5 Celebrity makeup trends we’re tempted to try this weekend

What did celebs such as Kylie Jenner, Amandla Stenberg, and Jennifer Lopez had in common last week at the MTV VMAs? A head-turning, photo-worthy beauty game, naturally. Take a leaf out of their beauty books this weekend and try out these chic looks.

Pixie cuts

Cardi B and Teyna Taylor rocking short ‘dos like a pro


If you have always been tempted to opt for the chop, now is a good time to do it, à la Cardi B and Teyana Taylor—both of whom showed off their daring pixie ‘dos this week. We love how fresh they look, plus it’s a great way to draw attention to the jawline if you’ve got a side profile you’re absolutely proud of.


Bright eyes

Go bold like Amandla Stenberg and or stick to summery hues like King Princess


You don’t need to rep a full face of makeup to show your love for colour, as proven by Amandla Stenberg and King Princess here. Wear a slick of colour over your eyelids for a sprightly look to celebrate high summer. Princess is giving us orange crush vibes with her tangerine eye makeup, and how chic is Stenberg’s metallic smokey eye and matching pink lips?


Super-side parting

Kylie Jenner and Sofia Carson sported side-parted ponytails


If you are a creature of habit and taking off more than one-inch of your hair counts as overly adventurous in your books, try a super-side part spotted on Kylie Jenner and Sofia Carson here to switch up your look. This easy-breezy way of elevating your hairdo requires only a fine tooth comb and hairspray (a hair straightener is optional if you’re going for a sleek straight do).


Spidery lashes

Millie Bobby Brown and Shay Mitchell let their spidery lashes take centre stage


Can you tell that we are so not over this ’60s beauty trend? Its recent comeback made us swoon just a little, but stars including Millie Bobby Brown and Shay Mitchell are proving that it’s here to stay. Transition from a day to night look such as Brown’s no-makeup makeup (standout lashes, natural lippie, clean skin) and Mitchell’s seriously sculpted look (full brows and lashes, contoured angles).


Waist-grazing locks

Ultra-long tresses are still all the rage, spotted on J. Lo and Karrueche Tran


First made popular by Cher in her heyday, the centre-parted, waist-length hairdo is en vogue once more with the likes of J. Lo and Karrueche Tran rocking it effortlessly. Add a contemporary touch to the look with subtle waves instead of Cher’s super straight version. Tip: Ensure your glow is on point to prevent a weighed-down look with this face-skimming hairstyle.
