While there's no reason to abandon your tried-and-true cold-weather products entirely, consider adding these unexpected winter 2021 cosmetic trends into your regimen. There are pearl embellishments involved.
A cosmetic artist based in New York City, says that winter is all about new makeup ideas. We seem to have grown tired of the cookie-cutter, Instagram makeup trends — like highlight, contour, bake and repeat — in order to arrive at a cosmetic style that honours the unique individual and her flare. That could mean a gilded eye, a bold lip, or brilliant blush draped high on the cheek to frame the face, but always with clean skin shining through so, the wearer's innate beauty is accentuated rather than concealed.
And celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass, whose customers include Julianne Moore and Elizabeth Banks, agrees. Everything from '90s grunge makeup to insane embellished futuristic styles. It's a celebration of individuality and a way for us to have a little fun and frivolity in the midst of life's craziness.
If you're looking to try something new with your winter makeup this season, read scrolling to see seven trends that the pros are currently loving.
Grunge from the 1990s
Bass is seeing both heavy smudged makeup around the eyes and rich lip colours in the '90s grunge fashion. Strong features and a toughness that comes from a perfection. She believes that the beauty world has been fixated on the ideal cat-eye for too long and that now is the moment to develop cool, bold makeup that can be done in a flash.
I'm seeing a lot of different coloured metallics on the face, from smokey eyes and eyeliner to lip liner and gloss. This type of makeup is bright and fun, and it looks great when photographed, which is right now the most vital thing. It may seem to be quiet and lovely while yet being bold and eye-catching.
Tasha Reiko Brown, a celebrity makeup artist who has worked with Gabrielle Union and Alicia Keys, is a fan of glittering eyes this winter, describing the effect as "high beam sheen." Who doesn’t love wearing the look with Chanel Holiday Collection. Using a lightly bristles fluff brush, apply a wash of any of the classic colours of gold or patent glossy black over [the] eyes. Apply two layers of mascara to your eyes for a dramatic effect.
Skin That Shines
Ciara's go-to makeup artist, Yolonda Frederick, tells TZR, This winter's trends represent what motivates people creatively. "Creating radiant and luminous skin is the most remarkable practice in my wheelhouse." Which, incidentally, forces you to look after your skin!" There are certain things you can do to get glowing skin: To begin, apply a dewy foundation. After that, smear a small amount of powder throughout your T-zone and finish with a spritz of Tatcha's Luminous Dewy Skin Mist.
Matte Red Lipstick
No, you don't have to abandon your favourite red lip this season. Tobi Henney, a cosmetic artist who works with Ashley Graham and Megan Fox, loves the matte look of the Christmas favourite. It's the ideal technique to make your eyes pop, and it can be paired with a natural base for a more prominent eye appearance. There's something for every skin tone, from classic reds to deep wines!
People are using all kinds of embellishments like crystals, pearls, and stars in an effort to look bolder, more whimsical, or unexpected. This is another way for the makeup artist to push the boundaries of cosmetics and give the face an unexpected 3D touch. Add a rhinestone to the outer corner of each eye for a delicate effect, or go all out and mimic the look above.
Brows that are strong and healthy
For winter 2021, bold, powerful brows reign supreme (are you really shocked at this point?). "I'm obsessed with the Babe Lash Volumizing Brow Filler," Gerstein says as it provides structure and depth to the eyebrows without shellacking it. When you remove the cream, the components in the formula condition the brow hairs, making them feel smoother. RevitaLash's new Lash & Brow Masque is another treatment for better brows. Use this product two times a week to restore your over-plucked or damaged eyebrows.
Bass is now obsessed with vibrant flashes of colour in places like the inner corners of the eyes, the lower lash line, or just a wash of shadow, especially when paired with a bare face. Without having to put on makeup. this is a terrific way to create a strong, eye-catching effect. It's ideal for anyone who wants to dabble in the current wild cosmetic trend without seeming overdone.
In conjunction with letting naturally glowing skin be your palette, winter makeup trends are emphasised on the eyes! Makeup artists are seeing a lot of rich bolder colours and strong geometric patterns for this trend. What's even more fascinating is the use of eye jewellery and even decals to highlight the eyes, giving any look a festive atmosphere! However, always be careful while following skincare trends because some bizarre trends can damage your skin.
