They’re in the press every day and they inspire many of us with their perfect make-up and beauty routines. Whilst many celebrities have a stylist on hand to help them with every whim and a make-up artist to perfect their flawless style it is possible to get a celebrity make-up look by taking several key points and recreating them. Whilst you may not look like your idol straight away, practice makes perfect and in no time you’ll find you’ll be perfecting that ruby red lip or doe eyes.
Bright eyes are worn by celebrities like Rita Ora who teams a smoky red eye with matte red lip, hat and curls. When it comes to bright make-up it’s important to remember the eyes or lips rule as often having both strong eyes and lips can be too much. To make your eyes stand out use a dark black or vibrant blue, remembering to keep the rest of your face neutral.
Smoky eye-shadow looks fabulous, but it looks even better with a sparkly hue. Kate Moss sparkles away with glitter infused smoky eye make-up. To recreate smudge a brown shadow out and blend with a golden shade to make your eyes sparkle. Metallics also look great blended on the lid and under the waterline. If glittery eyes aren’t your thing then why not make your lips the centre of attention with a glittery gloss or lipstick. Zoe Saldana rocks it with a gorgeous glittery gloss.
Even celebrities have their off duty days which means you can forget the heavy duty make-up. Celebs like Olivia Wilde rock the natural look with a touch of taupe shadow, a little bit of mascara and a pretty clear gloss to finish it off. Whether you’re heading to the Supermarket or the Red Carpet your look will be sophisticated low key glamour. Remember natural is all about embracing the features you were born with and showcasing them whether it’s your pretty eyes or striking cheek bones.
The strong lip is a celebrity make-up look that never ages. From the glamorous Hollywood hey day where celebrities like Bette Davis rocked a strong lip to modern day when the look is still going strong. Make your lips bold with a pillar-box red or a bright pink, keep the rest of your face understated and let your mouth do the talking. Olivia Wilde makes a red lip look even more unique by finishing with a layer of clear gloss.
We all look good with a great tan and celebrities are often seen jetting off to a sun kissed beach in the Caribbean. Whilst we might not have the same amount of money as most stars we can certainly fake it with a clever bit of bronzing. Karolina Kurkova is a real bronzed beaut y combining bronzed skin with a bronze eye-shadow. If you don’t want your whole face to be too bronzed you can just add a little bit of glow by adding bronzer to the apple of your cheeks an d sweeping up into your hairline to sculpt your cheekbones. Jennifer Lopez is famous for her bronzed cheek bones so if you’re lost for inspiration she’s your girl.
