From fluffy brows to glossy lips — don’t miss these makeup trends

2022 has been a huge year for makeup. Graphic eye liner, soft skin, fluffy brows and glossy lips are just some of the looks everyone is wanting and making their own. 

Here are some of the top trends in beauty:

• Soft skin is growing more popular by the day. A minimalist approach, using glowy primer, less foundation and extra blush to highlight the cheeks, is preferred to heavy coverage. I often have said that less is more. Radiance is key, and showing your natural beauty is the goal.

• Graphic eyeliner in bright bold, colors makes your eyes the focus; experiment with shapes for an even more daring look. If you go to Target, you’ll see that bright colors are dominating fashion right now, and eyeliner has followed suit. Paired with natural-looking skin, this eye trend provides a pop of fun.

• Eyebrow lamination is essentially a perm procedure that creates full-looking, shiny and smooth brows. Yes, you heard right — fluffy brows are back! The beauty industry has come a long way, and I’m thrilled about this trend. It makes bold brows the standard while skin makeup stays minimal and simple.

• Lip gloss has come back with full force — a nod to the 90s nostalgia that’s having a huge resurgence lately. Kiss the drying, matte lipstick goodbye, and say hello to glossy, plump lips. Like the stripped-back skin trend, this one is all about the basics, with clear, nude and a-hint-of-tint glosses making a tasteful, subtle statement. Hydration is a bonus, especially during a hot, South Mississippi summer.

Keep these trends in mind when you’re shopping for makeup or looking to try something new. Watch tutorials on YouTube to learn the latest tips and tricks, and apply them to your daily beauty routine.
