#TrendAlert: Makeup Trends That Are About To Steal The Spotlight In 2021


The new year is just a few weeks away *cue gasps* and while we hope that we are free from this pandemic in 2021, the truth is that it’s not going to go away the moment the clock strikes 12 but that doesn’t mean we can’t think positive. Instead of focusing on the pandemic, we can take our minds of the virus by concentrating on the trending new-year topics in the field of beauty and makeup.

Yes, corona or no, the list for next year’s makeup trends is out and we are beyond excited. From bold eye makeup to stained lips and the comeback of a certain era, it’s safe to say that 2021 is going to be the year of experimenting. 

So, dust off your makeup bag and start perfecting these 6 makeup trends that are sure to be stealing the show in 2021. 

Bold, Fierce Eyeliner

Face masks aren’t going anywhere, even in 2021, so it’s time to let your eyes do all the talking. Instead of the simple eyeliner, smouldering wings are set to take over the 2021 makeup trend list. Even though there are many variations of this look, there's no denying that they all scream classy, sexy and poised. 

Coloured Mascara

This trend started dominating the runway right before the world went into complete lockdown and it seems like it’s going to get the attention it deserves in 2021. Coloured mascara not only adds a bit of playfulness to your look but also makes your eyes look brighter and more awake. 

And when it comes to this makeup trend, there are no colour restrictions. Shades of blue, purple and even neons are all acceptable --- nothing is off-limits. 

Stained Lips

This year, lipsticks took the back seat, and it might be the same at the start of 2021 as well. But that doesn’t mean you need to leave your lips bare. Instead of heavy creams and mattes, stains are going to reign over the makeup trend charts. In fact, they already have! Lip stains have become a go-to product when it comes to Zoom calls and Insta lives as they are easy and quick to apply and leave you looking fresh. 

Technicolor Lids

Eye makeup is all set to dominate 2021. For those who are all for edgy rather than simple, the technicolour lids trend is just for you. From taking the monochromatic route to using multiple hues --- your lids are your canvas. 

Fresh Skin

Your 2020 skincare ritual is going to pay off next year as fresh, clear skin is predicted to be a hit in 2021. During these past couple of months, people have embraced fresh, no-makeup skin and it will be the same next year as well. If you still haven’t begun a skincare routine, it’s not too late to start. 

2000s Comeback

Make way for the 2000s makeup trends in 2021. Be prepared for full, feathery brows and soft, chocolate brown lips, with matching lipliner. This makeup trend is going to be all about keeping it fresh and light. 

Start perfecting these looks, after all, 2021 is just a month away.
