HOW TO DO: CHROME BEAUTY

There’s a new look in town, bby. It’s fun, shiny and taking us to the year 3000 🚀 Chrome beauty, AKA the celestial aesthetic, is taking metallics and giving them a new lease of life. Instead of just using them on your eyelids or highlighter points, this trend is asking us to shimmer alllll over. That means lips, under eyes, brows, nails and, well, quite literally everywhere if you’re Doja Cat ⚱️ Get scrolling for some slightly more wearable takes on our favourite new beauty trend...

THE INSPO

Beyond Doja, loads of amazing MUAs and content creators have been srsly sparkling in our recent scrolls. From @aoifeartist to @maytahmi and @frankiepdarling, the looks have become more alien-like and out-there than ever. But we wanted to test how easy this aesthetic is at home, SO we asked Alice, our Fashion & Beauty Writer, to try out some more wearable looks with a futuristic vibe. Here’s how she got on👇

THE LIP LOOK

'This is the one I was most excited to try out. I’d seen Aoife (my fave MUA) using eyeshadows and highlighters on her lips and it looked SO GOOD. It's also so easy to do! I filled and lined my outer edges with a Barry M lip liner and then dabbed some MAC Pigment in the centre along with some Charlotte Tilbury Glow Glide Architect Highlighter. I finished the look with a flick of Huda Beauty eyeliner and Charlotte Tilbury's Flawless Filter Foundation mixed with a skin tint for my base.'

SKIN THAT GLOWS OFF

'For this look, I used loads of Charlotte Tilbury's Glow Glide Architect Highlighter and another purpley highlighter along my cheek and brow bones. It created a really nice metallic pop without looking too intense. I also mixed my skin tint with the MAC Strobe Cream to create an all-over 'glow from within' base.' ✨

ALL IN THE EYES

'Here, I lined above and below my eyes with the Charlotte Tilbury Eye Colour Magic Liner Duo in Copper Charge. I really like how copper looks with blue eyes. This is the perf high-impact, low-effort makeup, and that's definitely my vibe! I LOVED how this turned out.'
