If you’re interested in makeup, you’ve probably heard of the WAG makeup trend. In case you haven’t scrolled through social media in a while, this trend involves a neutral soft-glam look that isn’t over-the-top glamorous but still gives you a bit of a glow. Read on to find out what products you’d need to achieve this look.
What Is WAG Makeup?
The most important thing you should know about WAG makeup is that you can wear it to both a wild party and your boyfriend’s football game just like Taylor Swift does. The trend is perfect for you if you want a bit of glam that doesn’t look overdone. What you’ll need to get the look is a neutral matte eye shadow, a winged liner, a light glowy foundation, and a nude lip. Overall, it’s all about highlighting your natural beauty. It’s perfect for all occasions and you can never go wrong with it.
When spending time on your makeup, you want it to last throughout the event. That’s why you need to have a strong base and invest in good products. It’s recommended to get regular facials and use quality skincare products to prepare your face and give it a nice glow from within.
How to Get the Look
Before applying makeup, make sure to use a primer. This is one of the key factors that will make the base last. Then, use a long-lasting foundation and take your time blending it in. When it comes to your lips, a great hack is to use lipliner as lipstick. It lasts longer and doesn’t smudge. Go for a light bronzer on the face and blush in a light pink. For the eyes, you can use a neutral matte palette or even the same bronzer you used for your cheekbones. Add cat eye and some natural-looking lashes and you’re good to go.
Remember that blending is also extremely important in getting that nicely-sculpted and natural-toned look. You can opt for a light foundation and a contour stick for a more radiant glam. Don’t forget to set everything with a makeup spray that sprays a light mist and is not too heavy on the skin. You can even try and layer a few sprays for optimal results. If you’re going to dance all night or run errands all day, you want to lock that beautiful makeup in place.
When Colleen Hoover published her 2016 novel, It Ends With Us, it didn’t become famous until years later. The book follows the story of a young woman named Lily Bloom. She falls for a handsome neurosurgeon by the name of Ryle Kincaid. Unfortunately, he is very controlling, and the story depicts Lily’s marriage to the doctor. At the same time, a childhood friend, Atlas Corrigan, enters the picture to make the storyline even more interesting.
A Rise to Glory Years Later
The social media platform TikTok helped raise It Ends With Us to glory years after it was first published. Due to its popularity on the platform, it quickly shot up the bestseller’s list and held its position for 90 weeks as of January 2023. It’s right up there with the sequel to the novel It Starts With Us and an unrelated thriller by the same author.
The Adaptation of It Ends With Us
Not much is known about the movie adaptation of Hoover’s novel, but some things are already clear. As the author happily posted through a video, famous actress Blake Lively has already signed on to play the main character, Lily. She posted a mysterious video on her Instagram sporting new dark locks. Jake Baldoni, who many may know from Jane the Virgin, will play the neurosurgeon Ryle. And there’s even been a hint of Shane West playing Atlas.
Coloring Book Controversy
There was talk of a coloring book being created, but the idea quickly crumbled. Shortly after announcing the idea, Hoover and Atria Books announced that it was not moving forward. People were not on board with a coloring book because it would be unsuitable for children.
It Ends With Us author Colleen Hoover promises to tease as much as possible about the upcoming movie. At least the most she can before they kick her off the set. Fans can remain excited and in-waiting for Blake Lively and Jake Baldoni’s versions of Lily and Ryle in the adaptation.
