Trending Makeup Looks for 2022
It is officially the start of the wedding season and everyone is excited to look their best. But it can be an extremely confusing time for brides when it comes to deciding on the look for their most special day owing to the numerous make-up trends ruling the season.
In the past two years, people have been having closed weddings and haven’t been giving much importance to makeup. But this year’s makeup trends are here to help you beat the pandemic blues. In 2022, we probably should expect a slew of new beauty trends. You can switch up your face makeup, eye makeup and lip makeup with these makeup trends. Let’s learn more about a few of these trending makeup looks and learn a new makeup style. We cover everything from bridal makeup looks to the makeup trends for the big day.
What’s New in Makeup Looks in 2022?
Minimalistic Glass Look
Since 2022 will once again be the year of intimate weddings, more and more brides will choose a minimal makeup style. Gone are the days of using heavy shiny makeup. The new wedding makeup looks for this year is a flawless base, shimmering eye makeup with plenty of mascara, and pink lips as the final touch. This makeup trend appears to be gaining popularity among brides, therefore we anticipate that it will be one of the biggest wedding look trends in 2022.
Fresh Dewy Look
Brides in 2022 will want to enjoy their weddings to the fullest and opt for fewer functions that last a long time. And so these functions necessitate a dewy, fresh makeup look. The primary secret to that dewy fresh skin look is the use of a primer. This look is the epitome of elegant and classy and is best for creating soft focus and not creating extra shine that may give flashbacks in pictures. The dewy look makes the skin look prepped making the face look fresh and glowy within.
Bold Eyes, Red Lips
Traditional bronze smokey eye shadow, kohl-lined eyes, fake lashes and deep red lips are iconic wedding makeup looks. Metallic bronze eye shadows are flattering on all Indian skin tones and complement embroidered lehengas. The combination of kohl with fake lashes helps define your eyes and also differentiate your everyday makeup from your bridal one. Red lips are still a popular choice among brides and are a must-have for any bridal wardrobe. To get that bold yet subtle look, make sure you go for soft eye makeup to make it look even. Also, do not wear heavy jewellery if you have heavy makeup.
Smokey Eyes and Nude Lips
Brides who like to experiment will adore the dramatic smokey make-up style, which combines contemporary and traditional. Dark smokey makeup, deeply lined eyes, and cheek-coloured contours on the cheeks and collar bones. To make sure the deep smokey eyes stand out, tweak the blush and lip colour. "Make the focus on your eyes," our experts advised, "and keep your lips soft, soothing, and matte."
Pastel Smokey Eyes
The pastel smokey eye is a softer take on the classic smokey eye for brides that want simplicity. With pastel shades of pink, baby blue and peach, you cannot go wrong with the smokey look. This subtle wedding makeup look will have soothing pastel hues on your eyes finished off with dramatic smokey eye makeup paired with a darker shade of lips to balance the tone of the overall look. Pair it with fake lashes, to make it look heavier and bolder.
What’s Out in 2022?
- Dehydrating, overly matte makeup styles and overfilled brows are out.
- Harsh contouring and too much highlighter are no longer in trend.
- Heavy, cakey base makeup would give way to natural, dewy looks.
- Excessive use of chunky highlighters, namely powder highlighters, which don't appear well in professional photos because it emphasises skin structure is no longer in.
- No more overdoing your makeup and no more shiny shimmering palettes.
Keeping up with the trend
Every year, make-up trends shift, and this year's focus is on glamour and elegance. 2022’s beauty trend motto is ‘less is more’ and minimalism is winning. In 2022, the bridal season will be more extravagant than in the last two years. From brides who look radiant to the ones who have a smile on their faces, happy brides will make the prettiest brides every season. That is the trend that will always win! With the entire face of the beauty industry changing, it is also a good choice to switch to cleaner and safer products that will benefit you and the environment.
