Beauty trends for 2021
Change up your beauty routine with dramatic eyes, bold lips, or a new hair do! Here’s everything you need to know about what’s happening in beauty this year.
The eyes have it
With masks the new normal we can expect that eyes will take on new importance - they’re the best place for a little creative self-expression. The classic black eyeliner will take a back seat to expressive shadows and brights. Vibrant colours, metallic cat eyes, and pops of unexpected colour. For those who like to experiment, try mismatched colours.
Dewy, glowing skin
Our pandemic skincare routines are paying dividends, it’s time to show off your glowing healthy skin.
Create an instant iridescence with a highlighter. High Glow gives the right amount of glow, not glitter. Apply with fingers and this buttery highlighter won't disturb your base. Or even better, apply directly onto skin for a natural lit-from-within glow.
Monochrome is staying put
A minimalist look is made super easy with monochrome make-up. Monochrome is the art of matching the shades you wear on your cheeks, lips, and eyes. And who doesn’t love a multitasking product that can do all three! A subtle but fresh look that will take no time. For a step by step guide on how to achieve it click here.
Bangs are back
More celebrities are proving that the bangs are back. Whether it’s a shaggy fringe, a micro fringe (think Anya Taylor-Joy from the Queen’s Gambit), or the curtain fringe which Selena Gomez is rocking which is low maintenance and flattering for almost any face. If you’ve been thinking of getting the chop this is the year to do it and an easy way to revamp your look.
Dynasty called, they want their eyeshadow back.
Expect to see an 80’s comeback. Remember Princess Diana’s electric blue eyeliner, or Cyndi Lauper blue signature eyeshadow? The looks can be easily modernised if you make a focal point of one feature and pull back on everything else.
Bring back the hair clips
Accessories, accessories, accessories. Expect to see more hair clips of every kind… it’s a perfect way to hide hair that hasn’t been trimmed or just pull your hair off your face in a casual and polished way. See you later top knot.
During times of economic trouble, sales of small items like lipstick skyrocket, because we all need a little pick me up. 2021 is no exception. A bold lip is the easiest way to make a statement and lift your mood. Whether it’s classic red, warm toffee or summer peach. You don’t need to tell us twice.
