The 5 Most Wearable Makeup Trends for Winter 2022
The beauty powers that be have once again bestowed upon us the best in new makeup trends for the season. These are our picks for the top 5 most wearable trends for Winter 2022 to keep you up-to-date and decidedly de rigueur in the new year:
1. Creamy Everything

Cushy, creamy textures aren't just for skincare. Everything current in eyes and cheeks also has a yummy feel. Try Jane Iredale's Glow Time Blush Sticks for effortless, watercolor cheekbones, and Laura Mercier's wide variety of creamy Caviar Sticks for color that stays put, but goes easy on the eyes.
2. Soap Brows

Move over Boy Brow, it's all about the Soap Brow this season. Try this trend with Jane Iredale's Greatshape Brow Kit: Using a brow spool, apply the clear pomade to your brow with upward strokes from the front to the tail of your brows. Then apply the pigmented brow powder with an angled brush, careful to continue the upward brushing motion to keep the brow hairs lifted. Finally, using the handle of your brush, press the brows against the skin to set them in place.
3. Overlined Lips

The latest resurrection in '90s makeup nostalgia is the overlined lip--with an updated twist. Take your favorite neutral-toned lip lining pencil (we love Laura Mercier's Longwearing Lip Liners) and starting with the upper lip, begin lining just outside your natural lip line on the cupid's bow only. Then, line along your natural lip line on either side of the cupid's bow. On the lower lip, line just outside your lip line in the center of the bottom lip only. Similarly to the upper lip, line along your natural lip line on either side of the center of your lower lip. Fill in with your favorite neutral-toned lipstick. For the illusion of a little extra plump, lightly brush concealer (we recommend Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage) on the outsides of the sides of the upper and lower lips and blend.
4. The Smoky Winged Liner

A fab trend for anyone looking to walk the line (pun intended) of a well-defined lash line and sultry yet effortless-looking smoky eyes. Using a small, tight eye shadow brush (we recommend Laura Mercier's Smudge Brush) take a well-pigmented eye shadow of your choosing and apply shadow tightly along the upper lash line. At the outer corner, pull the eye shadow up and shape into a classic wing. If needed, go back over the line with more shadow to increase contrast and definition. If you need to "clean up" any blurry edges or increase the definition, take some under eye concealer on a concealer brush and trace along the outer edge of the wing, and blend.
5. Reverse Winged Eye Liner

Normally when we begin creating a winged eye liner look, we begin on the upper lash line and bring liner upwards into a point at the outer corners. The Reverse Wing is just that--the reverse--and creates a slightly different finish. Take your favorite eye lining pencil or liquid eye liner with a brush, and begin on the lower lash line, lining along your natural eye line. At the outer corners of the lower lash line, pull the eye liner upward, extending the natural curvature of the lower lash line up into a wing. This small shift in approach draws rather retro winged liner into the present for a spin on a classic that's undeniably current.
