Are you looking to change up your beauty game or mix up your makeup routine? Or, maybe you work in the beauty industry and you’re hoping to stay ahead of your competition?
Either way, it’s important to know about the biggest beauty trends of 2020 so you can get yourself ready for 2021.
Check out this guide to learn about the top beauty industry trends of 2020.
1. Eye Masks
When we say eye masks, we’re not talking about the mask you put over your eyes to help you fall asleep on a flight.
The eye masks we’re talking about are for your skin- essentially, they’re face masks just for your eyes. You apply an eye mask right below each eye to help with dark circles and wrinkles.
Most of the masks you find on the market come in individual packets. All you need to do is peel the mask off the sticker, place it under your eye, wait 10 to 15 minutes, and then peel the mask off your face to reveal brighter, healthier-looking skin.
2. Multi-Colored Eye Makeup
Can’t decide what color of makeup you want to use for your eyes?
Well, in 2020, you don’t need to, as multi-colored makeup is the name of the game. In 2020, you’ll see more and more people layering several contrasting hues onto their eyes.
Before you start going crazy with color, don’t forget to apply some eyeshadow primer. This will ensure that each layer goes on smoothly and that your look stays in place.
3. Big Hair Accessories
Time to throw out your plain old black hair ties and make room for some big hair accessories.
In 2020, you can expect to see more wide headbands, oversized barrettes, and other large hair accessories. While there are all kinds of ways to wear oversized barrettes, the trendiest way is to clip one or two barrettes to one side of your hair.
If you’re looking for a way to wear your barrette that isn’t so loud, you can also clip it back into a loose bun.
4. Micro-Needling Tools
If you’re on the hunt for an affordable, at-home skincare solution, then micro-needling tools might be for you.
Micro-needling is typically an in-office procedure that involves an esthetician puncturing your skin with a pen made of tiny, sterile needles. While this sounds like an unpleasant experience, it’s actually not that painful and it can do wonders for your skin.
Micro-needling helps boost collagen production, reduce hyperpigmentation and acne scarring, and prevent wrinkles. But, in-office micro-needling can be quite expensive, costing upwards of $300 per session.
Those looking for a more affordable solution are turning to at-home micro-needling tools in 2020. While the at-home tools aren’t as effective as in-office treatments, you can still reap many of the same benefits.
5. Eye Jewelry
When we say eye jewelry, we’re not simply talking about an eyebrow piercing.
Wearing gemstones and rhinestones around the eyes is the eye jewelry that’s popular in 2020. This trend first started with the hit TV show Euphoria, and it’s blown up ever since. In fact, in some runway shows, you can even see models wearing real crystals on their eyes.
6. The Shag Haircut
The shag was one of the most popular haircuts for women in the 70s, and now, it’s making a comeback.
This hairstyle involves various lengths of layers that are typically feathered at the top and sides. The layers make it so your hair falls around the crown, and the hair fringes around the edges.
Celebrities who have rocked the shag haircut in 2020 include Taylor Swift, Zendaya, Camila Cabello, Halle Berry, Natasha Lyonne, and Bella Hadid.
7. Micro French Manicures
From scrunchies to Steve Madden platforms to choker necklaces, the 90s fashion era has already made several comebacks. Now, the 90s are coming back for our nails.
That’s right, French manicures are officially back in style. However, the 2020 version of the French manicure is a bit more sophisticated and a little less prom-like.
What makes the 2020 French manicure different is that it’s painted on your own nail (as opposed to acrylics), and the tips are super thin. Hence, the name, “micro French mani”.
While this may sound like something that Edward Cullen would do, it’s actually one of the hottest hair coloring techniques of 2020.
Twilight-ing involves adding gold dimension to brunette or dark hair. The style is achieved by adding a few balayage pieces in addition to the foiled baby lights. Brunettes are loving this look because it’s low maintenance and can be carried from season to season.
9. Neon Eyeliner
As we mentioned earlier in the article, multi-color eyeshadow is one of the biggest trends of 2020. But, that’s not the only way people are adding color to their eyes this year.
Neon eyeliner is also becoming more and more popular. Obviously, it requires more than just a quick swipe to pull off this look, so here are some tips for rocking neon eyeliner:
- Start with a clean, primed canvas (eye primer is a must)
- If you’re new to eyeliner, opt for a crayon formula
- Try outlining your dark eyeliner with a neon color for an extra bold look
- Have some angled Q-tips on hand to fix your mistakes
- Don’t be afraid of the smudge tool so you can play around with textures and shapes
With these tips, you’ll be rocking the neon look in no time.
While most of the beauty trends we’ve discussed so far have had to do with hair and makeup, there’s another beauty trend going around that’s more closely related to your health- PCT.
PCT stands for post cycle therapy. If you’re a hardcore weight lifter and you’ve added anabolic steroids to your workout routine, PCT can help you make the most of your lifting routine. PCT involves cycling your steroids on and off so that your body has time to heal.
