When I grow up… I want to be Cara Delevingne
As the face of Burberry two years running, you could say that Cara Delevingne is the very definition of a Brit ‘it’ girl. She’s just splendid, isn’t she? I’ve got quite the girl crush, and I just can’t quite seem to shake it. I don’t want to either.
She’s like a super beauty – incorporating the very best bits of other ah-mazing Hollywood A-listers to create one very minxy, long-limbed piece of perfection.
Seriously, check it.
I see Camilla Belle’s brows, Jennifer Aniston’s mop (in an even longer, more tousled version), Taylor Swift-style baby blues, Miranda Kerr’s perfect pins and a lush dollop of London style a la her muse, Kate Moss.
Want to know how to get her look? I thought you’d never ask…
Get her EYES:
Reow. I’m feelin’ feline just by looking at Cara’s sultry set of peepers. But don’t fret. They’re easy to mimic – all you need is a bronze shadow to highlight your eyelids, and a killer flick of eyeliner. Your dynamic duo should be made up of Maybelline New York EyeStudio Hyper Diamonds Quins Eye Shadow in Bronze Diamonds and essence Eyeliner Pen. Check out our video on how to achieve the puurrrrfect eyeliner flick.
Get her BROWS:
Camilla Belle eat your heart out. These are the thickest, most amazing set of face framers we’ve seen since Brooke Shields’ screen debut. To get the look yourself, firstly admit yourself into ‘Benefit brow rehab’ – which involves absolutely no plucking for a whole month (followed by a visit to a Benefit Brow Bar). Once your brows are in shape, grab your best brow products and watch our video on how to properly fill them in…
Get her COMPLEXION:
For skin that looks ‘lit from within’ like Cara’s, make-up on its own isn’t always enough. Start by using a skin-perfecting serum that will help to inject much-needed moisture back into your skin, which in turn will leave a plump, healthy-looking complexion, as well as deal with any unevenness. Next, choose a foundation that will leave you looking all awesome and airbrushed, like Revlon ColorStay Whipped Créme Makeup. Watch it at work in our demo video, here…
Get her HAIR:
Oh dear, Jen Aniston won’t be pleased when she has to give up her crown as the A-lister with the most luscious locks. Yep, it seems that Cara has come out on top in the hair stakes, and luckily, it’s super simple to get the look yourself – just don’t tell Jen. First, treat your locks to a weekly helping of a super-nourishing hair treatment. (We love Sukin Protein Hair Treatment for its cocktail of naturally-nourishing ingredients like aloe vera, calendula and chamomile.) To copy her style, simply watch our video on how to achieve beautiful brushed-out curls. To make them subtle like Cara’s, don’t tong each section of your hair for as long as you normally would – around two seconds should do it.
