style—even T-Swift seems to think so! And while fresh nudes and trendy pinks are fun to swipe on, nothing beats the vintage glam look only a bold red lip can do.
We love ourselves a good cat eye—especially if we can get them to match on both eyes! But in '07 the cat eye flick took a backseat and a strong Cleopatra-esque eyeliner ruled the beauty scene. Give the exaggerated eyeliner a quick 2017 update and opt for a trendy graphic liner art instead.
Feathery bangs, wispy bangs, side swept bangs—sporting a fringe was the highlight of the beauty scene back in the '07. They're great for reinvigorating an old haircut or if you're just in the mood for something new. Ten years after and still nothing has changed. A fringe can still give any girl's hair an instant dose of freshness and amazing style.
Have you tried any of these classic beauty trends already? If not, which of these do you want to try first?

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
