Stick-on beauty is the latest trend taking social media by storm (and it couldn't be easier to master)

For many among us, stick on face gems are evocative of 90s beauty, with the iconic teardrop rhinestone look reigning supreme, closely followed the faux nose stud. Now, it seems beauty stickers are making a comeback for 2021, although endlessly more sophisticated.

From metallic strips in the shape of a feline-flick that not only eliminate any tedious eyeliner application but also creates an impactful beauty look, to the fun and fresh floral stickers that brighten up the skin while secretly treating the blemishes hidden underneath, to the nail decals that elevate an at-home manicure with fuss-free and always perfect nail art designs in an instant, it’s not exactly hard to understand why beauty stickers are trending on social media.
