From bold blushes to LED masks, these beauty trends will reign supreme in the year 2022
The year 2022 begins with the same chaos that COVID brought all thanks to the new variant. Amidst all the chaos, the beauty industry saw lots of beauty boom as it saw myriad of trends in the year 2021 (remember glittery eyes were all the rage), and no longer primers and highlighters were relied upon for healthy glow. Alternatively, we wanted hardworking actives and hero ingredients to rejuvenate our skin at a deeper level. Serums and cult beauty creams were replaced by active ingredients for more healthier-looking skin.
Now here is the big question! What does the year 2022 have in store for us when it comes to beauty trends? Well, we have curated a list for our readers.
Light, Luminous Bases
Taking complete inspiration from K-beauty, the year 2021 was all about going all out and incorporating multi-step routines and extensive skin procedures for healthier-looking skin. However, Skinimalism is going to reign supreme in the year 2022, with a focus on more of a light luminous base with visible natural textures, a minimal make-up look, and celebrating a healthy complexion. Less is more will be the skin mantra of 2022.
Statement Blush In 2022
Recently TikTok was rampant with influencers sporting purple blush on and looks like it will kind of become a thing this year. So, this year, don’t shy away from bold blushes and lit your face with blushes that are literally over the top. The key is to blend the blush right until the temples for a more modern and romantic look. Whoever thinks making your face lit with a bold blush is bit much is completely wrong. The year 2022 is all about bold blushes.
Slicked Back Hair
Haircare will experience what experts are calling a “skinification,” wherein we put the same focus on our hair and scalp as we have on our skin. Products like scalp serums and scrubs and hair masks will continue to dominate. Slicked back-hair like buns braids and ponies as well as blinged-out hair accessories like monochrome clips will be more trending this year.
Lined Lips For 2022
Remember the 1990’s when it was all about the surge of dark lip liners? Well, it is coming back with full force and will be part of the year 2022. You must have seen celebrities like Ashley Graham and Kylie Jenner sport the dark lip liner look like no other. Here in 2022, we’re loving hues of dark brown to pair with a nude tinted lipstick or gloss and a gentle melt with two fingers will give it a beautiful lewk.
Embrace your natural beauty this year. 2022 is all about barely their foundations and concealers. This year we are bidding goodbye to cakey foundations and choosing a tinted moisturizer. This will make life easier by offering a light touch of coverage for a fresh look. It’s also a way to embrace your natural skin a bit more.
LED masks And Other Skincare Technology
Tech aspect of beauty, LED light masks and microcurrent facial tonic devices are going to be all the rage in the year 2022. Like a plant that needs the sun to grow, LED light tends to target skin concerns on a cellular level. Comes in a different light like the amber light stimulates collagen and red reduces inflammation while blue light kills acne-causing bacteria. The most effective way is to apply the serum and then go under the light for lasting results.
Hermes has recently launched an entire lip collection that’s refillable and durable. This year, consumers will focus on beauty products that are eco-friendly. Ingredients that are ethically sourced, recyclable products, and packaging that is refillable will be prioritized. Ultimately, consumers will be looking for products that give back to the environment rather than just take.
This year beauty enthusiast is going to treat their bodies with beauty oils and body washes with unusual perfume notes, luxe body serums, balms, and much more. Bid goodbye to your body soap and give some extra love to your body too.
Dramatic Eye Liners
Winged eyeliner will never go out of style; it’s the LBD of makeup, like a red lip. But we’ve seen various trends surrounding winged eyeliner over the past few years, ranging from bright colors to the fox eye. Any and all eyeliner will continue in 2022, but we’ll see a rise in dramatic variations, particularly wings that extend much past the eye or wrap around through the crease for a ’60s flare.
