Bold beauty statements took over Instagram feeds this past week. Parker Kit Hill proved sunset lids pair nicely with blue mascara. Similarly, Aweng Chuol made the case for shimmering eyeshadow, major winged liner, and a plum mouth. Speaking of pouts, Sharon Alexie painted hers a cherry red, accented by a little blush on the nose and face-framing coils.
Awe-inspiring hair made a splash on the ’gram as well. Designer Martine Ali rocked honey-dipped space buns with cursive-like baby hairs as an accent, all to go with her positive reminder in the caption: “When you’re down, you’re actually on the way up.” With freshly done brows, Tracee Ellis Ross, traded in her curls for a long, thick braid, which was the perfect complement to her peachy glow. Then, channeling 1975, Erykah Badu wore a feathery blowout with forehead-grazing fringe, as well as heavy-handed liner and a swipe of lipstick.
Then, Willow Smith enjoyed some outdoor time with a smile and reminded her followers to register to vote, while Elle Fanning showed off “that vote early glow!”—both muses reminding us all that sometimes the best beauty look is to let your voice be heard.
