Valentine’s Day is around the corner and these celebs are serving all the looks in the run-up. From effortless cut-creases debuted by Victoria Monét to Ariel-inspired wigs from Doja Cat, we’re tapping into all these looks in this week’s beauty round-up.
BEAUTY LOOKS OF THE WEEK
Shimmering pink cut creases, emerald green nails and bayangs: Saweetie, Duckie Thot and Doja Cat are coming through in this week’s beauty round-up.
Justine, Justine let down your long hair!
At this point, everyone from Kylie Jenner to Beyoncé has rocked this style and we need a tutorial. Slicked back into a tight pony-braid, Justine Skye’s latest hair look is completed with laid edges and auburn and brown highlights, before topping off the whole look with a striking blue glittering eye.
Victoria Monét is giving us Cheetah Girl vibes
“Moment” singer Victoria Monét just inaugurated herself as the fifth member of the Cheetah Girls with this fierce cat-eye. Going for a golden brown eye, the singer topped of the bronzed look with hints of shimmering cheetah prints on the lid. Originally taken as a concept from her Jaguar album, the vision is all about the details as she completes the entire look with glittering skin and diamonds galore.
Meg Thee Stallion came through a unique fresh set
While we’re currently looking at our nails in despair, due to the closure of salons, Thee Stallion came through with some inspo for when we return opting for a green coffin set. Jumping on the current reverse ombre trend with blue, green and hints of yellow, the “WAP” rapper finished the look with some icy rings and chains before captioning the post with “New $et”.
Doja Cat said “What lace?”
Doja Cat has been giving us wig after wig these past few weeks, and now she’s channelling her inner Ariel with this long red look. Adding Bantu Knots to the frontal, the “Say So” singer mixed in some small braids in between, for a fresh outer water mermaid look – minus the wet hair. And of course, the singer added some make-up to her look, as she opted for a subtle blue eye with illuminating white dots.
Bella Hadid is debuting a new look for spring
Let’s be honest, we’ve all at some point these past three lockdowns attempted to turn ourselves into makeshift hairdressers, channelling our inner beauty queen and trying out new looks and styles. But realistically the vision hasn’t always been executed, unless you’re Bella Hadid. Debuting short light auburn hair for spring, the model stepped away from her iconic jet black hair and said new season, new me.
Duckie Thot showed us how to rock the Bayang
This hairstyle took over social media last year and had everyone and their mom reinventing the Barbie look with Got2Be glue and bobby pins in hand. But Duckie Thot showed us how it’s done with this heavenly slicked pony and swooped bang. Completing the look with brown shades and an all-white ‘fit, the model put us all to shame.
Saweetie is living in a barbie world for this baby pink look
Between dropping a hit single with Doja Cat and cinematic videos with Jhené Aiko, rapper Saweetie has been giving us content this past year and is not slowing down. Taking us into her own Barbie world with a baby pink Juicy Couture tracksuit, the “Back to the Streets” rapper channelled this look into her makeup with a shimmering pink cut crease and nude lipgloss. Adding a pop of colour with bold emerald green nails, Saweetie asked in the caption if she had a twin would we still chose her, and we definately would.
