While we love a dramatic eye statement or a bold new dye job, a nude lip with only a hint of mascara can win us over just the same. At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you feel your best, which is why this week’s best beauty Instagrams offer both festive glamour and fresh-faced looks that pair with any occasion.
For makeup, Megan Thee Stallion posted a quick tutorial on how to create a bold purple eye that’s perfect for dinners and intimate soirées. Meanwhile, model Kristin McMenamy wore four simple braids and a pinky matte lip for a striking look we’d wear any day.
On the hair front, CL showed off a new, eye-catching hair color, this time layering the top with an inky black and keeping the ends bleached blonde. A week after the release of her debut studio album, the rapper was all smiles in her selfie, radiating beauty inside and out. And we’d be remiss not to include Bella Hadid, who toyed with the idea of a new dye job. The poppy red shade is perfect for warming up any complexion and is guaranteed to command attention. Scroll on to see all of the best beauty Instagrams from the past week.
