When it comes to beauty, 2022 looks like it’s going to be a standout year. We’re seeing all sorts of new cosmetic options come to the market, as well as the return of a few old favorites.
Putting on lipstick every day can feel like a bit of a chore. What’s more, many companies put ingredients in their products that you don’t want going into your body.
Lip blushing helps people to get around this problem. It’s a semi-permanent tattoo for the lips that makes them look fuller and more shaded and generally lasts around six months.
The technique sounds a little crazy, but its popularity is exploding. Everyone wants it, it seems.
Fermented Ingredients In Skin Products
Way back in 2021, the idea of putting fermented ingredients on your skin, such as soy, fig, and millet, sounded a little odd. But now there’s a movement to include them in more products.
Why? It all comes down to enzymes. Manufacturers believe that by fermenting ingredients, they’re able to create products that better penetrate the skin. Furthermore, the growth of beneficial bacteria may even enhance the quality of the skin, making it less dry, itchy, and unmanageable during the winter months.
Pop icon Rita Ora recently showed off her teeth whitening and jewels on social media. Now it’s becoming a trend that’s gaining traction. The idea is to add even more sparkle to the teeth, to go beyond regular cosmetics and highlight them for what they are.
We’re also seeing the emergence of so-called “cleanicals” – special clinical products that are free from toxic chemicals.
The movement is being led by brands that are looking to clean themselves up. Their new formulations expressly forbid any ingredients that could cause harm in a bid to gain the trust of consumers.
Right now, the big players are losing ground to smaller boutique brands offering more natural products. The hope is that by moving over to cleanicals, they can recover some of their lost ground.
Full face lifts are still a thing, but they’re no longer what people are going for. They’re a bit too extreme. Consumers are now opting for so-called “tweakments” or procedures that make just small changes to their appearance.
The idea behind this movement is actually quite nice. It’s the idea that people don’t have to make substantial changes to how they look. Just small improvements can go a long way. The hope is that it will help people perfect their signature look, not try to look like a different person altogether.
This year, fashionistas are moving beyond the conventional “trim” and going for more radical hairstyles. And we’re not just talking short bobs, either. 2022’s hairstyles are spicier than ever before, with women going for mohawks, shaved heads and even wearing mullet wigs. The trend is being driven by celebrities such as Miley Cyrus and Billie Eilish.
So which of these beauty trends will you be experimenting with this year? Do you like the direction things are going?
