The year 2021 is going to be a year of innovation and exciting new formulas for makeup products. The new makeup trends we spotted at New York Fashion Week spring-summer 2024 are undoubtedly going to make everybody fall head over heels for them. It’s the most wonderful time of the year—no, it’s not the holidays (yet); however, it is a fashion holiday: fashion month. And while you may be eyeing the celebs sitting front row or dreaming of your next outfit, the runway is the perfect place to discover what’s next in beauty.

The new makeup trends make you let out your inner creativity and skills and you do better with applying makeup.
Keeping up with the latest nail trends and trying them out is extremely easy. You just need the right makeup products for creating innovative looks and you are good to go. We shall be discussing some of the new beauty trends, including nail trends, that are going to be in vogue in the year 2021.
1. NO FOUNDATION LOOK
New Makeup Trends 2021. Many women today have started to become comfortable in their own skin and do not feel the need to hide their imperfections. This new makeup trend eliminates the use of foundation and lets the skin breathe. This look includes the use of a little lip and cheek tint as well as a highlighter to give the face a naturally illuminating and glowing look for a healthy glow. The no foundation look is definitely one of the best trends because it lets the skin breathe and minimizes the chances of getting clogged pores and acne. At Christian Siriano, however, they favored an overall soft glam look using the Beautiful Skin Foundation and Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer from Charlotte Tilbury. Elyse Reneau, Executive Director of Global Beauty at Too Faced, states, “Humidity has never looked so sculpted!”
New Makeup Trends 2021. Another makeup product that is optional yet amazing for such makeup look is a tinted moisturizer. A tinted moisturizer works exactly like a foundation but is milder with a little less coverage. It gives a natural appearance to the skin, making kit look flawless without being cakey. We recommend using Bare Minerals hydrating gel cream for use in place of foundation. Its creamy consistency makes it look very natural on the skin, giving you a healthy complexion with neutral tones.
We always use filters on our photos to make our skin look flawless. However, the airbrushed foundation look trend is going to give you a flawless complexion. It feels as if you are wearing an Instagram filter in real life. How amazing!
You need to exfoliate and scrub your face properly for creating a smooth base for your foundation. After applying moisturizer and primer, apply a matte foundation, concealer, and the rest of your makeup. The trick lies in the use of an egg-shaped beauty blender or a stippling brush for applying the foundation.
New Makeup Trends 2021. This way, the foundation will absorb evenly into the skin without caking up the skin. Finishing off the look with a translucent loose powder is an extremely important step in creating an airbrushed foundation look.
By following these steps, you’d be able to create the perfect airbrushed foundation look that is extremely trendy these days and will continue being trendy in the future.
We recommend using the Beauty Blender’s Original Makeup Sponge for blending out your foundation evenly. This sponge is extremely smooth and makes the foundation absorb evenly into the skin without creating dry streaks of foundations. It is also easy to clean after every use.
As for the setting powder, we highly recommend Coty Airspun Loose Setting Powder. This setting powder not only sets makeup in place but also hides the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With its amazing coverage and long-lasting stay on the skin, it is going to help you achieve you that perfect airbrushed and real-life filter look.
2. GLASS SKIN
Ever since K-beauty became famous and trendy, it has us hooked. The Korean skincare is famous for its excellent quality formulations and effective results. The term ‘’Glass Skin’’ got popular recently and everyone started getting obsessed over it.
Glass skin basically refers to the skin that is so flawless and glowing that it gives an appearance of a literal glass. Thankfully, there is a way we can make our skin look like glass using makeup. The trick to this is to use a strobing cream or a cream highlighter. Both these products give a blinding glow to the skin and it actually does look like glass. The strobing cream is applied under the foundation on top of the moisturizer and it gives a naturally luminous touch to the skin. In the end, the cream highlighter enhances the glow and gives your skin just the right amount of blinding glow.
The strobing cream we recommend for using under your foundation is M.A.C Strobe Cream. This strobe cream creates a naturally glowing look and makes skin look luminous and smooth. It contains ingredients that are going to awaken dull skin, making it look dewy and fresh.
The Balm cosmetics’ Mary Dew-minimizer liquid highlighter works well to give the appearance of having glass skin. Liquid highlighters always have better pigmentation and they blend easily into the skin. This highlighter has a very smooth and creamy consistency which makes it blend well into the skin and give you flawless and luminous glass look.
This new trend is swarming our social media and we see almost every other woman rocking this look almost every day. Unlike the traditional eyeliner that focuses on the lash line, this eyeliner is applied on the crease of the eye to give a bolder and better look.
The floating eyeliner look is not difficult to master. You need to start by prepping your eyelids using a primer. This set will smooth out your skin and create an even base for eyeshadow application. Set your eyelid with a nude shade. Now, be careful and determine where you want to start applying the liner on your crease. You can use any colour, be creative. Start creating an arch with your liner and create a wing.
You can blend your eyeliner out for a more dramatic effect or leave it be. There is also an option of adding the same coloured eyeshadow to create an intense look.
We recommend using NYX Cosmetics’ Vivid Brights Liner to create the perfect crease eyeliner look and play up your high cheekbones. The colours offered by this eyeliner are very bright and the tip of the liner makes it easy to apply. This eyeliner is mess-free and is very easy to handle. It dries up quickly and does not create any smudges. For a more refined and unique look, you can take inspiration from makeup artist Sheika Daley, who showcased a double cat eye using Lancôme’s Idôle Liner, as seen in LaQuan Smith’s latest collection. To complete the look, lashes were coated in Pat McGrath Labs FetishEyes Mascara for a spidery finish.
- This new trend is a life-saver for women with small or hooded eyes. The colourful accented inner corner of the eyes makes the eyes look bigger and brighter. This fresh new trend is definitely going to be one of the most amazing trends of the year 2021.
This new and chic look is very easy to achieve. You would just need two colours that should be complementing each other. One bold and bright coloured eyeshadow and one neutral-coloured eyeshadow is needed to create this look. Apply a pop of bright-coloured eyeshadow on the inner corner of the eyes, as demonstrated by makeup artist Diane Kendal at the 3 1 Phillip Lim show. To enhance the overall look, it is important to use a lip liner that complements the chosen eyeshadow colors. Additionally, for a trendy touch, you can also experiment with a two-toned lip effect. For example, you can try applying a softer color like an almost acidy, pale peach on the top lip, and pair it with an earthy terracotta shade on the bottom lip. This technique adds a playful and modern twist to your makeup look.
The light-coloured eyeshadow that complements the bright coloured one should be applied on the eyelids. We also recommend you to add a pop of same-coloured highlighter in the inner corner of the eyes to intensify the look.
BH Cosmetics’ Take Me Back to Brazil palette has some of the freshest and bright colours that are perfect for adding a pop of colour to your inner eyes. The pigmentation of all the pressed pigments in this palette is insane without creating any fallout. Its waterproof and long-lasting formula is going to make it stick to your tear ducts for longer periods of time without the need of constantly touching-up.
This new makeup trend is all about experimenting with bold and bright colours, including the vibrant color lined eye and hair color that will dominate the street and our makeup bag. We have seen celebrities from Dua Lipa to Lana Del Rey, rocking this colourful look. This new trend looks quite intimidating but we have to admit how much we love the helmut lang trend and are willing to try it out. In line with the upcoming makeup trends, we can expect to see the influence of Barbie pink in the coming seasons. The hangover to Barbie pink will be red as we have begun to see it for Fall 2023. It will continue to be important for Spring 2024 in more of a classic manner. Places that red are common, such as your nails and lips, will see a fun upgrade.
All you need for creating neon eyeshadow look is creativity and neon eyeshadows. Cover your lid with the neon colour of your own choice. Blend it evenly all over your lid and you are good to go. It is very easy to create a neon eyeshadow look and it looks extremely chic and modern.
We highly recommend using Huda Beauty Neon Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette as it has the most pigmented and the brightest neon eyeshadows. It is available in 3 different palettes with three different shades like neo orange, neon pink, and neon green. Its pigmentation is extremely good and it adds an instant pop of colour to the eyes with no fallout.
New Makeup Trends 2021. The concept of coloured eyelashes is quite new and is taking the beauty industry by storm. We are not really used to seeing coloured eyelashes but they look extremely mesmerizing and stylish.
For achieving the coloured eyelashes look, you only need a pair of false lashes, concealer, and an eyeshadow palette. Before putting on false lashes, you need to cover the lashes completely with concealer to get them ready for applying eyeshadow. Apply a colourful eyeshadow of your choice of colour and completely coat the lashes. Make sure to blend in your real lashes nicely by coating them with the coloured eyeshadow after applying the coloured false lashes. Be creative with your skills!
NYX Cosmetics Ultimate Shadow Brights Palette is going to give you that extra pop of colour on your lashes. This small palette offers some of the brightest colours. Their highly pigmented formula makes it easier to stick to the lashes without falling out everywhere.
We are head over heels for the dewy makeup look and the new glossy eyeshadow trend excites us even more with its elegance and beauty. Almost every makeup artist out there is following this trend and jumping in the bandwagon of creating a glossy eyeshadow look.
The glossy eyeshadow look is a little tricky to achieve but with the right products and the right skill, it can be mastered in no time. Start by choosing an eyeshadow first. You can choose from matte or shimmery eyeshadows, including the ones used by celebrity makeup artists. Make sure to not use glittery eyeshadows as they are not suitable for creating this look. The formula of the eyeshadow can be liquid, creamy, or powdered. Apply the eyeshadow on the lids.
Now, apply an eye gloss on top of the eyeshadow, making it stick to the eyeshadow. Just like that, you can create glossy eyes.
We recommend using Eddie Funkhouser Chromatographic Eye Gloss for creating the perfect glossy eyeshadow look. Its buttery formula is going to spread nicely on top of the eyeshadow and stay there for hours without the need for constant touch-ups.
As much as we love sleek and thin brows, we are also not afraid to rock the new bushy eyebrows look. This new trend is extremely popular and has taken the beauty industry by storm. Many women have stopped tweezing and trimming their eyebrows in order to create the perfect looking bushy brows.
Women with naturally thick and bushy brows are truly blessed. However, women with thin and fine brows are the ones who suffer the most. Thankfully, we have a way to create an effect of bushy brows for all the girls with thin browse out there. All you need is a volumizing brow gel or a pomade and a spoolie brush.
Start off by brushing our eyebrows upwards and fill in with the pomade or the volumizing gel. Try to keep the strokes very light and do not overfill your brows. Do not forget to use just the right amount of product to create the perfect looking bushy eyebrows.
Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow + Volumizing Brow Gel offers the gel as well as the spoolie to create the perfect looking bushy brows. It will not only give colour to your brows but also volumize them.
8. BLURRED LIPS
- Although bold and dark lips look amazing and will never go out of trend, there is a new trend that has everybody hooked to it. We are talking about the famous blurred lips here. The smooth looking and blurred out lips, also known as “revenge lips” or a statement lip, is the fresh new trend and is extremely popular amongst the beauty gurus. Coach kept the makeup minimal, but for a focal point, they opted for a blurred-out ruby lipstick by Too Faced.
Achieving the blurred lips involves a number of steps. First of all, you need to hydrate your lips to smooth out the surface of your lips for better and smooth application. After prepping your lips, choose a lipstick and pick it up on a lip brush. Start off by applying lipstick on the center of your top and bottom lip and slowly smudge it out towards the corner using a lip brush. The lipstick should be smudged out evenly.
The lipstick should be darker at the center and lighter at the corners. You can add a gloss or lip plumper to complete this look.
We recommend using Maybelline New York Color Sensational Matte Lipstick in the shade of red lipstick, which is available in 30 different shades. The lipsticks offered by this brand are highly pigmented and are blended very easily. They also stay up on the lips for 24 hours without creating lines. Use Rimmel London’s Stay Glossy lip gloss to finish your look and slay!
Cat-eye look was famous back in the 90s but we are seeing rising again in the present era. Almost all the celebrities around have rocked that look and we are going to tell you how you can rock it too.
The cat-eye look requires only a good eyeliner, such as the one used by makeup artist Daniel Sallstrom. It can be a liquid or a matte eyeliner, whatever you are comfortable with. After prepping your eyes, start applying the eyeliner at the outer corner of your eye and draw a line in the shape of a wing. The wing should not be too small or too long. Make sure to keep the balance and draw a wing according to the length you want. Make sure to draw an even line of the eyeliner and do not overdo it.
Now, connect the line to your upper lash line and you are good to go.
We recommend using NYX Professional Makeup Ink Eyeliner for creating the most dramatic cat eyes.
Our makeup skills and habits change with time and in the present era, we are not afraid of experimenting with all kinds of looks. The growth of new trends we see today is truly amazing and is much better than the previous trends as it is bold and unapologetic. The year 2021 is definitely going to be full of colors, glitter, glow and shimmer with everybody letting out their inner makeup artist, enhancing beauty with their creativity.
