2020 was the most happening year for so many of us, it literally felt like a roller-coaster ride that never really came to a halt. However, we have entered 2021 now and are hoping for things to get back to normal. 2020 made some serious changes to several aspects of our lives, aside from the increased emphasis on hygiene and sanitization, our beauty routines also got evolved in the process. The previous year was game-changing in regards to our beauty routines. While most of us got used to flaunting our skin sans makeup and embracing the flaws, some switched to sustainable beauty products, and then there were some who freed themselves of the notion of looking perfect all the time.
Aside from making all these intentional and unintentional changes to our beauty routines, we made our own beauty rules without letting the fear of judgment come in the way. We should embark on this journey together, which is why we decided to share with you some beauty rules that should be left behind in 2020.
Dark lipsticks are for night
As much as we would like to go with this notion, it just doesn’t feel right. While light shades of lipstick are more suitable for day time, it doesn’t mean you cannot wear a dark shade of lipstick during day time. Just because you see everyone following the same belief, it doesn’t mean you have to be a part of it, you can choose to ignore it and do what you fancy. For instance, if you prefer wearing dark lipsticks over nude lipsticks, then you should wear a dark shade of lipstick, no matter the time or place.
Bangs aren’t for curly hair
This is yet another bizarre beauty rule that needs to be addressed. Bangs look as stunning and beautiful on curly hair as they look on straight hair. There’s no such rule when it comes to bangs, anyone can get bangs regardless of their hair type. If you still don’t feel confident about it, then you should take inspiration from curly-haired celebrities like Selena Gomez, Zendaya, and Taylor Swift. If you want to get bangs, get them, don’t seek anyone’s approval.
Glitter makeup isn’t for an everyday look
A hint of glitter in your makeup wouldn’t hurt anyone, it is probably one of the easiest ways to spruce up your makeup look and make it look more stunning. Reserving glitter makeup looks for special events or occasions is just a bizarre thing to do. You don’t have to go overboard with glitter for your everyday makeup looks like the way you do for special events like full-blown glitter eyes or lips. There are so many gorgeous ways to incorporate glitter in your everyday makeup routine, highlighting the inner corner of your eyes or wearing a glitter eyeliner is a pretty simple yet stunning way to wear glitter every day.
Perfectly plucked and shaped brows
It’s high time we let go of the notion that our brows should be perfectly shaped and plucked all the time. Being comfortable in your own skin and embracing things you have been blessed with should definitely be on your resolution list this year. You need to get comfortable with the idea of having bushy and overgrown brows. And if you still feel a bit underconfident, then you always have your eyebrow products to rely on.
Tons of skincare products is equivalent to great skin
Owning tons of skincare products isn’t the key to having great skin; it is nothing but a misconception. You don’t need to own multiple skincare products to achieve healthy and glowing skin, simply following a basic skincare routine and using products based on your skin type will do the trick.
