Audrey Hepburn has always been an icon to me for as long as I can remember, and she made me love thick eyebrows. I don’t follow any celebrity in particular, but I like to see some looks Lisa Eldridge does with Keira Knightley, from time to time. She really gets her, and that often inspires me.

I hate to admit it, but Kim Kardashian. Love her contouring, neutral lips and above all, smoky eyes using shades of brown, usually metallic. This is EXACTLY the style of makeup I aspire to every day, minus contouring since I personally hate stuff caked on my skin. But for special occasions, why not.

Lauren Conrad, because her makeup is so simple yet so suitable for many occasions . I love her winged eyeliner and how she simply changes her lip color to create a different look. I also love Jennifer Aniston’s simple, yet pretty makeup no makeup look, she always looks so glowy and healthy. She makes the most of her eyelashes due to hooded eyelids, pink highlighted cheeks and nice rosey lip colors. On the other hand I also love Katy Perry’s bold, glamorous makeup.

Rihanna is the first to come to mind! She’s stunning and has beautiful features; she’s always daring with both fashion and makeup 🙂

Ditto on the not really following celebrities. As a natural segway from my obsession with Bones though, I do adore Emily Deschanel’s make up (and general style!). She always manages to look gorgeous while still letting freckles, blemishes, etc. show. I really admire that, because so many celebrities cake on the make up in an attempt to look perfect, and no matter how expertly it’s done, you can pretty much always tell in a hi-res photo.

I absolutely adore Kristen Stewart’s style and make up! She has the most amazing fashion sense (on the red carpet) and she’s just gorgeous 🙂

I like Dita Von Teese’s pin-up style a lot. Amy Doan is a celebrity within the make-up world, and her make-up’s pretty rockin’, too.

If I had to pick anyone I guess scarlett johansson. I like when she does the old school glam look. It works well on her. She makes simple look beautiful

I loved the makeup look of Mariah Carey in the 90ies. It was so natural and classic. I also like the makeup Sandra Bullock and Kate Hudson wore in several movies.

From tv series of cause the makeup of the SatC ladies (especially the eye makeup look of SJP) and the Gilmore Girls looks, pretty up-do-date but not too much.

JLo = Queen of the Smokey Eye. 🙂

Beyonce and Rihanna are really daring too.

As for chameleons or ladies who love to change it up, I like to follow Kristen Stewart and Emma Stone.

There’s an article about KStew’s makeup artist in the current Allure. Seems KS was resistant to red lips for a long time.

for me it would have to be Nia Long…her makeup is always glowy and somewhat understated with great impact…but i do think that’s attributable to her genetics more than the actual makeup lol

I don’t really follow celebrities. When I am looking for inspiration, I try and google celebrities with similar skin tones to mine. I’m slightly darker than Alicia Keys and Jennifer Lopez. I’m a little lighter than Beyonce. So I usually look to them for inspiration. In my opinion, celebrities don’t seem to have signature styles as much as years ago. So it’s just a matter of finding a picture of their makeup looking great and trying to copy or adapt that look.

I can’t think of any celebrities now. In the early 90’s I loved every [makeup] look that Christy Turlington wore. I am big fan and admirer of Lisa Eldridge’s style, makeup and otherwise, and a closet Kardashian fan! (but don’t tell my hubby!!LOL)
