After a long, bleak winter, we couldn’t be more excited to feel summer on the horizon. And with the promise of brighter days ahead, our minds are beginning to turn to new makeup trends. So, now that you can actually get out and be seen, what should you be splashing out on for summer 2021?
This coming season is definitely no time for shrinking violets. If the catwalks are anything to go by, summer 2021 will be all about flashing some serious colour. According to the experts, bright, juicy shades of greens, oranges, yellows and blues will be seriously on-trend, applied as a bold block to dazzle from morning to night.
Just like the eyes, lips this coming season are all about unapologetic, dramatic colour. This is no time for nude tones and subtle shades – make a statement in bright berry reds, sophisticated scarlets and sultry purples.
Having spent an entire year without vacations, that healthy, post-holiday glow feels like a distant dream. So it’s no wonder that the sun-kissed look is set for a big revival in summer 2021. But there’s good news for those who prefer the shade – this season’s hot look can be achieved with a clever combination of blusher, highlighter and the right foundation.
With nights out finally (hopefully) back on the cards, a glittering evening look is likely to be a vital component of this coming season. Enter metallics. Whether it’s a shimmering silver eyeshadow or a bold gold lip, this trend has emerged from the catwalk and looks set to take the beauty world by storm.
While we are all hoping for a little more freedom this year, it’s likely that face masks will remain a part of our lives well into the summer. And that means the continuation of the graphic lines trend – creating bold, almost cartoonish looks on the upper face to compensate for the lack of visible lips and cheeks. This coming season, we predict that a toned down version will remain in fashion: think cat liner and 60s-inspired eyes.
