As the weather gets warmer, our makeup also gets a major refresh. Summer 2022 is going to be all about flaunting dewy, glowy skin. Think radiant, natural-looking skin finishes, bright blushes, bold brows, glossy lips and statement eye makeup looks.
Keep reading to find out the top makeup trends that are taking over summer and are worth trying this year.
The no-makeup makeup look keeps you looking fresh all day during the summer months. To help you achieve this look, go for a lightweight base. A skin tint, BB or CC cream or dewy foundation are perfect for helping you nail a no-makeup makeup look. If you want to conceal any spots, opt for a concealer for extra coverage instead of a full coverage foundation so your base looks as natural as possible.
It’s all about the eyes this summer. One of the season’s biggest makeup trends is statement eyes. This summer, go for bright, vivid and shimmery colours on your lids.
Barry M, our Haul of Fame of the month, has the perfect eyeshadow palette to help you create an endless number of looks this summer. Their WILDLIFE® Eyeshadow Charity Palette features a mix of matte and shimmery shades that you can mix and match so you can rock a statement eye all summer long.
Besides statement eyes, this summer is also all about bolder brows. Bold, full and fluffy brows aren’t going anywhere. To create bold brows, try Iconic London’s Triple Precision Brow Definer, which is a 3-in-1 brow definer that comes with a spoolie brush to brush your brows, eyebrow pencil to shape and define your brows and a fine-tip pen to create natural-looking hair-like strokes to give you your best brows yet.
Don’t be afraid to go for a heavy blush look as bright cheeks are trending this summer. For a natural and healthy-looking flush, go for cream or liquid blushes this summer as they don’t melt easily, especially when temperatures start soaring, so you can flaunt a natural, glowy flush throughout the season.
Finally, glossy lips will be everywhere this summer. So swap out your matte lipsticks and finish your makeup look with a lip gloss, glossy lip balm or a lipstick with a high-shine finish. If you want to add a bit of colour, simply line your lips with a lip liner and top it off with a lip gloss — the perfect summer lip combo.
