Spot anything that you ended up trying this year?

Staying at home awakened a different type of creativity in all of us. We started experimenting with new trends that promised timelessness and ones that are purely for entertainment, just to keep us busy during the quarantine.

Over the past year, beauty trends also kept up with the times and started addressing issues starting with skincare, commonly due to mask-induced acne, and focused on makeup for virtual meetings. Boredom also made us experiment with a bunch of new hairstyles!

Want a quick rundown? Scroll ahead to see 10 beauty trends that boomed in 2021 and might just be here to stay:

10 Most Popular Beauty Trends 2021

1. Milk Tea Hair Color

If there was the infamous dalgona coffee hype during the first few months of 2021, there is also the elegant and low-maintenance milk tea hair color for 2021. It’s a creamy beige color that looks super flattering on any skin color. Some personalities like Sam Pinto and Sue Ramirez have tried this trend as well!

3. Chunky highlights

DIY hair dyes became a hit for those who are fond of experimenting with their hair colors. The most popular for 2020 until now are face-framing money piece highlights that first went viral on TikTok, also seen here on Bella Hadid.

4. Gua-shas and jade rollers

We all miss going out during the quarantine, and we definitely miss the pamper sessions with our favorite spas and beauty clinics. Beauty tools became a home remedy for a much needed spa day to relieve stress. Facial massages with the help of the gua sha and jade rollers also alleviate the tension in your face muscles while depuffing.

5. Antibacterial skincare

Our skincare routine also coped with the new normal. Half of our face is almost always covered by a mask, causing mask-induced acne and irritation due to friction, heat, and our skin being unable to breathe from the material. With that, many brands started launching skincare products that contain antibacterial properties to combat breakouts, redness and irritation.

6. Skinimalism

Being in quarantine and staying at home changed our beauty habits and routine. We've been given a chance to appreciate and embrace our bare faces more, which reflected in our beauty looks. The "no-makeup" makeup look or transparent makeup trend, for one, became huge for its simple and effortless vibe that only requires pretty much taking care of your skin and using minimal makeup essentials like lip tints, blush and mascara.

7. Blush

If there's anything we learned from doing quick looks at home, it's that you can never go wrong with a subtle splash of color on your cheeks for virtual meetings or a quick errand run. A blush can enhance your complexion's overall look, especially one that matches your skin undertone perfectly.

8. Colored eyeliner 

Eyeliners are foolproof for enhancing your peepers, even more so when you play around with different colors! And with our faces almost always half-concealed by a mask, it's exactly how people opted to have their eyes pop this year.

9. DIY nails 

With nail salons being inaccessible for most of the year, people started DIY-ing their manicures with colorful press-on nails, fun printed nail stickers, and renewed takes on classic designs like the French tip. Though nothing beats getting your nails done by pros, it's definitely still a great way to pass the time while getting gorgeous digits in the process.
