BEAUTY LOOKS OF THE WEEK
Ariana Grande, Bimini Bon Boulash and Yara Shahidi set the tone in this week’s beauty round-up.

When the news broke that Ariana Grande had secretly wed her real estate beau Dalton Gomez, attentions quickly turned to all things bridal as the internet speculated on what the singer could have looked like on her special day. Well, speculations were put to rest last night as the “Positions” singer dropped a plethora of intimate snaps of her look from the day – and what a look it was. Draped in a custom Vera Wang gown (no one does bridal like Vera) and a cropped and bow-adorned veil, the singer’s makeup was flawless. Crafted by makeup artist to the stars Ash K Holm, the look was infused with dusty rose hues and Ari’s signature cat-eye aesthetic was achieved with subtle eyeshadow as she radiated old school Hollywood glamour. And, what better to accompany the singer down the aisle than her trusty ponytail?
Yara Shahidi sports a braid fit for an ethereal queen
Next up is Yara Shahidi with a braid fit for a queen. The grown‑ish actress racked up the Instagram likes as she showcased her latest feet of hair mastery. The semi-halo braids sweeping across the stars forehead twisted into two plaits as intricate curls and a slick middle part culminated in the ultimate crown braid – honestly, this is all of the hair inspo we are ever going to need.
Bimini Bon Boulash lives to serve another day
It is no secret that Bimini Bon Boulash knows how to turn out a look. The Drag Race runner-up tore through the competition with their avant-garde take on Iris van Herpen and Vivienne Westwood aesthetics and impeccable makeup skills, leading them to embark on a whirlwind beauty and fashion career. And, thanks to this latest look, their rise through the beauty ranks continues. Donning blonde goddess waves and tangerine blusher, the drag queen stepped outside of the makeup norm in true Bimini form with a striking set of icy white lashes.
Wishing we were Bad Bunny’s septum ring
Doing it for all of the hot boys this summer is Bad Bunny. After a slew of IG thirst traps, featuring crop tops and scenes from his wild stint in WWE, the singer has been making it known that he is taking the summer by storm, and his latest post is no exception. With dreamy curls peaking out of a baby blue beanie and untamed eyebrows and stubble on display, the singer’s dainty accessory of choice commanded all of the attention. While you may have thought that septum rings were a thing of the past, they are being reinstated as a beauty staple thanks to Bad Bunny.
Lizzo’s music isn’t the only thing going platinum
By now, we expect great things when it comes to a Lizzo look, and her latest IG post did not disappoint. Debuting a new set of platinum locks, the singer kept her beat sultry and subtle, ensuring that the moment was all about her hair’s transformation. A set of chrome claws and a purple tube dress completed the look, all the while highlighting her new stormy hairdo.
Jhené Aiko does jewel tones (and crowns)
Jhené Aiko took the meaning of jewel tones to a whole other level with her latest look. A dewy base and nude lip provided the foundations for a bold amethyst eye look which encased the entirety of the singer’s eye and featured a pair of fluttery lashes. And, offering unparalleled dramatics was an elaborate crystal crown that looked as though it has been transported straight out of a mythical movie.
Anne-Marie does contrasting colours best
Rounding off our lineup of looks is Anne-Marie. With her signature bubblegum pink bob taking centre stage, as per usual, the singer opted for a contrasting eye look. Lime green and burnt orange were the artist’s shadow colours of choice as her glossy lips and warm blusher acted as subtle accompaniments to the duo of clashing-yet-complimentary looks.
