Can you believe that 2022 is almost over? I know, with less than a month to go, there’s no better time to reflect on the year than now. If you’re reading this, then it’s safe to say you love either makeup or fashion or both—that makes two of us. For many people, myself included, we can get stuck in the same routine, especially when it comes to makeup. Make no mistake that it can be hard to part ways from those holy-grail products we swear by, but there are so many out there that you’ll be missing out on if you don’t expand your horizons. We’re not saying to ditch everything in your makeup bag, but be open minded to the possibility that your next favorite makeup product might be in this article.
And nobody knows more about makeup than beauty editors, which is why we asked them for the beauty product that defined 2022 for them. For some, it was volumizing mascaras, while for others, it was bold eyeliners. Regardless of the pick, these beauty products are good to keep in the back of your mind whether you’re shopping for yourself this holiday season or looking for a gift for the makeup lover in your life.
