Celebrity-inspired beauty bucket list

One of the best ways to get out of a beauty rut or find inspiration for a new lip color or hairstyle is to look to your favorite celebrities. If your beauty routine is in need of a boost, we suggest trying a signature celeb look on for size. From ultra-red lips to look-at-me lashes, we’re rounding up some iconic looks to try this winter.


Kim Kardashian’s

Kim Kardashian’s smoky eye

The reality TV star, mom-to-be and girlfriend of Kanye West is known for a lot of things, but when it comes to beauty, it’s her trademark smoky eye we love. If you’ve never tried the look, we suggest taking a page from Kim’s book and creating her sexy, sultry smoky eye for your next date night or party.

Tired of your longer locks? Craving a big change when it comes to your tresses? Why not follow in the beauty footsteps of Michelle Williams, who has been well known for her perfectly cropped pixie cut for several years. Book a consultation with your stylist to discuss the best short look for your face shape and hair type.

Katy Perry’s
ultra-long lashes

Katy Perry’s ultra-long lashes

Not only is pop princess Perry known for her colorful locks (pink one day, purple the next), but she’s also almost never photographed without ultra-long, look-at-me eyelashes. So we say go beyond one coat of your usual mascara and try adding some false lashes (a few strategically placed sections should be fine) and then add a few extra coats of mascara to make your peepers pop.

Jennifer Aniston’s sun-kissed locks

Jennifer Anniston’s sun-kissed locks

Aniston has always been known for her hair (remember “the Rachel”?), but these days her hair look is more about the sun-kissed highlights than choppy layers. If you have dark blond or light brown hair, you can easily recreate the look with some highlights. Ask your stylist for a lighter look (as if you’ve just spent a few weeks in Cabo).

Gwen Stefani’s red pout

It’s not often that we see Stefani without her signature red lips, and the vibrant choice suits her pop-glam look to a tee. If you usually steer clear of red lips in favor of pink or other lighter hues, we dare you to go bold! Add a red lip color to your makeup bag and embrace your inner vixen.

Dita Von Teese’s retro glam look

We’ve always loved Dita Von Teese and her chic take on embracing retro beauty. Even if you only go for it once, look to Von Teese for some makeup and hair inspiration and get out the hot rollers. Add a red lip and matte skin and you’re ready to add retro glam to your list of beauty looks.

Jessica Alba’s beachy glow

Say goodbye to pale skin and go for the glow instead. Either find a good quality self-tanner for the face and apply carefully to create a sun-kissed glow, or add a dusting of bronzer to the spots the sun would normally hit your face (nose, chin, forehead).

If you’re used to wearing a lot of makeup, give your skin a break and use Paltrow’s barely there beauty look as inspiration. Skip foundation in favor of tinted moisturizer and opt for a lighter lip gloss rather than lipstick or stain.

Camilla Belle’s full brows

Trade over-tweezed arches in favor of fuller brows like those on timeless beauty Camilla Belle. Her brows are still well-shaped and expertly groomed rather than messy, but they’re still natural-looking. Once you have the shape you want, put the tweezers down and go for a fuller look.

Adele’s winged eyeliner

Add some serious drama to your eyes by adopting Adele’s signature winged liner look. Using a liquid liner, place the tip at your innermost lash and draw outward. Make the line thicker as you go and then flick outwards at the corner for eyes that look larger.
