Summer doesn’t officially start until June 20th, but—according to our Instagram feeds—fashion’s favorite faces have already welcomed the warmer weather. For the NYX Arabia Face Awards, Kuwaiti fashion influencer Ascia AKF reached for an edgy, blue lipstick (reminiscent of the bold cerulean lipstick seen at Gucci’s 2017 Resort show last week), and is a look that will inspire anyone in a makeup rut. Meanwhile, singing sensation Jennifer Lopez was spotted wearing a slick of bright red lipstick this weekend—proving that a pop of color is all you need to turn heads.
Zendaya, Myriam Fares, and Alicia Keys adopted the bigger-is-better mentality by way of their natural curls. Hair chameleon Zendaya abandoned her usual sleek topknot and opted for unfussy ringlets; meanwhile, new mom Myriam Fares was spotted on vacation sporting larger-than-life curls that she adorned with a pair of equally oversized sunglasses. With her fresh face and fuzzy ringlets, Alicia Keys made a case for natural beauty while out and about in London.
Elsewhere in the English capital, 18-year-old actress Elle Fanning made sure she was ready for Gucci’s after party with a smattering of gold glitter sprinkled underneath her eyes.
Over on the French Riviera, Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin kept her cool while gearing up for the Monaco Grand Prix by sporting a backwards baseball cap over her sleek chocolate tresses.
Television host Diala Makki showcased her radiant complexion and glossy raven locks in London while she posed for a quick selfie against a backdrop of bright, pretty flowers that were reminiscent of the petals used to decorate Rihanna’s neat topknot across the pond in New York.
With the temperatures starting to climb, we’ll be taking a page from model Stella Maxwell’s beauty book for carefree, tousled hair that actually benefits from the humid air outside.
