Makeup trends, the are ever changing.
For the past five years we have seen HD brows, Smokey eyes and bold falsies! And it looked killer!
After a year of Zoom calls and lack of social events, however, the way people are wearing their makeup has changed. It looks as though minimal makeup is going to be the trend of 2021.
We are loving this minimal make-up theme, it is always a good idea to let your natural beauty shine through! Makeup trends of 2021 are all about enhancing your natural beauty, soft colours and neutral tones.
Stay on trend with your makeup by getting on board with some of the newest makeup trends of 2021.
Dewy skin has been one of the first makeup trends to take 2021 by storm. As we mentioned the theme of 2021 is all things natural. Showing off a nice dewy skin is very in right now. The idea behind a dewy skin makeup look is it is a half way point between natural skin and makeup. Perfect for those zoom calls and days at home!
The key to the ultimate dewy skin look is mixing your makeup with your skincare.

A great new brow look has landed in 2021. Say hello to soap brows! Soap brows have been increasing in popularity for the past few years but have become very trendy in 2021. Soap is used to hold your brows in shape, all while giving you statement brows.
To create the look all you will is:
- A Spoolie
- A bar of soap, containing glycerin.
- Alternatively, you can get a product created specifically for soap brows such as West Barn co’s soap brows.

Minimal foundation is the look of 2021. In keeping with the natural look, using less dark and heavy foundation is recommended. Opt for a foundation no more than 1 to 2 shades darker than your natural skin tone.
CC creams are a great way of achieving this minimal foundation look. CC creams offer a similar type of coverage to foundation, but they are lighter weight and less pigmented. This is not only kinder to your skin but ideal for summer makeup.
It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream is perfect for achieving this minimal foundation look.
Blush is back! I mean how cute are rosy cheeks? The perfect compliment to a natural makeup look is a little bit of blush. Place a little bit of blush on your cheeks to finish off your natural makeup look.
Nude nails are very in right now. People are opting for neutral colours for their nails. Shades such as beige, stone, and cream are being seen a lot at the minute. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun by adding in a design. People are adding a twist to their nude nails by adding swirls of white and pastels so nude doesn’t have to be boring!
Not forever, but for now. Eyeliner is being worn less in 2021 by the looks of it. Top eyeliner is still around, don’t panic! When it comes to lower liner however, people are giving that step a miss. If you really don’t want to part ways but want to stay on trend, try using a neutral colour eyeliner such as a brown eyeliner. Brown eyeliners add great definition to your eyes.
Pop Of Colour Eyeshadow
While the natural look is very much in right now. In contrast to this and to keep things interesting, coloured eyeshadow is being used more and more often at the minute. Particularly pastels. There doesn’t seem to be any particular eyeshadow trend such as smokey eyeshadow that was popular in 2016. People are getting creative with how they incorporate colour in to their eye make up.
Get your hands on some of these pastel eyeshadows, such as the Sleek CTRL ALT CREATE pastel bundle and have a bit of fun when doing your eye make up!
