Monthly Beauty Roundup: March 2022

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

Filter picks my makeup 

A popular trend this month has involved creators using multiple beauty filters to decide their makeup. Using eyebrow, eyeliner, lipstick and contour random-generator filters, users have been creating fun, quirky makeup looks. 

@brennaamichellee i love the way it turned out ? #makeuptrend #trendingsounds #trendingmakeup #trendingfilters #filters #SchickAsks #CloroxMistChallenge #viralfilters ♬ original sound – &lt/3

@hollymurraymakeup Didn’t turn out very good ? Ib: @natashajanewood #filters ♬ Light Switch – Charlie Puth


A general trend within the beauty industry has been ‘clean’ beauty. As part of this, many creators have begun rejecting beauty filters that alter their own face shape. Using the “Smokey Eyes” filter and the “my taste in music is your face” sound, users are showing themselves with the glamorous filter before transitioning into their natural face.

@fishermanlarry47I want everyone that sees this to do it <3♬ my taste of music is ur face – m

MAC Cosmetics: MACStack Mascara 

To launch its new MACStack Mascara, MAC gifted influencers the new product. This resulted in organic posts from huge beauty creators.

Clinique UK: Black Honey 

Clinique’s cult favourite lipstick Black Honey became TikTok famous thanks to the 90s nostalgia revival. Using celebrity ambassadors and influencers in TopView and In-Feed ads, Clinique directed viewers to their website to purchase the newly restocked product.
