If you want to branch out from your usual beauty look this weekend, Savoir Flair is here to help. We scoured the Instagram accounts of our favorite celebrities and models to discover three of the best beauty looks from this past week. From glittery lips to dark-plum power pouts and some serious smoky-eye action, your weekend makeup inspiration starts here.
Go for Glitter
If you still haven’t braved the glitter-lips trend, this snap from Lily Aldridge should inspire you to give it a try this weekend. Made up with none other than Pat McGrath’s sell-out sparkly lip kit (a huge hit with all the celebrities), Aldridge describes her lips as “ruby red slippers”. Teamed with super-natural skin, a hint of mascara, and just a touch of highlight on the inner corners of her eyes to make them appear bigger and brighter, it makes for one magical makeup look and the perfect party pout.
Smoke It Out
When in doubt, smoke it out. Whether you’re off to a fancy dinner or a night out with the girls, a smoky eye always works. Shay Mitchell looks stunning in this dramatic smoky look, which you can easily recreate yourself simply by taking your darkest eyeshadow shade and smudging it into a thick line along your lower lash line. Add to that some thick false lashes and a gorgeous golden highlighter, and you’re good to go. For extra drama, use a shimmery body oil on your neck and décolletage.
Perfect the Power Pout
If you’re short on time or are looking to make a bold beauty statement with minimal effort, take a cue from Alessandra Ambrosio and reach for your deepest, darkest lipstick. In fact, now that we head into fall/winter, dark-plum and dark-purple hues should always be in your beauty bag. Along with natural skin, some subtle falsies, and slicked-back hair, this is a fast and easy way to make your pout stand out. To add some high-shine drama, use a slick of clear gloss over your lipstick.
