Celebrity make-up looks we love

Love them or hate them, celebs play a major role in defining hair and make-up trends. Rihanna only had to wear her neon blue lipstick once before teenage girls of all ethnicities set out to find their perfect shade of ultramarine… A bit extreme, perhaps, but true nonetheless! Here, our favourite make-up looks from the cream of the crop in Hollywood.

Darby Stanchfield
This gorgeous redhead wears her pink lipstick with perfection – we can’t wait to try a similar shade this summer!

Cobie Smulder
Feminine side plait, glowing complexion and striking red lips… We can’t get enough of Cobie’s simple yet oh-so effective look.

Alicia Silverstone
Alicia’s cheeks are pretty in peach and take years off her age.

Celebrity make-up looks we love

Naya Rivera
Those cheekbones, those eyes, that pout… Naya plays up all her best features with perfect contouring and berry lips.

Lupita Nyong’o
This lady sure knows how to find her perfect red. Not only does her lipstick brighten up her complexion, but her teeth look white as snow too!

Julia Roberts
Everyone’s favourite pretty woman dazzles us with her simple make-up. Her natural beauty comes out so strongly that it looks as if she’s wearing no make-up at all!

    Love Naya’s make-up. She’s just such a natural beauty. Cobie has a lovely red pout, but I’m not sure if I’d be able to pull off such a bold colour!

    Lupita and Naya’s eye shadow is amazing. I like Cobie’s lip colour. Julia, Alicia and Darby look gorgeous and natural and I like it when make-up is barely there.

    It takes a bit of practice and the right type of lighting when you apply your makeup to get the look right.

    I love the look on Cobie. The hair is messy and playful, the lips are strong and her eyes still stand out. Gorgeous.

    Most of these look almost very natural. I wish I could wear blush without looking like a clown.

    I love that celebs can wear so little make up and still look gorgeous! Nothing worse than looking over done :)
