Hey-ho, it seems the beauty cognoscenti has chanced upon yet another opportunity to run amok with their heavily-stocked arsenals. Where entire palettes of rainbow-crush hues, perfectly primed liners with brush tips worthy of envy and all those little bags of dazzling sequins can once again emerge from the drawers. A new shining jewel of your visage has been crowned—but it’s an unlikely spot not to be usually expected. Rather than amping up on the glow of your peepers or giving life to a ferocious pout, the time has come for the nose bridge to have its own light of day.
Just how might you go about acing this unorthodox look? No doubt, that’s where Vogue Singapore has you sorted. The preliminary research has been done, and sure enough, it’s a trend that has quickly taken off amidst our starry celebrity set. By putting the spotlight on the very tip of your bridge—à la Yeri of Red Velvet who embellished hers with a single butterfly crystal—or try lining it with a string of sequins. Or should you prefer to get creative with your latest make-up haul, then consider Troye Sivan’s flavourful attempt at brightening the bridge with an abstract liner drawing. For an edgier masterclass? Look to Taeyeon’s puncture-like look during her ‘Stamp On It’ comeback or (G)I-DLE’s Yuqi metallic strip.
Should you now be curious to try your hand at nose bridge embellishments yourself, glean all the preliminary inspo you’ll need for playing around with the look, below.
