Y'all were into glass skin in 2019, and it's to move on to another trend that is perfect for 2021's low-key, real-girl aesthetic. Meet "transparent makeup" or skin minimalism, the next obsession that's about to sweep the world. This makeup style has a less-is-more approach and it's all for normalizing skin texture! Unlike glass skin that almost compels us to try all skin-perfect skincare and makeup products, transparent makeup embraces your natural and current skin condition.

What does "transparent makeup" mean?

It's about letting your natural skin texture peek through the makeup, aka using products that create a second-skin finish. Pores, scars, and skin texture are okay to be seen. As for discoloration and zits, they are all simply color-corrected to even out the pigmentation.

So, how do I get the "transparent makeup" or "skin minimalist" look?

You would need color-correcting concealers to cancel out any redness and pigmentation. To create a natural-looking finish, a skin tint, tinted moisturizer or sunscreen, or a cushion compact can serve as lightweight bases. You can also just skip all of these steps by dusting face powder on your skin. (YES, just like what we did when we were younger and weren't influenced by social media trends!)

Since the focus is on the skin, the rest of the makeup is low-key. The eyebrows are softly defined, and the eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick are in neutral shades.
