Textured lengths and vivid lips defined this week’s most noteworthy beauty Instagrams, two playful beauty notes born of summer that will translate seamlessly into the coming autumn months.
To match the vibe of her vacation time, Taraji P. Henson chose a mane of taut braids with loose, air-dried strands left at random for maximum summertime insouciance. Taylor Hill walked followers through her tousled wave routine, as elsewhere, Helena Christensen beat the heat by chopping her waist-skimming brunette hair to the shoulder, celebrating the shift with a swipe of poppy red lipstick. That same brand of look-at-me lip color found fans in Alicia Keys (cherry, paired with stylized edges), Lady Gaga (wet-look carmine), and January Jones (bright coral).
At the same time, Tracee Ellis Ross, Marsai Martin, and Barbie Ferreira marked the merits of luminous skin. And finally, Iris Law went full art school, using her outfit as a jumping-off point for a striped, multi-tonal eye moment—and securing her peroxide pixie with a duo of chocolate bow barrettes. Scroll on for the best beauty of the week, as seen on Instagram.
