While it’s still early in the year, it looks like 2022 will experience no lack of creativity when it comes to popular beauty trends. When beauty enthusiasts said they were going to experiment with makeup this year, they meant it! With everything from 90s-inspired lined lips to gender-fluid beauty looks, there is sure to be something for everyone to try. Our stylists at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lawrence, Kansas, love staying up to date with the latest beauty trends and have detailed this spring’s most popular runway beauty trends below. It’s time to step outside your comfort zone and let your inner creativity run wild!
It’s no secret that everything from 90s-inspired clothing to 90s-inspired hairstyles have found their way to the forefront of current trends, so it comes as no surprise that the iconic well-defined lips of the 1990s are once again popular! By combining a dark-toned lip liner to define the outer line of your lip with a lighter neutral-toned lipstick, you can easily achieve the look of fuller lips without looking like you’ve overdone it. To find your perfect amount of liner, apply your lipstick first and see where your lips naturally touch on the top and bottom. Then, you can go in with your darker lip liner to line the border of your lipstick. When choosing a lip liner, remember, the darker the liner, the more definition you can create!
Are you tired of pink and coral blush tones? We have the perfect trend for you to try this year—purple blush! If you haven’t been on TikTok (let’s face it, you’re probably living under a rock), you likely haven’t seen the vibrant blush trends of plum, violet, and lavender. What’s important to note is these purple blushes are not only popular because of their quirky vibe, but they also have a universally flattering effect. Once blended out, purple blush is highly complementary to deep and olive skin tones and enhances natural undertones in the skin, making them the perfect product for all seasons. If you’re nervous about first trying it out, consider purchasing a more mauve-toned cream blush that can be easily blended out!
This year, runways have witnessed an influx of naturally textured hairstyles. Make a splash with crinkled waves that look almost wet! Not only is textured hair easy to maintain and style, but it can be achieved with a multitude of different products, such as a mousse or styling gel that gives the illusion of damp hair. Our stylists at the Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lawrence recommend using the JoiGel Firm Styling Gel as it locks in shine and hydration and locks out pollution and humidity. Simply apply some firming gel to your natural hair while using your hands to scrunch it upward toward the head, and you’re ready to go!
It’s 2022, and gender-fluid makeup is at the forefront of the beauty industry! Fueled mainly by younger Millenials and Gen Z, gender-inclusive beauty products like nail polish, lipstick, and eyeshadow have become increasingly popular amongst celebrities, regardless of their sex or gender. Since its origin, makeup hasn’t carried any rules when it comes to who wears it, but now more than ever before, brands are promoting and advertising their products as gender-inclusive and stepping away from gender-conforming stereotypes. This can be seen all across runway beauty trends, social media, and mainstream celebrities with Harry Styles’ recent release of his own nail polish line. No matter who you are, now is the perfect time to put your creativity to the test and start experimenting with modern makeup trends!
There’s nothing better than a makeup product that can be used for multiple purposes. That’s why this year is entirely centered around makeup with skincare ingredients included! While regular makeup use has been known to cause irritation and breakouts, opting for lighter, more natural-looking hybrid products that serve as both makeup and skincare can save both your skin and money. With the no-makeup makeup look still at the height of modern runway trends, our stylists recommend opting for a tinted moisturizer with SPF and a multi-purpose face balm that serves as a blush, lipstick, and eyeshadow. Makeup has never been easier!
