Spring / summer 2022 makeup news


The new makeup spring / summer 2022 there are many, even if different threads tend to bring them all together for good or bad. Among the beauty novelties for the hot season we certainly find light face bases and second skin effect, very bright but at the same time smoothing, with textures and formulations also suitable for combination or oily skin. The same gloss, so to speak, can be found on the lips because creamy lipsticks with a luminous finish and, above all, vinyl lips with very high sealing, return to the fore.

And the natural effect of the skin is then accentuated by cream or gel blushes, which blend perfectly with the skin. The real protagonist, however, is the eye make-up, which lights up with fluo colors, full and vibrant but also pastel, for those who prefer to play with color in a softer way.

The face base becomes luminous, second skin effect

The makeup trend for the face base seems to be very clear: second skin effect. The concept of foundation is resized to move to something halfway between foundation, BB Cream and colored cream, but definitely more performing. Such as Rare Beauty Positive Light Tinted Moisturizer, available in 24 shades, for every skin tone. It can also be applied easily with the fingers, moisturizes the skin, leaves it radiant, contains spf 20 but at the same time unifies the complexion.

Let’s forget very opaque, very dense and opaque foundation because the textures become more liquid, melting and light, almost like serums. It is the case of Neve Cosmetics Cream To Serum Foundation, a serum foundation with a second skin effect, plumping suitable for all ages, even for skins marked by time and with a buildable but impalpable coverage. When applied to the skin, the whipped cream texture becomes fluid and releases mineral pigments, which is why it is important to shake it before use.
