Harvey Nichols Reveals The Beauty Trends Of 2022

As beauty trends are continuously evolving and changing, it can feel like an impossible task to keep up with the latest products and techniques. Last year, we saw the rise of the soap-brow and graphic liner, but what’s in store for 2022?

Helen Gough, Beauty Department Manager at Harvey Nichols Mailbox, shares her beauty predictions for 2022 in our latest Q&A.

What is your top beauty hack? 

Always use brown mascara on your bottom lashes as it’s not as harsh, but still provides amazing definition and enhances the eye.

A great product for this is Sisley, So Stretch Mascara in number 2 (£48). This product contains vitamin peptides for lash growth and helps to nourish to your lashes.

As the weather gets colder, how should we be switching up our skincare routine to keep our skin feeling hydrated and looking radiant?

I’d recommend taking supplements such as Advanced Nutrition Programme’s skin moisture IQ (£77), a 28-day supply of the muti layered skin hydration. It contains hyaluronic acid, ceramides and manganese, omegas 3 and 6 vitamins A and D, plus an array of modern vitamins and minerals for more radiant and hydrated skin.

You could also try a hydrating sheet mask from 111skin. The Rose Gold Sheet Mask (£20) is infused with 24kt gold and damask rose extract, for a replenishing result. It helps soothe, hydrates, and brightens, to create radiant luminous skin.

A Lip Balm is also essential for winter. The ESPA, Pink Pomelo lip balm, £13, leaves lips soft and smooth with a subtle sheen. It’s also 100% natural, with wild mango and pomegranate to lock-in moisture and help protect lips.

From sunlight to pollution and blue-light exposure, our skin goes through a lot each day – how can we protect our skin from these everyday occurrences?

For sensitive skin, Sarah Chapman, Comfort Cream D-Stress (£66) is a must-try. It’s an ultra-comforting recovery moisturiser designed to address the five main signs of sensitivity: irritation and discomfort, redness or flushing, reduction in the skin’s natural defence barrier, dehydration and susceptibility to further sensitivity.

What is the one beauty product you can’t live without?

I love the Caudalie range. The Caudalie, Vinoperfect Radiance Serum (£46) is one of my all-time favourites! Its powerful, complexion correcting, formula helps to even darker areas and brightens your skin.

What are your top 5 winter beauty products?

  1. Augustinos Bader, The Cream (£215) is a deeply hydrating cream that helps restore your skin’s youthful appearance.
  2. Hourglass, No.28 lip treatment oil (£48) – the ’28’ in the title refers to the 28 beneficial ingredients used in the formula. The tip is 24kt gold-plated, making it antibacterial, and it moisturises and softens lips, helping to minimise the appearance of wrinkles whilst boosting volume.
  3. Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Oud Silk Mood (£215) is an oriental, woody floral fragrance with rose oil, violet accord, oud and vanilla.
  4. Dr Dennis, Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel (£89) helps to lift away dry, dull skin along with excess oil and impurities, whilst improving the appearance of uneven tone and texture.
  5. Colour WOW, Dream Filter (£26) removes minerals from hair and brightens dull distorted colour.

Trends for 2022

We’ve seen lots of changes to eyebrow trends over the years, including the popular soap brow technique – what brow products are people loving at the moment and what style could come next?

Fluffy brows are here to stay, so products that help to define and enhance the look of natural brows are really popular. Here are some of my favourites:

Sustainability in beauty is more important than ever with a huge amount of people turning to kinder products where possible. Are there any vegan and cruelty free make-up brands that are both kind to our skin and the planet?

Sunday Riley is a cruelty-free skincare brand, certified by PETA and Leaping Bunny. All of its products are vegetarian and most of its products are vegan, with the exception of those containing honey or beeswax. It is B-Corp certified and offsets its carbon footprint by purchasing carbon credits, uses energy-efficient shipping and manufacturing methods. Its packaging was also redesigned in 2020 to be sustainable.

In recent years, we’ve seen popular makeup brands add skin-loving ingredients to their formulas, such as niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and other antioxidants and vitamins. What are the top make-up brands’ hero products?

The Equilibrium line by Hourglass has received glowing reviews. Known for its ‘cell balancing complex’ the range uses a powerful combination of youth lipids (phospholipids and prolipids) that rebalances, restores, and renews the skin barrier.

Fenty Skin is another popular range and is quickly becoming just as well known as it’s iconic makeup must-haves. It has been designed to be un-complicated and has been tested on all skin types and tones.

The biggest beauty trend at the moment is a natural look – everything from our hair to our face is focused on being a clean and natural. Do you think this trend is here to stay, if not, what do you think will come next?

I believe the natural look will never go out of fashion and skincare will always be a top priority. A full face of glam is a thing of the past now people are wearing facemasks as part of their daily routine. Instead, we have seen an increase in customers looking to keep their skin dewy and clean.

What do you predict will be the ‘it’ product of 2022?

Cream blushers offer a more natural, dewy finish. They are easy to apply and control how much pigment you apply, to create a nice, natural look which blends more seamlessly. They are perfect for both daytime and evening looks and can be used on-the-go to instantly add warmth into your complexion.
