Working from home will be the norm for the first half of 2021, and we are not complaining. People have adapted to the new normal pretty effectively. And thanks to the screen blurring out skin imperfections to an extent, people swapped their heavy-duty foundations for something lightweight to keep things looking natural on Zoom work calls in 2020
But 2021 is all about shaking things up and wearing more statement looks while working from home. We’ve rounded up the top WFH makeup trends that are going to be huge this year.
01. Minimal graphic liner

Graphic liners are a sure-shot way of getting a comment on your glam game on a screen that is filled with little boxes of people. They read wonderfully on-screen, and all you need to do one is have a steady hand and a trusty-design in your mind. Keep it minimal so that there are fewer chances of messing up!

02. Spidery lashes

Talking about eye makeup looks that demand a second look, fluttery, spidery lashes from the 80s are having a moment right now. They open up your eyes and make you look wide awake for a meeting. Just 3-4 coats of your favourite and watch your lashes transform. They look oh-so-dramatic and eliminate the need for wearing falsies. Need we say more?
03. Peachy pouts
Peachy makeup is a major trend that created a buzz in the latter part of 2020 and has spilt over into 2021. Replace the bold red lip and opt for a subtle peachy tint for your makeup look. Swipe on a bronzer to add some drama and amp up the glam quotient of your look.
BB picks: Lakmé Cushion Matte - Orange Blossom
04. Berry eyes

Berry-toned eyes are back in trend in 2021, and if you love to add a pop of colour to your makeup look, we suggest you pick these fruity pigments! Shimmery, berry-toned eyes have replaced matte and black smokey eyes, and we love this softer, more demure version of a classic eye look.
05. Glossy, bold brows

The trend of ‘soap brows’ is not going anywhere in 2021. To recreate this look, fill in and define your brows using a brow pencil and then brush it out with a spoolie that has been rubbed on a slightly damp, glycerine bathing bar like Pears Pure and Gentle Bathing Bar to give it a faux, laminated finish.
