New beauty trends to try this spring

Brilliant pastels and high humidity officially arrived with Houston Spring. The Spring/Summer 2022 shows of September’s past also foreshadowed the season’s beauty trends, which are an ode to the early 2000s. Models strutted down the runway with slicked-back locks and a press down the middle, however, the makeup wore fashionable filler.

Major moments from shows like Versace, Kim Shui and Chloe featured models with holographic shadows and striking lining, ranging from electric blue to eye-catching oranges, which launched an outfit from cute to statement-making. In addition to captivating eyes, the cheeky contoured blush went viral catapulted by Anna Sui’s spring runway.

Glam arguably wouldn’t be complete without a mesmerizing lip to tie the face together, and spotted on the runways at Acne Studio and Michael Kors were bold yet mesmerizing lips. From floral crimson to shimmering nude pout, spring finds its playful essence with makeup.

While soft glamor and neutrals will hold throughout the year, spring is arguably the only season to outshine safe glamor and create editorial looks. As fashion moves towards maximalism, beauty follows suit. Lucid, dramatic and memorable now define Spring 2022 makeup looks.
