If you’re looking to branch out from your usual beauty look this weekend, Savoir Flair is here to help. We’ve scoured the Instagram accounts of our favorite supermodels and celebrities to discover three of the best and brightest beauty looks (one of the season’s biggest trends) from this past week. From peacock eyes to purples and blues, your weekend beauty inspiration starts here.
Feeling inspired by the colorful culture of India, where this picture was snapped, Joan Smalls rocked the perfect take on purple makeup this week. This look is simple yet striking and guarantees to transform any outfit, whether you’re in Mumbai or Dubai. Keep your skin and hair natural and focus solely on your lower lash line. Pick the perfect purple shade (we recommend a bright violet à la Smalls for maximum effect, but you can opt for any hot hue), line your eyes, add a slick of mascara, and you’re good to go.
Sofia Richie’s colorful look focuses on the lids instead of the lash line for a different bright beauty effect. Celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta used the Marc Jacobs Beauty teal liner on her eyelids, blending it in to form a stunning shadow. Try this look by smudging the color outwards to create a slight cat-eye effect and, to get the sharp, defined line seen here, try placing a credit card at the outer corner of your eye and using it as a stencil. Team with a touch of blush and a shimmery highlight for the perfect combination.
Color can be used to create a sultry evening look too, as perfectly showcased by Vanessa Hudgens. Makeup artist Patrick Ta created a classic cat-eye look on the star but smoked it out with a black shadow at the outer corners of her eyes. He then used a gorgeous green on her lids and subtly dusted it under her eyes to really make her brown peepers stand out, thereby creating the ultimate stunning smoky eye. It’s the perfect look for an elegant dinner party this weekend.
