Cosmetic Trends of 2022

Each year there comes a new trend in the world of cosmetics. And for this new year, it’s no surprise that we have new and old, exciting trends to check out. Take a look and see what 2022 has in store for the cosmetic industry!

Beauty Bars

This may come as no surprise, but Beauty Bars, i.e., shampoo, conditioner, and soap bars are staying on trend this year. That’s because beauty bars are environmentally friendly. They use less water and less packaging as far as production goes. Plus, they’re fairly easy to formulate and are pretty cost-effective since there’s no need for extravagant plastic or glass packaging.

At MakingCosmetics, we have several beauty bar formulas that are super trendy. For example, we have our Hair Shampoo Bar with Amla & Argan Oil formula, and its matching conditioner bar as well. We have a Handcrafted Shampoo & Body Bar formula too!


Bakuchiol is a plant-based retinol-like product that has anti-aging properties and is an effective agent against blemished or impure skin. This 100% natural product has taken over the internet, TikTok to be specific. Bakuchiol is great because it has some of the same results as retinol without some of the harsh side effects.

You can find both retinol and bakuchiol on our website!


This magic ingredient will stay in busy demand throughout the year. It covers a variety of skin care issues and has been a customer favorite for years. It’s soothing, anti-aging and multi-function skin improving properties, has and continues to fortified many cosmetic products on the market

Healthy Lips

Having a whole lip routine is becoming more and more popular. It’s not just applying lip balm and calling it good anymore. Lip scrubs are the first step to healthier lips. Lip scrubs help to remove the dead, dry skin that has accumulated on the lips vs just applying a lip balm, which without proper scrubbing would just sit on top of the dead skin and not get rid of it.We have the perfect lip scrub formula that will help to remove the dry skin off the lips, giving lip balm a much smoother surface to be absorbed into.

After having scrubbed the lips, finding that perfect lip balm or salve is the next step for happier, healthier lips. It’s important to find or formulate a lip balm that has super hydrating emollients and antioxidants. Such as Vitamin E, Squalane, Coconut Oil, and more.

Our Pina Colada Lip Balm formula not only smells amazing, but it’s also formulated with Vitamin E and Coconut Oil for a super-rich, hydrating, and smooth feel on the lips.

Duel-Acting Products

With everyone being in such a hurry these days, a big trend is using skincare products that kind of do multiple things at once. For example, makeup that also hydrates the skin. Or makeup that’s formulated with salicylic acid to help with acne while covering it as well. Nowadays, people care about their skin and want to do more than just cover any sort of flaws. They want skincare/makeup that helps to improve the health of skin.

We have several makeup/skincare combo formulas that will not only make your skin look great on the surface, but also improve the overall health of the skin.
