鈥淚 like when something transports you to another time [and] another world,鈥 iconic fashion designer Anna Sui tells me, and standing in her SoHo boutique in Manhattan, I know exactly what she means. We鈥檙e surrounded by black lacquered furniture, purple hand-painted walls and racks of her designs. This Victorian retro-edgy, rock 鈥榥鈥 roll Western aesthetic is synonymous with Anna Sui鈥檚 brand, and it even bleeds over into her makeup line as well 鈥 and the queen herself signs off every product in the Japanese-made cosmetics line. Here are Anna鈥檚 top 2017 makeup trend predictions.

SEPIA-TONED EVERYTHING

For her Spring/Summer 2016 NYFW show, Anna decided to forgo the traditional color palette. 鈥淚 wanted them to look like an old photograph,鈥 she tells me. Ditch the corals and pinks next spring, and opt for 鈥渁 dark sepia burgundy鈥 for your lippie.

wine-red-lips

To achieve this look, you can try Anna Sui鈥檚 Vivid Lipstick ($30) in Wine Red. This hue will help you nail that burgundy/sepia trend 鈥 and it just so happens to be the shade that Anna won鈥檛 leave her house without!

blush

And to keep the look consistent, you won鈥檛 want a bright pink blush. Rather, go for a deeper rouge on your cheeks 鈥 like Anna鈥檚 gorgeously packaged Rose Cheek Color ($36) in Bright Red.

primer

To really channel an 鈥渙ld photograph,鈥 you鈥檒l want to make sure your skin looks picture perfect. Lay Pore Smoothing Primer ($25) under your foundation to help you nail the look and make your makeup last all day. Pro tip: You can even brush just a thin layer over the areas where your makeup starts to settle into your pores to help give yourself a quick airbrushing.

GLITTER

Your inner nine-year-old is going to love this one: According to Anna, glitter is back in a big, big way. 鈥淚鈥檓 a huge fan of glitter,鈥 Anna says. 鈥淪o I think glitter continues [to be huge]. Everyone鈥檚 wearing glitter on their face these days. If you鈥檙e going out for the night, that鈥檚 a great trend.鈥

eyeshadow

You can fall back into the glitter trend in a, ahem, grown-up way by wearing it on your lids! Anna Sui Satin Pearl Eye & Face Color ($12) comes in a variety of pretty, shimmery shades.

Glittery lips is another way to go. Anna鈥檚 limited edition Ring Rouge ($18) in Candy Pink does double duty as a chic statement ring AND a pot of lip gloss.

MORE CAT EYE EYELINER

While for a while, the naked eye was very much en vogue, it鈥檚 time to pick up that eyeliner pencil/pen/brush again. 鈥淓yeliner,鈥 Anna says, 鈥渢hat鈥檚 something every woman loves because it just makes you instantly more glamorous.鈥 More cat eye? 鈥淵es,鈥 she says with emphasis. 鈥淚 think so!鈥

eyeliner

When it comes to mastering the cat eye, the liquid liner is a favorite choice. Not only do you get the sharp, sleek lines, but the color is often more pigmented than pencil. Anna鈥檚 Liquid Liner ($27) comes in three fun shades: True Black, Anna Purple and Golden Brown.

gel

If gel liner is more your style, Anna鈥檚 Gel Eye Liner ($25) is a no-smudge, won鈥檛-budge option.
