5 Beauty Trends We Can’t Wait to See in 2022

By Waxing The City

We don’t know about you but after the holiday season, we’re ready for all things 2022, especially the highly anticipated beauty trends that are on the horizon (spoiler alert: the center part IS coming back!). The new year is fast approaching, but we won’t blame you if you want to get a head start and try a few of these looks pronto.

#1: The “No Makeup” Makeup Look

The au naturale look is no stranger to the beauty industry, but it continues to stand the test of time. A lightweight, tinted moisturizer and a blush/bronzer combo are non-negotiables, but fluffy, slightly unkept brows are key to nailing an Insta-worthy “woke-up-like-this” appearance. That’s because full and fluffy brows draw attention to the eyes without overpowering their natural beauty. Think of fluffy brows as you do messy buns—anyone can pull it off. The Kelley Baker Brow Defining Pencil and Tinted Brow Gel are your secret weapons for pulling off natural and full brows. 

Finish with a nude lipstick or moisturizing lip balm and you’ve just conquered the year’s hottest trend.

#2: Glossy Lips

Glossy lips are experiencing a resurgence and we are here for it. While muted shades and matte lip stains certainly stole the spotlight over the past year, our lips are happy that hydration is back in style. A high-lacquer glossy pout also gives a nod to other trends like shine and glitter, both of which will also be back in vogue this next year.

#3: Dewy Skin Is (Back) In!

Matte skin had its moment, but we’re thrilled to see slightly shiny (but never oily!) skin make a major comeback. No makeup product can fake healthy, hydrated skin and achieving a look that has just the right amount of dew without looking oily or sweaty has everything to do with your skincare routine before makeup application. Matte coverage had its moment, but 2022 is all about the glow. Vitamin C and Hyaluronic serum provide your skin with the hydration and brightening effects it needs to give off a stunning glow. Try Bling 20% Vitamin C Drops from Minimo. These magical drops provide a professional strength of 20 percent Vitamin C as well as a blend of skin-brightening extracts so your skin is able to maintain its youthful elasticity and even complexion. 

The second trick to achieving a look that glows is to apply highlighter. Apply highlighter to your upper cheekbones, the corners of your eyes, the bridge of your nose and on the brow bone. If you haven’t already gotten your hands on the Kelly Baker Brow Camo-Light Highlighter Pencil, put it at the top of your to-do list. This product is a game changer! It’s lightweight and creamy so application is seamless. 

#4: Bright Eyes 

All eyes are on the, well, eyes, in 2022. Bright, bold eyes will be all the rage this next year—think glitter and shades of neon! But while it’s fun to experiment with electrifying colors for liners and shadows, you don’t want to overlook how your eyes look naturally. That means taking care of dark circles and puffy undereyes. We swear by Patchology’s Rejuvenating and Illuminating Eye Gels. Not only do they come in fun variations, but they will lighten the appearance of dark circles, improve microcirculation around the eyes, eliminate pigmentation and reduce puffiness. 

#5: CBD Products 

Cannibidiol products, more commonly known as CBD, products have continued to grow in popularity throughout 2021 and it shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. CBD works wonders for reducing inflammation and preventing flare-ups. It also helps with irritating skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. If you’re looking to treat various conditions in a more natural way, CBD may be an effective solution for you. By incorporating one or two CBD products into your everyday routine, you can nourish your skin and lock in moisture. can even help you to nourish your skin and lock in moisture to achieve that glowy skin. We love Stigma’s CBD Moisturizing Cream that can be used on both the body and face to reduce redness, dryness and inflammation. 

All of these products are available at Waxing The City and your Cerologist would love to give you recommendations so don’t hesitate to ask them for their advice before or after your next appointment.
