Ready for fresh, new make-up must-haves? We show you the 4 most beautiful make-up trends for 2021 that you absolutely have to try.
Admittedly, 2020 wasn’t exactly the year for special occasions and glamorous make-up looks. It is therefore not surprising that the make-up trends in 2021 are particularly simple and natural. The motto is restraint. In the new year we only put very specific parts of the face in the limelight.
We’ll tell you how it works best and which four trends you shouldn’t miss.
Elegant: copper tones are popular
Mouth and nose protection will be an integral part of our everyday life in the New Year too. Therefore, special focus is on our eyes. You can emphasize them in the new year with eye shadows in warm copper and brown tones. The delicate nuances suit every skin and hair type and make our eyes shine discreetly and stylishly.
Tip: Use the lightest shade of your eyeshadow palette as a primer and apply it to the entire eyelid. This will prevent the darker eyeshadows from settling in the crease. Then apply the copper-colored eyeshadow to the movable eyelid and gently blend it upwards towards the eyebrows so that there are no hard edges.
Incidentally, the look is particularly beautiful with discreetly emphasized eyebrows.
Fresh and feminine: lipstick in soft red is in
We copied this make-up trend from the French: Parisian trendsetters and fashion bloggers have long been relying on lipstick in soft red tones. In contrast to the classic eye-catching lipstick in strong, rich red, this trend is a bit simpler and is therefore also perfect for the office or for the next video meeting. The delicate shade of red on the lips makes us look instantly dressed and fresher, even without any makeup.
Like so many fashion and beauty trends among French women, this one is characterized above all by its uncomplicated styling. A little BB Cream and mascara are enough for the look, after all, the focus should be on the lips. Thanks to the delicate color, they don’t have to be painted accurately. Simply apply the lipstick gently to the middle of the upper and lower lip and then spread the color with your finger. This keeps the color nice and soft and the look particularly casual.
All natural: no make-up looks
Less is more: No-make-up looks were already popular in 2020 and will remain with us in 2021. The most important thing in a natural look is a good face cream that provides our skin with plenty of moisture and ensures a fresh, rosy complexion. Only small bumps in the skin tone are concealed with BB Cream or a little concealer. If you like, you can also add a little highlighter to the cheekbones, bridge of the nose and above the Cupid’s arch of the lips for a little glow.
The eye area is left out, only the eyebrows are subtly emphasized: fill the gaps with a brow pencil and finally brush the hairs upwards a little. This ensures a more alert look – even without mascara!
Evergreen: black eyeliner
Instead of experimenting with bright colors, we prefer to rely on old classics in 2021. Black eyeliner just never goes out of style. In the New Year, the eyeliner is worn either alone or in combination with dark eyeshadow as smokey eyes.
This is how the eyeliner always works: First, prime the eyelid with a light eyeshadow or transparent powder. Place the eyeliner in the middle of the lash line and gently pull the line to the outer corner of the eye. If you want a dramatic look, you can simply pull the line a little further outwards. Now, from the inner corner of the eye, gently draw a line and connect it to the first.
Tip: Gently lift the lid with your finger when applying. So you can work precisely and as close as possible to the eye.
