When a celebrity hits the red carpet, is on the cover of a magazine or on a late-night talk show, we pay close attention to every hair strand, every color in their makeup, and even to the way she is wearing her dress (belt or no belt?). And if you’re anything like me, you become inspired, desperately trying to mimic their look. One of my favorite things is to try and copy is the stars makeup. I watch youtube videos and read step-by-step instructions on how to get the same looks as stars such as Kristen Stewart and Mila Kunis. With that said, I decided to put together a list of my favorite celebrity makeup looks. Hopefully to inspire you with new styles to try, and of course, adding your own little twist to make it unique to you! So pull out the lipstick and pucker up because these are some of my favorite makeup styles straight from the stars! Xoxo!
The Smoky Eye
There are a couple different ways to do a great smoky eye. You can do a lot of neutral tones and darker shades of eye shadows like Mila or you can even add a little pop of color in the mix. The one thing that is the key to a perfect smoky eye is eyeliner. A very dark eyeliner to go across the top of the eyelid and a thick layer of dark eyeliner under the eye at the water line. I’m also a huge mascara lover. I’m a caker. I love to put on about two or three layers of mascara, sometimes even using a couple different types and brands to complete the entire eye!
The Cat Eye
The cat eye look is one that is becoming more and more popular. It was the hottest eye look in the 60’s and 70’s and now it is making a comeback! Stars like Taylor Swift and Adele are known for their cat eye makeup. This look requires a pretty steady hand to trace the line. I recommend you use a thin eye pencil first to get the exact shape you want and then fill it out with a thicker, liquid eyeliner. My favorite cat eye look was Kristen Stewart’s for W Magazine who was channeling a 60’s pin up girl. Beautiful!
Megan Fox does a red lip unlike anyone else. The one important rule to remember in doing any makeup is to pick one asset to highlight. When doing smoky eye, you don’t want to do a dramatic lip too. You want to keep the lip pale and understated. Same goes with the red lips. You want to be sure to keep the eyes toned down. A nice beige-toned eye shadow and thick eyeliner on the top lid, like Megan has, is the perfect combo with the dramatic red lip!
The Natural Look
Jennifer Aniston is the epitome of a natural beauty. She always has a sun kissed glow to her skin, and always has a very natural eye makeup. To perfect this look, you need to have a very clean face. You should apply a small amount of foundation and powder, very natural-toned eye shadows, a light/thin line of eyeliner and just a touch of mascara. The most makeup on the face for this look is a light pink shade a blush to make the face pop!
People either love the dewy look or hate it. I happen to love it! It’s a nice look to do every once and a while. To get this look I would use very moisturizing foundations and a highlighter on my cheekbones. Also, use light shades of cream eye shadows. They also have cream blushes that would go good on top of the foundation too. I would not suggest this for women with oily skin, because it can cause breakouts on oily faces, but if you have normal to dry skin, this is a look you should try!
