6 Summer Makeup Looks for 2022

  • Summer is almost here, complete with sunshine, vacations, and lots of summer events! This new season calls for a few trendy updates to your makeup look to beat the heat in style. We’ve teamed up with some of our favorite makeup artists to help you get simple summer makeup looks this year. Read on to discover the 6 best summer makeup looks for 2022!


    While having fun in the summer sun, remember that just a bit of soft summer makeup goes a long way! Make-up artist Jaleesa Jaikaran shows us how to do a more natural winged liner using a flattering brown eyeliner infused with Argan Oil and a full volume brown mascara. Jaleesa says:
    Start by creating a line with Hyper Easy No-Slip Pencil Eyeliner from the outer corner of the lash line towards the brow. Line the upper lash line, then connect by drawing a line from the top of the line to the lash line. To create a matching lash look, use Maybelline New York’s Sky High Mascara in True Brown. Finish the eyes using Ultra Slim Brow to fill in the brows. Keep the skin simple by using Fit me Foundation, Concealer & Powder for a smooth finish.


    It’s all about defined and sculped eyebrows this summer, so we asked makeup artist David Lopez to show us how he gets that perfect look using our ultra-fine eyebrow pencil and gel brow mascara. David says:
    Start by filling in the brows with short hair-like strokes using Maybelline Express Brow Ultra Slim Pencil. We want the brows to be sculpted and defined but still soft with a fluffy feel, so I’m using Black Brown for a softer finish. I added sporadic strokes in shade Black for a more dimensional feel. I wanted a slightly bolder finish, so I finished the brows with the Brow Fast Sculpt in shade Deep Brown. Bold Brows pair perfectly with a soft Bronzy Eye, so I used all the City Bronzer shades to create a bronzed smokey finish and topped with Maybelline New York’s Sky High Mascara in Brown for a monochromatic feel.
    *David’s Pro Tip: For a more natural shape that slightly lifts the outer corners of the eyes, extend the tail of the brow above where your natural brow finishes for a more angular lifted effect.


    Shiny lips are having a moment, so get ready to show them off all summer long! Maybelline New York created Lifter Gloss Lip Gloss to help deliver sun-kissed glossy lips and a fuller look without the fillers! The breakthrough formula is infused with Hyaluronic Acid to visibly smooth the lip surface and enhance the lip contour. Get ready for hydrated, fuller-looking lips with high shine! Makeup artist Cherish Brooke Hill uses Lifter Gloss, too! Cherish says:
    For these lips, I added the Color Sensational Shaping Liner in color “Divine Wine” to softly contour lips and added Lifter Gloss in shade “topaz,” then added the second color, “moon.”


    Is your light summer makeup glowing? Glowy skin is IN this summer. We asked makeup artist David Lopez to show us how he gets the perfect glow with a bronzing and contouring powder and glow makeup that’s a primer, concealer, highlighter, and BB cream all-in-one. David says:
    For Complexion, I used three shades of Maybelline New York’s Instant Age Rewind Perfecter Glow. Medium on the Cheeks, Deep in the hollows of the cheeks for contour and forehead, and Light under the eyes for brightening. After bouncing into the skin with a sponge, I deepened the summer glow with City Bronzer in the shade 300. To complement the colorful eyeshadow, I used Hyper Easy Brown Eyeliner to create a neutral graphic liner complemented by small crystals. Lifter Gloss in shade Silk left the lips feeling fresh and evened out the tone.
    *David’s Pro Tip: Glowy skin pairs perfectly with colorful, pastel eyeshadows and a glossy lip


    When in doubt this summer, wing it! Yes, winged eyeliner is very on-trend for summer 2022, and Makeup artist Cherish Brooke Hill shows us how she created the look using our all-day liquid eyeliner. Cherish says:
    I started out using Maybelline New York’s Instant Age Rewind Perfecter Glow in Medium Deep 3. Then, the Instant Age Rewind Treatment Concealer was applied to give a nice even completion. I lightly powdered my face and moved on to my eyes. I kept it simple with the eyeshadow because I wanted the focal point to be this elongated eyeliner. I used the Master Precise All Day Liquid Liner in 110. I love this eyeliner because its long tip allows me to get a precise application!


    Fly into Summer 2022 like a trending butterfly with butterfly eyeliner! Makeup artist Jaleesa Jaikaran shows us how to get a Butterfly Inspired Eye Look. Jaleesa says:
    Grab the Nudes of New York palette using a matte shade in the crease of the eye to create depth. Add minimal shimmer on the lid using shades Dreamer or Inspirer according to your skin tone. For that gorgeous blue on the lower lash line, use Color Tattoo Trail Blazer 45 on the lower lash line & blend. Finish with Sky High mascara in Black for a flirty lash. Finish the skin by using the Master Blush Color & Highlight Kit. A rosy nude lip compliments this look perfectly, Super Stay Ink Crayon in Stay Exceptional and top with Lifter Gloss in Silk.

  • Read on to learn more about makeup for summer:

  • What makeup should I wear in summer?

    When the weather is hot, reach for lightweight formulas, like a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. Also, try smudge-free and sweat-proof products to get the most out of your look!

  • How do I keep my makeup from melting in the summer?

    To start, help extend makeup wear this summer with a primer! Try our Fit Me Matte + Poreless Primer with SPF 20 to control shine, blur pores, and extend makeup wear for an instant mattifying effect that lasts up to 16 hours. Then, try using a full-coverage powder makeup like our SuperStay Full Coverage Powder Foundation. This lightweight, long-lasting formula is fade and transfer-resistant, and controls shine with up to 16HR wear.

  • How do you keep makeup on when it's hot?

    When temperatures rise, lock in your beach makeup looks with a setting spray from Maybelline New York. Try Face Studio Lasting Fix Finishing Spray to keep makeup in place for up to 16 hours.

  • What type of foundation is best for hot weather?

    For makeup for hot weather, we recommend a transfer-resistant, water-resistant, and sweat-resistant foundation, like our SuperStay Long-Lasting Liquid Foundation. This lightweight, long-lasting foundation transforms the look of your skin and has up to 30-HR wear.

  • Is cream or powder makeup better for summer?

    Heavy cream formulas are not suggested for the hot weather, so reach for something like Fit Me, our lightweight, oil-free foundation formula with micro-powders to control shine and blur pores for a natural, seamless finish.
