It’s that time of year to pull out your best sundresses and most dramatic makeup looks, whether you’re getting vaccinated and going back out into the real world or staying home and going to virtual parties. We’ve seen a few looks on people’s Instagram feeds that are getting a lot of attention, and we can’t wait to try them out for ourselves. Try out some of these 11 easy-to-do makeup trends that will be popular in 2022.
#11 Glowing looks
If you don’t want to go to the beach because it’s too crowded or you’re afraid of getting skin cancer, you can get that dazzling look with illuminating powder. Instead of bronzer, people now use a powder that looks clear and creamy and can make the cheekbones stand out. Think of illuminating sticks or pens as the highlighter of today. They could also be a good alternative.
#10 Glossy lips
Right now, glossy is popular and matte isn’t. This style reminds us of when we were teenagers and had at least 10 different colors of lip gloss. You could use a purple or pastel gloss, but even a clear gloss can make a natural look stand out like never before.
#9 Smoky eyes
This smoky and daring look is great for parties, in person or online, at any time of the year. If the rest of your face isn’t made up, a smoky eye can make you look classy, rock ‘n’ roll, or simple. Makeup artists say that for a more rocker look, you should use taupe, bronze, or mauve eyeliner instead of black. Another color that looks great with smoky looks is gray.
#8 The graphic liner looks great
Musicians like Doja Cat and celebrities all over the world are trying out looks that include a bright arch of neon eyeliner at the crease of your upper eyelid, right above the brow. This is called a “floating liner,” and it looks great with an underlined brow to pull everything together.
#7 Lifted the eyebrows and shaped them
Big eyebrows are still popular, so channel your inner Brooke Shields. Use a clean mascara wand or brow gel to open up your eyes and make yourself look like a fierce high fashion model, even if makeup isn’t your thing or you just want to make your brows stand out. This will work whether or not you want to make your eyebrows look dramatic.
#6 Matte eyeshadow that is bright
If Tracee Ellis Ross wears it, we have to have it. This style works well in warm weather and can be worn with. Deeper and more romantic neon colors or tones. On the other hand, we recommend using light pastels and neons, like the matte pink look that Tracee Ellis Ross wore on her Instagram account. For the more girly women out there, there is also the option of using bold eye shadow in glittery tones.

#5 No-makeup makeup
Even though some of us are more excited than ever to put on some makeup after COVID, it may be scary to jump back into the world of looks and beauty at first. Let’s discuss it. If you feel this way, you could try a nude look that doesn’t really involve being naked. We suggest using a soft contour, a light lip balm or gloss, and carefully applied highlighter or illuminators to bring out the eyes and facial angles.
#4 The white liner
If you wear black liner in the summer, it might look like it’s too heavy. Then why not use a white liner to bring some light to the situation? You can also mix white and black liner to create a unique and expressive style. You can also mix all-white with more muted colors like pistachio baby blues and tans. Both of these colors are on trend for summer 2022 and remind people of 1990s makeup styles.
#3 Rosy cheeks
This style is being done in a simpler way for 2022. Instead of putting blush on our lips or eyes, we’re going for a flushed look. The best way to do this is with a cream blush that isn’t too bright and has a little bit of sparkle in it. Use your fingers or a brush to rub the apples of your cheeks, then move up and outward.
#2 Eyes like cats and a lip the color of a peach
It’s possible that Selena Gomez wearing this outfit is what made it so popular on the internet, but almost anyone can pull off this look. Simple, but cute, and great for days when you don’t feel like putting on a lot of makeup but still want to look great.
#1 Poolside eyes
This summer, use blue and green eyeshadow and eyeliner to make your eyes look as fresh as possible. These two warm-weather colors can be used in any kind of eye makeup look, from soft pastels to more dramatic ocean blues. Powdered looks are great, but we recommend using a creamy eyeshadow stick because it lets you apply the shadow more precisely and blends better than other options. The powdered look is great.
