8x Makeup trends for 2022

Triangle bikini look #1


Let’s start with good ol’ number one, the traditional way of wearing your triangle bikini. Pull the straps to your neck and tie them up in the back and tie your back straps straight behind your back.

Triangle bikini look #2


Untie the neck straps, but leave the back straps tied at the back, then pull the two neck straps to the front and cross them across your chest. Tie back behind your neck and you’ve got yourself a lovely cross detail across your chest. This style works wonders for the cleavage area! 

Triangle bikini look #3


Look 3 is the asymmetric look. For this one, again leave your back straps tied at the back, and untie your neck straps. Pull them both to the front and pull them both across 1 shoulder, attach the straps on one side of your back straps, et voila, the ultimate asymmetrical, one-shoulder look. This one is surprising and super on-trend, what more could you want?!


 "Every body is a bikini body!


Triangle bikini look #4


For look 4 again keep the straps on your back all tied up, simply untie the top neck straps, grab them at the front and cross them just about your chest. Tie them up and then wrap the left-over bits of the straps around the back of  your neck. This will give you a slight variation of the traditional cross-over style.

Triangle bikini look #5


This one is a lil different! It requires you to flip over the triangle top and put it on top to bottom and then simply tie the straps as you normally would: around your back & neck. It’s kinda same same, but different, ya know?! Why not give it a go!

Triangle bikini look #6


Now this style is going to require some imagination, but it’ll look amazing, promise! So, first thing’s first, pull the triangular cups all the way to the outside, left & right, then you’re left with a wide piece of the strap which you can pull over your neck. Tie the shorter straps you’re left with behind your back, and pull the long straps down under your breasts and cross them over, pull to your back and tie them up just below the existing back straps.
