A lot has changed in 2020 — including beauty trends — and if you've been buried in work or chasing your kids around the house while in quarantine, you might not have heard about some of them.
But, it's not too late to get up on the latest beauty trends this winter season and get some pointers from your favorite celebs. Take a look at our seven beauty trends you need to know about right now so you can step into 2021 looking your absolute best.
7 Top Beauty Trends You Need to Know About
1. Smoky Blue Eye Shadow
It's official. Blue eye shadow is back in play, but not that baby blue powder eye shadow that ruled the early 2000s. Instead, people are using darker hues of blue to create the perfect smoky eye (because, if you're like a lot of women, it's probably time to shake up your smoky eye look).
2. Lash Boosting Routines
Lashes are everything right now and people are focusing more and more on boosting their lashes. Join the movement and invest in the health of your lashes today with Rodan and Fields' lash boosting serum. Your eyelashes won't look the same after just a week of using it. If you want fuller, longer, darker-looking lashes, an eyelash growth serum can help you get there so you can flaunt them wherever you go in 2021.
An eyelash extension is also worth considering. Having trouble deciding between the two most popular lash types? Look into real mink vs faux mink lashes to find out which suits you better.
3. Bright Eyeliner
Gone are the days when black was the only acceptable eyeliner color. Women are sporting much brighter eyeliner these days in all kinds of brilliant colors, including orange, white, and even yellow. Using these colors (or one of your choosing) can draw attention to your gorgeous eyes, giving them an instant pop against the rest of your ensemble. So experiment, have fun. And don't let the haters bring you down.
4. Dark Lipstick
Dark lipstick is making a big comeback after a long stint in the 90s. All of your favorite stars are likely sporting a shade that complements their skin tone and you should do the same. Thinking of going burgundy for your next look? We're all here for it so go ahead and stock up on a few dark-hued lipsticks and start experimenting.
5. Bushy Brows
Remember when your eyebrows had to look super-thin and look like they were drawn on? Thank goodness those days are behind us. In the last few years, it's been all about the bushy brow and celebs have been sporting this fashion trend for a while now. There are all kinds of ways to do bushy brows, including Chalamet brow, the shadow effect, the soap brow, the windswept brow, the toned-down brow, and the dewy brow.
6. Floating Eyeliner
Another eyeliner trend people are heavily into right now is floating eyeliner. Just look at celebs like Meg Thee Stallion who used abstract lines above her eyelid creases to put a twist on a classic look. Decide whether you want to mix it up with the colors or opt for a more muted color and go for it girl.
7. All-Over Highlighter
Another trend popular among celebs like Yara Shahidi (Black-ish and Grownish) is the all-over highlighter. This look can be accomplished by blending the glow inducer into the high points of your face, such as your brow bones, cheekbones, and Cupid's bow. It'll give you the ultimate glow so go ahead and get yourself some to take into the new year.
