BEAUTY LOOKS OF THE WEEK
Here is a round-up of our favourite beauty looks from the week so far.
FKA Twigs is our fairy queen
None can pull off the fairy-tale aesthetic quite like FKA Twigs. From her golden locks to her lightly sparkled lids and gem-speckled teeth, the artist serves a Y2K look that is both nostalgic and majestic. Taking to the ‘gram with a back-of-the-cab candid shot, she styles her hair half up and half down, allowing volume while keeping her effortless style. Shrouded in a boho-inspired dress, she keeps her beat natural with lightly feathered eyebrows and a sheer rose gloss — a combination that keeps you looking put together from day into night.
Megan Thee Stallion gives “Sweetie Pie” a whole new meaning
When it comes to committing to a concept, Megan Thee Stallion could show us all a thing or two. Taking the promo for her latest collaboration with Dua Lipa very seriously, she took to the grid with a sugar-sweet headband adorned with a life-size berry-filled pie. Continuing her sweet berry theme, the rapper also flicks a perfectly manicured middle finger featuring cherry accents. Topping off the look with a flawless airbrush-style beat, Megan has us all craving a sizeable slice.
All that glitters is Dua Lipa
Talking of Dua Lipa, it wouldn’t be fair to forget her in this week’s beauty round-up. Dressed in a kaleidoscopic corset by Vivienne Westwood, it was Dua’s daring accessories which made the look for us. Wearing an exaggerated heart pendant fastened onto a chunky chain, the artist throws it all the way back to the 00s where statement necklaces reigned supreme. Matching her jewels with a hue of candy-floss shimmer over the lids, the look fulfils all of our childhood dreams, and has us wishing we didn’t throw away the outlandish accessories of our past.
Gigi Hadid has a hat day
Commanding all of the attention in this week’s round-up, we have Gigi Hadid’s hat. Refuting the claim that less is more, the oversized pink fluffy trapper is fun, charming and thanks to its recipient — undeniably high fashion. While it compliments the pink tones in Gigi’s 70s flare pants and vest, the hat makes a bold statement all of its own. And with a surface area large enough to cover any girls bad hair day, we will be hunting for our very own to wear before summer finally arrives.
Kali Uchis oozes drama from her fingertips
It’s no secret that Kali Uchis is always baked to perfection, but it is our belief that this 3D-printed manicure deserves its very own spotlight. Incorporating silver and champagne shades, the artists nails give an intergalactic vibe, while their unique shape and style offer an editorial edge. Where plain designs can so quickly grow tiresome, this full set really is a gift that keeps on giving — and we are keeping our fingers crossed that our nail techs feel up to the challenge.
Bella Hadid drips in jewels
If we didn’t say it loud enough before, statement necklaces are BACK. While taking some downtime from the runways of Paris and Milan, Bella keeps a little bit of glamour through her drip: including oversized hoops, layered earrings and a hefty-sized pendant. Cast in an unusual shape and design, the pendant is ethereal in nature, and once again proves Bella Hadid to be a true trailblazer within the Y2K movement.
