DIY skincare, including homemade face masks you can whip up in your kitchen, were a great trend to get involved in. So it comes as no surprise this is something skincare lovers want to continue. Searches for aloe vera face masks was also up 115%, somaybe this is a DIY face mask we need to learn to make!

Continuing on the trend of simplicity means natural everyday makeup is also going to be popular. Because staying at home and wearing masks when we’re out doesn’t really require anything too fancy. Don’t get us wrong, we love getting glammed up when we can, but right now we’re happy stripping things back to basics.

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
