Just checking my watch now and, yep, still in the middle of a global pandemic with inequality and corruption at every turn! Okay that was really nihilistic of me, but now is where I segue this statement about the state of affairs in 2020 to how we reflect what is going on in our lives through our clothes, hair, and – surprise! – makeup.
In today’s post, we’re finishing our predictions of what makeup trends we might see in the near future…
Visions of the future have always had an aspect of technological strides with a dash of individuality. In the early-to-mid 1900s, the future seemed really promising but thanks to cyberpunk and recent history, we’re a biiiit more skeptical of a utopia that includes rolling away from your neighbours.
For when Susan won’t stop being a nosy bitch.
Like some tired, beauty-focused Millenial Nostradamus, I’m throwing my hat into the ring and predicting some mainstream future makeup trends, fitting for late capitalism, societal changes and our never-ending love of silver. My biggest predictions will be able to change our face enough for privacy and against anti-surveillance [I bet you weren’t expecting that kind of talk from a beauty post] by utilising looks we already do, with some exaggerations and tweaks; like changing face shapes, throwbacks, and complete merging of tech… and yes, silver.
