Monthly Beauty Roundup: May 2022

June 10th, 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

Skincare-infused makeup

Skincare and self-care have been incredibly popular beauty trends over the past year, but we are now seeing skincare infused makeup take over social media. While makeup with skincare benefits isn’t a new trend, many brands have begun hopping on the hype to offer hyaluronic or mineral infused mascaras, foundations, concealers and more.

Brand Spotlight 

Jones Road Beauty

Jones Road Beauty is a beauty brand by makeup mogul Bobbi Brown. Although founded in 2016, it didn’t rise to internet infamy until this past month. To launch a new foundation, JRB gifted the product to influencers. Although generally met with positive results, a select few influencers didn’t know how to use the product properly, leading to Bobbi Brown herself creating a fun TikTok response.
