The main colors of 2021: in makeup, manicure, coloring

  • Posted 1 year ago

We will tell you how you need to look to be in trend in 2021.

The Pantone Color Institute has traditionally chosen two main colors for 2021. They are Illuminating (warming optimistic) and Ultimate Gray (practical and solid gray)– a combination of gray and yellow Pantone described as “inspiring and giving hope.” Interestingly, 2021 will be the first year for the first time in 20 years when two colors were chosen at once.

In addition, it is important to understand that Instagram, like the entire beauty world, is entering the era of naturalness. This will also affect the main beauty trends of 2021.

1. Manicure

Bright pastel

A multi-colored manicure is the easiest way to cheer you up in conditions of self-isolation and not too friendly December weather. Even if you’ve never painted your nails bright green or blue before, now is the time to reconsider your own conservative outlook on life and try to be bolder in everything– from manicure to profession or romantic dates (online).

Muted colors

However, if too bright colors are still not your aesthetics, you can start with a slightly muted option. Focus on quirky, sophisticated palettes like green quetzal, sugar almonds, galactic blue, black cheddar.

Colorful French

If you don’t like a lot of color in principle, just hint at the color. An elegant solution will be a multi-colored French manicure. It does not look so elegant and shocking, plus it does not require urgent correction, as it grows imperceptibly at the base.

The lights of a sun

When the weather doesn’t create a sunny mood, you can take matters into your own hands. So, if you limit a rainbow manicure to one color scheme, it will sound completely new. Orange and sunny shades will be relevant, which can be applied both in one tone, or add statement accents in the form of a drop or glitter coating.

2. Makeup

Neon strokes

2020 has given a new understanding of minimalist makeup. Now it is not in absolute naturalness, but in neat blotches of neon palette. Unusual eye makeup in the form of arrows with a bright effect in 2021 can be created with a white liner or pencil, as well as shadows in black and bright neon. Thousands of ways to make a unique make-up and even more for that. The main thing is not too much. Neon shades don’t fit natural makeup patterns. But in 2021, you definitely won’t live by patterns.

Pink eyelashes

It’s time to put the classic black mascara aside and experiment with its colored counterparts. If you find it difficult to go for neon pink right away, start with something quieter: soft pink or smoky pink to add mystery to the look.

Monochrome makeup

The masters agree that this is the most beautiful eye makeup trend of this year, which gives the image an endless tenderness, dreaminess and romance. And you don’t have to stick to just one color in your makeup palette. Choose one shade for the inner corner, close to it for the center of the eyelid, and the last one for the outer corner of the eye.

Blue in the eyes

Instead of focusing all your attention on the upper eyelid, do not regret the color liner for the lower one. Use the same color or a slightly lighter color such as blue.

3. Coloring

“Edible” hair colors

Cold bru, toasted coconut, hot chocolate and vanilla chai latte — 2021 hair trends inspired by drinks and desserts could make a menu.

“Edible” color combinations will really be in vogue. Although in 2020, the trend was “strawberry” blond, caramel and deep chocolate shades. In addition, a cold “ice” blond will be relevant next season.
