It’s time to wave goodbye to the clean girl aesthetic once and for all as our Instagram and TikTok feeds have been taken over by the unapologetically bold Mob Wife beauty trend. Digging into the archives of ‘The Sopranos’ for inspiration, the first viral beauty trend of 2024 is about embracing all things smoky, sultry and with some serious sass.

Hallmarked as a celebration of confidence and maximalism, signature Mob Wife makeup look is all about smudged eyes with a touch (or more) of shimmer and dramatic liner. Pair with a dark rouge cheek tint and a matching deep red lip to give ultimate glamour. Serve head-to-toe Mob Wife beauty with a co-ordinating nail colour before picking the perfect (faux) fur and chunky gold jewellery to complete the look. Carmela Soprano would be proud.  & Other Stories Beauty have just the shades for you.

Try a rouge cheek tint with Burnt Cinnamon Cheek & Lip Tint (£17), while a matching manicure is the perfect partner with Magenta Superbe Nail Polish (£8). Create the infamous Mob Wife smoky eye with Satiny Black Eye Marker (£13), then add some sparkle with Vintage Khaki Eye Colour Cream (£17).  An iconic red lip is always the answer with Cherry Ideal Lip Colour (£17).

 

Known for her beloved bath and body oils, Susanne Kaufmann introduces her first ever Face Oil (£65), a light-weight formula designed to repair, nourish, and soften skin. Clinically proven to reduce moisture loss, reinforce the skin’s barrier and improve skin firmness, this beautiful oil is enriched with bilberry seed oil and astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant derived from blood rain algae and apricot kernel oil to promote suppleness. For ultra-hydrated skin, add the Face Oil into your favourite moisturiser or body care.  Available now from susannekaufmann.
