6 Trending Makeup Looks To Try in 2021

Are you in need of some beauty inspiration? We’ve compiled six trending makeup looks to try in 2021. Recreate stunning looks from fresh, glowing skin to bold eyes and custom lip colour. Here are the essentials that will breathe life into your makeup for 2021.

1. The Smokey Eye

The smokey eye is timeless, so it’s essential to own a neutral eyeshadow palette as a backup when you’ve run out of ideas. You can wear this look for the daytime by replacing deep colours with natural lighter shades. Pair smokey eyes with radiant skin and a nude lip for effortless sophistication.

2. Berry Nice

When it comes to makeup, berry colours are universally flattering and can have a transformative effect. Pinks and reds used on the eyes can add youthfulness, while a plum or burgundy lip adds grown-up sophistication. Rose gold layered over a burgundy matte eye is our go-to for a youthful and romantic look. Experiment with colours and finishes to get your desired effect.

3. Fresh Glowing Skin

Fresh, glowing skin is always in, and for 2021 it’s all about a diffused natural-looking glow. When the mood strikes, you can still intensify your look with a buildable coverage highlighter. Get your glow on from sunrise to sunset with these radiance-enhancing highlighters.

Don’t be intimidated, there are no rules—other than to create, have fun, and be your own mix-master. — Mario
