Hair trends to consider
We've been saying this for a while, though. Scrunchies, barrette clips, hair clamps and even '90s hair bobbles are back.

Scrunchies, @Shopstealinglucy, R60.
Velvet headbands and headwear
Keep your tresses out of your face and your head warm (and beautifully decorated) with some crushed velvet. Crushed velvet is winter's fabric of choice, and it really does make one feel fancy...

The bowl cut is life. Similar to the undercut, the bowl cut has no step, it just ends bluntly.
I'm loving the comeback of baby's breath, and think all brides, even Meghan Markle should wear their hair loosely curled, tousled even, and decorate it with this subtle but effective flower.
Makeup trends to try now
Showcased at Fenty's spring 2018 runway show notes Allure.com, mellow yellow for eyes is something to try. Rihanna says so, so then it has to be a vibe.
Keep things cheerful with a touch of bright yellow, mustard or even gold for party nights.

Flick that liner or go OTT graphic while leaving the rest of your makeup understated.
Silver, crystals and glitter
It doesn't have to be party season (aka end of year) to wear sparkles on your face. Add a touch of magic with some silver shadow, crystals or glitter.
Allure.com suggests using Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour cream as a base, adding glitter or crystals on top.
This '90s lip staple was just dying to return, and it has, with a vengeance. Now it's all about high shine and it's more reflective than ever.
This is my favourite lip gloss of all time, Lancôme L'Absolu Gloss Cream, R380. Red Square.
Or for a budget option, try the Revlon Ultra HD Lacquer, R179.
