While wearing face masks is still very much the norm for Spring 2021, we can still stay safe while remaining stylish. We find out the top makeup trends you’re about to see everywhere.
Stevie Cocking, The Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Workplace Trainer/Assessor, Queensland Branch:
The biggest makeup trend for Spring 2021 is all about the eyes. Since face masks have become such a bit part of our lives, why not make the eyes pop this Spring? Eyeshadow looks will only get brighter and more extravagant as the temperature rises. What better way to lean into the season’s vibrant colours than by focusing your makeup looks on the top half of your face? A nice orange eyeshadow is bright and flattering on so many skin tones. Then tap a tiny bit of shimmery pigment on your inner corners to brighten up the look even further. Pair it with a lash lift, which is an accessible way to have your lashes feeling long and beautiful with minimum effort. It’s all about the eyes this Spring!
Marie Lattouf, Clinique, Myer City, Sydney:
The makeup trends for Spring 2021 is going to be all about the eyes. With most people wearing masks while out and about, we are seeing a strong focus on eyes when it comes to makeup. It’s time to get excited about using colour again with your face as your canvas. For 2021, vibrant colours and nostalgia are two major themes. Bold eyeshadow colours are big in 2021 – think every colour of the rainbow. This year, sharp liner is going strong, whether it’s classic cat eye or a 60’s inspired negative space or graphic liner. If you want to ease into the trend, stick with a classic cat eye, but swap black for a bold colour. Complement this trend with statement lips and geo lift brow that is full and fluffy.
