Logically, staying in and wearing a mask made us care about how we look in a different way. Putting on layers of make-up seemed irrelevant, and a healthy make-up look became the norm. Beauty connoisseurs predict that this trend will continue in 2021.
It’s all about that base
The healthy make-up look trend actually found its roots way back in a pre-Covid era but is gaining territory. We had a little chat with Ines Borgonjon, senior make-up artist at Mac. She told us that there’s a large focus on skincare at the moment. Rather than covering up our flaws with layers of make-up, we have to start with the base and take care of our skin first.
A good skincare routine that works for you is therefore essential, and you’ll need different or less make-up when the base is solid.
Create a natural-looking skin tone
First things first, and that’s making your skin tone more even. A light foundation can be applied, but we prefer a tinted moisturizer or BB cream such as the one from Klairs or Complexion Rescue. Using a BB cream will look more natural and add that extra glow. There’s also a smaller chance it will look cakey after an hour and most BB creams also contain an SPF. You can use a light powder afterwards if you need a little extra coverage, and don’t forget that concealer to cover up your dark circles.
