5 INSTAGRAM BADDIE OUTFIT TIPS

Since Instagram baddies are always on-trend, and trends are constantly changing, updating your wardrobe as needed may seem near impossible. But when it comes to baddie fashion, there are a few timeless tips you can keep in mind for putting together an Instagram baddie outfit.

TIP #1: KEEP IT EFFORTLESS

Instagram baddies don’t try too hard—and you shouldn’t either! Practice creating the perfect balance of chic and effortless with your outfit. No need to be decked out in high heels (though you totally can with the right outfit). Jeans and sneakers will be your best friend!

TIP #2: CROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT

Cropped shirts are a staple in an Instagram baddie wardrobe. Instead of tight, form-fitting crop tops, think of loose, cropped sweatshirts and T-shirts paired with high-wasted jeans! Remember tip number one, you want to keep it effortless—at least in appearance.

TIP #3: TWO PIECES ARE BETTER THAN ONE

Another trend Instagram baddies can’t get enough of? Two pieces! Whether you’re wearing a matching pair of sweatpants with your cropped sweatshirt or are sporting a two-piece skirt and shirt set, coordinating tops and bottoms are something to stock up on.

TIP #4: ACCESSORIES ARE THE NAME OF THE GAME

Bold, eye-catching accessories are a must for any Instagram baddie look. Whether you focus on jewelry, sunglasses, a hat, or a belt is up to you, just be sure not to overlook the power of accessories when putting together your ensemble.

TIP #5: FLAUNT WHAT YOU’VE GOT

You can have the baddest outfit out there—but if you don’t own it, you won’t pull off the Instagram baddie look. Speaking of confidence, Instagram baddies use their wardrobe to their advantage—which is something we should all take note of. Wear clothes that flatter your body type so you can strut your stuff proudly.

HOW TO GET AN INSTAGRAM BADDIE MAKEUP LOOK

On to makeup! Follow the steps below to give yourself an Instagram baddie makeup look.

STEP #1: PRIME YOUR FACE

Instagram baddies don’t have a flaw in sight, which is why starting with a makeup primer is key. The L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base has a silky, lightweight formula that glides onto skin and minimizes the look of pores and fine lines. The result? A unified matte finish that’s flawless.

STEP #2: PERFECT YOUR COMPLEXION

After you’ve prepped your face, it’s time to reach for foundation. Like we mentioned, Instagram baddies are pretty much perfect, which means a full-coverage formula is a must. The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight has a lightweight formula with medium-to-full buildable coverage. Apply it with the help of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, bouncing it onto your skin for a seamless finish.

STEP #3: BRONZE IT UP

The next step in your Instagram baddie makeup look? Defined, chiseled cheekbones! Use a fluffy contour brush to apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Bronze It Bronzer to the hollows of your cheeks.

STEP #4: GET YOUR GLOW ON

There are two things Instagram baddies are known for when it comes to makeup, one of them being blinding highlighter. Use a tapered highlight brush to pack the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder onto your cheekbones, tip of your nose, and cupid’s bow. You glow, girl!

STEP #5: PERFECT YOUR BROWS

The second makeup trait Instagram baddies are known for? On-fleek eyebrows! You’ll want to make sure not a hair is out of place to pull off the look. Use the L’Oréal Paris Unbelievabrow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel to fill in and define your brows. First, fill in any sparse areas by dipping the angled brush onto the doe-foot applicator, then sweeping the angled brush where needed in short, hair-like strokes. Next, define your brow shape using the angled brush to create sharp, precise lines. Finish your brows by brushing the spoolie through them to blend the product for a seamless look.

STEP #6: MAKE IT SMOKEY

Brown smokey eyes? Yes, please! Start by applying an eye primer, then it’s time to get to work. An eye shadow palette, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Boudoir Charme, will come in handy. First, apply either medium brown shade all over your lids. Drag this same shade along your lower lash line with a thin, flat top eye shadow brush. Next, define your crease by popping the darkest brown shade onto the outer “V” of your eyes, blending with a fluffy brush. Finish your eye shadow by brightening your inner corner with the lightest, beige shade.

STEP #7: WING IT OUT

Aside from brows on fleek, you’ll always want to have winged eyeliner on fleek! Not skilled in creating a flawless wing? No problem. The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Flash Cat Eye Waterproof Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner comes with a removable wing stencil to make creating a flawless cat eye easy.

STEP #8: COAT YOUR LASHES

To keep your envy-inducing makeup look going, give your lashes a few coats of mascara. The L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara in Blackest Black will give your fringe an instant lash-lift effect.

STEP #9: PAINT YOUR POUT

When it comes to your lips, keep it matte, and keep it subtle. Generally, you’ll want to go for a “your lips but better” look. This means mauves and taupes will be your best friend. Try painting your pout with the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Tease or I Choose.

STEP #10: SET YOUR LOOK

No Instagram baddie would be seen with a fading or smudged makeup look, and neither should you! Set your makeup with a few spritzes of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray.
