After months of isolating in loungewear and forfeiting foundation for face masks, the beauty trend forecast has playful colours, innovative textures and creative designs in store, and no one knows more about that than Glossier‘s European makeup artist, Celia Burton. Ahead, Celia predicts the five groundbreaking makeup trends that are going to dominate l

Her disappearance shocked the nation, and remains one of the most talked about missing person cases in Britain. Sadly, Suzy was never found; she was presumed murdered, and declared legally dead in 1993.
