Move over, beauty influencers – Netflix is now the hottest source for all things beauty-related. Some of the best series and movies on Netflix have inspired fresh looks to revamp everyone’s beauty routine in 2021. Not even celebrities are immune to the influence of these shows – for instance, there’s Gigi Hadid, who recently colored her naturally blonde hair to mark her return to the runways. The new mom is now sporting bright ginger tresses, which are said to be inspired by The Queen’s Gambit. If you’re thinking about upgrading your look for the upcoming summer season, take a cue from the streaming service’s heroines, and look amazing with these Netflix-inspired makeup ideas.
Look 1: Bridgerton
Apart from the breath-taking fashion inspired by the Regency era, Bridgerton’s makeup look has also caused a buzz online with its focus on creating a fresh and natural glow. To get Daphne Bridgerton’s glowing complexion, the show’s makeup artist, Lynda Pearce, recommends that women should focus on skin care to make the skin look soft and dewy. Next, a light foundation or tinted moisturizer should be applied to allow the skin’s natural complexion to shine through; then a light coral cream blush should be applied on the cheeks for a natural flush. Influencers love this look for Zoom calls or the beach: just add summer makeup and beauty essentials such as a tinted lip balm, face mist, and mattifying skin cream for a makeup look that withstands heat and humidity.
Look 2: The Queen’s Gambit
Anya Taylor-Joy is the current darling of Hollywood. The Queen’s Gambit star has recently won a Golden Globe for her role in the Netflix mini-series. Her character, Beth Harmon, has also become a major inspiration among fashionistas, as her looks from the 50s and 60s look current enough to be worn today. Beth’s makeup look, which consists of winged eyeliner, rosy pink lips, and pink blush can also work for the hot summer months. Just choose a waterproof eyeliner, and use a saturated pink shade for the lips and cheeks for maximum impact.
Look 3: Dear White People
Sam from Dear White People, and her friend, Joelle, always look impeccably made up, even while sporting casual looks. The two make sure to have flawlessly matte skin, groomed brows, and minimal lip color whenever they go out, and this look works perfectly for summer. To get the look, use a makeup primer to minimize pores and shine; then apply a mattifying foundation. Fill in brows with a pencil, and set brow hairs with brow gel; then apply a matte lip balm or a lipstick that’s almost the same color as your lips.
Upgrade your makeup look and get ready to look flawless during the hot summer months. Be inspired by the heroines of these Netflix shows, and don’t be afraid to experiment to see which makeup look will suit you best.
