The Best Beauty Instagrams of the Week: Raveena, Jari Jones, and More

This past week on Instagram was filled with summer makeup inspiration, fiery red hair looks, and empowering messages.

This past week on Instagram served up a plethora of summer makeup inspiration. Take, for example, singer Raveena who rocked bedazzled brows, gray-streaked pigtails, and terra cotta hues on her lids, cheeks, and lips to monochrome effect. Sporting slicked back strands and a cascade of waves, Yara Shahidi wore a more muted look with a wash of pink eyeshadow and classic winged liner, while Gabrielle Richardson embraced a rosy glow and chunky box braids in the sunlight.

As scrolling continued, there was red hair in spades. SZA showed off a silky, shoulder-length blowout with winged liner and nude lipgloss, and then a regal Ciara enjoyed the outdoors with her auburn mermaid waves. Similarly, Kelis got up close and personal with her crimson faux locs, while reflecting on her journey. “You ever look at yourself later and think, 'I didn't really appreciate how fresh that looked'? We are our toughest critics,” she wrote in the caption. As for model Jari Jones? She served up regal beach realness in her braids while offering an empowering message: “If you do not live in a fat femme body, please stop telling us what we need to wear, what will look better on us, or what surgeries we should get or shouldn't get."
