Summer is my favorite season for beauty trends. Something shifts in the summer—full-coverage foundations become weightless skin tints, carefully placed highlighter becomes all-over dewy skin, and anything heavy becomes completely obsolete. Summer is the time to play with your makeup, embrace your natural skin, and make fun, playful statements (that won’t melt in the heat!).
This summer is all about “skinimalism,” or letting your skin be the star of the show. Think glazed-donut skin, an abundance of blush, and natural-looking finishes. Top it off with a bright, playful eye, and you have your summer 2022 look down. I spoke with makeup artists to get the rundown on the summer trends they’re most excited about—and trust me, you’ll want to be ahead of the curve.
