The Hair And Make-Up Trends Taking 2021 By Storm

beauty trends 2021


If there’s ever been a beginning of an era that could do with a total new decade do-over it’s 2020. Rather than the triumphant start to the roaring Twenties we optimistically hoped for last December, the past year has been overarchingly indoors, isolated and, at times, inconsolably sad. Even our beauty routines took a hit. As hairdressers and salons everywhere closed, we perfected cutting our own hair, returned to box dyes and mixed up endless DIY face masks. Where quizzes and puzzles replaced restaurants and raves, we mastered the messy bun and red lip combo solely for 2D Zoom interactions in our pyjamas.

So, as 2020 comes to an end you won’t find us mourning another year over. Instead we’re looking forward to 2021 and to a fresh, new 365. Accordingly, we turned to the hair and make-up pros nominated in the Fashion Awards’ coveted New Wave category to predict the future beauty trends destined to redefine the Twenties and signal a celebratory new start to the decade. Because, frankly, we’ve decided 2020 didn’t count.

From retro glamour and minimal eyebrows to CGI make-up and butterfly clips, these are the innovative, inspiring and uninhibited beauty trends forecasted to bring us a new look and a whole lot of joy in 2021.

What I’ve learnt about beauty in 2020 is…

‘Beauty is still really important in 2020. During lockdown a lot of people started to experiment, creating cool looks at home. Also, due to having to wear a face mask, people are taking more care on their beauty regimes and investing in good creams, oils and face products to balance the skin.’

The big beauty trend in 2021 will be…

‘Of course it’s more going on eye make-up , eyeliners , crazy eyeshadows. For me, personally, I think there’s going to be a lot of metallic looks.’

The beauty trend that won’t make it to 2021 is…

‘I would have to say contouring and heavy foundations. Light weight foundations and natural skin for 2021! 

In 2021 I’ll be wearing…

‘A good face cream mixed with face oils.’

Latisha Chong, Hairstylist

What I’ve learnt about beauty in 2020 is…

‘In 2020 I’ve learnt that beauty is controversial. It isn’t a linear idea that encompasses one aesthetic judgment, whether subjective or objective. I feel like we should let others express beauty through their own lens without dictating what beauty is because of our biases.’

The big beauty trend in 2021 will be…

‘I cannot conclusively predict what trends will come forth due to the pandemic. However, I hope retro glamour re-emerges.’

The beauty trend that won’t make it to 2021 is…

‘The Snuffleupagus eyelashes. It’s really distracting because it casts unwanted shadows and messes up your selfies. I really hope it stays in 2020.’

In 2021 I’ll be wearing…

‘Brands that cater to my curvaceous figure and a Telfar bag aka The Bushwick Birkin as an accessory.’

Masks take fashion world amid coronavirus storm – Lifestyle

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the fashion industry, putting face masks front and center in the global spotlight.

Whereas the pre-coronavirus days saw them primarily as protective gear for health workers, the pandemic has turned face masks into a fashion statement that reveal the wearer’s personality and interests, even identity.

An online survey Statistics Indonesia (BPS) conducted from Sept. 7 to 14 and involved 90,967 respondents across the archipelago also appears to support this trend, with 92 percent of respondents wearing masks in public. The results of the BPS survey also showed that overall public compliance rated higher in wearing masks than the two other health protocols, hand washing and physical distancing.

The figure seems to prove just how much face masks have become an inseparable part of our daily lives.

Although the latest developments in vaccines may offer a ray of hope, the end of the pandemic is still not in sight, and Indonesian fashion designer Musa Widyatmodjo predicts that face masks will remain a fashion mainstay in 2021.

Musa told that the face mask trend would not completely disappear, and that it would be no surprise to see people continuing to wear them masks even after the pandemic had ended. He added that the trend could be an opportunity for fashion designers to innovate and pour their creativity into designing trendy masks.

“In the past, we made face masks [without considering other features],” said Musa, noting the wide variety of face masks available in the market nowadays.

In addition, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) could actually capitalize on the opportunity presented by the mask trend, he said, but cautioned that SMEs should adhere to recommendations from health experts and government standards.

“We need to learn how to make good and safe face masks,” Musa stressed.

Dozens, if not hundreds, of Indonesian designers and labels have started producing chic face masks over the last eight months, sometimes in collaboration with artists and celebrities, to keep wearers healthy, safe and fashionable.

Jakarta-based A&E Tailors, for instance, started making masks in April. The company stated on its Instagram account (@aetailors) that the primary goal in producing the masks was to create ones that offered protection, yet were still comfortable to wear.

Producing fashionable masks has also been a way to keep businesses afloat during the economic fallout from COVID-19.

Some SME owners, like Haryati Suroso of Batikque Batik in Sleman, Yogyakarta, and Lily Mariasari, the designer-founder of Elemwe Butik in Rawamangun, East Jakarta, have also been producing fashionable face masks ever since they saw their business earnings plunge after the Indonesian outbreak emerged in March.

Haryati spied a light at the end of the tunnel in May, when she received bulk orders for cloth masks from several state institutions as part of a program managed by the Yogyakarta COVID-19 task force.

As for Lily, she said that cloth masks made up around 70 percent of Elemwe’s

Great Outfits in Fashion History: Storm Reid in Sequined Simone Rocha

Storm Reid Euphoria Premiere Simone Rocha Dress 2019

There are perfectly good celebrity style moments, and then there are the looks that really stick with you, the ones you try desperately to recreate at home. In ‘Great Outfits in Fashion History,’ Fashionista editors are revisiting their all-time favorite lewks.

Storm Reid is one of those actors that I always look forward to seeing on the red carpet. She and stylist Jason Bolden have a proven track record of making bold, interesting choices with her fashion, picking statement-making pieces from designers that might not be obvious contenders for the step-and-repeat, whether that’s a shapely tiered gown by Thom Browne or a sculptural mini dress by Iris van Herpen. And given that the 17-year-old already has some very impressive credits under her belt — from headlining a Disney film to appearing on a hit HBO series — there’s only more to look forward to in her career. 

A stand-out for me is her pink sequined Fall 2019 Simone Rocha dress, which she wore to the premiere of “Euphoria” in June 2019. It’s sweet but subversive, with the all-over sequins adding unexpected texture to a sort of deconstructed silhouette, with its asymmetric waistline, slouched sleeves and bra-top detail. On the beauty front, a dramatic winged eye, glossy lip and accessorized braids only added to the incredibly cool feel of this look.  

If you want to attempt to recreate this very, very good red-carpet moment — even if it’s just to celebrate the holidays safely at home — you’ll find all the elements you need in the gallery, below.

Blood and tears as Israeli police storm wedding during lockdown

An Israeli wedding in a settlement outside Jerusalem ended with a bloody fight and sobbing guests after police stormed in to break it up, accusing the family of breaking coronavirus lockdown rules.

Footage of police dragging the bride’s brother out a house, blood streaming down his face as he is escorted past a white cloth table set with flowers, has led to outrage in the government, and an investigation has been opened.

The family, who live in the occupied West Bank settlement of Givat Ze’ev, accused officers of attacking guests at the celebration on Wednesday night, and said they had been respecting lockdown regulations that limit gatherings to 20 people.

Police said an officer was attacked by the woman who owns the house after she was asked to present identification, at which point other guests began throwing “glass oil bottles” at the unit.

Police said they arrested the man with the bloodied face in the video, after he threw oil and then slipped on it. “During the arrest, both an officer and the suspect slipped on the oil and was injured by the broken glass,” the police said in a statement.

A police spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, told the Guardian that the bottles were filled with olive oil. Blurred bodycam footage published by the police showed guests arguing with officers before a scuffle erupted.

The incident led to an outcry from some Israeli politicians, with the interior minister, Aryeh Deri, tweeting: “There is no reason in the world for police to break in with rifles in hand and harm people.” Deri, who like the wedding attendees is a member of the country’s Jewish ultra-Orthodox community, demanded an investigation.

The public security minister, Amir Ohana, who is responsible for the police, promised to look into the matter personally. “They are indeed difficult and unfortunate pictures,” he said of the footage.

Israel’s government imposed a second national lockdown on 18 September after infection rates rose to some of the highest in the world. Some ultra-Orthodox communities have been accused of ignoring the rules, leading at times to confrontations with police.

The national shutdown, which includes settlements in the Palestinian territories, has been extended until Sunday.
