Japanese beauty trends never fail to be interesting since they usually mix timeless and classic techniques with something cute and quirky. For Spring-Summer 2022, we spotted a lot of beauty looks from J-beauty magazines that we can easily recreate even in our own territories. Curious to see what these looks are? Scroll on to find out.
1. Soft coloured liner + kira kira jewels
If Euphoria-inspired festival-esque looks are too much for you to handle, this subtle take on the aesthetic from ViVi is the one for you. It’s achieved by using a coloured liner like blue or green (or any colour of your choice) for a small wing. However, instead of the wing being sharp, the liner is smoked out for a softer appeal.
The lower lashline is then lined with a shimmery liner in a lighter colour, creating a wide-eyed effect. Instead of using false lashes, mascara is simply added to finish the base of the eye look.
Once that’s done, place your kira kira (sparkling) jewels without going overboard and voilá — a nightlife-ready eye look!
2. Glossy monochrome
Dewiness never left Japanese beauty trends even when matte looks were dominating the West and some parts of the East. And it looks like it’s still here to stay for Spring-Summer 2022. Maquia recently featured this beautiful glossy monochrome makeup look that uses soft peachy tones topped with shimmer and gloss to create a sleek, clean vibe.
