5 Makeup Trends That You MUST Try in 2021

Make up artists and gurus are like painters in the way that they can form faces into symmetrical art pieces. Expressing oneself through make up design and color is one of the easiest ways to elevate a look.

Thanks to the HBO original show Euphoria, sparkly and iridescent make up trends have swept the entire nation.

This eye look can be executed with any eyeshadow, pencil or liquid liner. Simply draw a line from the center of your eyelid crease into a triangular shape attaching back to your lash line for this old fashioned cat eye. Vibrant liner colors that match your clothes are always a fun way to achieve a trendy fit.

2. Freckles!

Celebrities and makeup artists all over Youtube are absolutely obsessed with the faux freckle make up look. Several beauty companies both drugstore and Sephora based sell faux freckle tools for simple application. These adorable sun kissed freckles can also be accomplished with a thin eyeshadow brush and light brown tinted cream shadow.

3. Colored Mascara

Traditionally, I only ever thought to use black or brown mascara on my lashes to make my eyes pop. Contrary to that popular belief, using colored mascara depending on your unique eye color can bring out your eyes. Blue mascara for brown eyes helps them pop, burgundy for green, violet for blue and green for hazel eyes.

4. Sparkly Eye Gems

Placing sparkly gems below the brow and above the eyelids is definitely a makeup trend that sparked from the hit drama series "Euphoria". The show inspired the desire for gem eyeshadow looks and all around sparkly dewey skin.

5. Checkerboard Nails

Although nail trends are technically not a type of makeup, it would seem wrong to not include this prominent beauty trend in this list. Checkerboard nails in all colors, but mostly neon green and pink, are an up in coming trend that I have seen influencers and fashionable celebrities do in their daily lives.

I hope some of these makeup trends inspired you to try them with your favorite fits!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review
