The year 2020 was undoubtedly an eye-opening experience. It took a significant amount of time to adjust to the new normal; the upside-down work-from-home lifestyle coupled with remote learning expectations was exhausting. It's no surprise that beauty trends fell by the wayside as we collectively struggled to acclimate to our surroundings. If we're staying in, there's no need for a complicated morning makeup routine.
As the cosmetic market experienced a downward shift, many embraced their natural beauty, wearing less makeup while staying at home, and allowing their skin to breathe. Rejuvenation took center spotlight; beauty products and cosmetics that provided costumers a chance to feel good, confident, and healthy were top-sellers this year. Enjoy a roundup of OOLA's favorite beauty brands from 2020.
