From ear make-up to shrooms: 10 beauty trends set to dominate in 2021


TextKristen Bateman

After the chaos of 2020, this year looks like it’s going to be more experimental than ever

2020 was undoubtedly a strange year, but with that, came the emergence of many beauty trends that were due to be accelerated into the new year. All that time indoors made us much more experimental with our beauty looks, but it also forced us to focus more on the eyes than anything else when outdoors, due to all the masks.

It’s arguably one of the most interesting times in history for the beauty industry (and everything else, really). We’ve changed the way we wear make-up, the way we use products and even the way we shop for them, and technology is ever-evolving in all categories. So, without further ado, these are the top 10 beauty trends we’re going to see in 2021.
