Monthly Beauty Roundup: April 2022

April 26th, 2022 by

Every month we round up our favourite ads, campaigns, trends, and creators from the social media beauty industry. So, who’s been busy in the beauty world this month? 

Trend spotlight

Beauty through the eras 

Continuing from the nostalgia trend, beauty creators have been showing beauty trends through the eras. Starting from the popularity of the TV show Pam and Tommy, 90s inspired makeup began taking over TikTok. From here, a beauty filter showing makeup from the 00s, 90s, 80s, 60s and 50s has begun trending with users asking their audiences which era they suit best.
