As we begin 2022 and prepare for new trends and fresh looks, it’s also good to reflect on 2021. Last year brought a lot of exciting makeup launches and products that helped us debut our faces after months of being behind a mask. Cosmetic surgery experts at Tajmeeli used Google search data to find the 160 most searched beauty products across almost 30 brands.

According to the research, lipstick was one of the most searched beauty products in 2021. Here are some of the breakout beauty searches of 2021.
