2020 was a strange year for the beauty industry. Yes, DIY skincare and haircare trends became extremely popular, but what about makeup? With nowhere to go and no one to meet, most of us had our makeup products locked away in our drawers.
Who would have thought we would be able to confine ourselves to our homes and still entertain ourselves? And just like us, makeup products and trends have evolved too! The future of makeup looks bright because these trends are supposed to blow up in 2021.
Warning: Each makeup trend is better than the other!
With face masks covering the pout, we looked at eye makeup styles for self-expression. This year, eye makeup trends will be bolder and sharper. Instead of playing it safe with a classic pair of black wings, consumers will be playing around with bright neon and pastel colours. Sharp lines, negative space liner, inverted cat eye- you're gonna love it!
People who love wearing lipsticks have had a tough time last year. Especially with fiddly lipstick formulas, staining the face mask was inevitable. You won't experience this again if you choose a lip stain instead. Lip stains won't transfer to your mask easily and will give your pout a more natural look.
Dolphin skin was a 2020 trend, but it is believed to become a bigger trend in 2021. While it does sound like a skincare trend, you need makeup to achieve this look. To amp up your glow, begin by applying illuminating primer to moisturised skin. Then, apply 2-3 drops of highlighter drops to your foundation, mix well and apply it all over your skin. After doing your base, mix liquid highlighter and blush product, and apply it to the high points of your face. Finish the look by applying some shimmery facial spritz!
If you're a fan of bright makeup, then this is a trend you will surely love. Bright blue or neon lashes, what would you pick? Yes, the black mascara will always be a beauty staple, but a coloured one is a powerful equivalent to red lipstick.
Due to yellow being the Pantone colour of 2021, it's no surprise that we'll see a lot of it on our Instagram feeds. The kind of shade that's not warm or deep, but has a highlighter-yellow colour. If you wish to make a bold statement with their eyes, choose this shade of yellow. It's so bright that it will instantly make you stand out from the crowd.
Which of these makeup trends are you eager to try out in 2021? We're all ears!
