Brightly colored mascara
Black mascara is a thing of the past now. It is high time you break the trend and try something new. According to Sadaf Torabi, one of the most well-known makeup artists, colorful mascara will rule in 2021. Sadaf is not only a renowned makeup artist but also a makeup trainer, social media influencer, and beauty blogger. She believes that you can try a variety of colored mascara, such as green, deep-blue, or even bright pink, to accentuate your eyes. You will get a lot of heads turning back to admire your look.

Shades of neon
Minimalistic neon shades in your eyes, with a dab of colorful mascara, can make you look like one of the fairies in fantasy movies. Over the years, people have gotten tired of neon because of its excessive brightness. However, tapping a small neon shade in the corners of your eyes gives a minimalistic look, which makes you look distinctively different from others. Make sure you don’t sweep a neon shadow on your eyelids like your friends. This may result in awkward stares, the last thing you want in 2021.

Floating eyeliner
Sadaf, in one of her makeup tutorial videos on Instagram, mentioned that your eyeliner doesn’t need to follow your eyelash anymore. You can grab your favorite liner color and create lines just where the eyelids end. You can add an eye-shadow underneath, but make sure it has a different color. This will make your eyeliner look as if it is floating. It looks really cool and hippy on youngsters.


Subtle lip stain
You may not endorse a super-bold lip color all the time. At least 2021 may not appreciate that style wholeheartedly. This year is all about breaking the conventional barriers and trying something new. Sadaf suggests that subtle lip stains make you look sexier. It follows the concept of less is more. It gives you a wash of dreamy and soft color even while accentuating your lips. Plus, these lip stains don’t smear and don’t require frequent touchups.

Red smokey eyes
There are fewer things that your other body parts can do than what your eyes do singlehandedly. Looks can kill. And if you believe in that statement, go for red smokey eyes. It’s one of the biggest trends in the makeup industry right now. It makes you look hot right from the moment you finish shadowing your eyes. If you don’t like red, go for navy-blue or forest green.

With so many makeup trends available, you can try one every other month and startle your friends and colleagues with your fashion statements.
