Normality is back in our lives after several months, so take a look at this article and take note of all the makeup trends for 2022.
If our TikTok and Instagram feeds are any indication, makeup is undeniably back. (It’s about time, no?) And whether you’re going for all the drama or still feeling no-makeup makeup, this summer definitely has got looks for every vibe with a couple throwbacks, too.
Even though COVID-19 is still a reality, summer 2022 is gearing up to be more normal than the past few years. With festivals and travel back on, it’s the perfect time to debut the looks you’ve been experimenting with all winter long. So, for this summer, it’s time to break out the bright eyeshadows, radiant-finish foundations, and extra glowy highlighters — this summer’s makeup trends are once again extra colourful on the eyes and/or light on the lips.
For those who are already fans of eyeliner, take the look to the next level by upgrading to a graphic cat eye. If eyeshadow is more your speed, skip the sheer finishes and try a touch of bold color on the inner corners of the eyes. As for the rest of your face, flushed cheeks or a sun-kissed glow are always foolproof options.
Keep scrolling for the trends that are key to wear during this summer. Are you ready?
If an eyelid full of orange eyeshadow feels a little overwhelming, try a wash of color like Megan Fox’s, which makeup artist Jenna Kristina matched to her tangerine nails.
Break out your waterproof liner: If celebs like Zoë Kravitz are any indication, the moody 2000s makeup trend is making its way back.
A flash of silver or gold is an ethereal alternative to heavy black liner, as creator Sai De Silva demonstrates here.
Nothing says summer 2022 quite like pairing shades of rave-y brights.
Pop of Pink
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been staring at this picture of Rihanna’s pregnancy announcement since the day it happened. Take a cue from her internet-breaking look by wearing pink all over: pink blush swept high across the cheekbones, pink glossy lips, and even a swipe of pink across the eyes.
“Glazed Donut” Skin
Whether it’s highlighter, skincare, or, well, sweat, a glistening glow has never been more in.
This summer, please, go for a lightened-up lip shade. It definitely goes with everything.
As liquid and cream formulas continue to dominate the blush space, expect to see more blush-forward (yet still natural-looking) makeup.
