Viral Beauty: Channeling your inner-Sugar Plum Fairy with Hailey Bieber

Another week, another trend hailed on by reigning trendsetter herself Hailey Beiber. 

This week, it’s an ode to simpler times, and a nod to the classic Ballet number that’s as Christmassy as Gingerbread houses and eggnog. Drawing inspiration from the dewy, ‘ballet-core’ soft glam that reigned supreme in 2023, ‘Sugar Plum Fairy Make-Up’ is the latest take on clean-girl make-up. From glistening cheeks to perfectly flawless bases, it’s the only look you’ll need this Summer to take you from day to night. 

Bring on the trends, Miss Hailey!

Magic Cream

Charlotte Tilbury
Price: $50.00

The perfect base builder that’s a moisturising, priming and prepping cream all-in-one. Take a small scoop of this rich cream (a little goes a long way) and gently rub it into your face and neck for the perfect blurring base. Perfect for dry and combination skin, this quite literal ‘magic cream’ soaks into any dry patches and leaves the face plump and soft. If you’re an oily or acne-prone skin girlie, try the Magic Water Cream – It’s much lighter than the OG whilst still giving that blurring magic skin effect.

Eaze Blur Smoothing Stick

Fenty Beauty
Price: $52.00

Build your perfect base and erase any imperfections with the latest skin fix from Fenty. Rihanna’s nailed this one, from an easy applicator that’s perfect for on-the-go or light touch-ups, to it’s 100% usable packaging (hello, twist cap!), not a hint of this gorgeous foundation is left untouched. Its lightweight, moisturising formula makes it the perfect summer in-a-stick base that’s all you’ll need – Just glide it on, blend, and off you go!

M2 Ready in 5 Eyeshadow Palette

Price: $11.00

Could this palette BE any more perfect for Sugar Plum Fairy Make-Up? With the perfect soft pink base shades, deep plum matte shades and shimmer rosy-hues to top it off, it’s all your eyes need to complete the look – and at only $11 for 5 shades, she’s worth it.

Lip Pencil in Cork

Mecca Cosmetics
Price: $37.00

Define your lips with Mac’s muted golden brown Cork lip liner. A nod to the dark, brown  liner era of the 90’s and early 2000’s. Create a soft, sharp line around your lips and gradually bring the liner in, creating an almost ‘ombre-effect’.

Tinted Balm in Perfect Nude

Price: $14.95

Until we get Rhode in Australia (trust us, we’re waiting), Lanolips is the best nourishing lip treatment there is. From hydrating formulas that last on the lips for hours, to their stunning colour variety, there’s a Lanolip for every look. The original ‘perfect nude’ Lanolip is a shining sheer pink that perfectly compliments any sheer ‘ballet’ style make-up look. Lather it over your lips for a glossy sheen that’s as nourishing as it is delightfully Fairy-like.

24-hr Brow Setter Brow Gel

Benefit Cosmetics
Price: $48.00

Tame those brows and keep them set all day long with Benefit’s clear brow-gel. This firm yet structured brush coats each hair with a thick set of gel and locks it in place no matter what. In 2024, less is more. Simply clear coat your brows and let them sit, the result is a softer, more natural brow to compliment the face.

Beauty Light Wand in Pinkgasm

Charlotte Tilbury
Price: $58.00

The perfect bright rose-pink shimmer to uplift your look. With just a touch of subtle shimmer, it’s a highlight and blusher in one. Take this one up the cheekbones and into the temples and eyelids for the ultimate Sugar Plum Fairy glisten that’s equal parts highlight and blush. A little goes a long way, so use it sparingly.

Setting Powder in Cherry Blossom Cake

Huda Beauty
Price: $56.00

The setting powder so good, you can’t help but buy more than 1 shade. Viral for its literal face-blurring effect, Huda Beauty’s Setting Powder in Cherry Blossom is a gorgeous subtle powder that brightens and smooths dull spots in the skin for an ultra luminous finish. Sweep a generous amount under the eyes and below the cheekbones and let it ‘bake’ for a glowing, brightening effect that’ll leave you looking refreshed and revived. Did we mention it’s pink? Sold.

Soft Kohl Pencil in Sable Brown

Rimmel London
Price: $4.85

Subtly transform your look and bring warmth to your face with a soft brown eye pencil. Perfect not just for lining the eyes and giving them warmth, but also for dotting on your cheeks for a ‘freckle’ effect. Much softer and less harsh than a standard black eyeliner, brown is best for a day-time, summer look.

Hailey Press On Nails

Glow by Her
Price: $45.00

Glowie is the brand that converted me, a ride-or-die acrylic nail girl, to a press-on lover. Grab yourself a pair of Hailey’s iconic chrome style nails in less than 10 minutes with these chic press-on’s – so sturdy you won’t even be able to tell they aren’t painted on. Best of all, you can re-use each pair more than once so you get more value for your money. Check out Glowie’s range of designs online, there’s a style for everyone.

8-Hour Cream

Elizabeth Arden
Price: $32.00

Honorable Mention:

Bringing this one into your routine as a literal ‘Skin-Savour’. Perfect for any skin dry-spots, red-patches or anywhere simply needing a bit of shine, Elizabeth Arden’s 8-hour cream is an all-in-one miracle protectant that’s got 8 benefits in one, including brow shaping, cheek shine and cuticle care.
