With January taking its sweet time as always, you’ll be pleased to know the weekend is almost here. Though the plummeting temperatures pose a huge threat to otherwise statement outfits, our roundup prove that with the right powder pallets, your entire look can radiate from the neck upwards. With the likes of Kali Uchis, Iris Law and FKA Twigs posting the look-book of our dreams over the past seven days, head below to see the faces that brushed their way into this weeks round-up.
BEAUTY LOOKS OF THE WEEK
Love heart locks and contrasting colours: Dua Lipa, Kali Uchis and FKA Twigs take the lead in this week’s round-up
Dua Lipa’s love heart hair
Proving that you don’t need to have a full-beat face to firm a beauty look, Dua Lipa basks in the sun, matching a hot-pink two-piece with her bleached part — printed with yellow and orange hearts. Giving us a welcomed throwback to the blonde moments which defined the start of her Future Nostalgia era, Lipa revisits the blocked-bleach-bob with a twist, vouching that blondes do have more fun on a whole new level.
Barbie Ferreira lets us know contrast is key
Lets be real, the cast of Euphoria have pretty much become a walking look-book for Gen Z and beyond. From risqué uniforms to diamanté-studded eyeliner, the looks of last season took everyone’s wardrobes on a ride. Yet never one to tread the lines of a trend too long, Barbie Ferreira serves us a fresh dish of inspo — taking to the grid primed with primary colours. Contrasting cobalt hues with a sunflower yellow that flushes right up to the brow, Barbie radiates the essence of bold and beautiful, coordinating her coffin nail tips for good measure.
FKA Twigs gets juicy
Mercury might be in retrograde as of today, but that appears no issue for our Capricorn queen, FKA Twigs. Posting a video teasing the sugar-sweet sound of her upcoming mixtape, it was the look which commanded all the hype for us. Dusting her eyelids with chocolate-gold pigment, she keeps a neutral base — letting her eyes and 90’s-nude glossy lips do the talking. Dripping in Juicy Couture, a fluffy fur coat accessorised with an exaggerated chain, FKA Twigs teaches all of us how to incorporate Y2K flair with an old-school edge.
Long live Kali Uchis’ lashes
Sad girls love Kali Uchis, and in preparation to deliver what may well be the best visual of the year, she took to the ‘gram to give us a close-up of her effortless glam. Giving us classic Gatsby energy, her fiery laid edges frame her softly-contoured face. With a subtle cut-crease, complimented by a swipe of champagne shimmer, her beat is the perfect exemplar of the less-is-best aesthetic. Keeping the face centre stage, the artist finishes the look with clear statement earrings and a diamond bustier, leaving us totally in awe and feeling… poor.
Iris Law sports a leopard print lid
Did we hear you say new trend? Ending our round-up from where we kicked off, we bring to you more hair inspo, printed to perfection. The only thing we check more than our calendars, is whatever design Iris Law has had blended into her buzz, so you can imagine our delight when this leopard-inspired look graced our feed this week. Making Miley Cyrus herself do a double take, Law incorporates black hues into a moon-lit smokey cat-eye, serving grunge licked glamour in excess, all the way down to her barbie pink stiletto nails.
