7 Beauty Ideas Powered by 7 Days on Instagram

A perpetual source of sartorial and beauty ideas, Instagram proves to be a window into the dressing rooms of the world’s chicest women. As the elite road-test the latest pamper products and take a daily turn in the hair salon for blow-drys galore documented by social media, the beauty desk notes seven cutting-edge looks from the past seven days to trial now. From bold graphic glossy lids as demonstrated by @Simihaze to cat-eye flicks for daylight hours, consider this your of-the-moment recipe book for makeup ideas that hit the zeitgeist.

#1: H is for Henna

Vogue Arabia’s June issue cover star, Halima Aden, proves the everlasting cool factor of well-applied henna. Go for a contemporary design to uplift monochrome outfits.

#2: 24-7 Exaggerated Eyeliner

@Karenwazenb proves that mega-watt eyeliner will suitably rev up a blouse-and-jeans combo for city-hopping style success.

#3: To the Blow-Dry Bar

Model Taylor Hill, who was photographed by Inez and Vinoodh for the debut issue of Vogue Arabia, is no stranger to regular blow-drys. Here the star makes a case for tousled beach waves teamed with barely there, dewy makeup.

#4: All Hail The Zero-Effort Day Look

If your outfit is high-octane, balance it out with hair swept back in a messy bun and a fresh-faced look that spells zero-effort glamour. Plus, it’s a look that channels Irina Shayk‘s current fashion vibe.

#5: The Bronzed Goddess Effect

All those days spent (safely) soaking up the rays means that it’s time to dabble in your metallic bronze makeup pots. Go for a subtle smoky eye like Emily Ratajkowski and apply a bold line of black kohl on the inner eyelids for high impact.

#6: The Return of the Towel Turban

Sometimes the most chic moments happen when you are in transition between day-to-night costumes. The supermodel selfie du jour is just so. Here Bella Hadid gives us all a cue to tap this look, be it at home or poolside.

#7: The New Bold Lip

In a matte finish, the bold lip is the way to instantly fast-forward your look into the Fall 2017 season. @Ascia proves that you don’t need to wear the look with subtle eye makeup. More is indeed more.
