The last calendar year has changed a lot about our beauty practices. From co-signing more low-maintenance hair choices to adopting mask-friendly makeup and carrying out more at-home beauty treatments than ever before, we’ve amended every aspect of our hair, makeup, skincare, and nail routines to suit our socially distanced lives. And we don’t know about you, but after being robbed of Hot Girl Summer 2020, we’re feeling the urge to show out this solstice season. That’s why all summer 2021, we’ll be leaning into the most fitting trend that also happens to be so pretty: minimalist makeup.
Now, minimalist makeup might not sound all that exciting, but it can be a lot more fun than its name suggests. Remember when Beyonce had us all shouting “I woke up like this” a few years ago? Well, minimalist makeup brings that notion to life via glowy highlighter, subtly shimmery lids, flushed lips and cheeks, and bushy brows. Can you say swoon?
