As we delve further into the month, January is proving that it’s all about beauty this year. On Instagram we have been spoilt with close ups from our favourite gorgeous girls as they show off their latest beauty crazes. From Euphoria inspired looks to crazy coloured hair and 3D nail art, we have got it all! So come and get ready with us as we show you how to recreate this week’s best beauty looks.
Beach Baby Waves
Giving us absolute island envy, Elsa Hosk opted to go au natural as she escaped to the sun. Her sandy blonde mane fell effortlessly into salty waves that called for nothing else other than a bikini and some shades!
Main Character Energy
Be the main character with this easy to achieve makeup look plucked straight from Sarah Feingold’s grid. Scraped back hair and a radiant blank canvas make way for this striking purple lip combo. This sought after ombré effect can be created with as little as two products, oh how we love a no fuss makeup look! Firstly, start by tracing around the lips with a dark toned liner to set the look in place, then go in with your main colour on the outskirts of the lips and gently blend towards where your lips meet, finish the look off with a gloss if you so wish and there you have it, main character energy!
We all know animal print is a hit when it comes to fashion but Gen Z It-Girl, Iris Law, is taking the trend to new heights by sporting animal print all over her bleach blonde buzz cut. Daring as ever, Iris never misses!
Elements Of Euphoria
From star of the show, Barbie Ferreria, to artistic creator, Rowan Singh, girls all over the world are giving us their best Euphoria-inspired beauty looks. Featuring dangerously sharp edges, sprinkles of shimmer, pigmented colour, and not forgetting nails to match, it doesn’t get more euphoric than these two looks, does it?
Half N’ Half
Leaving her natural dark tresses in 2021, Dua Lipa has started the new year with an ultra cool half and half hair look. Bleach blonde strands define the face, while minimal peeps of brunette come through from beneath, creating a dramatic black and white effect.
Eyes Up High
With hair up high and little else going on down below, it was all about the eyes in Raihanna Thompson’s show-stopping makeup look this week. Cool-toned blue shades swept up high to the brow bone, while a warm glitzy bronze brought the whole look together. To finish off the look, rainbow coloured gems were placed perfectly in position to catch the light.
When it comes to nail art, Nails By Mei is the best in the biz’. With over 300K followers on Instagram, the New York-based artist experiments with a multitude of patterns, shapes and textures on a daily basis. Her recent playful pink look for Ava Rose Bysiewicz was inspired by strawberry jam and the oozy 3D detailing imitates the condiment perfectly!
Locks on Locks
Letting her natural locks do all the talking, Aduta Kech looked vacay-ready as she accessorised her tresses with a patterned silk scarf. Her sun kissed skin required no product at all, aside from SPF and a healthy pump of gloss on the lips!
Looking pretty in pink, beautiful Belle certainly got the memo! Playing around with a range of shades, here is how you can achieve her look. Go with a bold, attention grabbing pink around the eyes to make them pop, followed by a warm toned shade to accentuate the cheekbones, add a darker iteration on the lips, and a sparkly metallic for the nails. Fluffy earmuffs and an animal print coat are required to complete this look!
