With spring finally in bloom, it’s the perfect time to give your makeup bag a refresh. It’s out with the old and in with the new. For spring/summer 2022, the makeup trends are all about putting your skin first and not being afraid to make a statement with your makeup.
We’re sharing the makeup trends that you want to try for spring and summer 2022. Inspired by the best of TikTok beauty trends, this list is everything you need to know before going on your next makeup shopping trip.
If there’s one trend that unites both fashion and beauty this season, it’s glitter. Don’t be afraid to incorporate a touch of glitter to every makeup look. Whether it’s a touch of glitter on your eyes or a shimmer lip gloss, this trend is one we’ll be rocking all spring and summer.
One product that went viral on TikTok this year is the Dior Lip Glow – and several more affordable dupes. This makeup trend is one of the easiest to incorporates into your summer look and is effortlessly glamorous. Add a clear lipgloss to your makeup bag or use a lip tint as your go-to colour.
Texture is one of the biggest makeup trends right now. There’s something for everyone – whether you’re a fan of gloss, sparkle, or a chalky look. The key to recreating this makeup trend is to choose one aspect of your look to make a statement. This trick helps to balance out your look and give you a ‘wow’ factor without going too far out of your comfort zone.
If you want to have fun with your makeup look without changing too much of your look, grab a colourful eyeliner. You don’t have to experiment with an intricate shape or go too extreme. Keep it simple with a winged look and let the colour pop for itself. Jewel tones are one of our favourites for spring/summer 2022.
One of the biggest trends for spring/summer 2022 is blush. It’s time to invest in a cream or liquid blush that will give your skin the ‘face-lifting flush’ effect. Blush is an easy way to add warmth to your face and give you a dewy glow. If you want to keep your look natural, choose a blush that is only two or three shades darker than the natural flush of your cheeks.
For spring/summer 2022, it’s all about the smoky eye. This classic makeup trend is making a return as we finally get to experience a ‘normal’ summer post-pandemic. You can go as over-the-top as you want. Whatever smoky eye look you choose, take it to the next level by curling your lashes and using a lengthening mascara.
Spring/summer 2022 continues the ‘skincare first’ obsession that became popular on TikTok. Before you can refresh your makeup routine, you need to nail your skincare. Start every makeup look with a hydrating serum or moisturizer to give you a flawless base to help your foundation go on seamlessly. A hydrating primer will give your skin a dewy glow.
If you’re giving your makeup bag a refresh, look out for earth tone shades that are inspired by the height of ‘70s party-girl glam. You can incorporate these colours into every aspect of your routine, from matte lipsticks to bright sunshine-inspired eyeshadows. Look out for classic shades like amber and caramel to add a subtle ‘70s-inspired look to your makeup.
When a show goes viral like Euphoria, it’s no surprise when it starts setting makeup trends. You can thank TikTok for making the show’s iconic makeup looks go viral. With the roaring ‘20s 2.0 just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to look to Euphoria for some makeup inspiration. Take your summer festival look to the next level with chic crystals as part of your eye makeup. It’s an easy way for you to elevate any makeup look and guarantee yourself a spot on the best-dressed list.
Even with beauty trends getting more extravagant, minimalist skin is still all the range. You want to invest in a lightweight foundation that only conceals what it needs to. This makeup trend is perfect for spring and summer as it gives your skin a chance to breathe as the temperatures start to rise.
