Uglyworldwide, Bella Hadid and Tyler, The Creator are the faces of this year’s first beauty looks round-up.

Whether a classic look or an avant-garde edge fits your vibe, Doja Cat, Saweetie and Cher have something to offer for everyone.

Buckle up for Doja Cat
When it comes to elevating signature styles for the ‘gram, none can do it quite like Doja. Making her 2022 entrance with an exaggerated French manicure and soft glam eye lid, the star made sure everything was blended to perfection with subtle contour and blush. Tying it all together with a duck-egg cargo two piece, Doja looked every bit New Year’s Eve ready.
FKA Twigs is officially under the Pamela effect
Next up on our beauty roundup is FKA Twigs and her cobalt-hued lids. Thanks to the otherworldly talent of makeup mogul Kabuki, the stars look is transformed into the life and face of the party. Framed by her peroxide pin curls, FKA joins the Pamela Anderson simulation with pencil-thin brows, accompanied by heavenly highlighted brow bones. Opting for a more natural and glossy base, her fluffy lashes and bold eyeshadow palette make the ideal guide to injecting colour into any outfit.
Looking for another bestie Saweetie and Cher?
2021 was absolutely the year of crazy collabs, and at the centre of so many of them was our girl Saweetie. Though we are rarely rendered speechless, the rappers latest partnership with the global icon Cher for MAC Cosmetics had us all gasping with lacquered lips. Showing us exactly what MAC can do, the duo stand together dressed in sparkles and sequins, their faces alone breaking the internet. With Euphoria-esque glamour and red-carpet lips, Saweetie and Cher prove every blonde needs their brunette — and a packed makeup bag.
Dua Lipa came through with the braid
By this point, Dua Lipa should really have her own reserved seat in our beauty round-ups. Offering the perfect solution for those times your hair just won’t cooperate, Dua takes to Instagram with her triple-plaited-pony as she lives her best life in St Barts. With a slicked-back serve, Dua gives well-deserved airtime to her metallic eyeshadow look, which perfectly coordinates with her slashed slip dress. Though this look is definitely suited for the brave, we can’t get over it.
Gold teeth, oversized pearls and Tyler, The Creator
Coco Chanel once said “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off”. This was, of course, before the time of Tyler, The Creator. Besides the fact that the American rapper’s glow has us all begging him to drop a skincare routine, it’s the drip around it that set off a double-tapping frenzy. From the orange fuzzy trapper, to the Lisa Simpson-approved pearls, Tyler proves if you can’t decide on your accessories, wear them all. BRB, going to co-ordinate our chains with our teeth.
Bella Hadid and the beanie bling
Mother Nature is really having her fun at the moment, and the cold and windy scenes aren’t exactly helping any of us achieve a statement look. Enter, Bella Hadid. With a wind-swept blush and a rosy pink gloss, the models beat is well protected under a pastel rainbow beanie. And if you usually get your kicks from stylish hair accessories, Bella solves that for you too, featuring diamond-encrusted decor that clips to the edges of the chunky knitting. We stan any fashionista who can still slay in seasonally-suited attire.
Dominic Fike has a Blue Hair Day
The B might be missing from Dominic’s Balenciaga denim, but it appears to have quickly made it’s way to his buzz-cut locks. In a recent post, the singer-songwriter unveils his new look – giving a whole new meaning to the January blues. There aren’t many people who can cause such a stir from the back of their heads, but then again, the recent revelation that Fike will star in Euphoria season 2 proves that there isn’t much he can’t achieve.
Uglyworldwide proves everything is diamonds
Forever crushing the traditional standards of beauty with her unmatched eye for against-the-grain beats, Instagram sensation and alternative beauty icon Jazzelle closes this week’s roundup with a look as snatched as it is spellbinding. Tracing her iconic pencil brows with sterling-silver beading, the model leaves no diamond unturned. With a sparkling grill encased by ruby-covered lips, a blinged-out wing and black diamond beauty spots, Jazzelle may well have just sparked a new trend.
