Clearly, all it takes is for a popular celebrity to post a cute beauty look with an edible caption and trends are born! Earlier this year, the Tomato Girl aesthetic was in, which was followed by latte make-up. The latest one – which is taking off just as we enter the warmer months – is Strawberry Girl make-up. And yes, it looks just as fresh and juicy as the summer fruit.
Fruity and fresh
The original post that started this trend was by none other than Mrs Glazed Doughnut Skin herself, Hailey Bieber. Responsible for quite a few fads over the last year, her freshest one is all about embracing the shades and shine of strawberries. These include shades of pink and red and glossy skin and lips. She even posted a video on TikTok showing followers how to steal her strawberry style!
You can achieve this fruity aesthetic using Revlon’s range of products. Here’s how to do it.
First, it’s important to prep your skin to ensure a plump, dewy finish. Using a primer that contains shimmer particles will give you a glossy sheen. Then, instead of a full face of foundation, you only apply dabs of concealer where you need it, blending it well.
After this, it’s time to focus on the flush. You can use more than one to get the desired shade and intensity. Afterwards, give yourself a spritz of face mist to amp up the radiance.
For this trend, your eyelids can be left bare or, like Hailey, you can add a bit of bronzer. She also creates some faux freckles on her nose and cheeks, which can be done using a brown eyeliner pencil. A small flick of brown eyeliner and some mascara are all that is necessary to complete your peepers.
Lastly, it’s time to accentuate your lips. Use a lip colour in a reddish-pink hue with a wet-look finish. Alternatively, you can use a lipstick topped with gloss or a sheer red gloss to finish it off.
