The Beauty Edit: Four make-up looks to swear by this season

Try these make-up looks this season


August 13, 2021

With more people getting vaccinated and social-distancing restrictions loosening up, it’s the perfect time to show off the looks you’ve been experimenting with while being home. This season, make-up trends are once again playful eyes with expressive eye liner and slightly heavy on the lips with a sun kissed glow. This season is for effortless beauty.

Dewy Skin

Ditch heavy foundations and concealers in favour of showing off your healthy skin with a sun kissed glow. This trend is all about embracing your flawless and natural-looking complexion. Hyaluronic acid serums are trending to add to your routine for a quick boost to healthy looking skin. Keep your face glowing with natural colour highlighter and flushed cheeks are always foolproof options. For a glowy look, go for a light coverage formula to get that sheer, almost wet shine. Let your skin breathe, be light and natural. We will probably still be in our facemasks, so this light and sheer make-up is the way to go.

Statement Lips

This season bright and playful lips are trending. Soft nudes and browns are taking a backseat- bringing vibrant coral and pastel hues in. Bright pinks, bold reds, popping corals are a sure win for the season. Matte or very high pigmented formulas that are long wear are what to look for when it comes to colour and texture.

Expressive Eyes

For those who are already fans of eyeliner, take your look to the next level by upgrading to smoldering eyeliner. This season, sharp lines are still going strong, whether it’s a classic cat eye or a 60’s - inspired negative space liner. If eye shadow is more your speed, skip the sheer finishes and try a bold matte shade. This season we are also seeing a lot of colourful liners in Aqua and blue shades for a subtle pop of color which make a great make-up statement especially if you’re not ready to fully commit to a bright, bold eye shadow.

Bold Brows

Big and bold brows are still trending this season along with fun eye shadow looks. Defined and fuller eyebrows make your face stand out and give you a youthful look. You can also add natural looking falsies to enhance your eye area or opt for a super undetectable look; long wispy lash extensions lift the eyes for a defined face. A lot of fashionistas are opting for wet look lash and want lash extensions that match their ultra-natural glass skin; a trend we will be seeing a lot this season.
