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!

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.
