Top 5 Beauty Trends of 2022
It's December, which can only mean one thing. It's time to round up the top beauty trends of 2022! From the bold to the barely there, here's our hand-selected collection of this year's leading beauty trends.
1. Bold Blush
The unconventional blush trend has been taking over TikTok. In 2022, more makeup fans traded natural flush colors for bold and bright shades like deep purple or bright orange.
To wear a bold blush look, apply your favorite base makeup, like foundation or tinted moisturizer. Next, use a contour brush to apply your blush to the high points of your cheeks to create a contoured look.
The Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in Fuego Flush by Fenty Beauty is the perfect tangerine shade. If you're not ready to sweep on orange blush, try the Allure Best of Beauty 2022 Winner Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in Faith by Rare Beauty.
2. Face Gems
This was one of the most fun beauty trends of 2022. We've seen these tiny sparkling gems on the brow bone, in the eye contour, and along the cheeks all over social media. This beauty trend's biggest celeb fan is arguably Taylor Swift. She has been rocking face gems all year, from the VMAs to her Anti-Hero and Bejeweled music videos.
Apply small face gems to accentuate your minimal or full glam eye looks. These affordable Face Gems by Half Magic took home a 2022 Allure Best of Beauty Award.
3. The Hailey Bieber Nail
2022 saw plenty of fun nail looks, but one of the top trends was definitely Hailey Bieber's shimmery, sheer, iridescent off-white nails. Her "glazed donut nails" are inspired by one of her favorite treats.

4. Hybrid Products
There's been a massive uptick in makeup products with skincare benefits. Think foundation that helps combat acne, lip gloss infused with hyaluronic acid, and skin-enhancing moisturizes.
Some of the top trending hybrid products in 2022 were the Jones Road Miracle Balm, the Saie Sun Melt Cream-Balm Bronzer, and the Sephora Collection Best Skin Ever Full Coverage Multi-Use Concealer. Combine all three for the perfect, barely-there makeup look with added skin benefits!
5. The Natural Brow
Resist the impulse to try the 90s thin eyebrow revival (trust us on this one) and instead try an easy, natural brow look. Going untamed doesn't mean letting your brows go. Instead, it's about accentuating your facial features with your natural eyebrows.
If you have thin or barely-there brows, try the LiBrow Purified Eyebrow Serum for fuller-looking brows. Complete your au naturale look with the appearance of longer lashes. Add the LiLash Purified Eyelash Serum to your nightly routine to achieve stronger eyelashes.
