According to Runway: Under-Eye Make-up will be the big beauty trend in 2022.
After years of concealing, our lower eyelids are now unexpectedly moving into the spotlight this year and especially next. Because the designers seem to agree on this for the coming spring/summer season: Eyeshadow & Co. does not only belong on the upper eyelid. From now on, the lower eyelids will also benefit from exciting make-up and set surprisingly beautiful beauty accents.
First a look back: At the beginning of the year, a beauty trend towards dark circles was already circulating on the social media platform TikTok, which was controversially discussed. The discussion was triggered by influencer Sara Carstens, who made up under-eye bags for herself and triggered a viral hype with the hashtag #darkcircles, which numerous followers emulated. But the make-up trend did not want to catch on completely.
The cheerful attempt by the designers to showcase the lower eyelids with artistic make-up seems more promising. So before we reach for the concealer that covers it again, it's worth taking a look at the runways. For the coming year 2022, numerous labels have already chosen Under-Eye Make-up to be the most spectacular make-up trend of the season, which can be interpreted in many ways.
At Etro's collection show for spring 2022, all eyes were on the models' sparkling lower eyelids. Pearls, rivets, and glittering rhinestones set extravagant focal points. The rest of the make-up is kept subtle. A foundation and a touch of rose-colored blush serve as the basis.
At Del Core, the models' lower eyelids shine in electric blue and rich green tones and cover the natural blue-purple hue. The inner corners of the eyes were also accentuated with lavender and coral tones. This creates a dreamy look that resembles a spring-like smokey eye. If you want to try the make-up, paint the lower eye area in pastel tones, e.g. with a refreshing green or a summery pool blue.
The models at Daniela Gregis wore a more graphic vision of the under-eye make-up. For this purpose, three lines in strong ultramarine blue were drawn around the eye area. Those who normally fail to draw an accurate water line can be pleased: The graphic lines can be applied in different lengths and widths for this make-up look. Goodbye, perfectionism! Artistic creativity is required here. All it takes is a particularly creamy eyeliner.
Why not use the area around the lower eye area for beauty messages? With her interpretation of under-eye make-up, Ann Demeulemeester shows a creative new way of making statements. However, this look takes up a lot of space on the face, which is why the rest of the make-up should be subtle and natural. A liquid eyeliner with a long shelf life and a super fine but flexible tip is used.
At Rochas, make-up artist Lucia Pieroni used a brush to paint red, neon pink, and dark blue curlicues on the models' lower eyelids. They start on the sides of the nose and run down to the outer corners of the eyes. Here, too, creativity takes precedence over perfectionism. The following applies: Simply dip the brush in a creamy, bright color and paint on some happy lines that prepare.
