Yes! Bella Swan’s wedding look for ‘Breaking Dawn’. I think quite a bit of people went crazy for that one. Though I don’t know how she got it to look a bit glossy? Here’s the link I found; http://www.bellasugar.com/Bella-Swans-Wedding-Makeup-Breaking-Dawn-20459191#read-more

Although not celebrities in a “traditional” sense, I do take a few tips every now and then from RuPaul’s Drag Race. I don’t try to recreate any look in it’s entirety, but there have been a few particular contestants whose style & techniques I have been drawn to. These aren’t “everyday” looks, but on the rare occasion I go out, I like to go to extremes; however, some of the techniques can be modified for a more wearable look.

Yep I’m obsessed with the makeup from Once Upon A Time. I was able to recreate Ginnifer Goodwin’s (snow white) look. I found an article online by her makeup artist!

Yes, definitely. Rarely to try and replicate a complete look, but I’ve done some digging to find a particular shade or product that stood out to me. I look a lot at Nina Dobrev in particular because we have almost the exact same coloring (hair, eyes, skintone, etc) so when something looks good on her, I can be almost certain that it will work for me, as well. Plus she always (alwaaaays) looks amazing, so I pretty much love everything she does anyway.

I saw a magazine cover once where Lady Gaga was wearing such a nice shade of gray/beige on her nails that it made me go out and buy nail polish again. You could say that the search for the perfect gray started my obsession with nail polish 😀

Yes just one and Im still looking.  Any help here would be great.  In the credits for ‘True Blood’ there is a shot of lips and cigarette smoke.  the lip gloss is the most beautiful deep bluey red.  I thought the True Blood collection last year would be my answer but it was waaaay too o rangy.  Since then, every new collection everywhere I ask to check out the red lip glosses.  Nearest I got was a revlon one but its still not perfect.  Checked out the fansites…noone knows…..

Yes, most recently I had to look up Rachel McAdams’ makeup from the film “Sherlock Holmes” when I saw a re-run on TV! 

Nope. I may see a photo of a celeb wearing a look that I find appealing and think in terms of replicating that look with what I have but beyond that,  a celebrity look doesn’t mean any more to me than any nice makeup look (and I can see plenty of those on youtube demos, which I prefer).

I’m not sure I’ve ever looked up the products a celebrity was using; I think I might have for something at some point. Although, I may see a photo of a celebrity, and if I liked some part of their makeup, and later hear they frequently wear a certain product then I might check out that product. For example, if I hear a certain celebrity frequently wears a certain blush, and I’ve always thought that celebrities face/cheek look looks nice then I will check out those products; it’s not so much that I like the celebrity or anything. I also love to create looks I see in music videos, especially the more fun, dramatic, and/or creative ones. I won’t look up products, but rather use the look as inspiration. I know I’ve recreated some looks from: Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, etc.

JLo is a good one too– her makeup in her videos is always creative and interesting (not so much color, but definitely technique).  She must have an awesome MUA.

not the exact products…they’d be expensive anyway…and they usually have different coloring so i just try to addapt things. i immitated rihanna’s look from who;s that chick(gold and copper with heavy eyeliner on the eyes, hot pink cheeks and lips) once when going to school (lol) and everybody loved it…said i looked like a doll. i rlly liked that look 😀

Not necessarily a celebrity, but I remember looking up how the red glitter lips from Hedwig and the Angry Inch were done back in ye olden days.  Now there would be tons of choices for products.

[email protected] I remember doing the same thing. That look was so amazing.

Many times I find myself lusting over the subtle smokey eye in many magazine spreads/covers/editorials. It’s not so much the products I want, it’s the skill I desire to execute the perfect eye!

I remember looking up the shade that Christina Hendricks wore in some Mad Men episodes. Ended buying Chanel Rouge Coco #31, which is not the exact one but a dupe close enough.

Of course, I’m still curious about the red lipsticks that Gwen Stefani wears! I heard she used to wear an Urban Decay color back in the 90’s, then something by MAC more recently. I’d love to look through her makeup collection!

Always! It started with Gwyneth Paltrow’s makeup in Great Expectations (scene at the Club) and her m/u in A Perfect Murder!
