We are in the early days of 2021, and yet it is clear how the beauty trends will pan out for the year.
Here are 5 to look out for:
At-home self-care continues to be important
As it will take awhile for the COVID-19 vaccines to be doled out, and enough people to take it, the responsible thing to do would be to stay home. So at-home pampering will continue to be on-trend: beautifying face masks, face massagers, home spa kits, etc.
Skincare will rule the day
As we have our protective face masks on, there is really no need for makeup on a daily basis. But skincare will continue to be important, as more realise that plastering on makeup does not solve their skin blemishes, complexion and tone.
Protective-mask proof makeup will be in-demand
Then for those who have to step out for work, they need makeup that will not be smudged and smeared by protective face masks. Long-lasting foundations, setting powders, smear-free lipsticks, blush that sticks on all day, even when rubbed.
High-Definition (HD) Make-up Raises the Game
As more meetings are done over video-conferencing, with high-definition cameras used, looking great infant of the camera is no longer a must just for news anchors and internet celebrities. More will start investing in blemish-blurring powders, and light reflecting creams for that luminescent on-camera complexion.
5. Eye-defining Make-up
The peepers are all that others can see above the protective face masks. So pile on the brow powders, eyeliner, shadow and lashes to grab attention and stand out in a sea of anonymous masked faces.
