4. Multimask
We’ve all used various masks on our face to solve skincare problems. However, have you ever applied multiple masks on different parts of your face at the same time? No? Then it’s time to do it now because multi-masking is going to be the new cool trend this year. If you have multiple skin problems, for example an oily T-zone and dry cheeks, you can try a clay mask on the oily areas of your face and a hydrating mask on the other parts.




5. Pineappling

However, it’s also a great way of waking up with defined curls in the morning if you tie them up in the night post a shower to avoid frizz.



6. Spotlighting
Take a break from highlighting because spotlighting has taken the spotlight this year. Yes, it’s a makeup technique wherein you need to ditch your shimmers and powders for a highlighting balm to make your skin glow naturally.




7. Squareletto
What’s new in the nail trend, you ask? Stiletto nails seem to be a thing of the past. It’s time to embrace Squareletto nails this year. Sqaureletto shaped nails are very long but squared off at the tip so they are less sharp.



8. Garage Doors
