Our Instagram Beauty Roundup: 12 of the Best Looks This Week

Texture is something that takes makeup to an entirely new level, somewhere that you can’t get with color alone. Some of our favorite beauty looks from Instagram this week use texture in a way that inspires us to try new things, and maybe step outside of our comfort zone a little bit.

Another common theme from these amazing Instagram photos is the pairing of a vibrant eye look with an equally exciting lip. No, you don’t have to wear a subdued nude lipstick if you’re wearing color on your eyes, and vice versa. One of the best parts about makeup is creating a cool color story, and you’d be surprised which colors can really complement each other. Of course, you can always just take a look at a color wheel and choose opposite colors if you’re stumped on which ones go together.
