5 Beauty Trends to Leave in the Past

By Macy Nossaman

Anyone else feel like you’re constantly playing catch-up with trends? It’s a full-time job to find the right products, learn how to use them and then make sure all your Insta followers know you’re totally in touch. Well my fellow hermits, you’re in luck — I’m going to tell you the five trends that you don’t need to waste your time with. These trends are taking their place in the archives and we are leaving them behind in 2020.

Now friends, I want to preface this list with a disclaimer, everyone has their own style. This is just a fun list of trends I feel can be left behind, but you do you! 

  1. Over-lining lips
    • Sorry Kylie Jenner, but the over-lined, matte lip is dying with 2020. This year, it’s all about plump lips with a balmy, glossy, natural look. Clear gloss is an easy (and cheap) way to get in on this trend. The matte lip craze turned all of our lips into the Sahara so quickly – I for one am excited about this pivot in lip care. Hopefully we can show off our lips, sans mask, in the future!
  1. Defined brows
    • Middle school me is wishing I would have known about this a lot sooner… we are all about the natural brow now! Instead of tweezing them to nothingness and using a pencil to draw them back on, beautiful, natural brows are stepping into the spotlight! Full, feathery brows are in this year. So set the tweezers down, let those babies grow out, and try a brow gel to comb your brows into place. This Anastasia brow wax is quickly gaining a cult following!
  1. Contour and heavy face makeup
    • Have you heard of “Skinimalism”? The term was made popular by Pinterest and is here to stay. People are wearing less makeup than ever before and instead opting for natural beauty and skin health. So take that Ulta Beauty budget and use it on skin care instead of foundation. You’ll be glowing and it’ll just be your skin – no powder necessary! If you’re really looking to overachieve, you can even take up Facial Yoga! (Even more ways to incorporate yoga into your life!)

Not to beat a dead horse, but I had to at least mention these last two:

  1. Skin-tight clothing
    • And yes, before you ask, that includes skinny jeans. I personally won’t be giving them up completely, because we all have an emotional support jegging that lives in our bottom drawer… just in case. This is another trend that Gen Z is pushing out, and I get it! We’re all about comfort and functionality in 2021. Try a mom jean, boyfriend cut, or even a flared jean for a more 2021 look.
  1. The Side Part
    • Gen Z is making it very clear… the middle part is in. This trend was famous on Tik Tok, and has the entire generation putting Millennials and Gen X on blast for their side parts. Is it harsh? Maybe. But, there is something to be said for the symmetry that a middle part gives you. Try it on for a day, style it up nice, and see if you feel the energy that a middle part inflicts. But hey, if you hate it, we won’t tell the Gen Z-ers.


What trends are you ready to leave behind in 2020, and what are you most interested in for 2021. We’d love to know! Sound off in the comments!

About Kirk: 

Kirk was working 80-hour weeks and wearing his shoulders as earrings when he found yoga in 2005. Forever the competitive athlete, he loved the physicality of yoga. When the spiritual and philosophical side of yoga were exposed to him, Kirk was hooked. Yoga provided him with what other activities couldn’t -- the ability to foster the benefits of practice both on and off of the mat. Yoga was something that Kirk could bring into all aspects of his life. 

Kirk knows that yoga can be intimidating, so he crafts a class that is playful and inviting, while still being challenging and safe. His creatively planned classes build strength and flexibility in your body and mind while establishing clarity, giving you more confidence to overcome obstacles in your life, and keeping you injury-free. His classes are themed with a message that is relatable and will inspire you to take it with you off your mat. Kirk has been teaching yoga since 2008 and lead his first teacher training in 2012. Where Kirk truly shines is in coaching, developing and bringing out the best in others.  

Kirk enjoys traveling (40+ countries to date!), snowboarding, and cherishes time with his wife and two daughters. 

About Christen: 

Christen Bakken’s yoga journey began in 1998 in a Bikram studio that provided a safe and secure place to practice. She saw the yoga mat as a place to remember her purpose and a place to play. As she continued her studies and began her journey to teaching in 2006, Christen infused yoga classes with devotion and the yoga mat became a place of personal transformation and healing. Her classes are filled with laughter, song, sweat, and usually heart openers. In 2013, Christen began training yoga teachers. This is the place where she finds the most joy - in community with folks looking to grow and be of greater service in their homes, on their mats, and in the world. Over the years, she has led trainings in Denver, the Midwest, Florida, and now abroad. She has trained in continuing education modules, 200-hour, 300-hour, and 500-hour programs. Beyond the mat, Christen is a passionate adventure seeker - she loves to bike, snowboard, and spend time with her husband and pups. She sees each day as a blessing and hopes to remind all who interact with her of this truth.
