Make up SS 2021: nude look
This is the trend that has already emerged in recent seasons with a very particular declination: the monochrome make-up, in the warm shades of earth and brown and with an extremely elegant finish. The skin is opaque but luminous, almost velvet. Forget the glow effect emphasized by brushstrokes of illuminants on the cheekbones and cheekbones: for the spring summer 2021 the result will be more discreet and in the spirit of “less is more”. The protagonist of this beauty look that is the most popular will be the upper part of the face (not covered by the mask) enhanced by illuminants, correctors and products that will emphasize the look. The new minimalism (which should not be interpreted as a renunciation of color or attention to detail, on the contrary) pushes towards the use of multitasking products as a foundation, blush and bronzer able to work on the contours of the face and on the volumes and, at the same time, to pamper the skin without hiding the subjective characteristics.
