This week’s most noteworthy beauty Instagrams offered an ode to all things extra. To begin, neutrals proved to be anything but boring on Gigi Hadid, with her gilded cat eye and over-lined nude lip, as well as Emily Ratajkowski, who took her sun-kissed complexion to its natural habitat: poolside. Also onboard were Selena Gomez, whose makeup artist Hung Vanngo supplied a peach lip with a dusting of tawny-mauve eyeshadow, and FKA Twigs, her gold-touched gaze echoing Hadid’s reflecting finish.
Then came the color. Salem Mitchell opted for lime liner, neon green pulled along the upper lashline as a cool addition to her usual menu of freckled, glossed lips and box braids. Elsewhere, Kelsey Lu’s eyebrows won the double-take game—seriously, everyone else can go home—with a delineated application of vivid turquoise, all the more playful when paired with crimson plaits. Body positivity added to the week’s upbeat ethos, thanks to Tracee Ellis Ross’s relatable workout and Ashley Graham’s baby-onboard dance session. And just to take things over the top, Rosalía’s interminable ponytail, secured for the VMAs, was primed for flipping, posing, and all-around impact.
