With beautiful weather usually comes beautiful looks on the ‘gram, so, while we were basking in the bank holiday sun, celebrities across the globe took to Instagram to share their beauty looks from the week. From Troye Sivan schooling us in the art of crystal face art and Addison Rae sporting voluminous locks on the cover of Rollacoaster to Nicki Minaj giving us yet another comeback post, head below to see all of the best makeup and hair looks to grace Instagram this week…
BEAUTY LOOKS OF THE WEEK
Crystal-encrusted faces, Prince-inspired Pride beats and voluminous locks: Troye Sivan, Lil Nas X and Addison Rae take the lead in this week’s beauty round-up.
No one does volume like Addison Rae and Rollacoaster
From her cascading curls to her signature fluttery lashes, for Addison Rae’s Rollacoaster Spring/Summer 21 cover it was all about the volume. Sporting a dewy peach base, the TikTok sensation took a break from her usual sleeker locks and debuted a dramatic hairdo that defied the laws of gravity with its volume whilst achieving an effortlessly retro aesthetic as she graced the cover of our magazine.
We wanted to stick crystals on our faces thanks to Troye Sivan
Kickstarting what is sure to the next beauty trend to grace the ‘gram is Troye Sivan and the look from his “YOU” music video. With the singer showing off his effortlessly tousled hair and gleaming skin, the subdued components to his look allowed the main feature to shine: face art fashioned out of crystals. With the icy blue and white jewels meticulously placed in order to achieve an abstract pattern, this look crossed the border into wearable art.
Neon pink was the only choice for Barbie
Nicki Minaj’s post-baby comeback is going from strength to strength as the artist unveils her latest look on Instagram. Turning to her signature colour, the rapper and new mother showed her followers how to do all pink everything correctly as she showcased a slick neon wig that was complimented by a matching lip. Accompanied by a pink Chanel bag and catsuit, the look was a candy-infused dream.
Adut Akech gave us inches
If you are looking for some hair inspo for your upcoming weekend trip to the bars and pubs, look no further than supermodel Adut Akech. The never-ending ponytail that she debuted on the ‘gram this week featured subtle ripples that gave it an effortlessly beachy feel. And, with the model’s golden liner and luminous base makeup also commanding attention, she was a vision of perfection.
Lil Nas X made it “Purple Rain” with his Pride look
As Pride celebrations get into full swing, the TL is getting filled with celebratory pics of all of our beloved celebrities. Our favourite post for far? Lil Nas X and his Prince-inspired look. Dressed in a purple satin two-piece and surrounded by an abundance of rainbow balloons, the “Old Town Road” singer wore a fierce cat-eye look, achieved by merging black and white eyeliners, and a curly mullet. With the picture standing as an example of an icon dressed as an icon, we could not think of a better way for Lil Nas X to celebrate Pride.
Jorja Smith looked as sultry as ever with her auburn locks
When it comes to Jorja Smith, it is safe to assume that she will always turn it out on the ‘gram. And, her latest post was no exception. Looking party-ready, the singer opted for a barely-there beat, meaning that it fell to her fiery auburn braids to provide the dramatics. With her edges laid and lips plumped and glossy, it is clear that Jorja is doing post-lockdown in style.
Kevin Abstract had us reaching for the hair-dye
Rounding off this week’s Beauty Looks of the Week is Brockhampton’s Kevin Abstract. While the band’s lead has been known to sport an array of neon hair colours and Frank Ocean-esque looks, his latest hair debut is one of the best to date. Choosing a bleach blonde base, the singer and rapper added streaks of candyfloss blue in a bid to elevate the look.
