I don’t know about you, but after the holidays, I’m pretty much over wintertime and ready for everything that comes along with spring. You know how people start playing Christmas music in September? Yeah, that’s me, except it began the day after New Year’s Eve, and I’ve already planned my new spring hair color, spring nail colors, some outfits with cute spring fashion trends, and, of course, all the fun spring 2022 makeup trends from the runways that I wanna try.
I, for one, am always glad to retire the holiday shades that got me through winter (at least until next year) and bust out all the shimmers, metallics, neons, and pastels. And according to all the looks from all the spring/summer fashion shows, you can expect to do the same. Ahead, the best bright, glittery, and colorful spring 2022 makeup trends from the runways to get you through the winter slump and excited for springtime.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS JELLY GLOSS
Tower 28 Beauty ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss
The best thing about the Y2K lip gloss resurgence? The modern glosses have the same amount of shine sans the stickiness. The formulation will also leave your lips feeling insanely hydrated thanks to the apricot kernel oil. Pro tip: Purchase the clear lip gloss so you can pop it on top of any of your favorite lipstick colors.
HOW TO DO IT: THESE CRYSTAL FACE JEWELS
ColourPop Individual Crystal Face Jewels
Crystal eye looks were everywhere this past year, and the trend seems to be going strong for spring 2022. These ColourPop individual face jewels have a flat and sticky back for easy application on your lash line, underneath the eyes, or anywhere else you want a little glam. For a more secure hold, use a dab of lash glue.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS PIGMENTED BLUSH
Melt Cosmetics Blush
Just as you would apply contour for your face shape, blush contouring works the same way. The only difference? Switch your contour shade out for a blush that suits your look. If you aren’t ready to go all out on the trend, apply the blush with a light hand, and layer and build it up as you see fit.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS BODY SHIMMER
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Fairy Bomb Shimmer Powder
So you love the glitter, but you’re not ready to go full out. Enter: This Fairy Bomb Shimmer Powder courtesy of the one and only RiRi. Use a puffer or brush to sweep it across your eyes, body, face, or wherever you want a little extra shimmer. PSA! If you want to try something less subtle, an opaque glitter balm will do the trick.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS LIQUID EYESHADOW
Stila Double Dip Suede Shade And Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows in Beach Wave
To create the graphic line on the inner half of the eyes for the models at Monse, makeup artist Charlie Riddle used this double-ended liquid shadow stick that has a pearly teal shade on one side and a sheer sparkly teal on the other. And guess what? It comes with a doe-foot applicator that makes it super easy for you to recreate the look.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS NEON GREEN EYESHADOW
MAC Cosmetics Eye Shadow in What’s the Wifi?
Not one of your wintery green eyeshadows, this attention-grabbing electric lime shade is like spring in a pan. Apply it with a wet brush for super-pigmented eyeliner, or diffuse it out with fluffy eyeshadow brushes. To pull off the look shown at Prabal Gurung, keep the color concentrated on the inner and outer corners of the eye.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS LIPSTICK
Bobbi Brown Luxe Defining Lipstick in Orchid Noir
Instead of lining the lips and filling them in, start by tracing the inside of the lips and blending the color outward for this diffused spring makeup look.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS FROSTY LIPSTICK
MAC Cosmetics Frost Lipstick in Pink Power
HOW TO DO IT: THIS PRECISION LINER
Dior Diorshow On Stage Liquid Eyeliner
Getting one sharp, straight-winged line is hard enough, so to achieve two double-winged eyes like the look at Dior, you’re gonna need a super-precise and easy-to-use liquid liner, like this one. With a fine tip that’s part felt, part brush, this eyeliner allows for the smoothest application.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS EYESHADOW PALETTE
Pat Mcgrath Labs Mthrshp Mega: Celestial Odyssey Eyeshadow Palette
If the makeup shown at Versace was the spring makeup look of all spring makeup looks, consider this the eyeshadow palette of all eyeshadow palettes. The shimmery green shade was used to create the look above, but think of the endless possibilities with all 18 shades.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS EYESHADOW QUAD
Tom Ford Eye Color Quad Eyeshadow Palette in 01 Golden Mink
To DIY it, apply the shimmery brown shade from this palette all over your lid, then top it with a sparkly gold along the brow bone, on the crease, and in the inner corner of your eyes to add even more glamour.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS PINK BLUSH
Pat McGrath Labs Divine Powder Blush in Cherish
To DIY the warm, glittery look, like the one Pat McGrath created above, dip your brush in your pink and coral shadows (if you don’t have any, grab a bright pink blush, like the demi-matte one here) and press it onto the inner and outer corners of your eyes and on your cheeks. And don’t forget to fill in the center of the lids with a silver glitter shadow.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS GLITTER MAKEUP
Lemonhead Spacepaste Glitter Concentrate in Marine
Glittering your own face can be a bit tricky, but this paste makes it much easier. If you want to try to pull off the look yourself, use a flat synthetic brush dipped in this glitter goo to paint the winged shape.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS BROWN LIP PENCIL
Smashbox Be Legendary Line & Prime Pencil in Dark Brown
If you were not alive in the ’90s and want to know how to get the look yourself, focus the brown lip liner on the center of the lips and keep it softer in the corners. Then, use a brush to fill in the rest of the lips with lipstick.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS ORANGEY-RED LIPSTICK
Uoma Beauty Badass Icon Matte Lipstick in Tina
This matte lipstick is packed with pigment but still comfortable and lightweight on the lips, and the shade feels like a classic red but with a little more warmth and hint of orange to it.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS CORAL LIP AND CHEEK TINT
Milk Makeup Mini Lip + Cheek in Perk
Thanks to the oils and mango butter in the formula, this creamy tint blends beautifully and can be sheered out like a lip stain and built up as much as you want. Roll a little on the apples of your cheeks and your lips, then use the warmth of your hands to blend it out and melt it into the skin.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS CREAM COLOR PALETTE
Make Up for Ever Flash Color Palette Multi-Use Cream Color Palette
To achieve the super-vivid, vibrant color on the inner corners, makeup artist Diane Kendal used shades from this highly pigmented, blendable cream color palette. And don’t forget the loose glitter on the outer corners to finish the look.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS MATTE RED LIPSTICK
Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Lip Soufflé Matte Cream Lipstick in Inspire
To get a velvety red lip similar to the one above, use a creamy matte lipstick in a bright red shade. When all you’re wearing is a red lip, you gotta make sure your pout looks *chef’s kiss*, and the formula here uses vitamin E to keep the lips hydrated and smooth and prevent the lipstick from flaking or caking.
HOW TO DO IT: THIS BROWN LIPPY
Bobbi Brown Crushed Lipstick in Dark Chocolate
