Idk about you, but besides a pandemic-less new year, we’re looking forward to some fresh new simple makeup looks! This will be a key part in how to look pretty.
10 Simple Makeup looks for you
So without further ado, let’s get into the simple makeup looks of 2022 you need to know.
1. Colored Mascara
2022 is all about changing up to simple makeup and going for anything but typical. Coating lashes with bold-colored mascara is an easy way to take your makeup game up a notch. It adds just the right flair to the eyes to make them pop (we promise no clown vibes!), drawing attention to them and breaking necks. When choosing a colored mascara for your eyelashes, go for a bright color that intensifies your eye color and doesn’t dim it down
2. Smoldering eyeliner
Smoldering eyeliner has been a makeup application trick in simple makeup looks for years. It adds contrast and depth to the eyes making them look sultry and defined. To achieve this look, it’s best to use a pencil eyeliner, going for darker shades like black, dark blue, or smokey gray. The next step is to apply a little bit of pressure to line the lash line and use a q-tip, brush, or fingertip to blur sharp lines starting at the corner of your eye for a sexy smoldery look. Pair with a red lip, coat of mascara, and nude palette for a killer look that you can wear from day to night or, add a thin liner with a small brush at the outer corner of your eyes for a smoldery cat eye.
3. Makeup looks for Lash lifts
You’ll notice that your entire face lifts and the look of dark circles disappears. Instead of false lashes that take eyelash glue and patience (who has that?), opt for a lift. Lifts once had a reputation as a bad thing, with many preferring a false lash due to the use of chemicals. Now, thanks to advances to the trend, lifts are safer than ever, helping to achieve a natural makeup look. Accentuate your lashes by adding white liner to the lower lash and red lipstick. You’ll fave a trendy, everyday look that takes minimal eye makeup and just a dusting of eyeshadow.BTW, at-home lash lift kits are a thing, too.
4. Stained lip color
Every loves a simple makeup look, enjoying the light feel and simplicity. So, skip the matte lipstick and go for a stain. A soft colored lip is great look that you can swipe on in seconds. Lip colors are the easiest way to breathe life into skin, giving a pump to your pigment and accentuating your skin tone. When choosing a color, go for a red or pink tone that compliments your features or dark shades like plum for something a little more bold. If you’re going for something natural, go with some nude lips. Pair your stain with a little concealer and a nude bush for a simple yet trendy look that goes well with the rest of your look.
5. Graphic eyeliner
Now, the art of makeup is all about cool graphic liner or blingy rhinestones that play up the eyes for a unique makeup look. Graphic liner is all over social media, with influencers creating daring designs with black and white eyeliner to create beautiful eye makeup. To create this look, create a line at the upper lash line and in the crease, leaving the lid clean or with a bit of nude eyeshadow. Because this is a bold look, leave the rest of the face simple, patting on a bit of lip gloss, brow gel, and highlighter at the outer corner of the eyes for some wing action.
6. Dolphin skin
This new look is likely blowing up your Instagram feed, worn by your favorite celebrities like Kim Kardashian and raved about by Allure magazine. We’re talking about the dolphin skin trend that create a dewy glow that’s perfect for every skin tone. Now is the perfect time for this look, with summer and weddings right around the corner. According to top tutorials, the secret step to this look is a hydrating moisturizer and glossy highlighter without shimmer. The first thing you should do is take a sponge and pat on foundation to blur discoloration and pores on your cheekbones, finishing it off with a light contour and powder blush for a super glossy and easy makeup look.
7. Glossy eyelids and lips
If you’re looking for a cool eye area makeup trend, try out this glossy lip and lid combo. It’s been spotted on the red carpet a few times, worn by A-listers like Gigi Hadid and Rhianna. Getting a glistening eyelid is simple, though you need to use good makeup products to prevent the dreaded crease. To start, dab your favorite primer and sweep a lighter shade onto the eyelid working it up into the crease. Then use a palette with your favorite pigment to add a bit of color. Then, add gloss and voila!
8. Natural makeup
Instead of full face of makeup, fashionistas and influencers are going for a fresh natural makeup look that makes their skin glow. Instead of using makeup makeup, the trick is looking for bb cream, tinted primer, or matte foundation with lots of moisture that matches your skin tone perfectly.
9. Bold eyebrows
Bold brows are a classic look that look good with everything from a simple makeup look to a super-trendy wild cosmetics look that even Beyoncé would commend. If you weren’t born with naturally bold brows, you may want to visit a makeup artist to help you score the best tips on how to achieve a brag-worthy brow. They can work with your brow bone to find the best shape to compliment your features, teaching you how to create it day to day. Once you get the hang of keeping a steady hand, it won’t take you much time to shape your brows, especially in the sparse areas, finishing them off with brow gel and brushing eyelashes with a bit of mascara for a look that’s all about the eyes. In terms of products, Glossier’s brow flick is a great one to tame those brows.
10. Peach lips
If there is one thing you need in your makeup bag collection, it’s a nude lipstick with peach undertones applied with a lip brush. This dramatic makeup jewel hit the scene last year, paired with gold shadow and light contour. While this luscious lips look is great for every tone, those with brown eyes and brown hair rock it best. When rocking a peach lip, highlight the cheeks and inner corner of the eye to create a golden glow that’s perfect for summer.
