Unicorns and mermaids were great and all, but we're gearing up for next year's hottest beauty trends. As we count down the days until 2017 is officially over, we're sharing the biggest beauty trends (and products!) for 2018. From skincare to makeup, we're taking a peek at it all. Which trends are you already excited to try?
Highlighters in every shade.
From powders to liquids and even sticks, highlighters were a top beauty product of 2017. And it looks like 2018 isn't ready to say goodbye to the trend quite yet either. In fact, it's going to take it to the next level. In the new year, expect to see bigger, bolder, and brighter colors of highlighters. Brands like Fenty Beauty, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and MILK are already serving up popping pigments like purple, gold, and pink. Bring on the color.
Sheet masks for everything.
K-beauty sheet masks took 2017 by storm, but it looks like the treatment-based beauty practice is headed to other parts of the body. Briogeo drew inspiration from the technology and incorporated it into their brand new Don't Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Hair Cap System, which delivers a potent dose of the brand's popular conditioning mask for a quick nourishment session. But sheet masks are also headed to your body in the new year. Palmer's just dropped a Body Firming Sheet Mask to firm up and hydrate thighs, hips, stomach, upper arms—you name it.

Glitter, glitter, and more glitter.
Glitter has been closing out 2017, and we're betting it's going to roll right on into 2018 with even more. Wear it on your eyes, lips, or face, dare we say it—glitter is the new unicorn? You can already shop several different products that are ideal for mastering this look. There's stila's ethereal Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows, Kat Von D's extreme Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipsticks, GLAMGLOW's skincare take on the shiny trend, not to mention a whole new line of products from CoverFx come January 2018. Just think of what's to come!

Bigger shade variety.
We saw this with Fenty Beauty and their amazing 40-shade options of the Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, but a number of other major beauty brands are adopting (or already have!) a wide variety of shade options for foundations and concealers. Maybelline is expanding their shade selection of the fan-favorite Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Foundation, while L'Oréal Paris is dropping new shade options of the Perfect Match Foundation soon. Not to mention, bareminerals dropped a whole app to custom blend foundation based on your exact skin tone!
