We round-up our favourite beauty beats from this week.
It’s Thursday, which means that we are gearing up to deliver a fresh collection of inspo-worthy beauty looks for the weekend. From editorial campaigns to the BRIT awards, the likes of Chlöe Bailey and Olivia Rodrigo have been taking to Instagram to show the latest ways to inject drama and glam into your selfies.
So whether you fancy changing up your hairstyles or innovating your makeup routine, scroll below to see how our favourite faces are doing it…
Doja Cat eyes
There is no one who could pull off this selfie angle other than Doja, and making sure all eyes stay on her, she posts a snap which showcases her cobalt shaded cat eyes. With a silver-toned transition shade, the smokey eye travels through deep sea-blue hues before blending into a blacked-out wing. While the base remains understated, the look proves that the singer can create all the drama even just from the chin upwards.
It’s Bimini, bitch
We’ve all gone through that stage of childhood where we took it upon ourselves to give our Barbies a highlighter-based dip-dye and kitchen-scissor-created layers. Yet on Bimini Bon Boulash, the avant-garde glamour appears to be the pinnacle of risqué high-fashion. Channelling our beloved old-school Britney, Bimini poses in a blue quilted mini skirt and cropped waistcoat, leaving her own unique stamp with blunt levelled layers. The face is effortlessly contoured to the very heights of Hollywood beauty, and her signature Pamela Anderson-esque brows are given focus thanks to her candy-floss tinted fringe.
Hailey Bieber smudges the lines
At the helm of the less-is-more aesthetic, we have Hailey Bieber. Showing us how to incorporate an edgy flair to an otherwise subtle look, she takes to Instagram to snap a smudged wing liner, achieving a natural fox-eye effect. Pouting with a rose nude lip lacquer, the beat is both elegant and timeless, and is the perfect option for the natural-lovers who need an added pop of fun for a day to evening look.
FKA Twigs has dread-head
Serving otherworldly fairy with a hint of 90s grunge this week is FKA Twigs as she swaps her bleached messy curls for bound braids. Dark at the roots, her hair twists into dreads and cascades down her face, which features an impressive set of feathered brows. Topping off the look with layered chunky silver chains, the look is nostalgic but inventive and is yet another offering of the artist’s exploration and expression of her truest form of self.
Olivia Rodrigo’s award winning glam
The clutch Olivia Rodrigo has on our bank accounts is real, and proving exactly why, she shares some BTS images from her beauty look from Tuesday night’s BRIT awards. Olivia paired her maxi sequinned slip with an intergalactic swipe of shimmer over the eyelids, topped with a sharp flick and toned down lashes. Keeping sparkles at the forefront, she also styles glossy lips with dangling diamond cross earrings, accompanied by a set of chunky ear cuffs. Whoever said you can’t make multiple statements at once is very wrong.
Saweetie is icy all over
Another face bringing all the bling is Saweetie, who demonstrates that the only thing that goes with everything is diamonds. Styling her own exclusive merch line, she layers gem-encrusted Cuban link chains over her signature “Icy” logo. Another character of the selfie is her glossy weave, a transformation from the rappers usual close-shaven buzz. And, as more proof that fringes are officially in, Saweetie styles one cut just above the lashes — just as sharp as her blood-red stiletto nails.
Cardi B and her love heart part
Whenever in doubt of fresh ways to change up your style, inspiration is never too far from the Instagram account of Cardi B. Carving a love heart silhouette out of her fringe part, the American rapper and songwriter serves sugar sweet beauty, perfectly framed by curly laid edges. Never one to shy away from a bold look, she compliments the innocent styling with dramatic padlock hoops and a chunky Chanel chain — in-keeping with her outlandish personality. If you’re feeling extra creative this weekend, the look could be yours with just the end of a comb and a pot of hair gel.
Chlöe Bailey serves empress chic
We aren’t sure what has gotten into Chlöe Bailey recently, but with every post on the ‘grid, she’s really not giving many other people a chance. Bringing her unmatched energy to the Mugler x Jimmy Choo campaign, the artist slays in a chain-clad pony and figure hugging catsuit. Exploring Cleopatra-esque detailing, Chlöe is painted with exaggerated wings and an airbrush finish base. Breaking up the dark and daring look, violet hues are incorporated into the centre of the lids. Pur, Chlöe, purr.
