Bling on the Makeup

Updated: Mar 17, 2021

With COVID-19 turning the world upside down, things have been very different for not only makeup artists but makeup in general! Here is what is trending this season.

They say eyes are the windows to our souls and because we are wearing masks most of the time nowadays, using makeup to enhance them has really brought out people's creativity. The show Euphoria is still a huge inspiration for bedazzled peepers, and rhinestones have become a ‘haute’ commodity. This season is all about washes of colour - adding sparkling jewels to adorn the eye area creates a very couture vibe.

[Pro tip: Blend a wash of pastel eyeshadow all over the lids. Use a dark kohl eye pencil for instant bedroom eyes by lining your water line and smudging with a pencil brush. Top off with a few coats of jet-black mascara. Add stick-on jewels to make the look high-fashion.]

Even though our lips aren’t as visible as they used to be, that doesn’t mean they can’t make a statement when they are visible - and that statement is red. Red lips are so classic and pair perfectly with the holidays. Bright, blue-based reds and classic vintage reds will compliment any skin tone and jazz up any makeup look in one swipe!

[Pro tip: Make sure to use a lipliner to create a crisp and even lip shape and a matte lipstick for longer wear.]

The biggest thing trending in makeup right now can be found all over social media - Instagram, YouTube, and, most recently, TikTok. You can go to any of these platforms and search up the latest trends, find the best hacks and products on the market with one click. People want to know the quickest way to achieve a polished look or what’s on-trend, and hitting any of these platforms is the easiest way to stay in the know in the makeup world!

So, whether you are adorning the eyes or rocking a sexy lip, the most important thing is to have fun with makeup and wear what makes you feel your best self!
