2 Facial Rollers

The Trend: We're always on the look out for a skincare trend that's dermatologist-approved and more than a little Insta-worthy. Which is where derma face rollers come in. Get your hands on a pretty jade roller, whack it in the fridge (the cooling effect means puffy eyes are a thing of the past) and move it across clean skin to increase blood circulation and get that glow.

3 Cleansing Oils

The Trend: The essential step in any two-part double cleanse routine (which we assume you're all doing everyday, right?), cleansing oils are big news in the skincare biz. The easiest way to remove make-up without irritating your skin and whilst giving it a welcome hit of hydration at the same time, cleansing oils are a must, whatever your skin type. Yup, oily skin sufferers, they're good for you too.

7 Inclusive Foundation Shades

The Trend: We know it shouldn't be a trend to simply provide foundation shades for every woman's skin tone, but then again taxing tampons, the gender pay gap and Solange having her hair photoshopped off, shouldn't be either. Alas, it's the current world we live in. Thankfully, beauty brands like Rihanna's game-changing Fenty Beauty are finally meeting women's needs with more foundation shades than ever. About time too.

8 Geometric Nail Art

The Trend: Between sweater nails, geode tips and finger hair extensions, last year's nail trends got a little too weird for our liking. Look to 2018 for a more pared back approach to nail art and the return of more minimal geometric shapes.
