If you ever want to get ahead of the beauty trends, all you have to do is look at the runway. With collections being shown seasons in advance, it gives us our first taste of what makeup artists think are going to be the next ‘it’ trends. We’re turning to Paris, Milan, London, and New York for our beauty inspiration for autumn and winter 2021. With the holiday season right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to experiment with the latest beauty trends.
At Paris Fashion Week, makeup artists and hair stylists took their inspiration from muted pastel shades to encapsulate the idea of escapism. Whether it was a sequinned lip or coral hair, Fashion Week has showed us that the beauty world is still enjoying a quirky moment.
One themed you’ll see in most of these beauty trends is that nostalgia is everywhere you look. Milan Fashion Week made us feel like we were stepping back into the ;90s, from sleek straight hair to bandanas and face gems. It’s not just the ‘90s that are being remembered. The ‘60s and ‘70s are still holding their grip on the beauty industry, no doubt thanks to TikTok’s love of vintage fashion and style inspiration.
Read on to find out more about the biggest beauty trends of the season that we're all over the catwalk at fashion week.
It’s time to bring your backcombing brush out of storage. One of our favourite hair looks from fashion week was Collina Strada bringing back-combing back to life, along with bright mullets and rattails. If you’re a fan of ‘80s and ‘90s fashion, then it’s time to embrace your love for the era.
Another hair trend that was all over the runway was stacked hair accessories. Gone are the days of wearing just one statement hair clip. While some aspects of fashion are going all minimalistic, it’s time to say hello to maximalism.
Everyone from Simone Rocha to Tom Ford and Alice & Olivia had their models wearing stacked hair clips and accessories. Stacked accessories are perfect to style with a messy undone bun for a textured look.
After a year of minimalistic and understated eyeshadow trends, smoky eyes are back again. It’s not your classic dark smokey eye with hues of brown and taupe. With this trend, the bolder the colour palette, the better.
It’s all about adding flashes of colour to your look, whether it’s a pastel pink or your favourite aqua blue hue. For this trend, keep the rest of your makeup natural for a flawless finish and to let your eyes pop. This beauty trend is a must-try for the holiday season.
Change the hair. Change the woman. It’s a moto that we live by. If you feel like you want to make a drastic change to your hair, it’s time to experiment with the biggest hair trend of the season. Autumn/winter 2021 is all about the bob haircut, which is going to carry through to Spring 2022. At Loewe, we saw pastel bowl-cut hair, while Chanel opted for the classic French-girl chic bob.
Another accessory about to make a return to the beauty scene is headscarves – imagine what you would wear to a music festival in the early ‘80s. The brighter and bolder the scarf, the better. You can match your bright vintage headscarf to your makeup or let your accessory do the talking.
This beauty trend takes its inspiration right from Euphoria with holographic pastel detailing. We spotted this trend everywhere from Tom Ford to Anna Sui and KNWLS. Think wet looks with natural shades, complete with a shiny metallic finish. It’s futuristic chic with an understated elegance.
Are you not a fan of pastels? Glam grunge is a edgier look that is both glamorous and contemporary. The focal point of this look is a deep stain-glass lip with fresh skin and minimalistic eye makeup. You can take your inspiration for this beauty trend from the feminine grunge movement of the 1990s. You’ll want to fill your makeup bag with deep purple and wine-toned lipsticks. You can rock this beauty trend all year round for a glamorous rock chic look.

Every time we click on TikTok or Instagram, there seems to be a new makeup trend that everyone is talking about. After a year in quarantine, we’re all ready to brush away the cobwebs and rediscover the content of our makeup bags. Staying on top – and predicting – the beauty trends for 2021 is a difficult task. We’ve all seen how quickly trends can be born and die under the influence of social media.
Whether you spend hours scrolling through your TikTok app or have never opened the platform, this article is for you. It gives you an insight into the trends that are dominating the platform and that you can expect to see more people rocking in real life. Another knock-on effect of TikTok trends is that it impacts which products beauty brands choose to release. If a beauty brand spots a trend about to go viral on TikTok, they’ll rush to get ahead of it.
The beauty of social media is that beauty trends can come out of nowhere, changing and adapting to our needs. This idea was never truer than when the pandemic hit, and beauty trends shifted from a full-face of makeup or a skincare-focused routine.
