Fall 2022 Runway Makeup Trends and the Products That Recreate the Look


Turn up the volume of your everyday look with these maximalist beauty tips straight from the runways.


Bleached eyebrows, either you hate it or you love it, is the highly controversial beauty trend that has made a strong comeback on the runways. Top fashion houses, like Versace and Viktor & Rolf, had their models walk the runway with barely-there eyebrows to provide the perfect blank canvas for their dark makeup looks. It certainly isn’t for the faint of heart, but contrary to popular belief, you can try out the trend without ever touching a drop of peroxide. When choosing a brow tint, opt for two to three shades lighter than your natural brow color. Another option is to lay down your strands with some brow gel, brush them thoroughly with concealer, and set it all in with a loose powder.

Despite the continuous Euphoria makeup craze, not all of us are keen on pulling off rhinestone-studded eyes on a regular basis. However, if you still want that extra shine to stand out, an easy alternative is a hint of metallic shadow in the inner corners of your eyes, à la Dior. For more of an impactful statement, get inspired by the Gucci x Adidas show where metallic silver foil was seen on the lids of the models who had bare, glistening skin. There’s a full spectrum of alloys in every shade imaginable nowadays, from shimmering sapphire to dusky bronze, so go ahead and make it the finishing touch of your look.

Both angsty and classic, the smokey eye is a dramatic look that can easily be reimagined in new, fresh ways. Take for example the intentionally blurry cat-eye at the Halpern and Bora Aksu Fall/Winter 2022 shows that are reminiscent of lived-in makeup. To avoid having raccoon-eyes, use a waterproof kohl liner on the waterline and lash line, then smudge it out. This will help avoid the dark shadow from overextending to your eyelid. Keep the rest of the face extremely simple with a light blush and highlight for that right amount of feminine sultriness.

The “no makeup” makeup look will always be timeless, but this generation’s it-girls are amping up its sophistication by making skin more luminous with strategically placed blush. Opt for a sunscreen or primer that has a glowy finish, and for the most natural, lifted look, use a liquid blush that you can easily blend on the very peak of your cheekbones. Throw in a slicked-back bun and glossy lip, and you’ve nailed the cool yet sophisticated aesthetic of the likes of Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid.
