As we scroll through our Instagram feeds we are constantly inundated with Instagram beauty looks that we are desperate to achieve but seem impossible to recreate. But with so many special products out there and a whole lot of inspiration, how hard can it really be? From dewy sun-kissed glows to dramatic stand-out looks, we’re here, alongside Instagram’s best of the best to show you how to achieve your next makeup look.
Hailey is the queen of natural glam and once again this effortless look perfectly accentuates the beauty of her natural features. To recreate Hailey’s look in your own way, play around with natural hues and creamy textures that will simply elevate your organic beauty. This is how to master the ultimate no-makeup makeup look like Hailey does so well.
You can’t go wrong with a smoky eye and this easy to achieve look can be as subtle or dramatic as you like. Follow Jourdan’s lead and take your eyeliner around your eyes and right up high, followed by a dark shaded shadow and blend, blend, blend to create the ultimate smoky effect.
Taking to Instagram to debut her recent makeup look, Elsa treated us to a smoking hot display with a sexy red lip. With her blonde locks hanging softly and her fair skin the perfect makeup base, this look was simple but ultra-effective. While a red lip may seem daunting and the bold pop of colour isn’t for everyone, there are many ways to pull off a red lip successfully. Choose a sheer shade that you can layer on to suit your personal taste, alternatively try experimenting with a more neutral-toned red that could appear a little less intense than Elsa’s does here.
If there is one thing that the models of Instagram have taught us over the past 2 years it’s that all you really need is a little bit of blush. If we could only use one item of makeup for the rest of our lives it would hands down have to be blush. This multi-purpose product brings life to your face with a healthy flush of radiant colour. Swipe across the cheeks, lips, nose, and eyelids for a (no damage) sun-kissed look.
Gaga’s latest look for the premiere of her new movie, House of Gucci, was just as dramatic as the story itself. It was all about the eyes with this makeup look as smoky black and glittering purple circled around her optics giving an extra dose of height and shadow. Don’t be afraid to get busy with colours as you can achieve great results just like Gaga.
Cindy’s look is all about the glow. That dewy appearance that we all so desperately crave, particularly in the winter months when our skin is feeling grey and a little bit dull, is surprisingly super easy to achieve. Take a few staple products and use them to your advantage, highlighting the inner corners of your eyes, on top of the cheekbones, and down the nose to really give yourself that glow. Or drench your face with dew, because why not?!
We all want a bit of bronze to give us that kissed-by-the-sun look and Tashi’s nighttime glam shows us just how to give our faces an all over flush. A natural brown tone can be taken all over the face to add warmth and dimension while setting the base for those extra drops of evening glamour. Here are the best bronzers to add to your makeup collection.
Dua Lipa’s latest look is modest and classy, hitting the nail on the head of sophisticated elegance as per usual. Not too much but not too little, her slicked-back hair sits back, letting her face do all the talking. Pinky nudes are spread across the high points of her face, while hints of metallic sparkle add dazzle and glamour. This versatile look is great for any occasion.
