With spring around the corner (thank freakin’ goodness), now is the perfect time to break down which spring/summer beauty trends are the ones to adopt this year!
I’ve rounded up my top 5 picks of wearable trends that you can easily implement into your everyday beauty routine.
Check them out:
*FRESH SKIN – (AKA the “Glass Skin” or “Dolphin Skin” trend) – With all of us having been in various states of lockdown for a little over a year now, the pandemic has really played a huge role in indicating what’s trending beauty-wise. We’ve all had more at-home time to focus on self-care and beauty from within. Moving into spring, moisture is key and it’s all about “Skinimalism”. Women are letting their natural skin shine and be the star of the show. Less heavy foundation, less caked up concealer and more dewy, fresh, glowing skin! Opt for something like our Fancy Face BB Cream to give you that effortless look! We also love applying the Supergoop Glowscreen for extra protection (SPF 40) and extra glow!
*COLOURFUL EYES (BLUE/PURPLE) are making a comeback: The pre-Covid runways were filled with washes of bold colour on the eyes. At Fancy Face, we’ve adopted this trend with bold liquid shadows like Stila’s Vivid Garnet and Vivid Sapphire Liquid Shadow to create winged liner looks. This feels a bit more wearable for everyday while introducing something new into our beauty routines. We recommend applying the cream shadows with our angled ‘Lip/Brow’ brush for the perfect sexy winged eye!
*STAINED LIPS are back: Say farewell to liquid lipsticks, ladies and gents. Stained lips are making a comeback and are truly having the moment they deserve. Since having to wear a mask in public, you want a lip that is going to have some stamina while also providing maximum hydration. The great news is that stains aren’t what they used to be – ie: dry formulas. They are now packed with hydration while giving the lips a sheer wash of colour. Some that I recommend are the Ilia Balmy Gloss Lip Oil and Merit’s Shade Slick Vegan Tinted Lip Oil.
*GRAPHIC LINES & DRAMATIC EYES: We all know that this past year, it’s been all about the eyes. When having to cover up half the face, the eyes really have to be the star of the show. Trend wise, this ideology has really taken precedence, and we’re seeing a lot of focus on being creative and playful with the eyes. Graphic bold black liner was seen all over the runways and believe it or not, white liner is making a comeback, too! A trend that is not so wearable is jewels and rhinestones around the eyes – and let’s be honest, ain’t nobody got time for that! I recommend playing with liquid white liner on the eyes with lots of mascara. If you’re up for the challenge, try out playing with some graphic shapes around the eyes too!
*90’s LINER: Bella Hadid has been seen recently rocking bold black eyeliner in the bottom lash line and it’s really been making a splash on the internet. This screams 90’s vibes, and lately, nostalgic makeup looks are making a comeback! I recommend switching out the black eyeliner for a more wearable and soft looking shade that still gives you that sexy pop outlining your eyes. Shades like Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Burnished Bronze are my fave. One tip: Be sure to choose a waterproof formula so it lasts all day long without smudging or needing touch-ups!
That is my round-up of the 5 wearable spring beauty trends you need to know about for 2021! Try out whichever trend speaks to you and feels the most wearable! Most importantly, have fun and don’t be afraid to try out something new! You may just surprise yourself!
Bye for now beauties!
