The Best Beauty Instagrams of the Week: FKA Twigs, Raoúl Alejandre, and More

This past week on Instagram was filled with baby bangs, hot pink makeup, and carefree summer joy.

For makeup inspiration, you can always look to Raoúl Alejandre. While ringing in his birthday, the pro, who works with the likes of Rosalía and Ryan Destiny, showed off an asymmetrical sparkly pink makeup look punctuated by a gold tear for extra drama. Also making statements were model Yoon Young Bae, who shared a smoky shadow and bold eyeliner look, while singer-songwriter Cosima sported a hot pink lip stain with her post-braids crimped hair. On the hair front, FKA Twigs proved the mullet is really having a moment by posting a snap of her striking curly blonde shag. Then, model-activist Gabrielle Richardson served up major hair inspiration with green strands and baby bangs, accenting the look with a swirl of blush and glossed lips.

“No weapon of humidity formed against me shall prosper,” wrote editor and model Amy Sall in the caption of a selfie she snapped during the New York City heat wave, her chunky braids and an ethereal glow helping her to survive the steamy forecast. On the note of glow, model Roseline Lawrence radiated under the summer sun at the beach with a head-turning smile and carefree aura. Finally, Zazie Beetz got through hump day with a cheers to not only Gemini season, but late spring, the summer solstice, and Pride month as well. All in all, a beautiful reminder of how many beautiful things there are to celebrate right now.
