At the start of quarantine, we were all ecstatic about the time off as it provided us with the opportunity to try new things - like learning how to use a stove for the first time - but as we approach September a.k.a the 7th month of staying indoors due to the worldwide pandemic, it’s safe to say that we’re more than ready to go back to our pre-corona routines. Unfortunately, the pandemic is still not under control and it seems like it’s going to be a while until we can actually get back to our mask free days. But no need to mope around, we’ve got something that will instantly boost your mood and no, we’re not talking about baking another banana bread. All you need is your makeup!
You’ll be surprised as to what a little colour from your beauty bag can do for your mood.
There are plenty of beauty trends out there that are playful and recreating them will instantly add a bit of positivity to your life as well as give you some bomb content for your social feed. We understand that this is not the permanent solution you were looking for, but it will help perk up your mood, even if it is just for a little while.
After all, you can’t control the pandemic, but you can, however, control the way you feel.
If you're tired of 2020, here are a few beauty trends that will make your day and put a smile on your face.
We know that white eyeliner is technically not a new thing *thanks to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s Music Video Rain On Me* but it is a fall 2020 makeup favourite. White is the new black and it’s not surprising to see why. The colour opens up your eyes, makes them look bigger and brighter-- not to mention, it makes your floating cat-eye look so much fiercer. So, keep your black eyeliner aside and brighten your mood by adding a white twist to your classic cat-eye.
If you’re looking for an off-white shade, then the LIT Matte Eyeliner Pencil in Mood is just what you need. This off-white liner is water-resistant and formulated with a vegetable wax extracted from berry kernels of the Japanese Cherry Blossom tree which help it glide on effortlessly.
For all the beauty mavens out there, here’s a fun and a bit challenging trend for you. Tie-dye is on the top of 2020’s best trends list. You’ve already seen plenty of tie-dye prints in the fashion world and it’s now finally making its way to the beauty section. When it comes to tie-dye eyeshadow, it’s all about integrating a mix of bright colours on your eyelids. This colourful and fun design is sure to boost your mood and turn up your cute quotient.
But this makeup trend isn’t reserved for only the pros and MUAs, even beginners can try perfecting this look. Just keep in mind that you, first, need to use a lighter concealer or white eyeshadow to create your base if you want the colours to pop. The second point to remember while trying to recreate this trend is to use a flat, densely packed eyeshadow brush to dab on the colours and always keep a Q-tip dipped in micellar water by your side to clean off any mistakes.
One of the popular Fall 2020 makeup trends is all about adding a bit of shine to your lips. Gloss is in and it’s the easiest way to add a little fun to your entire look. But instead of just swiping on the gloss, first, fill in your lips with a lip liner and then swipe on the gloss to get hydrated and glossy lips.
If you’re looking for the perfect gloss, look no further-- The K.Play Flavoured Lipgloss by MyGlamm comes in 12 yum flavourful shades that are subtly pigmented and give a high shine finish.
Why pick one when you can have two, right? The two-toned eyeshadow trend is said to be a Fall 2020 hit and we’re already in love with it. One hue on your eyelids and another hue on your lower lash line-- now this is a super fun and easy way to add a bit of colour to your life. Whether you go matte or opt for a bit of shimmer, this makeup trend is sure to brighten up your day and also grab people’s attention.
Need to upgrade your eyeshadow? Then, try the Manish Malhotra 9 in 1 Eyeshadow Palettes by MyGlamm. Every palette delivers powerful, statement colour in three luxurious finishes—foil, metallic and matte. These hues are easily blendable and free from parabens, oils, mineral oils, D5 and nano-ingredients.
Missing the beach? Why not bring it to you-- well at least to your nails. This new manicure trend provides an escape from reality which we’re sure, everyone is in need of right now. There are various ways to rock this nail art trend. You could either opt for the embossed nail technique to replicate the texture of the shell or take a much easier approach by adding reflective seashell pieces to your nude or peach-toned nail manicures.
This hella-cute and super easy manicure should be on your to-do list. From singer Dua Lipa to even eye-candy, Harry Styles, everyone is on-board the smiley face nail manicure. When it comes to recreating this trend, you can take the OG route by using only a yellow base and draw the faces over it or you can add your own personal touch and mix it up with other nail trends like the jelly manicure. Who would have thought that a smile on your nails could put a smile on your face?
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again- Purple has dethroned Pantone’s colour of the year, Classic Blue. Adding a bit of purple to your face—whether it’s on your eyes, lashes or lips can immediately add a glamourous, playful and regal touch to your entire look.
If it’s purple eye makeup you’re looking for, then try the LIT Matte Eyeliner Pencil in Wicked which is a beautiful aubergine purple shade. Lining your eyes with this hue will instantly bring out your playful, flirty side.
You can even take it up a notch with the Manish Malhotra Metallic Chalk Duo in Ignite. This innovative makeup product adds a shot of intense metallic colour to your look. Swipe these amazing eye chalks on your eyes, cheeks or even lips to add an intense wash of colour to your skin.
If you want to add this royal hue on your lips then opt for the K.Play Flavoured Lipgloss in Blueberry Rush which is a purple shade with blue undertones or go matte with the LIT Liquid Matte Lipstick in DTF which is a deep purple hue that lasts up to 12 hours with no smudges or transfers-- just pure, intense colour.
