7 Spring Beauty Looks to Try Every Day This Week
Even the most creative makeup and hairstyling junkies occasionally suffer from a bout of beauty block. Just follow this lineup for unexpected looks that’ll keep you inspired through the week.
This is the perfect hairstyle for a Sunday because, well, it’s really easy. In fact, if you have even just one bobby pin on hand (there has to be one floating somewhere in your purse, right?), it could take you fewer than five seconds.
Cat Eye and Red Lips
Monday hack: Spend five extra minutes on your makeup and no one will be able to tell that you overslept and didn’t have time to wash your hair. A bit of medium- to full-coverage foundation, red lips, and a flick of liquid liner will fool everyone into thinking you’re just as put together as you purport to be on your Instagram feed.
Use a hoop-shaped clip to pull back the top section of your hair starting just above your ears. The best part about this look is that it can be a cool way to flaunt your natural texture—and the ring is an fresh alternative to the traditional clamp.
With warm weather approaching, your days in cozy sweaters are numbered. Take advantage of the weather during this transitional period by folding your ends into a turtleneck for a faux-bob effect. Bonus: It’s also an excellent way to hide split ends.
Deep Side Part
Even if you’ve been rocking the same center part since middle school, give this one a chance: A deep side swoop is flattering on almost everyone. It won’t look sloppy if you blast your roots with dry shampoo and texturizer to give it some hold, but honestly, a little slop can be sexy in the hair department.
Matte Red Lips
A matte red lipstick is the perfect Friday face brightener during the day, and as Rihanna demonstrates, it pops just as much at night. We recommend a liquid formula for extra-long wear.
Natural but Enhanced
For Saturday night, an amped-up version of your natural daytime look is always safe because you pretty much know how it’s going to look after a few hours. (We can’t say the same about a dark smoky eye.) Palermo’s makeup is the perfect example of this; she looks like herself—just slightly more dramatic.
