Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite high-end and luxury makeup products from 2022. I love sharing both high-end and drugstore favorites with you, and these are just a few amazing high-end makeup finds from 2022. These products are worth your dime if you are looking for popular high-end beauty that you & your skin will love. Let’s get started!
The shade range of Makeup Forever HD Skin is incredible, with 40 shades to choose from. I wear shade 2N22. You can see more of my foundation shade matches HERE. This foundation applies really nicely using any method. It gives me a gorgeous natural finish that evens out my skin tone and blurs my pores. I would rank its coverage from medium to medium-full. The formula lasts throughout the day while remaining hydrated on my combo-oily skin. I think this is a beautiful foundation for any skin type.
Because of its creamy hydrating formula, this Charlotte Tilbury Concealer is an excellent option if you have mature skin or dry under eyes. It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and golden vitamin c and rejuvenates the skin while providing medium to full coverage. It has a slight radiance to it that’s meant to brighten and lift the skin.
This Givenchy Setting Powder is a stunningly beautiful product and is loved by many. It brightens while mattifying shine and giving a soft lit-from-within radiance at the same time. The four shades of powder are a unique combination to help with color collection and radiance. It does a fantastic job of melding into the skin to blur imperfections and pores to perfect the skin. This is amazing for all skin types.
Caliray So Blown Primer is the best of both makeup and skincare. This primer does it all, and I’m so happy to have discovered it this year. It might be a primer, but it feels more like a lightweight moisturizer with collagen peptides. It almost instantly blurs my pores, which makes for an excellent base for my foundation. Plus, collagen and niacinamide help fight fine lines and loss of elasticity, which is an added bonus!
There’s a reason so many people rave about these luxurious Gucci Blushes and buy multiples! With its ultra-blendable, super-buildable, no-fail formula that blurs and flatters, it’s gorgeous on all skin types – even mature skin. Plus, added shea butter makes it hydrating while remaining a thin, lightweight powder formula. It’s also long-lasting. It’s basically the perfect blush formula!
I became a HUGE fan of MERIT Bronze Balm the moment I first tried it. I love the oval shape because it applies so much more easily to the curved areas of my face than other stick bronzer shapes. It’s also a sheer yet buildable bronzer, so it applies easily, and you can’t mess it up. Plus, it looks extremely natural. This is an excellent bronzer for makeup beginners or those new to cream or stick products.
Another must-have this year is the It Cosmetics Brow Power Micro in the shade Universal Taupe. Its teeny tiny dash-shaped pencil tip lets you create precise hair-like strokes. This is the perfect shape if you want to mimic your natural brow hair but don’t have the time or patience to deal with a pen. Brow Power Micro is great for those of us with sparse or uneven brows that need filling in. It’s also not waxy, so you get a nice line that’s not too harsh when you press down. Don’t worry if you overdo it; the brush at the end helps blend in the product for a natural finish. Plus, it wears well all day. I just love this thing so much!
I have reached for this Natural Nudes Palette a TON since I discovered it. The quality of both the mattes and the shimmers is fantastic. I can get a wide range of looks with this, and I love all of them. It is a great palette to travel with because it’s thin yet has everything for a solid eye look or a simple one-and-done eye look. I even line with the deep shades. If you’ve been hesitating, you may want to give this a second look. I absolutely adore this palette.
Tarte knew what they were doing with these viral lip products! The Maracuja Juicy Lip Balm feels amazing on my lips with its hydrating pigment. The same goes for the Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump, which gives juicy plush color with a high gloss shine to smooth out lips and make them appear plumper. Both have tons of hydrating and nourishing ingredients that treat and nourish. They’re so flattering, comfortable, and easy to apply! I have both in multiple shades because I can’t get enough!
I’m so glad I tried Merit Lipstick in 2022. The formula is quite unique. It’s a pigmented lipstick that feels light and nourishing like a balm yet provides buildable flattering long-lasting pigment. Usually, lip products that provide such pigment tend to build up as you layer them, yet these remain light and airy. Though any shade is perfect for everyday use, I’ve been enjoying the shade Baby for an everyday neutral pink nude that’s perfect for any occasion.
