With the sudden influx of musical artists and social media starlets in the past few years, having the ability to stand out among those in the crowd all boils down to talent, personality, and having the right look. Luckily for this week’s beauty crush, Tinashe, having all three seem to be working in her favor. Since she burst on the scene with her megahit song, “2 On”, the Kentucky native has been an unstoppable force, recently dropping a successful album, “Nightride”, collaborating with her idol, Britney Spears, and hosting E!’s red carpet at this year’s American Music Awards. And doing all this while showcasing gorgeous makeup and hair put us on notice.
Not one to go overboard with makeup, Tinashe seems to prefer colors close to her skin tone like soft browns and light pinks, especially on the eyes, lips and cheeks.
Every now and then, though, she vamps things up with a red pout or a sultry smokey eye to liven up her look.
You tend to see a lot of female artists sport the same hairstyle at just about every red carpet, award show, or performance. But Tinashe goes against the grain. Whether she’s giving voluminous, cascading curls, a braided side-ponytail, or looking regal in an African printed headwrap, she takes risks and they usually pay off. And let’s face it. Rocking the same look repeatedly can become a little stale.
So, here’s to this week’s beauty crush, Tinashe, for being a fearless risk-taker in both her music and her style.
