Spring 2021 Makeup Trends you’ve got to try

  1. Graphic liner 

This season’s runways showed graphic liner in all different shapes and sizes, from classic cat-eye, to bold, thick, and round. Rock this trend as the focal point of your look paired with simple mascara and dewy skin. Try a felt tip liquid liner pen for an easy winged liner, or a kohl pencil for a smokey effect.

2. Bold Lip

Bring in the brightness of spring with a bold lip color. Fuschia or orange adds a pop while keeping everything else simple. Bronzey skin, and natural brows pair perfectly with this spring trend. Liquid lipstick is a great option here, you don’t need liner and your lips will be beautiful for hours.

3. Minimalistic skin

With warmer weather upon us, wearing less foundation is a no brainer. Perfect your skin using a cream concealer under the eyes, on any blemishes or discoloration, and set the face with a powder, for a natural matte finish. Try a tinted moisturizer for a natural glow with sheer coverage. A hint of bronzer or blush gives dimension while still balancing the natural skin. This method of less is more compliments all our other spring trends.

4. Smoky eye 

The Smoky eye has evolved and now come first full circle to the original all black smoky eye. Don’t worry about messy black eye shadow for this trend, use an eyeliner pencil in black or dark gray to create smoldering eyes. Or buff a black gel liner all over the lid for an effortless worn-in look.

5. Colored mascara

Colored lashes can be a fun and easy way to add a pop of color and a statement to your makeup look. Purple mascara on the top lashes adds a hint of subtle color. Electric blue, or green on top and bottom creates a vividly powerful shape to the eyes.
