And I’m back with yet another carousel of glam-dripping photos that strutted down my Instagram feed this week—from Hailey Bieber’s head-swiveling smudge of blue under the eyes to Deepika Padukone’s perfectly-arched brows, I’ve rounded up 6 note-worth beauty moments my algorithm spotlighted for me in the past week.
I think I can credit my obsession with this photo to the subtle dusting of blue bedecking Hailey’s undereye. I love how the colour blends upward into a cat-eye, and dramatises her look further; and the pop of colour packed into the inner-corners of her eyes decided it for me. It’s almost like the model is channeling her inner Euphoria-enthusiast through this click with her glitter-studded lids. Notice how the ring of pink bordering her lips blends into a lighter shade of the colour toward the inside. Obsessed.
The lit-from-within aesthetic is one of my favourites — it’s no wonder that this one commanded my attention. Deepika is glowing, and her glow is further accentuated by the sheer minimalism of her look. We’re loving the shade of nude sitting atop her lips, and the hues of brown embellishing her lids. And, of course, we cannot sideline the arches — such enviable arches. Deepika concludes the look with a low-hanging, messy bun that plays into the sultriness of her makeup.
Kendall styles her tresses with face-framing, cheek-grazing baby braids reminiscent of the ’90s. This is an effortless ‘do to replicate, and we’re seeing celebrities fashion their looks with varying iterations of these forehead-skimming microbraids. The supermodel’s passion for braids is pretty evident, and we’re loving it. Along with Hailey’s statement-making yellow manicure.
Rihanna isn’t the only one fashioning her bump so well. Sonam Kapoor strikes yet again with another maternity photoshoot, and this one’s grunge — what with her lids drenched in strokes of deep-black kohl. Her tightlined eyes underscore the fierceness of the look and are softened with a little bit of pink on the lips as well as the cheeks. The last one was more Aphrodite-esque. This one’s bolder, and obviously iconic.
There’s nothing we don’t love about this look—from the brushed-out brows to the gloss-laden lids and flushed cheeks, this one embodies the very essence of the word ‘sensual’. Akansha’s pink-hued lips play into the sultriness of this look, and we’re not complaining. She lets her tresses cascade down her face in waves, and it pairs with the aesthetic effortlessly.
I’d seen Riddhima’s jaw-dropping look on Instagram as soon as she’d arrived for the #RaLia post-wedding bash, and I was floored—and not just by her star-studded ensemble. Even though she hasn’t shared a close-up of her look with us, we can spot the smoked-out eyes from afar. It pumps just the right amount of drama into her overall look, doesn’t it? And paired with the softest shoulder-skimming curls, Riddhima looks nothing short of glamorous.
These were a few of our favourite ‘big beauty moments‘, and we’re bookmarking them for the upcoming summer-wedding season RN.
