Love the skin you’re in and keep it simple in 2021!

Following on from a year that has affected us all on so many levels, it’s hard to foresee what life will throw at us next! However, I’m a firm believer 2021 will be on the up, and we can finally have things to look forward to once again!

If you have been feeling a little blue these past few months as many of us have, you’ve probably not felt like putting on makeup at all, or at least not felt the need to whilst working from home. So, it should be music to your ears that a major makeup trend for spring 2021 is minimal makeup, and this goes for your skincare routine too! Hurrah!

‘Natural’ faces commanded the catwalks for 2021, with beautiful skin and pared back eye makeup (if any at all).  What I like about minimal makeup is that it’s easy to achieve with very few or multifunctional products, which are becoming increasingly popular, as we become more aware of the environmental impact of the beauty industry — as well as paying more attention to our spending habits!

If you’re a trendy kinda gal and like to pay homage to the runways, why not go all out with some bold 80’s eyeshadow or some soft smokey, or kohl-rimmed eyes?

There’s always a beauty trend for everyone however, if you’re similar to me and like life a little more on the natural side, then I say less is always best!

In the past few months a number of new skincare brands, which offer minimal, easy-to-understand ranges and products, have come into the spotlight.  It seems what we are all craving is a simplified routine and ultimately an easier life.

Added to this, and the environmental element, is the growing realisation that slathering our skin with a plethora of products isn’t actually very good for us!

My go-to simple and sustainable skincare brand of the moment is the ‘Organic Skincare Collection’ by Hertfordshire based LucyBee. The range is unisex and includes a Reviving Cleansing Cream, AHA Dazzling Tonic and a Radiance-Boosting Face Cream.  All of which are formulated without:

  • Palm Oil (including derivatives of palm oil)
  • Petroleum
  • Silicones
  • Alcohol
  • Formaldehyde
  • PEGs
  • Sulphates
  • Artificial Dyes
  • Soy
  • Gluten
  • Parabens

Many skincare products list palm oil, or its derivatives, in their ingredients but at LucyBee they choose not to use it, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and eco-systems.

All of these products have been formulated with no added fragrance which is perfect for even the most sensitive of skin types.

A full list of product ingredients they use is listed on the website along with their certifications, and to top it off, all the packaging is fully recyclable too!

At this time of year we can normally be found mixing and mingling at festive parties, alas this has been replaced with Zoom get togethers in our PJ’s!  Not quite as fun but perhaps a little more in favour of our health and finances perhaps?

This ‘new norm’ however, should not deter us from looking our very best over the festive period and into the New Year. So, making a nod towards the trends for 2021, follow my step by step tutorial below on how to achieve a perfectly diffused smokey eye.
