Maximalism is on the rise.

It’s safe to say that skinimalism prevailed over the last year. And while dewy, natural skin will maintain its popularity, based on what we're seeing on the red carpet and what the 2022 Pinterest Trend Report is predicting, a maximalism approach to eye makeup will be ushered in with the new year. If you’re hoping to stay on top of the ever-changing beauty trends, keep reading because we’re sharing the eye makeup looks that will dominate for 2022. 

1. Graphic Eyes

Graphic eyeliner will remain popular this year, but graphic eyeshadow is joining the party. While talented makeup artists are creating intricate designs with eyeshadow, don’t be intimidated to give it a shot if you’re not a pro. A simple shape can make a bold statement. Outline your shape with a creamy pencil eyeliner like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner, and fill it in with a matte liquid eyeshadow.

2. Jeweled Accents

In an ode to the Y2K era, bedazzling is back 一 but in our makeup rather than on our jeans. Whether it’s done with crystals or mini pearls, dressing up eye makeup looks with jewels will be trendy this year. You can purchase face gems online, and glue them on in your pattern of choice with eyelash glue. 

3. Metallic Eyeshadow

Matte eyeshadows will always have a place in our makeup collections, but 2022 is the year of the metallic eyeshadow. This trend is totally customizable 一 you can create a detailed look like a halo eye, or opt for a simple wash of metallic color on your lids. Hop on the metallic train by rocking one of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadows. They’re highly pigmented, incredibly shiny, and long lasting.

4. Neon Hues 

This year, the neon eye makeup trend will be providing us with pops of vivid color that instantly brighten our day 一 and complexions. Combine two trends in one by creating graphic eyeshadow with a neon hue, and top off your look with a volumizing mascara like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara

5. Smokey Bottom Eyeliner

If you consume beauty content on TikTok, then you’re no stranger to the reverse cat eye. Smokey, winged eyeliner along the bottom lash line will continue to be incredibly popular this year. Get the look by smudging an eyeliner pencil along your bottom lashes and smoke it out with a matte black eyeshadow like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Noir Cest Noir
