The 2021 Makeup Trends You're About to See Everywhere

After a year with beauty on most people's back burner, predicting which makeup trends will take the stage in 2021 is no easy task. "It's kind of hard to say with makeup trends—they're so unpredictable," says Jackie Aina, a Nigerian-American beauty content creator, activist, and social media sensation. "I think we could go either way. People could be so comfortable and used to where we are now and keep moving forward in the 'less is more' lane. Or, there could be a resurgence in doing full heavy glam."

But while both options are on the table—and you can always choose your own makeup adventure on any given day—there are some predictions from the pros who keep their finger on the industry's pulse. Below, we got the 2021 makeup trend scoop from Aina, makeup mogul and Artist Couture founder Angel Merino, and Fenty Beauty global makeup artist Hector Espinal.
