When it comes to makeup trends, 2022 is all about making a statement.
That’s why it’s no surprise that Pantone’s Colour of the Year is “Very Peri”, a cool mix of blue and violet-red undertones that blend into a gorgeous Periwinkle shade.
The colour’s courageous presence encourages personal inventiveness and creativity.
So if you want to evoke the spirit of 2022, why not try this versatile Periwinkle makeup look using products from LOOKFANTASTIC?
Achieve this dreamy look in 5 easy steps.
Prep your skin with this Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base.
Save more time with this hybrid formula that works both as a moisturiser and primer.
Enriched with hyaluronic acid, shea butter and a blend of vitamins B5, C and E, this nourishing cream hydrates and softens the skin.
Get started by taking a pea-sized amount of the cream, rub with your fingertips, then dab and massage into your face in circular motions until it has been fully absorbed.
This will increase blood flow on the skin and create a smoother and plumper base.
Top it with Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup.
This oil-free, lightweight matte foundation has medium to full coverage that lasts up to 24 hours.
It’s also available in a wide range of shades, complimenting multiple skin tones with a seamless finish.
You can apply this foundation in two different ways.
Use a foundation brush to blend and buff the liquid foundation if you’re going for a natural look.
If you want your foundation to last longer, wet a sponge and bounce the foundation across your face for a flawless look.
Create frosty or smoky Periwinkle eyes with this Urban Decay Naked Ultra Violet Palette.
For a fun, Y2K-inspired frosty look, sweep the glittery white Lucid shade all over your eyelids.
With your fingertip, top your lower lids with the baby pink Optimized shade and blend with the frosted purple shade, Euphoric.
Then dab the deep purple shade, Cyber Punk on your upper lids, just below your brow bone and blend.
To create a glam smoky eye, use an eyeshadow brush to sweep the neutral beige shade, Trippin’ just below your crease to build colour.
Blend with the fuchsia shade, Warning and the frosted purple shade, Euphoric.
Then contour the upper lids with the dark purple shade, Purple Dust and blend with the deep purple shade, Cyber Punk.
Line your lids with Eyeko Limitless Long-Wear Pencil in the mauve shade, Manifest. If you’re feeling extra creative, feel free to do a cat eye flick.
Get blushing with MAC Sheertone Blush in Breath of Plum.
This powder blush creates a soft, sheer, “just pinched” natural cheek colour.
If you’re expecting us to tell you to apply this light mauve blush onto the apples of your cheeks, well, not this time.
The latest blush application trend is the “contour and lift” technique.
This involves sweeping your blush in a slant angle above your cheekbone and blending in an upwards motion until your temples.
Try this with MAC Sheertone Blush in Breath of Plum and thank us later.
Pucker up with Stila Liquid Lipstick in Como.
Enhance your pout with this creamy matte lippie coming in an orchid lilac shade that lasts for up to six hours.
Enriched with Vitamin E and Avocado Oil, this liquid lipstick is hydrating and nourishing, delivering highly pigmented colour that won’t bleed or transfer.
Needless to say, this lippie will go so well with the frosty/smoky purple eyeshadow and mauve blush to finish your monochromatic Periwinkle look.
There you have it. It’s that simple. You can wear this look to a date, a night out or even go extra glam by adding glitter or gem stickers for an ultra-trendy embellished eye look.
Now, are you ready to strike a pose, take a beauty shot and paint the town Periwinkle?
