Beauty / Biggest Ideas of 2017 2 Bangs, Baby I have yet to venture into bangs territory—at least in my adult life. But with celebs like Selena Gomez and Georgia May Jagger making the chop (and looking this good), I’m calling my stylist this very moment. These are a few of the styles I’m considering. —J.M. SIDESWEPT The gateway bang; keep them superlong like Gomez’s. LONG & BLUNT Do like Jennifer Hudson and taper the sides for drama. SHORT & BLUNT Pair mini bangs with long waves, as at the Monse show. LAYERED Go for a piecey rock ’n’ roll vibe like Jagger’s. CHOPPY Cut ’em straight across, as at Zero + Maria Cornejo. Do Your SKIN New lightweight matte finishing powders blend right in and cut down shine—without masking. Try Nyx #nofilter Finishing Powder ($12, nyx cosmetics .com), which comes in 15 shades. Focus on the T-zone and avoid the sides of your face to prevent flat-looking skin. 38 The New Matte Sure, you can do the full-face matte makeup that’s all over social media. But let’s be real: Matte everything can be a little harsh in daylight. My approach is to focus on a single feature at a time. —Katheryn Erickson, @kateeerickson 3 4 5 Or Your EYES I’m feeling the nineties all-matte-lids thing. My product of choice is the palette from Urban Decay, above, which contains 12 neutral matte hues ranging from creamy vanilla to pastel mauve to rich chocolate brown. Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette for eyes ($54, sephora .com) Or Your LIPS Liquid matte lipsticks need no introduction, but this is new: powder lip color. Apply a small amount of CLE Cosmetics Melting Lip Powder ($20, on top of lip balm. It transforms into a creamy texture for a lightly stained effect. Gorgeous! 6 Hair for Days I first started noticing Joni Mitchelllength strands on the streets; then more Rapunzel looks showed up at Proenza Schouler’s and Prada’s spring shows. All of this made me regret cutting my own very long hair last spring. Now I want it back! Here’s my plan. A growth booster: specifically, Nutrafol, which has vitamin E and antiinflammatories to help grow thicker, healthier hair ( Masks: Every other wash, I use the Shu Uemura mask, below, instead of conditioner to keep ends less prone to breakage. Dry dustings: That’s hairdresser lingo for lightly trimming only the frayed ends; I go every six weeks. —K.E. Shu Uemura Urban Moisture Deep Treatment ($68, shuuemura

KARDASHIAN WEST: MINDY SMALL/FILMMAGIC. JASON WU OMBRE LIP: VICTOR VIRGILE/GAMMA-RAPHO VIA GETTY IMAGES. ALEXANDER WANG SURF GIRL BLONDES (3): SPENCER C. AMONWATVORAKUL. STILLS: JOSEPHINE SCHIELE Everything Lasers If you’ve spent any time near a Kardashian social media account, you know that the world of lasers (and other energy devices) now includes everything from neck-wrinkle treatments to, er, vagina tightening (not something I’m endorsing). That said, I’ve seen laser technology, and the results, really improve in recent years. I asked a trusted pro, New York City dermatologist Anne Chapas, M.D., what’s most popu lar right now. Here, the treatments I’d recommend to friends. —Simone Kitchens, @simonekitchens 7 A good entry treatment—and one doctors like—is the Clear + Brilliant laser, which improves tone and texture. “It creates new collagen and gives you a glow,” Dr. Chapas says (about $600 per session). For home treatments, she suggests using Tria Age- Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser ($249, daily for visible results. 8 If you’re doing regular morning underarm shaves, constant leg-hair maintenance, and routine bikini waxes—well, think of all the other ways you could use that time. Recent advances mean treatments work on almost all skin types; five or six required treatments range from $350 to $1,440 (variable by body area). 9 Skin Resurfacing You might be into the look of your scar—or not— but some scar tissue can become so contracted that it can make movement difficult, Dr. Chapas tells me. She recommends a radio frequency microneedling treatment called Intensif (from $750 per visit; expect one to three sessions). 10 Laser Hair Removal Scar Therapy Tattoo Removal Ink regret? The reversal options have come a long way. Lasers like PicoWay remove more ink in one session by treating the area multiple times, Dr. Chapas says (about $300 to $1,000 per visit; you may need a few sessions). 1The classic red lip—yeah, I’m into it. But this year I’m also all about stepping things up. And I found the perfect inspo backstage at Jason Wu: ombré—and a wearable ombré lip at that, not the extreme made-for- Instagram-only variety. How to do it? Makeup artist Yadim layered two mattes. Start with a bold red shade (he used Maybelline New York Color Blur in Cherry Cherry Bang Bang, $9) along the perimeter of lips to define the shape, then fill in the center with a brighter orangey tone (try Maybelline New York The Loaded Bolds in Orange Danger, above, $7, both at drugstores). For added punch (which I’ll probably skip for the office), he finished with a glossy, vibrant orange highlight (one of my favorites is Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in A-Go-Go, $20, sephora .com). —Erin Reimel, @erin_reimel 1 Ombré Fiery Lips 12 Surf GirlBlonde Visual proof that bleached hair works on anyone: Alexander Wang’s spring show, where 18 models with wildly different styles—from close cropped to choppy—all got their own version of the beachy look. To keep blonde bright, I like Redken Blonde Idol Custom-Tone conditioner ($32, —J.M. 39
