Style The rise of 'skinimalism' in 2021
SAG Awards 2021: Viola Davis, Jason Bateman and other snubs and surprises
Usually the SAG Awards are the first of the major peer groups to hand out statues in the new year, but 2021 is proving to be even more change-inducing than 2020. The 27th Annual SAG Awards were pushed a couple of times, first due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and then when the Grammys decided to have their show on the same night SAG was planning to celebrate. This led to the WGA Awards kicking things off, with PGA following soon after.But, the additional time did not seem to affect SAG ballot outcomes by much.
A new beauty trend known as 'skinimalism' has surfaced as women are embracing a light, dewy makeup look.
Australian skincare expert and nutritionistshed light on the topic and told FEMAIL the 'less is best' concept encourages people to take care of their skin by using a minimal number of products.
The look likely arose due to more hours spent indoors last year wearing no makeup, where people had time to focus on skincare routines and promote a natural glow.
The concept can be applied when applying makeup and skincare products.
What is 'skinimalism'?
Couple makes $150k in 48 HOURS with their game changing gadget
An Australian couple who quit their full-time jobs as lawyers to pursue a beauty brand have made more than $150,000 in 48 hours following an astronomical year of sales throughout 2020. Founders Mia and Ermin Plakalo launched Peppy Co at the start of last year, offering a LED light therapy mask designed to reduce the appearance of acne and leave skin glowing. The unique beauty gadget, priced at $179, harnesses three therapeutic lights for a cleaner complexion after 10 minutes of use per day.
Ms Tuck said the term involves 'reducing the amount of products used and ditching long, complicated skincare routines for quick, multifunctional products and all-in-one treatments'.
This not only saves time and money but places less strain on your pores due to less exposure from overused products.
Skinimalism also removes the confusion and complication often associated with understanding how to layer both makeup and skincare products alike.
According to, the new trend sees 'the end of the caked-on makeup look' and instead turns to an 'effortlessly chic routine' that's 'simple and sustainable'.
Last year global data collected saw a significant increase in searches for 'how to get naturally glowing skin' and a 180 per cent spike in searches for 'natural everyday makeup'.
The ‘Bandit’ And Beyond: Even After 20 Years, One Teaspoon Is As Iconic As Ever
ELLE speaks to One Teaspoon CEO and owner Liz Roberts about the Australian brand's 20-year legacy, making cult denim in 2021 and the label's future.In fact, I would argue that it's the shorts for just about every Australian girl who grew up devouring fashion magazines in the noughties, only to develop a love affair with a certain local label that would go on to become one of the nation's greatest style exports: One Teaspoon.
How to create a skinimalist look
Creating a flawless skinimalist look is rather simple and can be achieved by using less makeup and skincare products.
And with more customers making conscious decisions about how to take care of their skin, a growing list of hybrid skincare makeup products have saturated the beauty market.
Ms Tuck recommends seeking out multifunctional products to simplify your beauty routine and achieve the look - such as using oil cleansers that remove eye makeup and deeply cleanse the skin or moisturising BB creams with SPF.
Bella Hadid Has Spoken: Low-Rise, Von Dutch Jeans Are Back
Model Bella Hadid has made a strong case for the return on low-rise denim, rocking a pair of Von Dutch jeans for her latest outing. Many might think they'd never see the day low-rise jeans returned to the mainstream, but if Bella Hadid's latest look is anything to go by, the early naughties staple is back with a vengeance. And really, it's unsurprising considering everything from Ugg boots to flares have been on heavy rotation in the model's throwback wardrobe of late.
Before purchasing a product, it's best to check the list of ingredients for antioxidants, skin brighteners, hydrating ingredients and tinted SPFs tailored to your needs.
Skinimalism also bids farewell to a 12-step evening skincare routine and instead turns to an alternative, also by using less products.
What skincare and makeup products are recommended?
Ms Tuck suggested using makeup products that nourish, brighten and protect the pores as well as skincare products that cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise.
'Nourish with a blend of skin loving lipids and antioxidants such as Skinstitut face oil and daytime apply an all in one hydrator, antioxidant and SPF,' she said.
'Add a touch of colour to eyes, cheeks and lips with a multi-use make up such as Jane Iredale cheek and lip stain.
'Remove make up and deep cleanse with an oil based cleanser such as Aesop - oilier skin may use an all-in-one skin brightening lactic cleanser, such as Dermalist.'
