This holiday season we’re mixing things up, pairing bright metallic eyeshadows with thick liner and equally dynamic lips. Topping our list for this week’s best beauty Instagrams: the cat eye reinvented and layered lengths that bring on the volume.
For the premiere of Queen of the Universe, a new singing competition where drag queens from across the world face off, host Vanessa Williams decided to up the ante on her makeup look with a thick cat eye layered on top of a soft, silver shadow. Makeup artist Laramie transformed the classic look into something more avant-garde with the use of negative space underneath the bottom lash. In her new “Making of a Man” music video, singer FKA Twigs also showed off a sleek, purple-tinted cat eye courtesy of makeup artist Daniel Sallstrom, who kept the line delicate, but still impactful with an unexpected “pop” at the inner corner of the singer’s eye.
As for hair, Brazilian singer Pabllo Vittar took to Instagram to promote her latest single, “Number One,” with a new ’70s-inspired hairstyle full of body. The shaggy cut not only looks incredibly chic, but is extremely versatile when it comes to styling. Meanwhile, rapper Rico Nasty and DJ Shygirl also shared selfies of their sleek new hairstyles, proving yet again a wavy look never disappoints. ‘Tis the season to shine and these beauty Instagrams have delivered.
