Eyeliner was a go-to product during the 2010s — celebrities and makeup lovers covered their lids with thick streaks of eyeliner and extended it to their lash lines to define their eyes during this era. It was a marked difference from the minimalism of the previous decade.   


From Instagram-perfect to bushy and thick, eyebrows have seen major changes during the 2010s with the most recent trend being microblading — a tattooing procedure that uses tiny needles to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin.

Contouring is the technique of using darker cream or powder-based products to create dimension and define the facial structure. It is a trend that kicked off during the middle of the decade.

No, it is not baking a cake — it is baking your makeup. Baking your makeup is the process of applying powder under your eyes for a crease-free finish.

A good lash day is a good day. The 2010s were all about bold, eye-catching lashes. Huda Kattan, founder of Huda Beauty, built an empire on the trend.  



The 2010s are ending with a sparkle. Makeup addicts are all about glowing skin, which they attain using the strobing technique. Strobing is applying light, shimmery shades on the higher planes of the face.
