There’s never a shortage of new beauty looks that you can experiment with, and this week we’ve rounded up some of the best trends you can try for yourself in SS21. With how to achieve a soft winged look, ways to coordinate elements of your beauty with your fashion, nail inspiration, and achieving your dream summer skin.
Coordinating colours can be the most effective technique both in fashion and beauty. In this beauty look Joy Crookes has opted for one SS21’s most popular eye make up trends, the coloured liner. With a Burgundy red shade outlining the crease which matches with the tips of her nails. Two note worthy ideas for your beauty round up this spring.
Your beauty look doesn’t always have to be mega glam and sharp. Camilla Cabello shows us how to achieve a subtle glam, with natural shades of blush and shadow all accentuated with a soft liner. The wing is trending again.
It’s easy to add an extra hint of volume to your lip routine this season with one of the most noteworthy trends – making them ombre. Instead of just one simple shade, beauty girls are using layers to create a colour changing effect. Dove Cameron went for a nude lip with a darker shade in the outer corners, very 90s.
It’s natural to feel like creating a simpler, more natural look when the days start getting hotter – and for that we must formulate our summer skin. It’s important to take skin care seriously, especially with higher UV levels and sweat making your face more prone to blemishes. So before your go-to make up routine, ensure your face is ready.
Let’s talk shadow play, coming in the form of smoky eyes and contour. Chloe Bailey opted for the classic darker toned eye in her new music video, with a seductive shadow effect on the lid creating a mysterious glam look. Another element of your make up look which can achieve this is contour, the tool which constructs and frames your face. In this look Chloe accentuates her cheekbones like a pro.
Let’s Talk Nails
If there’s one beauty trend which stays timeless, it’s nails. Acrylics are seasonless, but perhaps the design you opt for changes. Winnie Harlow embraces the Spring sunshine and the resurgence of y2k with a cute butterfly pattern on each nail. These are trending this SS21, along with cyber dots, croc patterns and pastel colours. Lots of brands have started creating press ons, too, making it easy and affordable to get yourself a fresh set.
The perfect way to add a pop of colour to your beauty look is through eyeshadow. Blue is the best shade to experiment with this season, with its reminiscence of summer and neutrality it can go with everything. Samaria added a shimmer to her lid in a sky blue tone which coordinated with her ‘fit. Eyeshadow can be your best accessory.
