BEAUTY BAR: Half Buns & Dusty Rose

Two trends that have been circulating the fashion world recently are dusty rose colored ANYTHING, and half bun hairstyles. Dusty rose is one of the most popular colors right now in both beauty and clothing, and is easy to work into your everyday look because it is so neutral. We’ve seen dusty rose eyeshadow, lipstick, blush, dresses, tops, jackets and so on all over the place in recent months. This Fashionista is wearing rose colored eyeshadow and a dusty rose matte lipstick. The matte lip is another massively popular trend and every makeup brand is coming out with their own version of the iconic matte liquid lipstick. This dusty rose color pairs wonderfully with other neutral colors like nude, khaki, white, grey and black, which is the color this Fashionista paired it with.

I’m sure we can agree that sporting a high bun went from covering up a bad hair day to effortlessly chic this past year. Half buns have been trending recently, and for good reason. It’s the easiest way to keep your hair out of your face while also looking a little edgy and chic. You could either keep your hair straight like this Fashionista or curly while wearing the half bun hairstyle. Her dark, edgy half bun hair and effortless dusty rose makeup pair perfectly with her leather jacket and mostly black outfit.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: All you need to recreate this half bun hairstyle is a hair elastic that matches your hair color, and either a curling iron or a flat iron depending on how you want to style your hair that day. To recreate this dusty rose makeup trend, search through your existing makeup or go to your local beauty store and grab a natural rose matte lipstick and some rose or pink eyeshadow and blush to complete a monochromatic makeup look.
