The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced most people to put on hold any social activities and gatherings. However, with the hope of the vaccine and dropping numbers of confirmed cases, the world is starting to come to life again. If you are like most individuals, you may have put your beauty regimen on hold because of the crisis. Here are four beauty trends to try out before you re-enter the world this year.
While long hair and beachy waves are still a trendy look for hair, curtain bangs are also making a big comeback. Now being sported by trendsetters such as Gigi Hadid and Ariana Grande, this look is showing up on runways everywhere.
The curtain bang look generally relies on a center part with longer bangs hanging down the sides of the face offering a perfect frame. This can be a good compromise if you are considering bangs but do not want to take a chance on such a drastic change. Curtain bangs are also easier to maintain than traditional bangs. In addition, because of their longer length, you can also still pull them back if you want all of your hair out of your face. If you are not sure about going full-on curtain bangs, consider using longer layers to frame your face instead.
Nano Machine Strokes as an Alternative to Microblading
Microblading is one of the hottest beauty trends of the last few years. By adding permanent pigment to the skin, you will achieve perfect brows that will last for weeks. An alternative to the traditional microblading service is the nanomachine strokes process.
A microblading eyebrows machine is able to insert more pigment with each stroke, increasing the longevity of the brows. As a bonus, this type of brow service also is less traumatic to the skin while providing an easier healing process. This type of service can last up to three years with occasional touchup applications if you begin to experience fading.
As an extension of the minimalist makeup trend, monochromatic looks are also on the rise in 2021. This trend leans on a single shade of color used throughout all of your makeup products. Using one primary shade will keep your look natural while still providing a subtle burst of color.
In order to achieve this look with ease, consider the use of multi-use products. For example, a blush that doubles as an eyeshadow will bring your whole face together. Or try a blush that you can use as a lip color. Highlighters can also be used as eyeshadow to tie your look together.
Colored Mascara and Eyeliner
After a year in isolation, now is the time to go bold with color. Colored mascara or eyeliner are great products to try if you want to add a little color to your beauty routine without overdoing it. If you are shy about using a bold lip or eyeshadow color, injecting this freshness with mascara or liner may be a good choice for you.
If you are worried about it being too much, try using the colored mascara just on the lower lasher rather than the whole eye. As a bonus, colored mascara and eyeliner also will make your face stand out from the crowd on all of those dreaded Zoom meetings.
It is understandable if you want to break out of your normal beauty routine and try something different as you re-enter society. These four ideas are a great starting point for ideas that you can implement today. Make the most out of the world opening back up again by looking your best and trying out a new look.
