Not a day goes by when Lizzo isn’t amazing us with her breathtaking beauty. (We still haven’t recovered from the braided slime-green wig and matching makeup she gave us in July.) But she also takes our breaths away with her comedic genius and expert trolling on TikTok that we guarantee will have you bent over with laughter. TikTok is also the platform where she shows off beauty moments that usually never make it to Instagram — for example, the wavy Bantu knots and Gucci barrette she wore in several posts on August 11.
Lizzo begins one TikTok video by walking into blinding sunlight and saying, “News flash!” After she finds the perfect amount of sunlight to serve face, she continues with, “I’m pretty bitch but you already knew that.” And she’s absolutely right. For this look, it’s hard to decide if her Bantu knots, wavy tendrils, Gucci barrette, dreamy makeup, or color-blocked bodycon midi dress is the star of the look, so we’ll start with the hair.
These medium-sized buns have not one but two hair colors. The two-toned look mixes dark brown and cinnamon hues for a gorgeous color combination that suits Lizzo perfectly. These are pretty standard Bantu knots, except for the wavy tendrils of medium-brown hair that lie around the perimeter of her face. Her baby hairs are slicked and swooped around her hairline — no adult hairs found over here. The final element of the look is the bedazzled Gucci barrette that sits smack dab in the center of her crown. These Bantu knots are beautiful enough on their own, but the blinged-out barrette and wavy pieces of hair add an eye-catching touch to the style.
Lizzo opted for a glowy makeup look with hints of orange and pink that match the hues in her dress. Her radiant skin features a hint of golden highlighter on her nose and a punchy coral blush that sits on her cheekbone. You can’t miss the glistening champagne pigment on her lids or the orange and brown shades blended into her crease. The fluttery falsies and pinky nude lip gloss are a great complement to the eye and face.
As always, Lizzo looks sensational. These wavy Bantu knots and bedazzled barrette may make an appearance on her Instagram later or exist solely on TikTok for us to cherish. If and when that IG post happens, we’ll be ready to shower her with heart eye and fire emojis.
