Another year has passed and the beauty industry continues to excel... And, this year, there'll be plenty of new beauty trends that'll help!We know Glossies like to be ahead of the times, and love expressing themselves with new looks. So, whether it's hair, nails, makeup or more, these five (possibly ur favourite) are sure to be BIG in 2022!


We've already seen galaxy prints take over fashion in 2021. And, in 2022, this trend moves to your fingertips! However you want to interpret space, the planets, or even the constellations that shine above us at night, be sure to try putting all that cosmic energy into your next nail look. Go for some celestial nail art at your next salon appointment or, if you're a DIY queen, why not pick up some galactic shades and turn your digits into the cosmos!

The Barry M Cosmetics Classic Nail Paint in shade 'Whimsical Dreams' will turn your nails into the Milky Way! The award-winning formula will sparkle so much it'll be seen from space. Plus it dries quickly and is super long-lasting!


From celestial nails to astrological hair! The trend that's coming back into orbit this year is Space Buns! This interstellar hairstyle will take over runways, Instagram and even the office! You can rock the classic space buns look, add a braid into the mix or go half-up space buns and let your locks down too!

Need a tutorial? Take a look at our six-step guide to the perfect space buns look.

  1. Brush your hair until it’s smooth and tangle-free. Use your comb to create a middle parting down the centre of your head.
  2. Create pigtails! Now you're in charge here Glossies, so you can go as high or low as you want your buns. Just make sure the pigtails are even and preferably use a rubberband bobble (the same colour as your hair!) to secure them into place.
  3. Next, we need volume! Tease your hair with a comb to achieve fuller-looking space buns, then twist your first pigtail! Alternatively, here is where you can plait your hair instead to create braided space buns - the choice is up to you!
  4. Once twisted, start wrapping your hair (away from your face) around the base of your pigtail. Secure with a hair tie and grips, if needed. Then do the same with your second pigtail.
  5. Get creative! Add any intergalactic slides you may have or add some glitter to your roots even! You can wiggle the buns to loosen them slightly - tug on them like you would do with plaits to give extra volume.
  6. Add hairspray! You don't want all your hard work to go to waste - so spray your buns with hairspray to lock them into place!

To help with volume, while your hair is damp, apply Giovanni GNV 2chic U-Volume Styling Mousse to your locks. This mousse aids in styling hair, defining volume and leaves hair thick with a luscious appearance! Together, ingredients tangerine and papaya butter nourish hair without leaving a variety or sticky residue.


This year is all about elegance. Iridescent pearls incorporated into fashion, accessories and, of course, beauty will be on the rise. Whether it's classic pearl earrings or a pearl-encrusted collar on a white shirt, tasteful pearls will be the classy trend of 2022. To celebrate this trend within beauty, try the Holika Holika Pure Essence Pearl Mask Sheet.Place this ultra-fine sheet mask onto your face and keep on for 15 minutes. This allows the mask to infuse its rich ingredients into your complexion for instant results. Think radiance, hydration and a healthy glow!


Glossies, the Goth trend is making a comeback! Think dark, think mysterious. And you can pretty much incorporate a slight gothic feel into any beauty look. A smoky eye, jet black liner, darker shades of shadow. However you want to express yourself, do it!

Why not try the gothic lip trend this year with Sleek MakeUP Lip Dose Soft Matte LipClick, in shade 'Mishap' - which is a deep purple hue. A click-up precise pen applicator allows you to distribute this creamy, mousse-like formula with ease. Click several times to push up the product until it reaches the top and then, once there, one click will be more than enough for bold application. Once applied, this lip product leaves a blotted matte finish - all thanks to its matte emollients with soft-focus texturising powders.


I'll be the first to say that I love a good neutral eye look. It's my go-to! However, this year, we are expecting blues to be taking over your lids - electric blue to be exact!

To start your electric blue dreams, pick up the Revolution Pro Ultimate Eye Look Ocean Treasure Palette. An artistic quad of eyeshadows; two shimmering blues take inspiration from the stunning seas, while a silver and a shimmery nude allow you to add some shine. The navy blue is ideal for a slightly different smokey eye look and the second blue shade - that's shockingly vibrant in the best way, couldn't be more on-trend!

You know how people say putting on your favourite clothes can instantly boost or change your mood? Well that's how I feel when I put on my favourite makeup. Makeup isn't to cover up, it's to show off our personality - and I love how everyone does their makeup in their own unique way! I never leave the house without a tinted lip balm in hand, and just like everyone right now, I love a good dupe!
