It’s SO adorable - The soft girl makeup look!
Social media has played a huge part in popularizing the latest makeup trends, ranging from the minimalist, beachy VCSO girls, to the much more full-on and dramatic e-girl look. Somewhere in the middle of these trends, the soft girl look has emerged as a sweet and girly aesthetic that’s appearing all over Tik Tok and Instagram. Here we take a look at the soft girl phenomenon, and check out the key elements of this look for you to try out!
With many soft girls, there’s A LOT of pink - pink clothes, pink accessories, maybe even pink hair, but definitely pink makeup! Pink blush, pink lip gloss, pink highlighter - this picture of DouxFairy on Instagram really captures the innocent and dreamy look at the heart of the soft girl persona. That little dab of highlighter on the end of her nose just completes the look!
Some soft girls adopt a super cute doll-like look, like kyandeere….
And others love to incorporate elements of the gamer girl persona such as Lyssy Noel.
Or maybe channelling the anime look, like sugoimeg. Check out that pastel mascara - we want it!
Freckles are very popular with soft girls, and if you don’t have them naturally, why not fake it by drawing them on? It all adds to that youthful and playful look that’s just so adorable. We love the combination of pink hair, pink blush and freckles in this picture from kidjess.
Many soft girls enjoy playing around with make up stamps or art to add features to their look such as hearts, flowers or butterflies - this combination of butterfly eye makeup, blue contact lenses and faux freckles is really striking!
Brookstyless looks so sweet and approachable in this gorgeous image - a more pared back version of the softgirl look.
Sophie Suchan has created a version of the soft girl look that’s incredibly sophisticated and classy while still bearing the key hallmarks of the soft girl persona - feminine, girly and youthful - but in a way that can easily translate to everyday life. Less cartoony and cutesy than some of the other looks, it’s still gorgeous but could easily cross over into the workplace.
There are so many variations on the soft girl aesthetic - why not try out some of these styles, and see which one captures your heart?
Dry Shampoo white residue? Don’t worry I got you
I love a dry shampoo with a lot of powder because it is what is absorbing the oil to make your hair look less greasy. However, sometimes there is a little white powder residue that I can’t seem to rub into my dark hair. Simple solution 💡!! Shine spray! It makes it all blend away! Using: KLORANE - Detox Dry Shampoo With Organic Aquatic Mint REDKEN - Shine Flash 02 Shine Spray

3 Easy Ways to Volumize Your Hair
Hair concerns: Flat, Thin These are my 3 quick, go-to hair tips for volumizing my hair! This is great for when you’re on the go and don’t have too much time on your hands. 1. Use a Root Volumizer Hot Tool (Bed Head Little Tease Hair Crimper for Outrageous Texture and Volume) - Using this root volumizer hot tool will give you the volume of teased hair without the tangled knots and hairspray. It works by making small crimps or waves in your hair and gives your roots volume from the texture it creates. Just make sure to cover your roots with a layer of hair to conceal the textured areas. - Directions: Clamp the hot tool at your roots, brush it out with your fingers, and cover it with a layer of hair. Spray a moderate amount of hair spray to keep it in place. 2. Dry Shampoo - Thin, flat hair usually looks lifeless because of the lack of texture and thinness of the hair shaft. This means that having freshly washed hair can actually be your worst enemy if you’re going for a volumized look. Adding in a hair product can help at the roots by allowing for your hair to be styled into place. You can use any texturizing spray to do so, but I like to use dry shampoo especially for second-hair days! It helps soak up the oils in my hair as well as volumizing my roots. - Directions: Use any dry shampoo your own and spray onto your roots and brush it out. 3. Hair Extensions - Adding hair extensions onto your head will effortlessly give the illusion that your hair is much thicker than it actually is. The added layers will make the roots of your hair appear uplifted. You can choose from lengthening hair extensions (like mine) or extensions that match your hair length. Either way, it’ll make your hair on your head look much fuller. - Directions: Use clip-in hair extensions and clip it onto your roots. Cover the clip-ins with a layer of hair and spray hairspray it to keep it in place. #cheriepartner #sponsored
HOW TO: AT-HOME BLOWOUT
At-home blowouts are the future of hair styling! Ever since I went to Dry Bar a year ago to get a blowout for $80 (which is just ridiculous in my opinion), I’ve been mastering my at-home blowout. I purchased the Revlon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer at Ulta which completely changed the game for my hair after shower hair routine! REVLON - One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer Bonus Tip: Remember to spray a heat protectant in your hair before drying it. 😊 OUAI - Heat Protection Spray To get max volume and flipped ends, I take 1 inch sections and start at the root of my hair. I go as slowly as possible so that all of my roots are dry. Next, I twist the brush so that my hair is wrapped around it all the way down the section of hair. I repeat this process until I reach the top of my head. Lastly, I take a straightener to flatten any flyaways or unwanted curls if there are any left. That’s it! In total, the entire process takes me about 20 minutes. My hair feels so soft, light, and looks amazing afterwards. The next time you think about going to purchase a blowout, I recommend trying it at home first! 💕
✨Cute Bun Hairstyle✨
Hi Guys!!! I recently saw this scrolling on Pinterest and I wanted to recreate it! It’s SO easy and took about 5 minutes total!! It looks so fancy yet it’s so simple! I have medium to thin hair but this can work on pretty much all hair types! (: (tip: spray texture spray beforehand) this helps it stay in better!)☺️ HOW TO: -I like to pull my bangs out first (: - you’re going to section it as if you’re doing a half up half down hairstyle -then you’re going to start twisting that part of your hair -I twist it around like I’m doing a ballerina bun😅 -then I secure it with a hair tie ❤️ -you can leave like that! Or I like to pull it out a little so it’s more loose!✨😊
