This Summers 2021 'Make up' is all about being Subtly Extra
It's time to take your go-to look to the next level — slightly
After what feels like an eternity of quarantine skincare, and minimal zoom-meeting makeup, this summer promises a much-needed return to bold, fun makeup.
There’s nothing like warmer weather to make you want to go out and look your best, and these 8 makeup trends are on standby to give you the ultimate summer glam.
“I’m trying to be optimistic and hopeful that by the summer, mask mandates may be lifted and we may not be required to wear one at all times. If this is the case, it’s going to be a serious summer of statement lips,” Sir John (L'Oreal Paris US Makeup Artists) tells ELLE during their interview with them.
We second that optimistic nature Sir John so lets refresh our readers of these epic trend looks shall we?!
Trend #1: Full Proof Fresh Skin
"Rocking your real and true skin will be where it’s at and stil is for 2021 upcoming Summer trends, that means having a stellar skincare routine. "I love love love my ageLOC LumiSpa Beauty Device Face Cleansing Kit – Normal to Combination Skin Spa triple cleanse for creating a super-clear base—Refresh your skin with a face mist and add a hydrating face oil on top, pressing it softly into your skin to help stimulate blood flow and absorption. Do this one to two times per week for the best skin you’ll ever have in your life. No makeup required!"
The no-makeup-makeup look isn't going anywhere, if anything it’s getting an update. Be prepared to see lots of minimal makeup that highlights natural skin this summer. “It’s all about lightweight base makeup and next to nothing skin, which is always great for warm weather and mask-wearing,” says Sir John.
With looks like these I enjoy playing with my Tinted Moisturizers. Currently my favorite would have to be Nuskin Nu Color Advance Tinted Moisturizer or if daily begs too much work try the Sunright Insta Glow Tinted Self-Tanning Gel or alternatively Clarins HydraQ uench Tinted Moisturizer SPF15 03 Peach
Trend #2: Smoldering Eyeliner
With all of the mask wearing in our future, Elle predicts smoldering eye looks will reign supreme among the 2021 makeup trend set.
Some of my favorite brands out there is soft pencil tip of Essence long lasting Eye Pencil as well s their colorful range Kajal Pencil Feel the Eclipse, Essence while the Smudge Felt tip Liner created the perfect precision for that powerful winged liner.
Trend #3: Colored Mascara
The sky is the limit where formula and color are concerned, and if you're building up your sea legs, I recommend using one coat of colored mascara first, followed by a stroke of black or brown—a layering technique that will give you a slightly more subdued take on the trend.
I am totally in love with the rich hues of cobalt blue and deep-sea green not to mention that irresistible purple from L’Oréal.
Trend #4: Lashes to the Roof
Are you noticing a theme here? Undoubtedly, 2021 will be the year for everything eyes and lashes, the longer and more lifted, the better where your flutter is concerned.
Lash lifts (versus extensions) as an up-and-coming trend surge as far as splurge-worthy treatments go. This is a super-easy and accessible way to have a major beauty look with minimum effort. Look for technicians in your neighborhood and make sure that you read their customer reviews!
Maybeline: the falsies lash lift I will recommend any day some additional drama.
Trend #5: Stained Lip Color
There has been a definitive shift in focus from our pouts, but that doesn't mean we'll have no need for a megawatt lip moment for the remaining year. (We're still predicting lots and lots of Zoom calls, Instagram Lives, and more.)
Choose something that's bold and has stamina.
Long-wear lipstick never had a more relevant place in our beauty bags!Apply a couple of coats of your favorite stain and blot in between each application—this will stain your lips and allow you to wear a bold color without it getting smeared all over your face if you end up putting a mask on.
Trend #6: Full Looking Brows
Don’t forget about your brows while approaching the end of 2021! Full-looking eyebrows help to frame your face and give your beauty look extra oomph. Get in on the trend by using the L’Oréal Paris Unbelievabrow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel to thicken the appearance of your brows. Start by lightly applying the product to fill in sparse areas. Use the angled brush to outline and define your brow shape and arches with feather-like strokes. Finish up by combing through your eyebrows with a spoolie
Trend #7: Technicolor Lids
You don't have to invite me twice...
Embrace bold color by sporting an orange eye makeup look. Orange makeup hues are a chic way to add some color to your beauty look while stepping outside-of-the-box. Experiment with your eye shadow or eyeliner to get in on the trend.
It’s time to get creative with the eyes and use all the colors of the rainbow to create something bold and unique on your eyelids.
Playing with color can be daring fearful and scary especially if not correctly applied. Please follow my YouTube channel for a HOW TO application tutorial or if you want something a tad more subtle, you can reach for a colored liner instead. "I love this trend because the sky is the limit, and you’re free to be as expressive as you want to be!".
BE BOLD, BE DIFFERENT, BE DARING...
