You may have pushed your makeup products to the back of the vanity during the lockdown, but we know how you can make good use of them even when you have nowhere to be. Don't let your gorgeous lippies and eyeshadow palettes feel lonely. Instead, with all the extra time on your hands, you can use them to hone your makeup skills, especially if you love makeup and often share your looks on your feed.
Here are 5 Instagram-worthy makeup trends you can practice during the lockdown...
01. ‘Gronze’ complexion

A ‘gronze’ complexion is just the combination of golden and bronze details in the same look. Think of a vintage, shimmery accessory that turns into a fantastic vision under bright lights — yep, that’s what’s cool right now. Gather all of your bronzers and shimmery golden palettes to create this complexion. Dua Lipa’s latest makeup look is a good inspiration to help you get started!
02. Feline flicks

A deconstructed version of the classic cat-eye look, striking and statement flicks created on the inner and outer corners of the eye is how to do this classic makeup look in 2021. It might take a while to create precise flicks that give your eye a snatched look, but we are sure that with the right tools, you will be able to ace it in no time!

Similar to the cat-eye, winged liners will also always be forever in vogue. 2021’s trendy wing is the bold and intensely pigmented fat wing that gives smokey eyes a run for its money. Grab an intense black liner and start drawing. Pro tip: You can clean up the eye look by using a Q-tip dipped in micellar water.

04. On-fleek brows

Bold brows are so in this season and your task is to find the sweet spot between well-defined and OTT. The best way to achieve this is by filling in your brows using a brow definer and then brushing the brows with a spoolie to distribute the product evenly. Lastly, trace the edges of your brows using a concealer and blend it outwards to get on-fleek brows.

Back in the early 2000s, this lip trend was a favourite among pop stars. To recreate this, start by lining your lips with a dark coloured lip liner. Then, sweep on a creamy matte lippy on the lips and slightly dab in the centre using your fingers to create a fading effect.
