Here’s looking at you, 2022! In this episode, we’re dissecting some of the biggest trends, products and ideas that we predict will be everywhere this year – with some help from Allure’s Editor-in-Chief Jessica Cruel. Tune in to hear about the biggest beauty trends that are set to pop off, like dopamine-boosting levels of bright eye makeup and lip-lifting liner hacks that just might put an end to the filler phase.

Plus, we tackle once taboo topics going mainstream – like embracing baldness and the rise of luxury vagina care. Why the phrase “biodegradable beauty” is no longer allowed on, where the Pull Up For Change movement is today and, can an international beauty brand really “cancel” social media (PR play or a legit mental health power move)? We’re breaking it all down!
