2020 will go down in history as the year we all embraced self care and letting our skin breath again! We all scooped as much skincare as we could get our hands on and hunkered down in front of our desks wearing the most moisturizing of sheet masks.
I have and always will be a skincare junkie so taking care of my skin and indulging it in a variety of products isn’t really a new normal for me. If I’m not wearing makeup I look quite young. Combined with my larger brown eyes I end up looking like a little chibi. I’d much rather wear makeup than go completely bare faced. 2020 though saw many days where I wasn’t in my normal full face of makeup and most people I’ve talked to or know pretty much said, “Screw it! I’m home all day why bother with makeup?”
That makes sense! If you’re home and no one is seeing you why bother with makeup? I took sanctuary in my own collection. Doing my face everyday made me feel normal when I was anxious or paranoid about the pandemic. I felt my best when I was wearing red lipstick while waxing my floors. Sorry but makeup just felt normal to me in the complete and utter chaos we experienced back in April and now more than ever I really take comfort in it.
That doesn’t mean I’m not enjoying all the self care launches lately. I love everyone is really into taking good care of their skin lately. I love that people finally realized that good skin is the first step in makeup looking it’s best! I also love that everyone finally woke up and realized they don’t need a fully contoured face.
So, the fact of the matter is 2020 did not really give us a bunch of makeup trends but it did teach us to take better care of our skin.
However, there is one makeup trend that needs to be buried deep within the surface of the earth never to see the light of day again.
Glitter freaking eyeshadow.
Today MAC launched their Biobrilliant Glitter Eyeshadow Palette and I kid you not I slammed my head on the desk. Please stop. No one wants glitter eyeshadow or at least I don’t want it. I swear if I see one more Colourpop Eyeshadow Palette that’s made up of 30% glitter eyeshadow I may just quit makeup completely and go hide under the bed.
No more glitterrrrrrrr!
I’m tired of glitter!
Just do a nice shimmery eyeshadow stop trying to ruin my vision with your chunky glittery eyeshadows.
Glitter eyeshadow is a trend that just needs to go away and never come back.
Is glitter eyeshadow a trend you want gone or do you have another makeup trend that you want axed in 2021?
