Makeup is Back! With some adjustments for the reality that for an indefinite period of time, we will, periodically, possibly be asked to wear face masks. Kitten eyes are having a moment. Zendaya led the way with this trend – her short, skinny eyeliner intrigued at the Space Jam: A New Legacy premiere. Application Tip: The technique is pretty simple – start your liner in the middle of your eye instead of tracing it all the way from the inner corner. Then, use short, thin strokes to draw along your lash line, and give it a tiny flick at the end for a subtle wing.
Ultra-long lashes remained popular as masks shifted our focus to the eyes. Pile on the mascara – coat after coat – making sure it doesn’t flake on you.
“Bold lips are back in a big way, but with more playful and idiosyncratic twists, from Vivienne Westwood’s gilded lip liner to Dries Van Noten’s muted, soft-focus alternatives to a classic red lip.” Vogue’s Lauren Valenti reported, noting that the fashion runways helped us wrap our heads around what beauty might look like in a post-vaccine world. To get the look, try Patrick Ta Matte Suede Lipstick in She Must Be New.
“Fall 2021 is about bold lip colors and statement eyes,” says Mali Thomas Bobbi Brown, global artist in residence. “We should be open to vibrant reds and orange lip color, and eyes can be adorned with rich jewel tones or artistic liner.”
A long-wear liquid lip gloss will stay in place with or without a mask. It’s perfect for a Zoom meeting or on a date. Try Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lip in Big Apple!
An array of makeup looks have emerged in the lead, some retro in focus, such as a Y2K redux (think Eckhaus Latta’s glitter-washes cheeks). 360-degree eyeliner is in vogue, just like many readers wore in high school. “Don’t forget to apply to your waterline – xoxo.” Harper Bazaar posted. Your cheeks should be on show as you go out on the town post-Covid. Iconic Department store Bergdorf Goodman has launched Victoria Beckham’s makeup line, a perfect blend of sustainability & luxury with formulas that last all day (and night). Since Beckham launched her makeup in 2019, it’s only been available online in the States.
“I’m excited to launch my beauty collection at Bergdorf Goodman,” Beckham told Harperbazaar.com. “I know my community wants to be able to touch and feel products in person, and the store is the perfect showcase for that.”
The brand’s newest launch is Cheeky Posh, a creamy blush stick that lasts and gives your face a lift. “It’s perfect for a pout touch-up,” Beckham says. The cream blush is available in five buildable shades for all skin tones: Knickers, a peachy melon; Playground, a terra-cotta nude; Major, a natural pink; Miniskirt, a berry rose; and Rollerskate, a bright coral pink.
“The good thing about Cheeky Posh is that everybody can use it in every shade,” Beckham says. “I”m so passionate about it because if you use a tiny bit of it, it can really lift your look and brighten your complexion.”
