Each new season brings new beauty trends with it—and as 2021 rolls on, an array of fresh new looks is beginning to emerge.
The season ahead invites us to strip back and embrace our natural beauty with barely-there skin tints and relaxed hair, while having fun playing with bold colours and textures.
There are so many incredible beauty products just waiting to be discovered at Eastland, so read on to discover five beauty trends to try this season.
1. Minimal skin
The core of any beauty routine is inevitably the base—and after spending so much time at home last year, our love for skincare has never been stronger. This season, we’re seeing lit-from-within skin at the core of beauty routines.
To achieve an effortlessly radiant look, consider incorporating active ingredients and nourishing products into your skincare rituals. We recommend trying Tatcha’s The Dewy Serum from Mecca Maxima, the Daily Reviving Concentrate facial oil from Kiehl’s, or the Aqua Reotier Ultra Thirst-Quenching Cream Moisturiser from L’Occitane.
Then, ditch the ‘caked-on’ make up look and let your real skin be the star with a sheer foundation or tint such as NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser from Mecca Cosmetica.
2. Bold eyes
This season, big, bright ‘80s inspired eyes are centre stage—and we’re here for it. This trend is all about having fun, getting creative and making a bold statement.
Step outside of your comfort zone and experiment with eyeliner in vibrant colours like blue, green, orange or pink. After all, who doesn’t love a pop of colour? Then, take it up a notch by playing with vibrant eyeshadow, mascara or glitter.
Ready to try this trend? Peruse the products available at Inglot, MAC Cosmetics or Mecca Maxima.
3. Relaxed hair
Expect to see effortless, nonchalant hair styles trending this season, as we begin to honour a more natural aesthetic. Use products to hold and enhance your hair’s real texture like the Kevin Murphy Doo Over dry powder finishing spray from Hairhouse, or Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast from Mecca Maxima.
Claw clips are the hair accessory of the moment—and a make for an easy addition for your hair styling repertoire. Use the claw clip to hold up your hair at the back, leaving some strands out at the front to frame your face. We love the variety of stylish claw clips available at Seed; no-fuss, yet oh-so-chic.
4. High gloss
Trade shimmer for shine this season with a glassy-finish lip gloss. Gone are the days of the matte lip; this season, it’s all about an ultra-glossy look that lights up your face.
Keep your base close to your natural lip colour, then add a pop of lip gloss to amp it up. The more shine, the better!
Want to get into gloss? We suggest Stila Beauty Boss Lip Gloss from Mecca Maxima or Lipglass from MAC Cosmetics.
5. Artistic nails
This season, it’s time to embrace a fun approach to nails. From abstract organic designs to pastel-hued French tips, there’s an abundance of new nail trends to try this season.
Try a colour-block French manicure from Embellir Nails & Beauty or keep it simple with a nail polish in a barely-there hue from Inglot. Then, once you’ve got your nails perfected, keep your hands hydrated with a hand balm from L’Occitane or Kiehl’s.
