Sure, reaching into your makeup bag for the same old neutral palette you use every single day may seem comfortable, but switching up your beauty routine is the key to keeping your look interesting this summer. So, dig out that bold, love-at-first cobalt shadow and coral lipstick you bought impulsively and take it for a test ride. The occasion is now!
While you're at it, why not gain a little beauty inspiration from a few of your fave celebs for the upcoming week? Because we can all use a little inspiration to kick-start the week and step out of our comfort zone, we rounded up the best beauty looks on Instagram from the past week. From silk, retro waves to double top-knots, you'll want to try them all!
MARGOT ROBBIE: RETRO WAVES
Sure, we love a good mixture of cool-girl waves, and smudgy eyeliner, but there's also something irresistible about Margot Robbie's meticulous red lips and flawless retro S-waves. To get her hairstyle, start by curling large sections of freshly washed hair with a large barrel curling iron, starting the curl at ear level. Make sure to apply a heat protective spray before curling to avoid damaging your hair.
Next, use a round brush to gently smooth out your curls, giving them that flawless, shiny texture. Spray an oil formula onto the ends of your hair to ensure a perfectly smooth, no-fly-away finish. Coat your entire head with a layer of hairspray and you're ready for the perfect night out!
CIARA: DOUBLE TOP-KNOTS
While top-knots have been having a major moment in the spotlight lately, we're loving the latest take on the look: the double top-knot. Ciara showed off the trend earlier this week, wearing her hair in two double top-knots at the top of her head, while the rest of her hair sat slightly curled atop her shoulders.
To get this look, star off by parting your hair down the middle of your head with a fine tooth comb. Next, pull a small section of hair from one side of your head up at the ears and secure it into a ponytail, pulling the last strand halfway through, creating a small loop. Repeat on the other side of your head, making sure to place the ponytail high on your head. Next, using the excess hair sticking out from the loop, wrap it around the base of your elastic and secure with bobby pins.
Spray a heat protective spray onto the bottom portion of your hair, and use a medium-sized barrel curling iron to curl the ends of your hair. Keep everything in place with strong-hold hairspray.
CHLOE AND HALLE BAILEY: COLOURFUL ACCESSORIES
Metallic and rainbow hair bands and cuffs added a jolt of energy to Halle and Chloe Bailey's cool-girl look this past week, not to mention, the trend was recently spotted on models at Valentino's Fall 2016/17 Couture show. For an easy way to spice up your beauty routine, take note from Halle and Chloe Bailey, and add multiple gold cuffs or accessories to the front strands of your hair.
HAILEY BALDWIN: DEWY GLOW
It's official: matte skin is out; dewy shine is in. And while dewy skin is nothing new from summer 2016, Hailey Baldwin gave us all the more reason to adopt this glowing look. Use L'Oreal's Lumi liquid highlighter or powder formula on the bridge of your nose, high points of your cheekbones, chin and temples (depending on your skin tone) to achieve flawless glowing skin.
