The Best Beauty Instagrams of the Week: Justine Skye, Lenny Kravitz, and More

This past week on Instagram was filled with summer braids inspiration, smoky eye makeup, and messages of love.

If you were looking for summer braid inspiration, this past week on Instagram had you covered. Yara Shahidi shared a post of her “final form”: a braided crown by hairstylist SherriAnn Cole-Robertson and a flick of liner courtesy of makeup artist Emily Cheng. Meanwhile, Justine Skye's braided, circular updo by pro Preston Wada was giving full "chic summer Olympics" goodness, while Tracee Ellis Ross topped off her peachy look with a few swoopy plaits.

In the world of makeup, makeup artist Marcelo Gutierrez and muse Barbie Ferreira were a dream team with the Euphoria star donning a little smoky-eyed magic. Speaking of eye looks, Stacey Louidor spiced up the feed with her icy, cobalt blue shadow, silky layers, and an honest caption writing, “sometimes, you just feel like hot sh*t.” Finally, model Dien Kim gave us major lipstick inspo with her coral pout and Chloë Sevigny walked us through her glowy skin and red lipstick makeup routine.

Taking advantage of the warm weather, Ciara caught some sun with her “little sassy sunshines,” reminding us to spend some well-deserved time outside this long weekend. And on the note of sunshine, Lenny Kravitz shared a blissful and inspiring birthday post. “I have never felt better physically, mentally or spiritually and I am ready for more,” he wrote. "Not things or possessions, but purpose. Love is everything... to receive and to give. Love can heal us all and for that I am grateful."
