While this July heatwave we are currently enduring may have you wanting to strip off your clothes and embrace a bare-faced few days, we are serving up some looks that are sure to have you reaching for your makeup bag in this week’s Beauty Looks of the Week. From Alexa Demie proving that she owns champagne-coloured sparkle to daring looks courtesy of Bimini Bon Boulash, head below to enjoy our favourite makeup looks from the week…
BEAUTY LOOKS OF THE WEEK
Champagne shimmer, blue lipliner and gem-encrusted faces: Alexa Demie, Bimini Bon Boulash and Jill Kortleve are the faces of this week’s makeup round-up.
Lizzo serves up some mermaid realness
Our first star of this week’s makeup round-up needs no introduction. Now the official queen of Instagram beauty, Lizzo has been dominating the beat game for a minute, and that isn’t about to change according to her latest look. Donning out-of-this-world slime green braids that tied in perfectly with her exaggerated inner eyeshadow, the singer was giving her fans some serious ethereal mermaid energy this week.
Alexa Demie was a champagne dream
Turning out a look is one thing, but to do so from inside of a giant champagne glass is a different story. But, if anyone could pull it off, it would be Alexa Demie. Dressed in the showgirl crystal two-piece crafted by Akna Store, the Euphoria actress was as glamorous as ever. As for her makeup, a dramatic cat eye was achieved using thick black liner. Turning to a glimmering rose-tinted champagne hue, the star’s base, eyeshadow and lip all exuded warmth thanks to the perfectly picked shade used to create the star’s look.
Gigi Hadid had us green with envy over her subtle eye look
Sometimes, less is more, and Gigi Hadid is here to prove that this week. Letting her dewy base and natural radiance do the talking, her bare skin would easily have been enough of a reason to gain her a place on our weekly beauty round-up. But, flair found its way into the particular look in the form of a grassy green matchstick pattern laying rigidly over the model’s eye. Serving as a pop of vibrancy and contrast in shape used to elevate the look, it was a subtle yet wildly effective makeup choice that firmly secured her place on this week’s list.
Bimini Bon Boulash made blue lipliner a thing
Next up is drag royalty Bimini Bon Boulash with yet another knock-out display. In a trend-setting move, the fashion mogul debuted a bold new look with an electric blue lipliner at its core. Complimented by a boxy eyeshadow creation in a similar hue, the ultra-thin liner lay over a peachy lip, in a display of contrast done right. Completing the look was a tousled blonde mullet and bold “SEX” chocker in true Bimini style.
Hailey Bieber had chrome wings
Hailey Bieber is not usually one for a daring makeup moment. But, in a bid to change this narrative, the model took to Instagram this week with a switched up aesthetic. While her base and glossy lip were bare in true Hailey form, a glimmering pair of chrome wings were an understated yet noticeable step outside of her comfort zone. Seeming to be a set of foil accessories, the eye decoration exuded rainbow hues as the LA sun reflected off their surface. A fun attempt at summer style, we support Hailey’s venture into uncharted beauty waters.
Thanks to Jill Kortleve, we will be sticking gems on our faces for the rest of the summer
Rounding off this week’s list is model and Instagram connoisseur Jill Kortleve. Sharing some BTS snaps from her shoot with Zara, the star could be seen sporting wet-look hair and uber-hydrated skin in a truly beachy display. And, at what at first glance could be perceived as specks of sand, miniature stone coloured gems were sporadically situated across her face in a display of Y2K style brought into the modern-day done correctly.
