This week, we have been spoiled on our socials with some incredible beauty looks. One thing these makeup creations all had in common (other than being gorgeous) is that they were all focussed around the eyes, whether that be by using contouring techniques, graphic liner or bold colours. We wanted to give you a rundown of these looks, with some top tips on how to achieve them yourself.
For her recent music video with The Weeknd, twigs rocked this mesmerising makeup look. With her eyes taking centre stage, twigs emphasised this feature by using a silver graphic liner and adding gemstones around her brow bone. She kept her skin glowy and natural, really letting her eyes do the talking.
Striking a smouldering glare, you can’t help but be drawn into Bella’s dark smokey eyes. To achieve a look like Bella, make sure to place a tacky eye pencil on your lid to ensure you get a dark consistent shade that stays in place.
Megan Thee Stallion
We can always rely on Thee Stallion to serve looks, and this week was no different. The star rocked a silver smokey eye with a glossy lip as she hit the stage. This look would be perfect for a fun festive night out, and we will definitely be using this as our inspiration!
Isamaya kept her look understated whilst achieving a glossy glistening appearance. This makeup is so easy to recreate, just make sure you have a shimmery champagne shade for your lid, liquid eyeliner to achieve a cat eye and a nude gloss.
Sometimes, you just need to stand out from the crowd, and with a look like Christina’s, that you will. This electrifying hot pink shade makes Christina’s blue eyes pop whilst offering a fun camp look.
Contouring doesn’t have to be exclusively used to carve out your cheekbones, using contour shades on your eye socket will have your eyes standing out more than ever. Similarly to the technique used when contouring your face, place the dark shades where the light wouldn’t hit your eye, whilst placing a bright white shade where the light will hit. To accentuate your eye shape further, create a black cat eye with liner the way Gabbriette has.
