Spring gives us an opportunity to change things up, try something new and fun that doesn’t need to be complicated. There are no rules when it comes to makeup and hair trends for spring/summer 2022. I like to call it optimistic beauty. Play with color and/or texture—whatever makes you feel good.
Skin is the foundation (pun intended) of beautiful makeup. When skin looks great, anything goes. For our fashion shoot, I started with clean, well-moisturized skin. I applied Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer to diminish imperfections and used a light application of tinted moisturizer with SPF to balance discoloration and protect the skin.
When it comes to color, choose one feature and play it up—throw caution to the wind and try something unexpected. On our model, I choose to focus on the eyes and applied a sheer turquoise cream shadow from lash line to just past the crease.
I balanced the face using Milk Makeup lip + cheek blush stick in the dusty rose color, called Werk, on the lips and cheeks. There is such nostalgia for me in using the same color on lips and cheeks, as it reminds me of my mom, who always used this technique.
I wanted the hair to be both structured and carefree. I used hair accessories like clips and a scarf to add a whimsical feel to the shapes I created. Again, the idea is to play and try something new and fun.
