While it is nice to think that your favorite celebrities roll out of bed looking that good, they put as much effort into their faces as we do. Sometimes even more. Sure they have access to the highest quality make-up available, and these stars have certainly mastered how to use it.
Rihanna – When it comes to making lips stand out, no one is doing it better than Rihanna. Make some adjustments for skin tone by using a bluish red for fair skin, brick red for medium skin like Rihanna’s and brownish red if you have dark skin. Start with a flesh toned lip liner and then apply the lipstick using a brush. Top it off with a sheer gloss and Rihanna just might invite you under her umbrella.
Jennifer Lawrence – The smoky eye is still smoking, and Jennifer Lawrence has the look down pat. To make your eyes look as intriguing as hers use your finger and pat dark brown or gray shadow on to the lid. Then all you need to do is take a fluffy brush and blend it together to achieve this smoldering look.
Viola Davis – Let’s make a pact to buy one eye liner that is not black or brown and wear it proud like Viola Davis does. She has learned how to add a sparkle to the eye by applying shades of green and amethyst around the edges of her lids.
Katy Perry – Our favorite pop artist is also the queen of the manicure. Her customized nails are to die for and not at all easy to achieve. She’s currently on tour now, and is never far from her adorable Spaniel-Poodle mix aptly named Butters. Rumor has it that she travels with a containment system for the dog so that her pooch can enjoy all the comforts of home without fear of running off. These wireless pet containment systems are not a bad idea if you have a pup that is constantly trying to mess with your make-up.
Zooey Deschanel – Who wouldn’t want to look like this beauty? You can get her retro vibe by using a strip of heavy false eyelashes on the top. If you have never used these before, a simple trick to get them to stick is to apply in the center first and then press down towards the eye before applying to the outer corner of the lid.
As you can see, celebrities have quite a few tricks up their diamond studded sleeves when it comes to achieving a fresh look. With a little patience and the right tools, any chic girl can get the same effect, at a fraction of the cost.
