It’s safe to say that this year is unlike any other and we sincerely hope we never have to repeat it again. Due to the pandemic, our daily life of partying, travelling, meeting new people had to be kept on hold and we needed to embrace the new normal, i.e. being confined to the four walls within our home for more than 5 months with not much to do. During this harrowing time, the only thing that kept us and every other beauty enthusiast going was the resurgence of many makeup and skincare trends. Trying to perfect every beauty look not only helped us keep busy and master the makeup brush, but it also gave us tons of Insta content to work with.
