Dolphin skin is the latest skin trend to take the beauty world by storm, and it’s absolutely stunning. Less shiny than glass skin, the trend was coined by celebrity makeup artist Mary Phillips to describe strategic highlighting that mimics wet-looking, glossy skin that looks as smooth as a dolphin. It’s luxe, sexy, and a fave among supermodels and It girls!

According to Glamour UK, Mary uses a combination of ICONIC London products to achieve the look. She begins by using the “ICONIC London’s Prep-Set-Glow, $25, and Illuminator for a fresh, glowy look that won’t budge.” Then, Mary recommends the Sheer Blush, $26, to add a “sheer gloss of color to the cheekbone and to add the dewy wet glow.”

However, you can achieve dolphin skin with any glow-getting products you can find. Our go-to is the Huda Beauty Glow Coco Hydrating Mist, $35. The 3-in-1 super fine mist sets and hydrates your makeup while leaving a beautiful, dewy glow. For more tips on how to achieve the trend, check out our dolphin skin guide.

Two-toned hair has been on our radar for a while now, however, Amandla Stenberg just sported two-toned box braids on the cover of Mission, officially reigniting the trend. Dua Lipa has also continued to experiment with two-toned hair throughout lockdown. During quarantine, her brunette under section remained, but she switched up the bleached blonde segment and let her model boyfriend (Anwar Hadid) dye it at home. From vibrant hues to soft baby pink, no color is off the table.

There’s no denying that this is a bold choice, however, if you’re daring enough, it’s the ultimate cool-girl style. Experiment with different two-toned sections and don’t be afraid to try bright hues like Dua. To trial the look, use semi-permanent hair dye or simply a color spray like the L’Oreal Paris Hair Color Colorista, $11, to determine the final look. Then to minimize hair damage, keep one color your natural shade, and play with different hues. For inspo, check out Bleach London‘s Instagram page – they have some amazing two-toned hairstyles on show.

3. Half-Dipped Nails

This chic, playful nail trend is blowing up on Instagram RN. The design is exactly as the name suggests – nail’s half dipped in color. The best thing about this trend is it’s super easy to DIY at home. Start by painting from the midpoint of the nail to the tip. Then to create a clean line between the color and negative space, use a small brush coated in polish remover and mark a perfect line. Alternatively, use tape across the base of your nail to separate the two areas.

Another major bonus? It’s uber versatile: simply switch up the color depending on your vibe. Opt for bright hues for a playful mani or keep it understated by using muted tones. We also love that this doesn’t show any nail grow out, so the look can last weeks!

4. Blonde

If you’re considering taking the plunge, make sure you read our guide to going blonde because there’s a lot to consider! Not only do you need to find the perfect shade to suit your skin tone but you need to prep your tresses for the transformation to ensure you don’t leave the salon with fried locks!

Ever since celebs have gotten back into the makeup chair, they’ve opted for soft-bronzed glam. Gone are the days of heavy, smokey eyes, and instead they’ve been replaced with lightly contoured lids paired with a nude lip and a warm bronzed glow. We’re crowning it the new no-makeup makeup look as it’s still minimal, however it uses nude-for-you tones to enhance and sculpt your features. It literally looks great on everyone.

When we labeled this an ‘It girl trend,’ we weren’t kidding. Everyone from Beyoncé to Lizzo and Khloe Kardashian has sported the makeup look in the past month alone.
