The defining feature of the makeup of the coming season is simplicity and naturalness. Fashionable makeup for this spring and summer is its visual absence, although in reality everything is not so simple. There is a make-up, but it is invisible.
The current trend is nude, that is, the effect of clear skin with a barely noticeable blush and separate accents on the eyes, mouth, cheekbones. This option is ideal for today's time, when everyone is in a hurry and there is little time left for the design of the face. However, nude makeup requires special care, special cosmetics and skill.
Fashionable makeup involves the use of mascara, eye shadow, balms, liners in small quantities. In the spring-summer 2021 season, girls will present their natural beauty, only emphasized by makeup artists.
The trend of achieving beauty without significant effort will delight all fashionistas. There is no need to apply a lot of cosmetics for a long time and carefully, sitting for hours in front of the dressing table.
Makeup artists suggest keeping natural without applying blush, avoiding wide black eyebrows, using a minimum of lipstick. An example of Chloe's delicate look in the photo, Lanvin suggests shading the eyes with mascara to prevent the lashes from sticking to each other. Michael Kors' master Dick Page also maintains a minimalist face.
Refusal of powder
Fashionable makeup is characterized by almost complete refusal of powder or a very small amount of it. Paleness, insecurity, soft oval - these are the features of the image. Givenchy noted that avoiding powdering implies flawless, healthy skin, and this is the main requirement that make-up artists have on models. In everyday life, you still have to matte the skin with powder to achieve a beautiful shade of peach and raspberry.

Penty x Puma took the lightened trend in a different way, giving a special expression to the eyes.
Influence of art style

Giamba expresses feelings with a silver circle in the center of the forehead, Yohji Yamamoto applies white strokes from top to bottom on the sides of the face and on the mouth.

A thin line of flowers runs up the neck and reaches the forehead, dried purple, red petals adorn the temples. Preen also sprinkled burgundy glitter on his lips, adhering to the natural line of the mouth.
The usual soft eye shadows in spring and summer have replaced clear graphic lines, showing the firm hand of makeup artists and their ability to work with the material. The expressiveness of the eyes largely depends on how they are framed, whether the color of the shadows, makeup, decor corresponds to their true color. Make-up artists of famous world fashion designers boldly apply colored stripes, dots, lines to the skin, trying to embody the ideas of the master.
