We don’t know about you, but our makeup palettes have had enough of being dabbed and swiped in the same pattern over and over again — and as our beauty round-up will attest to, it’s time to make a change. From tinsel-adorned tresses to barely-there brows, the likes of Megan Thee Stallion and Uglyworldwide have taken to the ‘grid to show us the new and improved ways to brighten up your beats.

So if you’re feeling up to the challenge of changing up your look, scroll below and see exactly how it can be done…

Iris Law’s love hearts

As you could probably tell from scrolling down Instagram and TikTok over the past week, everyone has really stepped up their game when it comes to love themed looks. Yet no one has committed to the cause quite like Iris Law, who debuted yet another way to pimp out an ordinary buzz cut. Shaving heart outlines right to the scalp, the overall look is both edgy yet feminine, and adds an added flair of fun to her peroxide locks. Though her face is MIA, the London-based model dons nostalgia-triggering accessories, with a beaded shell choker and exaggerated charm-adorned hoops. It’s giving Lizzie McGuire attitude with a fashion mogul status, and is the ultimate temptation to get a little clipper-happy this weekend.

Uglyworldwide’s no brow business

The way we style eyebrows has had countless transformations over the last decade, and whether you’re a bushy brow lover or a 90s over-plucker, there is one style that is yet to become a fully-fledged trend. As Uglyworldwide’s makeup artist blesses the ‘grid with a closeup of the model’s beat, she unveils an eclectic take on a smokey-eye: fashioned with graphic white liner tracks… and a complete absence of eyebrows. As her brow bone is brushed over with a mattified base, the eyes are drawn into focus while her natural contour gives enough sculpting and dimension to the face. By taking away her signature pencil-thin brow shape, Uglyworldwide delves deeper into her mesmerising against-the-grain looks, while simultaneously radiating an otherworldly and fairy-like vibe.

Saweetie has us green with envy

Not to be dramatic, but our souls quite literally left our bodies when we stumbled upon this selfie, in which Saweetie confirms there is not a single colour that she cannot slay in. Since the start of 2022 she’s been strutting around the colour wheel, with no colour off-bounds from her buzz. But fashioning a fresh flicked-out bob washed with a chartreuse hue, the rapper keeps green as the moment with deep emerald stiletto extensions and a sizeable emerald and diamond cocktail ring. So as to not outshine her statement lid, she parks her face in neutral with a classic wing and warm-toned shadow — finishing with just a hint of shimmer to accentuate the brow. Could this be the best look of hers so far this year? Shit, bitch it might be.

Lizzo’s Galentine’s glamour

Iris definitely isn’t the only one feeling the love in our beauty round-up. Having left no room to breathe with her posts this week, Lizzo showcased this rose-tinted look as she celebrated Galentine’s — and officially had all of us swooning. In a Cindy Lou Who fashion, she twists her candy-floss coloured tresses into two mirrored love hearts, which stand behind a slicked downside part. Moving onto the face, Lizzo keeps Cupid candy shades as the main colour palette, blocking a barbie pink across the eyelids. To make the pink pop even more, Lizzo wears full volume lash extensions, which add depth to the eye look without stealing the spotlight. With light contour and baking, all the highlight is concentrated on the lips, which are speckled with a twinkling texture that makes the look all the more sugar-sweet.

Megan Thee Stallion’s sparkle

The festive season might be dead and buried, but that doesn’t have to mean that tinsel should be too. Showing us exactly why, Megan Thee Stallion took to the ‘grid to show off her tinsel-adorned locks which effortlessly catch the light as she flirts with the camera. Reminiscent of the strobe lights of your favourite night-club, the royal blue and violet streamers offer intergalactic glamour while her beat is covered with an ethereal golden glow. Keeping drama in the details, the rapper adds an extra pop of colour with neon-effect nails covered in blood-red cherries. Pulled together with a classic LBD, Megan shows us how to spruce up any plain outfit to carry you from day to night.

Shygirl goes platinum

She might not be dropping any music just yet, but Shygirl is still delivering heat. Ending our beauty round-up with a subtle sparkle, the English singer offers a more understated approach to a full-face beat. A dusty-rose hue flushes the temples as well as the tip of the nose and apples of the cheeks — a technique which accentuates her cool-ice hair colour and brings sun-kissed warmth into the face. And, if Uglyworldwide’s approach to naked brows was a tad too extreme for your taste, Shygirl gives us a perfect alternative with a swipe of bleach, which keeps the natural framing of the brow while toning down any harsh lines and colours. Mapping out the brow silhouette, her silver piercing gives an added touch of sparkle, the perfect way to achieve a done-up look without even trying.
