Keira Knightley’s looks we love

Tuesday, 29 May 2012

Pirates of the Caribbean star, Keira Knightley, has said yes to rocker boyfriend James Righton after he popped the question! The two, who have been dating for 15 months, were introduced to each other by mutual friend Alexa Chung. Righton is a keyboard player for the London-based band, Klaxons.

And what better way to celebrate good news and good looks! Here are the Keira Knightley looks we love…

Keira Knightley's looks we love

Subtle, yet sophisticated

With a defined, bold eye, a flush of colour on the cheeks and a stained lip, Keira looks gorgeous.
To get this look: Use a curling tong or curling brush and create loose curls. Then apply a styling cream, such as Moroccan Oil Hydarting Styling Cream. As far as foundation goes, try a pressed powder like Almay’s Smart Shade Smart Balance Skin Balancing Pressed Powder. Apply two to three layers of mascara (we love Lancome’s Hypnose), and a black line of liner (Catrice’s Gel Liner). For the lips add a lip stain such as 2True Cheek ‘n’ Lip Tint.

Glamorous up do

With luminous glowing skin and a dollop of colour, Keira created a side parting to complement her up-do. Bold eyes, peachy coloured cheeks and a nude sweep of lipstick, Keira was ready for the 55th Annual Times BFI London Film Festival.
To get this look: Using a tail comb, section hair into a side parting. Tie the rest of your hair up, or use bobbi pins if you prefer to secure your style that way. Use hair spray to add shine and create a firm hold. Using a bit of bronzer or a peach blusher apply to the cheekbones. Line your eyes with black liner and add layers of mascara, then fill in your eyebrows to make them look fuller (but only if necessary). A nude lippie will complete the look.

Perfectly pretty bob

As one of my favourite looks, Keira loves her hair short too. Here she styles it to perfection with a straight, neat bob.
To get this look: Deal with frizzies with Wella’s Mirror Polish Shine Serum. For a natural, luminous look, try SENSAI SPF 15 Fluid Finish Lasting Velvet Foundation and then add an illuminator or bronzer like Bobbi Brown’s Bronzing Brick. On your lips, simply use lip ice for a natural glow.

Keira Knightley's looks we loveLoose and wavey

Maintaining a down-to-earth, I just stepped off the beach look, Keira kept this red carpet look very natural.
To get this look: With a bit of brown liner around the eyes, we love MAC’s Teddy Liner, and a coat of mascara, she really let her dress stand out rather than her make-up. With wavey strands, the soon-to-be-Mrs-Righton was ready to face the cameras – Lee Stafford’s Sea Salt Spray will help with the beach look.

‘Al natural

We know Keira isn’t one for heavy make-up and big, statement hairstyles, and this look proves it with a messy up do you don’t need any product for.
To get this look: Even your skin tone with a mineral foundation, like Bobbi Brown’s Mineral Foundation or Revlon’s ColorStay Aqua Mineral Make-Up, then complete the look by lining your top eye lid. And voilà! You’re ready.
