Best Celebrity Make-up Looks

1. Marina and the Diamonds- Primadonna

 I may be biased as I am a huge Marina fan, however her make-up in the Primadonna video is undeniably effortless, yet dramatic. The strong brows feature prominently, framing her face and accentuating her eyes; whilst the somewhat subtle eye look contrasts perfectly against the richness of the strong plum lip she wears. The white eye liner appears to highlight her eyes, drawing light upon these features. To complete the look, she contours her cheeks subtly with bronzer to create a somewhat intense, yet natural look. To top it off, she seals her look with her signature 'heart' on the left side of her cheek, alluring to her character. This is one of my favourite make-up looks as it uses all the technicalities of make-up, without appearing too overpowering, exuding effortless 50's glamour.

2. Kim Kardashian
 Kim Kardashian is undoubtedly, astonishingly beautiful. However, her make-up adds to this considerably and, in my opinion, she always gets it right. Similarly to Marina, she wears a strong brow with flawless skin. Her eyes are heavily lined with black kohl, and her cheeks are contoured to emphasize her already strong cheekbones. Kim pairs this look with a nude lip, topped off with gloss to make the look more natural.

3. Mila Kunis
So Mila Kunis always looks stunning, and her make up always continues to amaze me, (not just due to her unbelievably good genetics). Her make up look here is simple enough to wear day to day, her brows are always perfectly arched and not 'overly done'. Her eyes are framed with black kohl in her inner lids, and she wears a soft grey shadow to bring out her stark green eyes. She layers her lashes with lots of mascara to make her eyes instantly pop, teams with flawless skin and natural lip. Perfect!
4. Miranda Kerr

I'm sure we'd all love to be a Victoria Secret model like the gorgeous Miranda Kerr, however with the right make up it is more possible than you may think. The secret to the make up of one of these beautiful models is carefully bronzed, golden, yet natural looking skin. Dust a bronzing powder all over the skin with a hint of shimmer, paying extra attention to the temples and cheekbones. Light eye shadow is crucial, especially in the inner corners of the eyes to really enhance the brightness of the eyes and make them seem wider, followed by natural looking false lashes to add thickness. Finally, a sheer lip gloss is essential to looking spectacularly glamorous! 

5. Katy Perry

Katy Perry always exudes glamour due to her skillfully applied make up. This look is particularly effective as I believe her imagine is completely transformed due to the power of make up, she is almost unrecognisable, however still stunningly beautiful. Her signature perfect brows remain strong and thick, shaping her face and setting the eyes into focus. She wears a strong black, thick eyeliner which completely enhances and widens her eyes. I would recommend a gel formula such as that of Bobbi Browns, to get that perfectly striking eye look. The rest of her look is kept fairly natural to allow the eyes to be the main focus.
