With the Tenniscore fashion trend taking over our wardrobes as well as the red carpets this season, it was only a matter of time till the trend seeped into our beauty routines too. Thankfully, it might just be what we need to survive the soaring temperatures.

Tenniscore fashion, if you’re unversed, has become all anyone (with a remote sense of style) can talk about, all thanks to Zendaya and her looks from the upcoming Luca Guadagnino film, Challengers.

The stylish actress has made an art form of the trend, both on and off screen, and has inspired countless other fashion enthusiasts to dress like they’re planning to spend the day on the court or chilling courtside for the summer.

Tenniscore beauty, like its style counterpart, is all about functionality and minimalism. If you’re going to be sweating it out on the court, then you can’t have two-inch-long acrylic nails and a blowout. The beauty trend focuses on clean and minimal looks that give you a healthy glow.

The beauty of the trend is that you don’t need to spend hours perfecting your serve to ace it. So while functionality and minimalism are keywords that you need to memorise while adopting Tenniscore beauty, no rule says you can’t elevate a standard tennis-playing look.

The trend is characterised by clean updos, think classic high ponytails or buns. You can go for a braided ponytail, as opposed to a simple one, and add accessories like bows to add some fun. Speaking of fun accessories, headbands and oversized scrunchies are also very much acceptable.

When it comes to make-up, highlighter and glossy skin are your best friends. The look has to be glowy and emulate just the right amount of sweaty to give off that fresh off-the-court appearance. Glazed blush can help you get a natural flush and add to the look. For your manicure, clean and short nails with minimal nail art can tie in your whole Tenniscore look together: think the viral micro French manicure.

So, will you be trying Tenniscore beauty this season?
