7 Shoe Styles Every Man Should Own

By : Trent Bartlett

Guide To Mens Dress Shoes

The cliché goes that women usually have a good selection shoes in their wardrobe. If you want to risk starting an argument, pick out a random shoe from your girlfriend’s collection and ask her when she last wore it. Dozens of shoes, some of which never worn, yet all of them somehow necessary. Men are usually a little more practical with their shoe collection. The well-dressed gent need not worry himself with so many pairs of shoes.

We’ve put together a practical list of shoes that every man should own. These styles will cover you in almost any occasion. Of course, we are not saying that you must limit yourself to only these styles, but they do make for a solid base to your wardrobe. From sneakers to boots, these are the seven shoe styles that should find a home in every man’s wardrobe.

The Brogue

Like so many types of dress shoes, the brogue was conceived as a far more utilitarian shoe than the way we wear it today. The holes and perforations in brogues were originally there to help drain water after crossing bogs and swamps in muddy Ireland. Today, we think of the brogue with a little more respect. Hopefully, you won’t find yourself knee-deep in muck when wearing them.

For versatility, we suggest a pair of half brogues (perforated toe cap, but no wings). Opt for dark brown brogues for formal occasions and lighter brogues for casual days. Black brogues work best with a suit but don’t get carried away and wear them to a black tie event. When buying brogues remember as a rule of thumb, the more broguing on the shoe, the less formal it is.

The Suede Chukka

Chukkas have surged back in popularity over recent years, having first become popular in the ‘40s. The shoe is a minimal, round-toe, ankle-high boot with just two or three lacing eyelets. Traditionally featuring just two panels, the style is not big on embellishments. Reject over-the-top trimmings, a suede pair of chukkas lets the texture of the shoe do its talking.

We suggest opting for a pair of tan or cream suede chukkas as the next addition to your wardrobe. These shoes find themselves at a more casual end of the pool, offering an elegant alternative to sneakers. Combine chukkas with a pair of jeans or chinos and a polo shirt for the best look. They also give you a safe option to dress down an outfit that threatened to become too formal with brogues. By combining a pair of chukkas with a sports jacket, you can make your outfit appear more approachable.

The Leather Boot

It is hard to pinpoint one style of men’s leather boots as the must-have for all wardrobes. The range of ankle high boots is so varied that one could become carried away and develop a boot-buying habit. Few shoes can convey as much personality as the boot. The great thing about a leather boot is with continued wear, the shoe begins to tell a story. While we don’t suggest wearing boots that are falling apart and covered in mud, a well-worn pair of creased leather boots have their own character.

A pair of leather lace-up boots is a must-have addition to every man’s winter wardrobe. Opt for an ankle-high, black or dark brown boot and cuff your pants for a casual, edgier aesthetic. You can also pull your trousers over the top of the boots for a more conservative look. Invest in a quality pair and they will last you years, and begin to tell their story.

The White Low Top Trainer

If you are going for a more casual look, we cannot thumb our noses at a simple pair of white low top trainers. While we will never condone the high-top ‘sneans’ that were popularised by dads everywhere, we do think a minimal pair of sneakers is a must-have for all men.

White low tops are perfect when styled with black jeans for a monochromatic look. A minimal pair of white trainers is fantastic at portraying a casual yet neat look for when boots or chukkas are too much.

The Loafer

Originally of Scandinavian origin, the loafer has developed into the sartorial styling of preppy culture and is now a streamlined shoe style. Low and lace-free, loafers are a mainstay of smart casual dress and are a favourite shoe style for summer months.

A pair of brown loafers will suit a range of palettes and will work for both casual and formal looks. Navy is also a good colour to consider and works well to complement tones like whites, beige and greens. Burgundy is also a great colour and can work well to brighten up your wardrobe. If you are after a pair of loafers to suit neutrals, beige will work well, and complements tanned skin.

The Oxford

The Oxford is characterised by its closed lacing unlike the open lacing system of the Derby shoe. The design was originally a plain shoe made of leather, but over the years it has evolved and now includes a broad range of fabrics and detailing.

Most men already own a good pair of black Oxfords which they wear for more formal occasions; however this shoe also looks great in a tan colour for casual events.

The Running Sneaker

We mentioned that we would be practical in our approach, so here are the most functional shoes in the list. A pair of comfortable but stylish running sneakers is a must-have for every wardrobe.

While running sneakers are designed to feel good, rather than look good, we do have a few tips on choosing the right pair. For versatility, choose a style with minimal branding. Bright colours also work well for a statement street look. White running shoes will appear beaten and bruised within a few weeks so a good shoe care routine will need to be in order.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends

By : Tamar Nazarian

The spring/ summer 2017 shoe trends are as interesting as the rest of the amazing lineup we have been looking at over the past two months. From the different looks that were strutted down those runways in ParisLondonNew York and Milan to the accessories and colors, along with the prints and materials, the spring 2017 fashion trends have definitely been a hit.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends

We have absolutely loved the shows that allowed you to see it and buy it now as well, something a few rather top designers had signed up for and one that we are very happy to see sweeping the industry. But more than anything else, it was the spring/ summer 2017 footwear trends that had us super excited, since they appeared in so many styles and brought back so many memories from days long gone. After all, it is not an everyday sight to have designer logos as the heels of your favorite pumps.

Spring 2017 shoes are cool and hip and sometimes even totally in line with the latest social trends as well, such as that Marc Jacobs Pokemon platform that brings the latest Pokemon Go fad to mind. We see such intriguing creations throughout that we cannot help but think that the shoes are what will make or break your wardrobe half the time at least during the spring of 2017.

They are colorful and interesting, creatively done and sometimes with a fairy tale twist, like the bright green stiletto body contouring boots at Balenciaga. We even saw crocs on the runways and it has thrown us for a spin!

The top spring/ summer 2017 shoe trends we discovered on the Fashion Week runways include but are not limited to:

#1: Platforms All Over

One of the top summer 2017 shoe trends to pull into focus is the platform trend, adding height and loveliness to just about any shoe that appears on the runways. We see them in breathable boots in monochromatic colors at Salvatore Ferragamo.

Erdem’s snakeskin combination with ankle lacing and gorgeous platform heels certainly gets us thinking about statement footwear to match with some of the plainer designer dresses we saw on those spectacular runway shows. Proenza SchoulerMiu Miu and so many more did awesome work in their adaptations of this particularly popular shoe style.

#2: Those Kitten Heels

There is nothing sexier than giving just a hint of something special, and kitten heels have long been that perfect little formula to add an arch without hurting the feet and create an air of adorable mystery. Whether those lovely spring 2017 footwear designs are branded steppers or strappy sandals worn with sheer tights, this is a look that most of the top designers have added to their repertoires.

Celine’s darling heels are way cool in and of themselves, worn with sheer stockings and adhering to the stocking with sandal trend as well. Dior’s got its logos shown strongly, while it’s all about the party in comfort at Miu Miu.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Kitten Heels

#3: Flatforms with Quirk

You know about the platforms, but how do you feel about the flat versions? With flatform heels and a flat sole, these are a platform and flats combination that took over the spring 2017 shoe trends throughout the Fashion Weeks. Brands really were not shy about flats it seems, and crazy prints with crazy embellishments were totally in.

Gucci’s Oriental designs and ankle straps were certainly something we could invest in. Flatforms with a shiny advantage are literally all glittered up at Balmain as well, giving the footwear all the height and none of the pitch we are used to with other heels.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Flatform Shoes

#4: Thin Stilettos

Okay, we get it… this is a season of contrasts. If you can wear one style, you most certainly can wear the opposite. In the clothing that meant both shoulder pads and transparent materials, both miniskirts and long midis, etc.

In shoes, it means both the chunky awesomeness that provides comfort and the slim chicness that is all about the delicate femininity of the woman. It means open-toe sandals with stockings at Altuzarra and thigh-high boots that really hug the legs tight at Gucci and Balenciaga.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Stiletto Heels

#5: Rounded Heels

There is just something about geometrically shaped heels that gets our blood boiling and seeing the spring 2017 footwear trends including the circular designs was certainly pleasantly surprising. It has appeared in previous seasons as well, but the trend combinations are what make them awesome here.

Color blocking with Jacquemus, for example, put the black, white and nude pieces that are all about chunky meets dainty at the top of the shopping list.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Rounded Heels

#6: Branded Footwear

The summer 2017 shoe trends would not be complete without the branding that has taken over the runways over the latest Fashion Week shows all over the world. We see cute little kitten heels with “J’ADIOR” straps on the Dior showcasing, while many others add their labels to the heels or all around the footwear they have their models’ feet clad in.

As for Saint Laurent, it appears that sometimes the heels are a great way to show off your logo and still appear as cool as possible.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Branded Logo Shoes

#7: Sandals With Socks

This trend was all over the runways during the spring 2017 presentations at Fashion Week. We see all kinds of creations here, from Givenchy’s laced up yellow sandals worn with thick brown socks to a look that is entirely unexpected, creating a boot out of a synthetic sock-like material that is worn with strappy barely there stiletto sandals.

Celine’s funky slider and latex sock looks created sock boots that are simply to die for. We have to admit though, sometimes the stockings with sandals really was cool, especially when the stockings were graffiti tights and the sandals had some really funky heels as per Libertine’s imaginings brought to the New York runway.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Sandals with Socks

#8: Socks and Boots

We see socks and sandals quite a bit, but it is the socks and boots that is the top trend to focus on here, whether as separates or fused together. There are some incredibly gorgeous pieces that really look so very lovely on the legs, emphasizing the best parts of the lower limbs and creating some intriguing textures with corresponding coloring.

Fendi’s very fall-like footwear is definitely at the top of the list here, whereas we see something that is less expected, with more loafer-like entirely synthetic shoes mixed in with over-the-knee sock-like additions that are totally a main part of the DKNY footwear masterpieces.

Western boots and colorful socks can also be paired together quite comfortably this spring if Anna Sui’s fashion sense is at all to be taken into consideration.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Boots with Socks

#9: Sheer Tights with Strappy Sandals

Sheer socks and tights are also in this season and we are wondering what to do with it. After all, it has been so taboo to wear them sheer with sandals for so long, it is strange to see this trend taking center stage.

Open toes and ankle straps are not only okay, but entirely recommended for the spring and summer of 2017! That was clearly seen at Celine, where banana yellow single-toe-strap and ankle-strap sandals were paired with sheer black stockings. Altuzarra’s red divinity also proves that stockings can be colorful and playful and also have dark toe covers. Who would have thought?

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Sandals with Tights

#10: Those Sock Boots

Okay, we saw boots with socks and some other funky designs, but this really does need its own category. It is a boot that literally looks like it is made from a sock in a shoe or something similar, it is a cozy trend and a sometimes rather not so pretty one as we noticed at Loewe. Fendi had some awesome athleisure though, and Dolce & Gabbana’s designs were super hot, black lace stilettoes and all.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Sock Boots

#11: Shiny Shoe Goodness

We like to shine our boots and shoes and go out for the night or day all the time. But when that shine suddenly takes on a new meaning, it appears that it is a party day in and day out. Whether we are talking ruffles on pretty stilettos like with Saint Laurent or gold and silver disco-ready flatforms from Balmain, this is one spring/ summer 2017 shoe trend that we can really have a lot of fun with, especially if we make the shoes the statement of the outfit for the day.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Metallic & Shiny Shoes

#12: Breathable Footwear

We see a lot of boots and shoes especially that allow for breathing room with holes all over or a mesh creation. We even see Crocs throughout the weeks with their holes that allow the feet to really let the air in. Salvatore Ferragamo brought in the monochromatic color trend along with the breathable boots, while black lace sock boots came into effect on the Dolce & Gabbana runway, looking totally fabulous.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Cutouts & Mesh

#13: Tying/ Strapping Round the Ankles

It appears that the ankles are a great part of the body to emphasize come spring 2017. Whether we are looking at thick wraparounds in leather or thicker single straps in snakeskin, we see many top designers creating their masterpieces in a way that both shows off skin and covers beautifully, sometime chunky, sometimes dainty, but very often bringing the gaze to that slimmest part of the legs.

House of Holland’s panel play and gingham designs are really cool, the looks made light and springy and entirely perfect with this ankle strapped trend. From the ruffles of Saint Laurent to the buckles of Attico, the wrapping around the ankle trend is as huge as it can get.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Ankle Straps & Ties

#14: Laced up and Bound

We get to see a whole lot of spring/ summer 2017 shoe trends, where the shoes are laced up either tightly or showing whatever is underneath, worn with socks and stockings and open backs or simply looking awesome in the sandals or boots sections. Givenchy gives us some intriguing designs to choose from, while it was all about the athletic boots come Dior’s sexy presentations.

As for Versace, it is athleisure at its finest, with a whole lot of fashionable heel options, the colors of the boot laces matching the clothing and handbags perfectly. As for the Western trend that was huge for the spring as well, there are some boots to match it, with J.W. Anderson offering us a range of mid-calf laced up boots in suede and leather.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Lace-Up Shoes

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Lace-Up Shoes

#15: Open Back Footwear

Whether as part of the chunky collections with ankle straps that are nice and thick, or with thin strands around that slender area and riddled with colors and patterns, the open back footwear is totally in and we are not just talking mules either, though those certainly do make an appearance.

Givenchy gives the trend a whole new look really with laced up mules that sport kitten heels and are worn with thick socks underneath. Pretty snazzy, if you ask me.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Open-Back Shoes

#16: The Bane of the “Ugly” Shoes

What makes a shoe ugly? That is hard to say and is entirely subjective, but many have called Crocs and Uggs utter abominations, despite them being some of the most comfortable footwear on the market.

It creates strong emotions for or against really, and seeing the Crocs at Christopher Kaneor the Uggs at Preen definitely has us either thanking or cursing the designers. No matter what one thinks about these “ugly” creations, they are in style, they are going to be on the streets, and it is just best to embrace it all.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Ugly Shoes & Crocs

#17: Making the Varsity Team

Athletic inspirations have been huge all across the runway trends, from the clothing to the accessories and most especially the spring/ summer 2017 shoe trends. It is an unexpected footwear option but one which we certainly can enjoy to the maximum. Whether we are looking at boxer boots or built-in socks, the season is calling for sneakers.

White boots that go up to the knees, all laced up, appear at Dior in a lovely manner, whereas DKNY makes athleisure look so very comfortable that fashion has met its match. Fendi’s sock and boot combination is by far one of our very favorites though, even if we think this would totally look better as part of the Christmas trends as opposed to the spring of 2017.

The white sneakers in general caught peoples’ attention and have been given their own category time and again. Tommy Hilfiger has some pretty awesome pieces in this style along with Bands of Outsiders and Lacoste.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Sports Shoes

#18: Leather for Warm Weather

Vibrant shades are a common look for the spring 2017 shoe trends, and it is the leather boots from the winter season that seem to make a very pronounced appearance on the Fashion Week runways.

Whether we are looking at the square toes of Balenciaga, or the rounded versions in orange coming up to the ankles at Celine, warm weather boots are a real thing and the colors are what make them so attractive for the average fashion lover. Honestly, near all the boots, and there were quite a few, were leather designed and meant to keep you fashionably warm.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Leather Shoes & Boots

#19: Skinning Snakes

There is a rather intriguing spring 2017 footwear trend out there and it has everything to do with snakeskin. Really interesting creations have been brought to the Fashion Week runways as such, including some crazy picks from Marc Jacobs and some half and half looks as per Louis Vuitton, appearing very tastefully to mix green snakeskin across the back of the foot with nude triangle toe leather over the front.

Snakeskin and rivets looks pretty amazing at 3.1 Phillip Lim in the bootie section, while Rodarte’s panel play on the boots was more than appealing, with the combination of simple leather and snakeskin.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Snakeskin Shoes & Boots

#20: Shoes with Funky Heels

Non-geometric designs are a common theme to shoes during every Fashion Week and it was no less a trend during the spring 2017 offerings. Loewe rather enjoys playing with the heels it appears and it was cool to see the slight swirls there.

It got totally Western when we consider the Alexander McQueen shiny chrome additions with rivets, as well as the slightly askew totally square appearing heels at J.W. Anderson. Saint Laurent had heels made out in the brand’s logo that looked pretty rad as well.

And if anyone is into circular kitten heels with ribbons and open toes, Dries Van Noten has the right fit, or not, for you. Hood by Air even had heels that imitated the actual shoes, while Kenzo brought springs to barely there red strappy sandals. As for having wales on the heels, we can thank Thom Browne for that.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Shoes with Funky Heels

#21: Thigh-High Boots

Thigh highs were not as common as we would have thought when it comes to the spring/ summer 2017 shoe trends, but the body contouring style of some of the pieces, particularly seen at Gucci and Balenciaga were certainly something to catch the eyes. They were sexy and like second skins, seen in spandex and patent leather, the latex culture gaining new right out of them. Really, it was quite intriguing and way too beautiful to pass up.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Thigh-High Boots

#22: Slider Comfort Fantasy

Flip-flops were once a huge thing on the streets, particularly in the ‘90s. Now, we have some funky sliders appearing instead, something we noticed last spring as well. They are flats with a laid back presentation and updated for the summer with sequins and floral designs.

PradaLanvin, Dolce & Gabbana, as well as Miu Miu have all joined the fantasy slider club and it’s so dang comfortable. One of our favorite slider looks though came from Tory Burchand it was a pearly creation that was so dearly feminine we could not look away.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Slide Sandals

#23: Bows, Feathers, Ruffles and Ribbons

Shiny and ruffled would not be the first choice of embellishment that we would pick for the spring/ summer 2017 shoes, but Saint Laurent certainly makes good use of the eccentricity of the style on simple stiletto ankle-bound shoes in black that make the legs look gorgeous.

The ruffles on footwear design actually appears multiple times on different shows throughout the Fashion Weeks, landing it among the top summer 2017 shoe trends. We get to see bows and ribbons all around as well, with some very lovely footwear creations, such as the comfortable looking flower embellished Dries Van Noten shoes or the feathery creations that almost look like home slippers at Anna Sui.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Ruffles, Bow & Feather Embellished Shoes

#24: Footwear for the Future

We saw some really futuristic boots as well on the runways, to match with the futuristic clothing designs that were ample. Storm troopers and space warriors were rather a common look it appears, with Chanel channeling the inner Star Wars fighter, Louis Vuitton focusing on the half leather and half reptile creations, and Dior delving into futuristic silver athleisure.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Futuristic Shoes

#25: Oriental Inspirations

Chinese and Japanese inspirations came to the spring/ summer 2017 shoes and sandals throughout the Fashion Week shows around the world, from strappy traditional-meets-flatform looks at Gucci to the totally synthetic comfort flatforms at Prada and the shiny version with ankle straps at Versace. The neo-geta sandals were great reinterpretations and spotted on catwalks everywhere.

Spring/ Summer 2017 Shoe Trends: Oriental Neo-Geta Shoes

#26: Moroccan Slippers

Also known as Babouche slippers, there were a whole lot of the flat grandmother style pieces that brought the Middle East to mind. It is a minimalist version this time around though and over appeared in color blocks or simple black, seen beautifully covering the feet at Narciso Rodriguez, showing off the heels at Dior and offering a bit of toe cleavage at Haider Ackermann as well.

They are quite lovely to wear out when you want to keep your height low, and totally comfortable to be getting your daily chores done while feeling like a mature woman.

Spring 2017 makeup trends to try right now

By : Rebecca Fearn

This Spring/Summer, makeup and beauty took a turn. In continuation from last season’s ‘you-do-you’ approach, it was less about trends and more about a new feeling of ‘whatever goes’. In saying that, there were still noticeable running themes throughout the shows.

Colour took centre stage on the eyes and the lips, with bright red pouts, glistening glitter and electric hues on the eyes all spotted backstage. Nails and skin were pared-down but incredibly chic, with the words ‘athletic’ and ‘radiant’ constantly springing to mind.

The most important message we took away from Spring/Summer 2017 was that of personality. It’s no longer about strictly adhering to a fixed set of trends, it’s about playing with what you’ve got.

Take a look at the most prominent makeup and beauty looks for Spring/Summer 2017…

As we approach the new year, let’s take a moment to thank 2016 for an epic year in makeup: rainbow highlighters, “knife liner,” and, of course, more lip kits than you can shake a doe-footed wand at. We’re also happy to be packing away those memories as we ask celebrity and editorial makeup artists Daniel Martin, Nina Park, and Patrick Ta to name their top makeup trends for 2017 that are sure to make an appearance on celebrities, runways, Snaps, and Instas everywhere.

1Lip Gloss
<p>
"Last year was all about the matte lip, but I want to bring<br>
gloss back," says Ta. Park wholeheartedly agrees: "Liquid matte lips dominated<br>
the last few years, but lipgloss is a refreshing change giving dimension,<br>
shine, and youth." And if Glossier's holiday set, which included a shamelessly<br>
shiny gloss, is any sign, they are right on trend.&nbsp;</p><p><span class="redactor-invisible-space" data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="span" data-redactor-class="redactor-invisible-space"></span></p>

Park wholeheartedly agrees: “Liquid matte lips dominated the last few years, but lip gloss is a refreshing change giving dimension, shine, and youth.” And if Glossier’s holiday set, which included a shamelessly shiny gloss, is any sign, they are right on trend.

2Skin That Breathes
<p>In 2017, "we're taking it back to the most important step:<br>
achieving healthy, radiant, conditioned skin," says Park. "No more strobing,<br>
baking or contour, let your skin breathe." Ta recommends pairing natural and<br>
bold: "Skin that's fresh and glowy paired with bold eyes or bold lips." What<br>
kind of bold lip this year, you ask? Click next….</p><p><span class="redactor-invisible-space" data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="span" data-redactor-class="redactor-invisible-space"></span></p>

3Dimensional Lips
<p>Seen at Mary Katrantzou, DKNY, and especially at Fendi, where<br>
pouts were covered in glitter, "bold statement lips are taken to the next level<br>
by creating new dimensions, from ombre effects to an overlay of glitter," says<br>
Martin. For a super easy look that doesn't look it, layer two different<br>
effects, such as a base layer of a satin-y lipstick with a dab of high-glitter<br>
gloss right in the center of your lips.&nbsp;</p>

4Straight, Boyish Brows
<p>
When it comes to your brows, it's out with the overdone.<br>
"Dramatic, squared-off instagram arches look dated and severe," says Park.<br>
"Naturally groomed, straight brows make you look younger and are on-trend for<br>
2017." Our advice: Give the tweezers, pencils, and powders a rest and reach for<br>
a tinted gel to hold freshly brushed brows and lightly fill them as well.&nbsp;</p><p><span class="redactor-invisible-space" data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="span" data-redactor-class="redactor-invisible-space"></span></p>

5Black Liner, Interrupted
<p>Taking a cue from 3.1 Phillip Lip, Rag &amp; Bone, and Chloe,<br>
Martin is keen on imperfect black liner for 2017. "Either degraded on the<br>
bottom lash line or lined only in the centers of the eyes, black liner takes on<br>
a new look being a bit unfinished," he says. Whether grungy or architectural,<br>
your only mission is to leave the hyper flawless look in 2016.&nbsp;</p><p><span class="redactor-invisible-space" data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="span" data-redactor-class="redactor-invisible-space"></span></p>

6Totally Monochromatic
<p>
If you've found your beauty arsenal chock full of multi-use<br>
makeup, you're in luck. "Pairing blush with the same lip tone and adding the<br>
same coloring in the eyes ties everything together," says Ta. These days,<br>
nearly every color of the rainbow is up for play, no matter where you apply it<br>
to your face, but, according to Martin, your color of choice should be….</p><p><span class="redactor-invisible-space" data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="span" data-redactor-class="redactor-invisible-space"></span></p>

7Pretty in Pink

"Think of this color as the 'new neutral,'" says Martin, who<br>
loved seeing the rosy shade at Dior, Pucci, and Isabel Marant. And the beauty<br>
of a neutral is you can pull it off on any part of your face. "Draped sheer and<br>
high on the cheeks, graphic yet soft on the eyelids, or as a healthy glow on<br>
the lips," says Martin. "Pink adds a fresh take to a bare face."</p><p><span class="redactor-invisible-space" data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="span" data-redactor-class="redactor-invisible-space"></span></p>

8Vinyl-Like Liner
<p>If you finally nailed your liquid eyeliner skills last year,<br>
you're in luck: liquid liner is still in, says Park, just look for a formula<br>
with a gleaming finish. "Shiny liquid liner gives it an extra edge for 2017,"<br>
she says. "Wing it out for a subtle or dramatic lift, the vinyl-like shine<br>
gives new meaning to liquid liner."&nbsp;</p><p><span class="redactor-invisible-space" data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="span" data-redactor-class="redactor-invisible-space"></span></p>

9Heavy Metal
<p>We have gloss and vinyl finishes lined up for next year and,<br>
according to both Park and Ta, we'll see even more glimmer still with metallic<br>
eye makeup.&nbsp;"I'll be bringing a lot of metals and chrome shadows into<br>
looks," says Ta. Explains Park:&nbsp;"Metallic lids give a similar pop effect as last year's glossy<br>
lids trend but with more functional wearability." Clearly, 2017 is your year to<br>
shine.&nbsp;</p>

<p>If you thought red tones have no place near you eyes, think<br>
again. Ta says he's developed a love affair with this deep ruddy shade, particularly<br>
to coat lashes. Tip: To keep the warm shade from making you look tired, opt for<br>
