From subtle to extravagant, glossy to shiny: With the new year, new make-up trends will hit your skin. In our trend preview below, we will show you which looks will be particularly important in 2021.
Glossy lips like Salvatore Ferragamo's Spring/Summer 2021 make-up trend pays homage to the beauty look of the 90s, which is now returning.
The biggest trends in beauty and fashion that caused a sensation in the 90s have been back for some time. This continues with the make-up trends 2021, which live the nostalgia of the 90s as a tendency. From dark-rimmed lips like at Acne Studios to dramatically made up with kohl eyes like Christian Dior and glossy, glossy lips, the decade offers a variety of varied beauty looks.
In times when the face mask has become a constant companion in our new life, the eyes are increasingly becoming the focus of make-up trends. An extravagant look that brings more color and a good mood at the same time is eye make-up in bright nuances. At Blumarine, for example, pink eye shadow complements the make-up for spring/summer 2021, which looks like it has been painted on with watercolors. With Salvatore Ferragamo, the color is meanwhile used as a bright red eyeliner, which combined with a classic "flick" at the end gives the beauty look a fresh update.
But the natural beauty look also remains in trend. Labels such as Boss, Etro, and Versace are using the Dewy Matte look for their make-up for spring/summer 2021 - i.e. intensely cared for, plump skin that shines slightly. The make-up can be discreet here, only a poorly covering foundation is used to conceal small skin impurities, pimples, and the like. Special dewy sticks ensure the characteristic finish, which can also be achieved with special face sprays.
Tip: The mask is a challenge for the skin and quickly leads to the unpleasant "maskne" - read here how you can effectively prevent skin problems by wearing a mask.
Despite the mask, a conspicuous lipstick remains an important make-up trend for 2021 - if necessary only in a video call or at the virtual dinner party at home. Bright, highly pigmented lipsticks are particularly popular, such as the Shocking Pink at Versace or the intense carmine red at Hermès. In terms of texture, everything is possible on the lips this year, from matt to subtly shimmering to a glossy, glossy finish with a vinyl look.
In addition to the above bright colors for the eyes, intense black dominates the make-up trends, above all the smokey eye, which is celebrating its comeback thanks to labels such as Christian Dior and Giambattista Valli. Dark eyeliner will also be used in 2021 to create a creative canvas from the eye, for example in a graphic arrangement and with metallic accents like Valentino's.
