Should we credit Alia’s glow to Ranbir? Is Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams going to un-bleach her eyebrows any time soon? Though we don’t have any of these answers at our disposal yet, we’re spotlighting the element of beauty that ties these questions together. This week’s carousel is the right amount of minimal and extravagant—and that’s how we like it.
Newly-married Alia’s aesthetic pays homage to the miracle of blush—with rose-tinted stamps sitting on either sides of her cheeks, migrating to the bridge of her nose, and ascending to the sides of her eyes. Her cheeks sport a smattering of freckles as well as a lit-from-within glow courtesy of highlighter, and her lips and lids boast a hue of baby-pink—these elements, in conjunction with her thicker-than-ever eyebrows and a low-hanging ponytail, tie the look together effortlessly.
Remember how Maisie Williams’ brows descended upon her face in excessive degrees of discretion at the 2021 Met Gala? The Games Of Thrones actress replicated the look at 2022 Met Gala—not without a cat-eye gracing the eyes, a finger-wave ‘do draped over her forehead, fanned-out lashes, and dabs of pink on the lips.
Sonakshi has been hinting at something on Instagram, and it has resulted in a carousel of photos sashaying down our feeds—this one in particular. She stuns in peach-pink hues on the lids, lips, and cheeks, and sports brushed-out lashes that accentuate the subtlety of the look. The Dabangg actress’ ‘do features a cascade of curls—a change from her everyday look. And her manicure, bright and colourful, contrasts her barely-there makeup effortlessly.
RiRi’s look is a lesson in extravagance done right. The to-be-mother’s heart-shaped lips are dripping in berry-red, and her eyes are drenched in hues of silver punctuated by sharper-than-ever flicks. Chunks of hair sprout out of an all-white headwrap in cheek-grazing curls on either sides of the face, and her nails sing to the praises of minimalism.
Kiara’s versatility isn’t just limited to her profession. The actress dabbles in minimalism as much as she plays around with extravagance, and this one’s an example of the former. She strikes a pose in all of her all-natural glory—with the rays of the sun shining the spotlight on her golden-brown hair.
J’Lo’s glitter-laden look is head-turning—from her rose-flushed cheeks to her gloss-drenched lips, this one’s stunning. But it’s her hair that commanded our attention. The On The Floor singer has swapped her golden-blonde colour for a cool-toned brunette as her hair cascades down her shoulders in waves, and it’s safe to say that the change does her justice.
Diana’s glam-dripping updo is the most riveting element of her look. The sky-high bun is complemented by a streak of kohl along the waterline, dustings of highlighter on the cheekbones, and a glossy-pink on the lips.
