TikTok has given birth to another aesthetic trend. Meet Clean Girl. She always looks neat and put-together with little effort. Think of it as the That Girl lifestyle meets French Girl chic. It has the polished yet understated appeal of both concepts but none of the strict routines associated with the former. Read on to know how to have the Clean Girl aesthetic, from the minimal makeup to the easy hairstyles.
Clean Girl makeup look
Clean Girl began as a makeup trend that was started by TikTok beauty influencer @xolizahbeauty in mid-2021. Her now-viral TikTok clip showed how you can achieve the look of “those girls that always look clean” and “never ever look like they’re wearing too much makeup”.
The first step is to apply creamy concealer to key spots such as the area between your eyebrows, the skin around your eyes, the skin near your nostrils and lips, and on the chin. Blend upwards using a damp concealer and you’re done with the base. No foundation needed!
Next is brows. @xolizahbeauty advises to brush your brows upward but in a diagonal direction with a clear brow gel like Pixi’s Brow Tamer Brow Gel (SGD19 per 4.5ML) instead of brushing upward and straight. This creates a natural-looking full bushy look.
After that, dab on some translucent powder using a Beauty Blender in areas you usually see makeup creases like the upper eyelids and around the mouth.
Moving on to the lashes, @xolizahbeauty recommends coating the lashes with Aquaphor Soothing Balm (SGD14.90 per 110ML) before curling them and adding light mascara.
Finish the Clean Girl makeup look by lining your lips with a nude lip liner like Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk (SGD37 per 10G) and smudge it inwards for a “just-kissed” appearance. Top off with lip gloss and you’re good to go!
