Get The Look: Cara Delevingne

It-girl Cara Delevingne is taking the modeling world by storm. Whether it’s runway shows, advertising campaigns or magazine covers, Cara has secured her position in the industry. Let’s not forget that she also has the most envious pair of eyebrows! Here’s how you can recreate Cara’s flawless look.

Prepare your eyebrows by brushing them with a brow brush. Once they are in place, fill in any gaps with either a powder or a brow pencil and set them in place with a swipe of brow setting gel. Eyes are kept simple with a thin line of liquid liner and a few lashings of your favourite volumising mascara. As the lipstick is bold, it is important that you use a lip liner to prevent the colour from bleeding. Choose a red lipstick shade that is suited to your skin tone and apply it with a lip brush for precision and a clean finish.

The key to recreating this look is a flawless foundation. Create the perfect canvas with a primer. If you suffer from pigmentation, select a primer to even out your skin tone. Use a light dewy foundation that will give your skin a natural glow and conceal any blemishes or redness with a creamy concealer. Contour  your cheekbones with a light bronzer and add light wash of colour to your cheeks with a powder blusher. Set your complexion with a translucent face powder.

To complete this clean look, hair is styled into a sleek, deep side parting. For a toned version of this look, simply part the hair and brush it into a low ponytail / low chignon. Spritz hair with a medium hold hairspray to prevent flyway’s and you’re good to go. If you are feeling a bit more daring, work a wet-look gel through your hair before combing it a low ponytail / low chignon.

    I love her eyebrows because they are easy to maintain and her skin looks flawless. Brow shaping sessions at the salon can be time consuming.
