Beauty transcends time, whether it is a makeup pattern, hairstyle or nail trend, one thing we can all agree on is that it never goes out of style.

With the internet now, trends live forever as they are now enjoyed across continents and can be improved on with the creativity added by others. TikTok remains a great resource that brings beauty trends from different aspects of life into one server. Trends you have never thought of trying, makeup and hairstyles you didn’t think existed suddenly seem so appealing. Let’s get into it.

Soft girl aesthetic
The Soft girl aesthetic is a look that is all about femininity, giving the illusion of sweetness, and innocence. Formerly attributed to the Korean beauty standard through TikTok, the soft girl look has become popular globally.

When trying to nail the soft girl look, all you need are your essentials, because the main idea behind this is to look like you woke up that way with next to no makeup on.
This look doesn’t require so many makeup products but at the same time, it does. You’ll need a brow gel, some blush, a little concealer for under the eyes, a light eye shadow shade, your eyeliner, and a lip gloss or lipstick that matches your lip colour. Now how to apply.

Using your brow brush, apply the brow gel by brushing your eyebrows in a diagonal manner. Then using a brow pencil, you can add a little body to your brows. Not too much though.

Dab the concealer under your eyes until it has blended in fully
When it comes to blush, many prefer to apply the blush from their cheek running across their nose to the other cheek. This brings/ gives a cupcake princess feel to it.

For the eyeshadow pick a colour that will give you a doe-eyed look
Do not go bold while applying your eyeliner. Light is right. If you want it winged go ahead. Just avoid it being too serious.

Go crazy with the lipgloss.

Dark feminine aesthetic
The Dark feminine aesthetic look is a look that portrays the bold, Strong, sexy and fierce aspect of femininity. It draws attraction to the face. It gives off a vibe that says “hey, I am not one to be messed with”.

This look includes smokey eyes, a well-contoured face, perfectly arched brows, false lashes that make a statement but at the same time are subtle or heavily mascaraed lashes, a bold lipstick or not… your choice, a little bit of highlighter, and a winged eyeliner.
Note to perfect this look, your should switch out your full coverage foundation for a light one.

Soft glam aesthetic
When you think of soft glam the first thing you picture is radiant skin and a bright smile.

Soft glam is makeup without harsh lines, which means unlike full coverage makeup, soft glam can be achieved without excessive contouring, bold lip and eye colour.

To pull this off, you’ll need:
Foundation: the foundation should be applied to cover blemishes or apply it just where you need it to be, then blend it out nicely.
Eye shadow: when picking an eye shadow colour for soft glam, go nude and by that I mean the colour. What you are trying to achieve with this is a nude smokey eye. You can also pick a dark shade from your eye shadow pallet to use as your eyeliner instead of an actual eyeliner. the goal is to go subtle but still stand out.
Highlighter /blush: it is advisable to apply these with your fingers so as to ensure that they blend in perfectly.
For your brows, use a brow gel/ mascara wand to brush your brows to give them a natural but full look.

Thinking of where to get the best beauty ideas, we recommend TikTok for all your beauty trends and not just because you can find them all in one place. But because they also come with video tutorials that ensure you pull them off perfectly.
