A New Beauty Trend: Unexpected Colors

Colorful eyes are making a comeback in 2022 but they are showing up in some exciting and unusual hues. Here are my favorite looks so far. Each is incredibly accessible for beauty lovers of all skill levels and are great for day-to-day wear.

Neutrals With Royal Blue

Blue is back in 2022 in a variety of ways. The color dominated fashion week with looks ranging from 80’s full lid coverage to a steel blue smokey eye. My favorite is Charlotte Tilbury’s royal blue eyeliner matched with neutrals in the look below. This is a fun way to electrify your eyes. I recommend trying the blue liner with terracotta and khaki colors for a really unique and updated look.

Warm and Glittery

I absolutely adore this trend. Warm and glittery is everything I want my makeup to be every day. This look pairs a sweet peach with silver glitter. Glitter face may have been a thing during the autumn and winter fashion weeks but I prefer this version of glitter. It is much more feminine and approachable.

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow – Amazon $27

Neon Green is officially trending. Who would have thought this color would make such a widespread splash across runways but green is in. And makeup artists found so many fantastic ways to make this unusual color work. Emma Chamberlain’s Met Gala makeup is by far my favorite. This green eyeliner has glow-worm vibes and really shines in a eye-catching way.

Panotone Color of the Year: Very Peri

For the Pantone Color of the Year 2022, the global authority has introduced a “dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone” called Very Peri. The Pantone Color Institute created the leading color matching system allowing designers, marketers, creators, and brands the opportunity to work together to build a strong color presence. Every year the Institute selects a color that affects not only design but also consumerism. I absolutely love how Very Peri is used on Zendaya’s under-eye liner and highlight. This is a unique and beautiful way to create a bolder look using soft colors.
