Experiment with different lighting, angles and props to create unique images that evoke the same soulful vibes of your favorite R&B songs.

Fashion & Makeup

When crafting your look into an R&B aesthetic, think simple yet stylish pieces with subtle pops of color and texture.

Choose classic silhouettes like sleek rib dresses or crop tops with leather or baggy pants, but don’t be afraid to add some bold accessories like statement earrings or colorful scarves.

When it comes to makeup, go for natural glam looks with glowing skin and soft smoky eyeshadows. The skin glow is really the main thing for the soulful mood, there’s not a lot of room for matte makeup in r&b aesthetics.

To get that signature “R&B glow up” finish off your look with highlighter on the cheekbones and cupid’s bow for extra sparkle!
