Dua Lipa is engaged on a brand new undertaking, and whereas we haven’t any particulars aside from the actual fact she has one thing within the works, what we do know is that it entails a magnificence look that pays homage to the wonder and trend tendencies of the Nineteen Sixties and 70s.
On Sunday, the singer posted a selfie displaying off a magnificence look that might have come straight out of the Mary Quant exhibit at the V&A, accompanied by the cryptic caption “💙 coming quickly💙”. It is too quickly to say what’s coming subsequent (a brand new music video for a monitor from her Future Nostalgia album, maybe?), we do have slightly extra data on her hair, make-up, and nails — the latter of which was a flower energy French manicure created by London-based nail artist Michelle Humphrey.
“🌼 FLOWER POWER for my angel @dualipa – So cute!” Humphrey wrote on her Instagram feed together with a close-up photograph of Dua’s nails. Utilizing Bio Sculpture Gel Nail Polish, Humphrey gave Dua’s nails a smooth almond form, including cherry-red French suggestions. Scattered throughout these suggestions, she then added yellow-and-red flowers mimicking the long-lasting daisy emblem that featured throughout Quant’s iconic designs — clothes that finally outlined the style of the “swinging sixties.”
Dua’s make-up was the handiwork of Lisa Eldridge, who works often with the singer when she’s within the UK. Her eye make-up additionally had a distinctly ’60s vibe, that includes many references to the wonder tendencies of that period — with thick black liner throughout the lids, a double wing that extends previous the outer corners of each the highest and backside lash strains, and Twiggy-style spider lashes alongside the underside lashes. Eldridge gave the impression a 2020 edge, nonetheless, by topping Dua’s lids with shimmery ombré blue shadow (within the ’60s, it could have most definitely been pastel and matte) and a stunning pinky-taupe lipstick with a satin end.
Topping off Dua’s classic magnificence look, fairly actually, was some fake blunt bangs courtesy of hairstylist Anna Cofone. Sandwiched between Dua’s quick, face-framing layers — which turned virtually like little sideburns, one other iconic in style ’60s type — the darkish brunette fringe was minimize lengthy and feathery, in order that the ends grazed the singer’s forehead bones.
Holding in keeping with the concept of “Future Nostalgia,” a lot of Dua Lipa’s songs and music movies from the album reference previous many years in a roundabout way. “Levitating” has a definite ’80s vibe, whereas the video for “Hallucinate” referenced animated characters like Betty Boop and Mickey Mouse from the ’30s. No matter this new undertaking is, Dua’s tapping into the mod type of the ’60s and early ’70s, and we won’t wait to see all the epic magnificence and trend moments that come of it.
