Are you a fan of the barely-there makeup trend? Are you ready to take it to the next level? ‘Soft glam’ is one of the biggest trends right now and takes the dewy, healthy glow from the barely-there look and elevates it with a radiant shine and airbrush finish.
What we love about soft glam is that it’s a sharp break away from the days of sharp eyebrows, heavy contour and full face of makeup. Soft glam focuses on adding definition and structure to your face with minimal product in the most natural way possible. Like most beauty trends right now, your base products are essential for creating a healthy, dew glow that carries the look.
The soft glam beauty trends have something to offer everyone – whether you’re a fan of ‘no makeup’ makeup or want to tone down your every look to bring it in line with beauty trends. Soft glam is a timeless aesthetic that works for any occasion, whether you’re heading into work or attending a wedding.
It’s unapologetically feminine, universally flattering, and easy to create with products that you’ll already have at home in your makeup bag and vanity. If you’re a fan of the ‘hygge’ lifestyle of comfort-driven trends and style choices, soft glam is also for you.
Everyone from celebrity makeup artists to influencers are fans of the soft glam look. It’s an easy way to accentuate your features without hiding it under layers upon layers of makeup. If you subscribe to the philosophy of ‘skinimalism’, then soft glam is the perfect makeup look for you. Part of the focus of soft glam is creating a smooth and radiant base that gives your makeup a flawless look.
We’re sharing everything you need to know about soft glam makeup, including how to recreate it at home with your favourite products. If you’re looking to shake up your makeup look but don’t want to go outside your comfort zone, then soft glam is the perfect trend to experiment with.
Soft glam is a beauty trend that focuses on emphasizing your natural features and creating a healthy, dewy glow for your skin. You want to make it look as though your skin has been airbrushed. Unlike other makeup trends, soft glam focuses on a muted colour palette that flatters your natural colour and skin tone. You can imagine shades of flush pink, brown eyeliner, and simple nude lipstick.
With soft glam, the more understated the better. This aesthetic is a step up from the ‘no makeup’ look but carries across some of the same elements – including ditching your heavy-duty foundation for a softer and more buildable concealer and lightweight foundation.
You want to make sure you’re covering your blemishes and accentuating your best features instead of trying to hide away under layers upon layers of makeup. If you’re looking to boost your confidence level, soft glam is a makeup look that will make you fall back in love with your skin.
At the heart of this trend is smooth and radiant-looking skin. Although the colour palette will change from person to person, it’s all about blending the pigment into your skin to create a ‘soft’ look. Wave goodbye to your smoky eye and say hello to a more minimalistic and softer look.
Instead of the chiselled contouring look, soft glam calls for the ‘draping’ style of contouring. You’ll also find that cream and liquid products are the most popular formulas amongst soft glam makeup artists due to their easy blendability.
One common misconception that we want to correct is the idea that you can’t use full coverage makeup for a soft glam look. You absolutely can, but you want to consider the techniques you’re using to apply your products, along with the type of products you’re using. Does your foundation cover all your imperfections but make your skin look cakey? If it does, then it’s time to ditch it.
You want to avoid any harsh lines or contrasts in colour and texture in your makeup look. Everything should look as natural and seamless as possible to give your skin a healthy glow and a radiant finish.
It’s worth pointing out that – like all good things – you’ll need to show a little patience as you practice the soft glam makeup look. Like anything, you’ll need to learn the techniques and different products that are used to create the soft glam look. If you’re someone who usually wears heavier makeup, it might take you a while to wrap your head around the idea of soft glam.
Contouring is one of the biggest trends within the beauty industry. In recent years, we’ve gone from dramatic Kim Kardashian worthy contour to a more natural look. Even Mario Dedivanovic, the go-to makeup artist for the Kardashians sisters, has switched to a light-handed approach for contouring. With beauty trends all pointing towards a ‘natural’ look, it’s no surprise that “soft sculpting” is the trend that everyone is talking about.
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.
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.
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.
