"No makeup" makeup
Followed by the great set of skincare trends that promote the natural look and appearance of the skin comes the trend of "no makeup" makeup. These are the type of easy and effortless makeup looks that are great for everyone. They can surely become a statement look, especially with the accent put on dewy faces that will look natural. The barely-there makeup look is the inspiration behind this trend, flaunting the natural glow of the skin.
Embracing the imperfections, fine lines, freckles, wrinkles, and everything else that comes with the natural look of the skin is what this trend is all about. It is closely connected to the majority of the new skincare trends for 2022, proving once again that skin and its good look and health come in the first place and with the highest importance in beauty trends. The accent remains on the natural look of the skin. From a beautifying point of view, the addition of the nourishing illuminating primers and just a touch of gloss will enhance and accent its beauty.
When the cheeks look radiant and colorful, then, the entire face gets another appearance. This year, the trend that focuses on the cheeks is the glowy cheeks.

The entire approach consists of putting the blush on both the cheeks and temples. The more dominant the color is, the better the effect will be. It will deliver a fresh and new way of welcoming the warmer days and flaunting a new makeup look.
Matte '90s makeup
The '90s-inspired makeup is continuing its popularity and dominance in 2022 too. It does not focus on only one part of the face but caters to the entire one. The main detail of this trend is the matte finish, which becomes a statement look. To achieve this look, focus on the matte eyeshadows, the matte lipstick, and the matte skin. It is the best way to channel the '90s era makeup looks. However, for a fresh input of 2022, this trend suggests flaunting the diffused wing, the brushed-up brows, and a subtle hint of shimmer on the eyes.
The highly anticipated metallic eyes trend is making its comeback on the makeup scene. It is the trend that brings back the desire of doing a full glam for a night out, something that all have been missing. The secret of the best looks lies in the rich metallic colors and different textures. All colors are in, especially the silvery tones that have an icy effect.
The grunge and the goth appearance and the makeup choice will continue to dominate through 2022 too. The one makeup product that is in the focus of this trend is the heavy liner look. This is a trend that is reinventing the application and the look of the eyeliner, strongly suggesting that it is more than enough as a go-to style. The heavy liner, the bare skin, and nothing else is the look that will be seen among the braver and bolder makeup lovers.
Brows are an important and unavoidable part of the regular makeup routine, and as such, there are followed by trends that complete one makeup routine. Just like with everything else, the accent on the brows remains to be their natural look, especially a more natural take on the arches. Doing this look can easily present the brows in the form of full or fluffy brows. With just brow pencils and brow gel, you will easily achieve a great natural brow look.
The biggest lip trend for the beauty 2022 season is the bold lip. Highly desired, the lips will be the centerpiece of the makeup look, and that is very expected. Hidden under the face masks for a long time, the lips this season will be in the focus, in all amazing and strong colors that flatter the skin tone. All the bold lip colors are allowed. Furthermore, they can be perfectly paired with a strong and bold eyeshadow for an appealing and attractive look.
The lip gloss and the glossy lips are having a major comeback. The gloss was out of the makeup scene for quite a long time, letting the matte lip rule. However, this beauty season puts gloss as a highly demanded lip product. The power of the gloss cannot be underestimated, since the volume and the heaviness of the gloss are the perfect makeup upgrade to the lipstick routine. It is another trend that was huge in the ‘90s and the options are pretty varied. Whether it is a transparent gloss, or a colored one, the new and fresh look will give your entire complexion an exciting vibe.
No matter the season, 2022 is all about colorful neons. Vibrant and bright, the neons instantly bring a more positive and happier attitude. If you are willing to add some color but don’t want to overdo it with makeup, going with neon nails is an excellent and trendy option. As for the color choice, all of the neons are in. You can also spice up your fashion outfit with bright and popping nails. Neon colors are considered as an instant mood lifter, so this spring, start with bright neon green and pink, and progress to electric blue and orange for the summer.
Shades of Nude
Nude nails remain to be popular and you can never go wrong with them. They deliver a polished, classic, elegant, and sophisticated appearance of the nails. It is a calmer and a more toned-down option than the neons. The classic nudes and light pinks are an option that is always a hit.
Mid-length bob haircuts
Bob is one of the hairstyles that is never out of fashion. Over the last few years, the bob has become a choice for many. Especially considering the different styling options. 2022 predicts that this haircut will be the most demanded one. The reason behind that is the chic and polished look it delivers. The mid-length bob is an excellent choice for those who want something chic and trendy.
An easy way to update a hairstyle and look is to add some bangs. The blunt bangs, the side bangs, the feather bangs – all and in, and they all look great depending on your face shape and hairstyle. They might need some time to grow out if you get bored with them, but even then, you will constantly have a new look.
With these beauty trends, you will be more than prepared to flaunt the best looks through the entire 2022.
