Spring 2021 makeup trends
1. Glittery Gold Lids
After the year we had, we could all use some sparkle, amirite? Using gold eyeshadow brightens up the face in an instant. Don't feel afraid to take these out for a spin with your more casual, day outfits as well.

2. Rhinestone Sparkles
Get dramatic and experiment with some stick-on sparkles around the eyes. This was a trend that was seen all over the SS21 runways, and the pared-down version makes for a great, attention-grabbing look IRL.
3. Emerald Smokey Eye
Ditch your regular smokey eye for a coloured up version this spring. Blend your favourite jewel-toned hue and watch as everyone turns( emerald) green with envy.
4. The New Monochrome
Monochrome makeup—that's using the same colour all over your face for the uninitiated—has been trending for a while now. This spring, try going neon or bright with your palette or opt for classic tones for a more understated look.
5. The Nude Lip
Classic nudes never go out of style for spring. Line your lips with a matching shade of lip liner and layer on some gloss for a fresh, shiny pout.
6. Bat Those Baby Blue Eyes (And Lashes)
Have some fun with colour and add a striking blue liner under your eyes, or layer your lashes with some blue mascara for that extra oomph.

7. The Peach Lip
A peachy-orange hue is cooler than your regular pinks and reds. Find the right colour for your skin tone and glow-up your look in an instant.
8. The Bold Blush
Did someone say all-over flush? Wake up your face by blending a pretty pink blush onto your cheeks, temples and beneath your brow bones.
9. Poppin' Highlighter
Glow big or go home this spring, strobe your cheeks with oodles of shine and light up every space you enter. Image: Namrata Soni's Instagram
10. Purple Eyeliner
Swap out your black liner for an eye-catching purple shade. Pro Tip: Cream-based liners are better for creating a soft cat-eyed look than liquid ones. Image: Danyrxb Instagram
