If you’re on TikTok (or even scrolling through Instagram), you’ve probably noticed your feed filled with step-by-step tutorials on achieving the perfect makeup aesthetic. This week, we’re talking about the ‘Weird Girl Aesthetic’ makeup look.
So what’s it all about? Contrary to the previous trending ‘Clean Girl’ aesthetic look that consists of a flawless base, plump nude lips, flushed cheeks, and a perfect glow, the ‘Weird Girl’aesthetic takes a stand on being loud and real.
Watsons, Asia’s vibrant and much-loved beauty concept store in the UAE, has compiled these top looks and product picks to experiment with to nail the Weird Girl Aesthetic beauty look.
School Girl On The Block!
Recreate your favourite hairstyles and makeup look with a cyberpunk twist. Think braids, pigtails, high ponies, space buns, and loud, vibrant eyes to amp up the look.

Keep it natural and blushed! Consider using a light concealer on problem areas followed by a cream blush and a natural lip or gloss. For those opting for a monochromatic look, apply your favourite, natural colour cream lipstick to the lips, the bridge of your nose, and cheeks for a sweet, blushed look. Finish with some highlights and a few swigs of mascara on your top and bottom lashes and you’re ready to go.
