Our Predictions for
2021's Makeup Trends
Find out which trending makeup looks we’ll all be wearing in 2021
While we all have high hopes that 2021 is going to be much better than last year, there’s one thing we know for sure is going to improve—and that’s makeup. We’ve rounded up the best makeup trends of 2021 so far, and they’re already looking brighter, bolder and more beautiful than anything we’ve seen before. If you’re using the new year as a chance to refresh your signature beauty looks, why not take inspiration from these three 2021 makeup trends?
2021 Makeup Trend 1: Enchanting eyes
Face masks are here to stay for the foreseeable future, which means making the most of your makeup from the eyes up. In 2021, being creative with your eyeshadow will be one of the main ways to express yourself, get a head start on one of 2021's biggest makeup trends by adding a highly pigmented eyeshadow palette to your makeup bag.
The Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette in Velvet Chrome is a perfect choice if you are wanting to get to work with the 2021 makeup trend of creating enchanting eye looks. Its highly blendable shadows have been made with revolutionary Knead technology for a vibrant colour payoff that lasts all day long. Featuring a combination of matte and shiny shades and infused with sweet almond oil and evening primrose oil, apply them with a damp brush for a striking look that will elevate any outfit, mask or no mask.
2021 Makeup Trend 2: Dewy skin is in
Being healthy has never been more important, and we’re seeing this reflected in 2021 makeup trends. A natural, fresh-looking face with a lit-from-within glow is what we’ll all be striving for this year, and the easiest way to achieve this look is with a lightweight foundation or BB cream. The trend is all about a face that’s somewhere between dewy and matte, so reach for the Day To Night Foundation. Its easy-to-blend formula contains Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E and an anti-wrinkle agent, which gives the skin a well-rested radiance that looks naturally flawless. If you want something even more skin-like, try the multi-award winning Radiate Beauty Balm. Created using Knead technology, it’s extremely easy to blend into the complexion for a smooth, second-skin finish. Pectin, argan seed oil and SPF 15 help to keep your skin healthy and nourished, too.
2021 Makeup Trend 3: Uplifting colours
The last of our 2021 makeup trends is the use of uplifting colours. An instant way to boost your mood is with a pop of colour, and that seems to be what makeup artists are doing in 2021. Bright, fun and in-your-face colours are going to dominate both eyes and the lips this year, so to replicate the look, start with the award-winning Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette in Jaipur Marbles. This highly pigmented palette features jewel-toned greens, pinks and golds, all of which are perfect for lifting your spirits and adding a touch of sparkle to your look. Because they’ve been created using Knead technology they’re easy to blend and last on the eye all day, so you can really get colourful. Finish up your colourful makeup look with a lipstick from the Matte Velour range. Vibrant, velvety and very long lasting, any of the eye-catching shades would complement a bold eye look and keep you up to date with 2021's biggest makeup trends.
