While many of us have traded multi-step beauty routines for a more minimalist regimen, the beauty looks from the Spring/Summer 2021 runways may provide all the inspiration we needed to open up our makeup bags again. The Spring/Summer 2021 beauty trends run the gamut from bold '80s shadow and kohl-rimmed eyes to ultra minimal no-makeup makeup and wet-look hair. Whether you're a beauty expert or consider yourself more of a makeup novice, there's a beauty trend for everyone.

Though fashion week looks a bit different as designers opt for digital presentations over elaborate runway shows, this season's beauty looks did not take a back seat. Here, L'OFFICIEL rounds up all the biggest beauty trends you'll be seeing everywhere this spring.

Running late with no time to blow dry your hair? Thankfully, the wet look is one of the easiest Spring/Summer 2021 beauty trends to recreate. For inspiration, look to Acne Studios and Chloé, where models' hair was combed back and gelled for an out-of-the-ocean look.

Gothic Liner

A swipe of kohl eyeliner is all you need to create this runway beauty trend. While a bold line all around the eye will have the most impact, smoked out liner à la Chanel adds just the right amount of gothic flair. 

Sculpted Hair

Sculpted coiffs were all the rage on the Spring/Summer 2021 runways. From intricate finger waves at Valentino and Dries van Noten to severely slicked side parts at Miu Miu, consider spending a few extra minutes in front of the mirror for a style that's sure to turn heads.

'80s Bright

Eighties-inspired makeup is here to stay, as demonstrated by the beauty looks on the Spring/Summer 2021 runways. Whether you go for a bold royal blue eye or diffused fuchsia lip, this trend is all about standing out in a crowd, shoulder pads optional. 

All Natural

Perhaps the easiest Spring/Summer 2021 beauty trend to pull off is hardly a trend at all. Models at Alberta Ferretti, Paco Rabanne, Jacquemus, and Jason Wu walked down the runway in minimal makeup paired with a middle part and natural texture, proving that less is more.
