Beauty Trends I’m Loving For Fall 2022

Keep scrolling

I have very mixed feelings when it comes to trends. Whether it Beauty, or in some other category, I generally prefer more timeless classic products and looks that transcend time. But there are some trends that make the whole space feel fresh again, and inspire me to try new things. As I perused the internet with a skeptical eye, I came across quite a few pictures and lists of beauty trends for 2022. Here are some that I’m loving and the products/resources I’d recommend for each.

FRESH BARELY-THERE
BASE

This one is kind of cheating. I’ve always loved a light base where your skin shines through. A base that’s to enhance what we have as opposed to a base that covers it up. And, I find this approach to foundation leads to lighter makeup in general.

And let’s be honest, it’s a lot less maintenance. If a barely-there base starts to fade or behave strangely, it’s barely detectable. Some of my favorite lightweight, light coverage, barely-there foundations can be found by hovering over the picture. (Photo from Vogue.com)

“This fall, you’ll want to set aside your matte, full-coverage foundations
and thick concealers (if you haven’t already) in favor of skin tints and sheer, lightweight formulas.”

Devon Abelman, Allure

NEUTRAL EARTHY-TONES

Again, I’m kind of cheating here. Is there any season I don’t like a good neutral earthy tone? No, there isn’t. But companies are now starting to dive deep into neutrals. Armani expanded their Lip Power line to include more nudes, as did Chanel with their Rouge Allure lipsticks. And we’re seeing it used as a monochromatic statement versus a safe choice when I can’t decide what else to use.

I am loving the full face of neutral, nude shades paired with a monochromatic neutral suit. To me, it looks incredibly powerful. Hover over the photo to see some of my favorite neutral-toned products for the season.

BOLD CHEEKS WITH
BURNT OUT COLOR

One of my favorite makeup categories is blush. I just love blush for all the same reasons you do, I’m sure. It instantly brightens the complexion, and gives us a healthy, well-rested and youthful appearance. This past Spring/Summer season, like many others, had me piling on the bright bubble gum pinks and punchy corals.

But there’s something quite fetching about a sunburnt, terracotta blush for the late Summer/Fall season. I am very excited to dig out my burnt-out toned blushes for the Fall. Even if I haven’t spent the whole summer lounging at the beach, I can at least fake it.

BLEACHED BROWS

I did not think this trend would, well, become a trend. And at first I really thought it looked awkward and alien. But, it has completely grown on me. Done in a subtle way, it creates lightness to the complexion, and done in a dramatic way it looks modern. I’ve also seen it take on the effect like the brow has been highlighted. And wow! does that create some depth to the brow. What I love the most about this trend is it can be temporary. You can achieve it by using a variety of different products – concealer, nude colored eye primer, cream eyeshadow and a spooly. But if you’re into a more permanent bleaching of the brow, I suggest going to a professional. It’s like bleaching any other hair and having very dark hair myself, I wouldn’t want them to turn orange (unless that’s the intended look.)

IMPERFECT GRUNGEY
SMOKY EYES

Hover the picture to shop

Here’s a trend that we’ve seen over and over again, but somehow it’s looking fresh again. This year’s smoky eye looks messy, careless and imprecise. There’s no arguing that a smoky eye is probably one of the fastest ways to create a sexy, come-hither look.

But the smoky looks I’ve been seeing have been more artistic with greasy lids and imperfect liner. And paired with a bleached brow? You definitely have my attention.
