Popular Beauty Trends For 2017

Posted on: December 28th, 2016

As we are getting ready to ring in the new year, we have been on the hunt to find popular beauty trends for 2017! This past year some popular beauty trends included major contouring, the dark lippy, triangular french manicures and braided ponytails. Even though these trends shaped 2016, we are excited to see the beauty trends that will shape the New Year.

Popular Beauty Trends for 2017

  • The Baby Face– The contouring fad is almost on it’s way out according to the connoisseurs at Vogue.com. A lighter version of the heavy chiseled and bronzed contour look will be more of a “plumped cheek”. This look includes full lashes, pearly pink lips, and of course a rose colored blush or light dusting of copper on the cheeks. A Rosey highlight on the upper cheek bones will complete this fresh skin look.
  • Light Mauve Or Pink Shade Lips. These lighter shades are not only perfect for spring/summer, but these colors will stay popular and fresh all year round.
  • Soft, Uneven Curls. The classic beachy waves are definitely making a come back! In 2016 this look was definitely on the popular rise.
  • Say Hello To High-Gloss. Matte lipsticks and shadows are looking to make its way out. Even though these products are still popular, it is all about the high gloss lipsticks and shimmery shadows in 2017.
  • Pastel and Chrome Nails (oh my!) Solid pastel colors as well as chrome nails will be a beauty trend.
  • Cut-Crease Eye Makeup. If you haven’t seen this look, the best way to explain it is contouring for your eyelids.

Benefits of Being An Esthetician

Posted on: October 25th, 2016

Becoming an esthetician is fulfilling and every day is different. If you are the type of person who likes to help people, make a difference and have a flexible schedule, keep reading! From our Core Aesthetics program to our Advanced Aesthetics, we offer many trainings and programs to help launch your career after school. There are a wide range of benefits of becoming an esthetician, but it first starts with a program that will give you the knowledge and confidence to help your clients. Below are some benefits in launching your own career as an Esthetician.

Working with People. Having the opportunity to work with people up close and personal helps to build lasting relationships and trust.

Always Something New. Each client and every skin type are different so it makes the every day exciting!

Flexible Schedules. Since your work is done by appointment, you have the benefits of scheduling appointments when it fits.

Many employment options. From salons to doctor’s offices there are many places of employment after you graduate. Here at USTA we also prepare you for just that with our Business classes.

Helping clients achieve skin goals. There is nothing more satisfying than to help a client with a particular skin issue. The gratification of knowing you were able to help someone will also create a life time client. As a medical esthetician, you have the privilege of helping dermatologists and doctors create overall plans to help clients regain confidence in their looks.

Our Aesthetics training is starting this November! In this class you will explore the current science of skin therapy while developing your hands-on skills right from the start, progressing to advanced therapies and the world of medical spas. We are proud to say that USTA has graduated over 1000 aesthetic students with an average placement rate of 86%.

With merlot and metallic color palettes complimented with peach tones, these trends were relevant during fashion week and are available in stores now.

  1. The Vampy Lip. The dark lips in colors like wine, dark purple and dark browns are in this fall season. Try it in both a matte and gloss.
  2. Glitter Effect. Glitter eyeliner and shadows are in for fall. With a simple line on your upper lid or lower lash line, create a sparkly look in seconds. For eyeshadow, try using a taupe color on the lid with a glitter gold overlay.
  3. Metallic Nails. Eggplant purple and gun metal gray are trending nail colors this fall season. Try Oribe The Lacquer in ‘The Violet’.
  4.  Smokey Eyes. Create a smokey eye using copper colors instead of the traditional black. Keep the lips in a neutral nude color to make the eyes pop.
  5. Just Peachy. A baked blush in a peachy pink sets the tone in this fall makeup trend. Use on the cheek and blend away. The peach colors are actually trending as a lip gloss as well.
  6. Dewy Skin. Add a highlighter to the high point of your cheek bones, along the brow bone, down the center of your nose and on your chin to create a highlighted, dewy look.
  7. Ruby Red Lips. Dorothy would be proud as the ruby red, sparkly lips are trending this fall. Keep the rest of the makeup neutral to create that pop of color.
