makeup trends Glam Makeup Is Back 一 Here Are 4 Ways To Get The Look

Step aside, skinimalism.

Glam Makeup

If your everyday makeup routine has been significantly pared down over the last year or two (or perhaps non-existent), you might be bored of the monotony and looking to spice things up. The good news is that glam makeup is making a comeback after what feels like a long period of minimalism commanding the industry. That’s not to say that we’re parting ways with skinimilasm for good 一 we’re simply making room for more bold, elevated makeup looks. So if you’re wishing to level up your makeup, but you’re in need of some inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. Ahead, four different ways give your look a glamorous touch. 


1. Metallic Eyeshadow

Don’t be fooled into thinking that glam makeup requires much skill 一 you can add an elevated touch to your everyday makeup look through minor tweaks to your techniques and product choices. For example, rather than swiping on a wash of a neutral, matte eyeshadow, experiment with metallics. In addition to being extremely versatile, metallic eyeshadow is a major eye makeup trend for 2022. Perhaps the easiest way to wear it is by applying a shimmering shadow like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow to your eyelids with your fingertips. 

2. Disco Eyes

Pinterest predicts that bejeweled eye makeup will make its mark in 2022. Adding gems or pearls to your eyeshadow looks is a creative way to get glam and make a statement. You can buy face gems online and use eyelash glue or makeup glue to secure them in your design of choice. Top off your look with a coat of volumizing mascara like the L’Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara, Lightweight Mega Volume Washable and you’ll be set with an eye-catching look. 

3. Smokey Eyeliner

While smudgy, reverse cat eyeliner was one of 2021’s biggest makeup trends, it will remain on top for the foreseeable future. You can boost your everyday makeup look by opting for smoldering eyeliner on your bottom lash line, or you can amp it up even more by extending to your top lids à la the popular ‘90s makeup style. Grab a creamy eyeliner pencil like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner, lay down your liner shape, and smudge it out with a pencil eyeshadow brush. 

4. Bold Lips 

It doesn’t get easier than putting a glam spin on your makeup look by popping on a striking lip color. Layer on some mascara, blend in a dewy tinted serum, and apply your favorite bright lipstick 一 you’ll have a simple glam makeup look that requires little effort. If you need some lip color ideas, we love a hot pink like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte Mandate, or a vampy burgundy like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Reds Of Worth Satin Lipstick With Saturated Color in Hopeful Red
