Best celebrity beauty moments of 2022

Best celebrity beauty moments of 2022
The best celebrity beauty moments of 2022 included some show-stopping red carpet appearances as well as some more personal moments.

While the previous couple of year’s have been relatively quiet where red carpets are concerned, 2022 proved they were back. 

With them, the glitz, glamour and gossip that keep news cycles turning.

But this year’s beauty moments weren’t just about big events. Social media is still the place to display your beauty and trend nous, and many red carpet moments were aired on Instagram before the star had even left their hotel en route.

Some moments spawned unlikely beauty trends – think Julia Fox’s exaggerated eyeliner – while some – Hailey Bieber’s repetitive ‘glazed’ skin – were engineered to sell product.

J Lo gets married

Jennifer Lopez’ hair this year (and every year) could have inspired a story all of its own. But in terms of highlights, J Lo’s simple and classic look for her surprise midnight Las Vegas wedding to Ben Affleck was top of the list in our books. The half-up do was paired with an Alexander McQueen dress the star revealed she had been ‘saving for so many years’.

Florence Pugh at Venice Film Festival

It might be a little far to say this is revenge dressing at its finest, but Florence Pugh rising above the surrounding drama of the Don’t Worry Darling premiere in Venice with several stunning looks certainly made our jaws drop. Keep an eye out for Pugh in the coming year, we feel her star is still ascending.

Julia Fox’s eyeliner

We started out finding Julia Fox’s exaggerated liner looks overwhelming, but they really grew on us, and everyone else. The look has developed into a key trend this year, so you can’t deny her influence. This version was actually applied by famed makeup artist Pat McGrath.

Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala

A moment for the dress, Marilyn’s of course. Then another for Kim’s hairstylist Chris Appleton, who took the Kardashian’s hair from deep brunette to platinum blonde over a matter of hours the day before this appearance at the annual Met Gala in New York where she donned one of the most famous gowns in the world.

Zoe Kravitz at the Oscars

A master of the modern mix, Zoe Kravitz always brings something new to the red carpet when it comes to fashion and beauty. However we also can’t go past her nod to yesteryear for this year’s Academy Awards, where she paid homage to actress Audrey Hepburn with a micro-fringe, flicked out eyeliner, pastel Saint Laurent gown and a collar of diamonds.

Gigi Hadid’s sparkling eye look

Gigi Hadid isn’t afraid to play with her beauty look for special events. She tapped make-up artist Patrick Ta to apply these shimmering sequins to her eyes and add a glamorous pout of red to finish the look for an outing in June.

Lizzo at the VMAs

We can’t say we’ve ever really wanted to wear blue lipstick, but Lizzo really made a case for it during an appearance at the MTV VMAs in August, trying out a lip ring in the process. This was one of three vibrant makeup looks she wore on the night.

Dua Lipa at the Grammys

Chris Appleton might just have been the busiest hair professional in the celebrity game, given his work with J Lo, Kim Kardashian and Dua Lipa this year. This 90s inspired look Dua rocked for the Grammys, paired with re-worked vintage Versace, was throwback perfection.

Hailey Beiber’s tonal look

Yes, it’s Hailey again. But this year she has been inescapable in the beauty realm and this monochromatic brown look was just one of many highlights.

Rita Ora opening the Rugby

Rita bought the party to the opening ceremony of the Rugby World Cup in Auckland in October. The UK star’s razzle dazzle was accentuated by local hairstylist Michael Beel and makeup artist Lochie Stonehouse.

Rihanna’s pregnancy announcement

While she made a serious style and beauty statement out of her pregnancy carrying her son, who she gave birth to in May, it was her initial pregnancy reveal that set the tone for the months to come.

Kaia Gerber at the Met Gala

We do love a big hair moment, so Kaia’s voluminous curls for the biggest fashion event of the year, the Met Gala, were the highlight of a very glamourous night.
