The beauty trends to expect in 2022

These are the most anticipated innovations and beauty trends you wont want to miss in 2022.

2021 was the year of skincare, but this year’s beauty trends are about bringing colour and playfulness to makeup, introducing a new key ingredient into current skincare brands, and hard to miss hair.

The beauty industry is continuously evolving. From clean beauty to hyper-personalisation, and bold statements. 2022 will bring exciting forefronts in beauty that we can all get excited about.

Despite not knowing how the year ahead will pan out when it comes to work, travel, social interactions, family gatherings and more, we do have something to look forward to – new beauty trends.

Here are the most anticipated innovations you can expect to see in the new year.

Fermented beauty:

Not new to the beauty industry, this revolutionary ingredient will be making a more significant appearance in 2022 to help achieve clearer, younger-looking skin.

While the process of fermentation may have previously been associated only with food, it has now made its way to beauty. By fermenting skincare ingredients their molecules break down allowing it to be easily absorbed into the skin.

Fermentation also creates acids such as lactic and acetic acid which become natural preservatives to maintain the skin’s microbiome.

Colourful and playful makeup:

This new year of makeup hopes to bring a smile with bright, glittery and bold looks paired with minimal and natural skin.

Nostalgia is high, which means futuristic and nineties makeup are making a come back, but with a more casual feel. So, plump cheeks and bright lips, as well as abstract eye looks, are in.

Natural skin foundations are also becoming bigger with specifically designed formulas that are able to mimic skin.

Nostalgic hairstyles:

After a year of living with the same hair colour and style in 2021, 2022 is the year of change with drastic hair colour transformation, chops and floor-length extensions taking place.

Dramatic chops are being encouraged as the shorter the hair the edgier the style. On the other end, extreme lengths are also being worn by celebrities Zoe Kravitz, Dua Lipa, Lili Reinhart and Camilla Cabello on the red carpets with sleek hairstyles.

Finally, the ’90s has made its way back into current hairstyles, which includes over accessorising, tinsel hair extensions, micro clips and huge claws.

Waterless beauty:

With sustainability gaining more momentum in beauty, the new frontier in eco beauty is waterless beauty.

When going through ingredients on a beauty or skincare product the first ingredient to spot is usually ‘aqua’. Water has always been a prominent ingredient in beauty products known to be used as a solvent and improve consistency.

However, it also breeds bacteria and is harmful to the environment as it reduces effectiveness of packaging. Now makeup and beauty brands are going waterless and reducing water consumption in their manufacturing.
