Things are starting to look extremely autumnal. As summer comes to an end, we’re more than ready to welcome fall back into our lives. As the world starts to reopen after the pandemic, fall promises to bring with it excitement and new opportunities for us to make up for lost time. It’s also an exciting time for the beauty industry. Will the laidback minimalistic aesthetics that we saw during lockdown remain as the world continues to reopen? Will so-called ‘soft glam’ rise up in its place as a more elevated alternative for wearing outside the house.
What can we expect from beauty trends as we finally start to ditch the face masks and experience life to the fullest for the first time in over 18 months? Looking at trends for fall 2021, it’s all about a pop of colour, whether it’s with soft pastels or bright bold hues. What we love about this idea is that you can incorporate a pop of colour into any look, whether you’re going ultra-glam or more minimalistic.
As part of this, we’re also starting to see people experimenting with and wearing colour in new and exciting ways. Did we ever think we would be talking about blush placement on TikTok? Well, we definitely didn’t think so. On the other hand, classic makeup looks like a bold lip and smoky eye may make their way back into makeup trends as we rediscover our makeup bags and the full contents of our vanity.
If you’re not sure what to do with your makeup for fall 2021. Keep it classic. You can never go wrong with lashes and liquid lips – but make sure to give them a 2021 twist.
We’re rounding up the most exciting trends that we are expecting to see everywhere during fall 2021. It’s time to grab your makeup and teach yourself that techniques that you’ll have forgotten over the last 18 months. Come on, it’s time to rejoin society again.
It’s worth remember that most of us have spent over a year of hardly wearing any makeup, gradually easing back into the contents of our makeup bag during the summer. However, that’s a season when most of us adopt a skinimalistic approach and keep everything simple with multi-functional products.
As part of the fall 2021 trends, we can expect the concept of skinimalism to play a big role in every trend. Look out for lightweight products with a breathable formula that help your skin achieve a healthy, dewy glow without weighing down your skin. It’s all about finding a concealer and foundation that offers you buildable coverage.
Although fall 2021 makeup trends will largely be understated, there will be an element of glamour to them. With face masks being reduced, you can expect a return to the days of glossy lips. Other ‘glamorous’ trends like brow care are here to stay, along with the focus on healthy and radiant skin. You can expect skincare products to remain almost some of the most popular beauty products for fall 2021.
Some of the trends that you’ll find on this list are ones that we’ve come to know and love during fall. Picture soap brows, ultra-bold lips, and eyeshadow with an electric hue. As we start to rediscover the world again and the seasons change, you can expect makeup to become brighter and more joyful.
Whatever trends you decide to experiment with, make sure they’re ones that reflect your personality and help you create a makeup routine that doubles as a self-care ritual.
Read on to find out about the 7 fall 2021 makeup trends that we’re most excited for this season.
The focus on eyes that we saw during spring and summer aren’t going anywhere, in fact, it’s going to get even bolder. Kristen Stewart’s go-to makeup artist has said that fall 2021 will be the time for heavy lined eyes. She explains that it’s because of the longer bags and ‘70s inspired hair cuts that mean you need to overdo the liner to help define the shape of your eyes.
It’s not all black eyeliner that you’ll be seeing though. While the debate of black vs navy blue eyeliner continues to go on in the background, other shades that you can experiment with include sable brown and deep burgundy. What we enjoy about these shades is that they give you definition and shape to your eyes, without being as harsh as black eyeliner. They add an unexpected pop of colour to the windows of your soul.
When you find something that you love, do it in reverse. That seems to be the philosophy of the beauty industry right now. After all, we’ve already been talking about reverse makeup and contouring – which revolves around applying your makeup products in reverse order.
The ‘reverse cat eye’ look is a little different in that it flips the silhouette upside down, meaning that your liner focuses on your lower lash line, instead of the outer corner of your eye. You can easily adapt this eyeliner look to make it as subtle or as dramatic as you like.
What makes this eyeshadow look more seductive is when you use a fluffy brush to blend the liner under your lash line for a smoky look. If you want a more defined look, add your favourite liquid liner to the inner corner of your eyes, before applying mascara to your top and bottom lashes for a fluffy look. With the addition of liquid eyeliner and mascara, you can make your reverse eyeliner look more dramatic and striking for a bold appearance.
What we love about the reverse cat eye makeup trend is that it’s beginner friendly and easy to recreate. You can go all out by finishing off your look with false eyelashes or keep it simple with a few coats of mascara on the top and bottom lashes.
After living through a global pandemic, working from home, and the reality of mask wearing, heavy makeup looks have become a thing of the past. People want a more streamline and easy to use makeup routine that has a simpler approach. ‘Skinamlism’ focuses on embracing your natural beauty, focusing on evening your texture and creating a glowing radiance.
One thing that we know for sure is that skinimalism is here to stay – well after the pandemic and long after fall 2021. With our social calendars starting to fill up again, we’re all looking to keep our skin healthy to maintain a radiant glow. Keep your buildable conceal and contour products nearby and focus on letting your skin breathe to keep it looking radiant and healthy.
You can update your makeup for fall 2021 by adding an oil-free or lightweight foundation to help your skin transition from summer to fall. These formulas are easier to blend and will give your skin the hydration it needs to prevent flakiness and dryness.
One trend that we’re waiting to welcome back in fall 2021 is glossy lips. During the pandemic and when mask mandates were in place, no one could show off their lipstick or glossy lips. It meant that our lip products were going unloved in our makeup bag. It’s time to make up for lost time with a glossy lip look.
You want to find a lipgloss that has either a glossy or satin shine – whichever you prefer. Choose a hydrating formula that you can wear alone, as a topper over lipstick, or as a base to lock in moisture and hydration. If you’re not sure which lip products to use with a skinimalistic makeup look or if you’re going for a semi-matte look, glossy lips are always a great idea.
We’re already back to talking about eye makeup. It’s one trend that is going to last through the pandemic and beyond. For fall 2021, your lashes are once again taking centre stage. You want to work on getting your lashes as fluffy and voluminous as possible, with definition in the upper and lower lashes. You can invest in a regular lash lift and tint for a low-maintenance look or purchase faux lashes if you’re not able to go to a salon for a lash lift.
Soapy brows are one trend that we know always associate with fall makeup. When we’re thinking about things like lash lifts and reverse cat eye looks, you’ve got to remember about your brows. While your eyes are the window to your soul, it’s your brows that frame and shape your face.
The beauty of soap brows is that they work with any makeup look and are easy to achieve. If you missed this trend when it was all the rage last summer, now is your chance to give it a go.
As soon as we saw the fuschia pink lids and electric blue shades on the Versace fall/winter 2021 runway, we knew that dramatic electric eyeshadow colours were going to be one of the biggest trends for fall 2021. Instead of reaching for soft browns and burnt oranges this season, swap it out for a neon hue. As life starts to come back to normal, it’s time to celebrate – and there’s no better way than with your eyeshadow!
One of the biggest trends in beauty right now is neon. It’s neon lights everywhere you look. The resurgence of the beauty trends is in no small part due to the Y2K aesthetic, which is making everyone experiment with colour. It’s no surprise that after almost 18 months of living through a pandemic, that people want to see colour back in their lives. Neon eyeshadow is an easy way to experiment with colour without having to buy a whole new makeup bag.
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.
If eyes are the window to your soul, then your eyebrows are the curtains. They frame your face and can change your look with just one stroke of product. There are dozens of eyebrow colours and products for you to choose from – whether you prefer to use a brow pencil, gel, or a wax. Amongst all the different formulas and product types, it can be even more confusing to find the right eyebrow colour that compliments your hair and skin.
Blush is a staple makeup product that we don’t often talk about. We usually focus on things like lipstick colours and foundation formulas. We think it’s time to shine a light on blush and how to correctly apply it. If you do it the wrong way, your blush can make your face look like it’s dropped and give it a unflattering finish. Applying your blush correctly means that you can naturally lift your face and give your skin a healthy blush.
