I love starting the year out with an awesome style and beauty report. The idea is to kick off your year with stylish inspiration that will keep you looking great and trying new things all year. This report covers everything from style influencers to trending beauty topics that you will want to master. That’s right, this is your insider track to looking amazing every single day this year!

2018 is the time for every one of us to step out with sparkle. Remember to have fun with your look this year. Try something new, change up your products and sign up for a style subscription company to keep new things coming that you have never tried.  No more style or beauty ruts for you babe!

It’s time for you to hit the streets runway ready. Check out the top 10 picks in each category and weigh in on social media as well.

Trend-setting style influencers:
