The shift in the beauty industry has been subtle and not so subtle at the same time. A gradual yet noticeable change as the years go by, beauty in 2020 is taking on a new identity – one that celebrates being yourself, taking care of your mental health and being happy in your unedited skin.
Beauty isn’t set in stone. It isn’t a checklist of the haves and the have nots. Gone are the days where beauty is defined by what you look like, what you wear, how you do your makeup or hair. It’s more than that. It’s about embracing your imperfections, owning your individuality and feeling good while doing it.
We’ve rounded up our Glu tribe to find out what beauty means to them. Keep scrolling to find out what their definition of beauty is.
“Beauty to me is when you look in the mirror and see your truest self look back at you. If that’s barefaced or with pink eyebrows, if you love it, rock it.”
“I think beauty needs to be more of expressing yourself. I feel the most beautiful when I dress up the way that I really, really wanna.”
“I think beauty needs to be more inclusive. There are so many beautiful women across the world that it’s poor to hold one standard of beauty.”
“Beauty to me means to be confident. I feel the most beautiful when I’m around the people I love.”
“I think beauty needs to be louder, a lot louder. Comparison is ugly.”
