The year 2021 is moving leaps and bounds away from the over styled, clumpy mascara of the early 2000s. The hours of searching for the perfect mascara that stays put and looks natural are over, so just go ahead and throw it out. This year is all about eyelash extensions that nail the natural feel and highlight the windows to your soul in fun ways. Here are the top trends we’re seeing on celebs and Instagram.
Sky High Flutterbys
Long and luxurious lashes have always been coveted, and we are still seeing this trend as a solid choice. Like leather and jeans, long, sky high lashes are sure to always be in fashion. Keep them a soft brown or go with a deep, dark shade, but always give them a curvy upturn. Sky high lashes are the perfect look to throw flirty flutters at that special someone.
You may have heard about colored mascara this year, but colored lashes are the easy way to make this look last. Celebrities like Margot Robbie and Halsey have been seen sporting playful colored lashes. It’s a fun way to mix up your styles and get extra creative with outfits and accessories in matching tones. Or, you can add colored eyeshadow and eyeliner so your eyes are perfectly framed with vibrant shades.
Textured, wispy lashes are a versatile style that suits most face shapes. You can wear them every day of the week, from running errands, to dinner with friends, to the club on Friday night. It’s a relaxed look, but easy to dress up with makeup and jewelry. And with so many of us still stuck at home and attending Zoom meetings for work, wispy lashes are a great, work-appropriate option.
The cat eye look has been around since the times of Cleopatra, and it’s still going strong. It can be hard to make this style spot-on with just eyeliner. Get the purr-fect look started with short, full lashes that flare out towards the end of your eyebrows. Speaking of eyebrows, this is the year for going bold. Complete the cat eye look by emphasizing your eyebrows with brow lamination products.
Yes, you heard that right. Eyelash extensions can include tiny embellishments like rhinestones or glitter. These fancy lash extension styles are perfect for special occasions like weddings and baby showers, or just for making a night out on the town extra fun. You can get embellished lashes that have accents on only a select number of lashes, or accents covering every single lash. Continue the embellished look by adding glitter and other eye-catching details in your finger and toenails. Anything that sparkles and catches the light will turn heads, making sure you’re the center of attention wherever you go.
You may have heard that dewy skin is in right now, and lashes with the wet look are a trendy compliment. The dewy, wet look is meant to let your natural skin texture be the center of attention. Wet look lashes give the appearance that you’ve just washed your face but haven’t fluffed your lashes yet. This style lets your natural beauty shine through, accentuating your best features subtly.
Bottom Lash Extensions
Did you know you can get bottom lash extensions, too? They really help frame your eyes more completely when added to top eyelash extensions and help give your lashes a more natural look. They’re all the better to give butterfly kisses with!
If you’re new to eyelash extensions, you have got to give them a try! They add length and fullness, lift your lashes, and they’re an attention grabber for sure. Plus, you don’t have to worry about applying and removing mascara every day. This is the perfect way to treat yourself and step out of your comfort zone. Find the right style for you and have the perfect lashes every day without having to worry about applying eye makeup!
