When it comes to beauty and fashion month, pretty much anything goes. And as self-professed hair and makeup obsessives, we pretty much live for it. (In our eyes, the weirder and more outlandish, the better.) The sparkling shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris have come and gone, but the artistic visions of designers (and the leagues of über-talented makeup artists and hairstylists) are still swirling in our inspiration-starved brains.
We’ve taken a beat to ingest everything we saw—from glitter-crusted earlobes and limbs to bumblebee-stamped complexions—and put together a comprehensive list of the most notable (and actually try-able) beauty looks we spotted repeatedly in each and every city. Y2K inspirations continued to pull their weight via glitter, centre partings, crimps and bite-sized braids, as did futuristic nods towards galactic facial embellishments, rainbow-striped eyelids and chrome-finished everything—an elite assortment of beauty fodder if we’ve ever seen it.
To give you a taste of the magic we saw on the runways, we’re sharing 13 of the most prominent trends of the S/S 22 season below, plus the easy-to-use products to help you channel each aesthetic on your own. Keep scrolling—you’re in for a treat.
