I have several beauty icons but they are all women that, while gorgeous in my opinion, are also quirky, strong, intelligent, and independent. You will never hear me say that Marilyn Monroe is a my beauty icon. I prefer women like Pink, Bif Naked, Alanis Morrisette, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, and Helen Mirren.

I bet that it looked wicked. She’s definitely not mainstream in her appeal but I love her! She’s so nice in person too.

I have always really liked Jennifer Aniston’s style…but lately I have really been getting into Ashley Greene. Her and I are the same age, and i wish i could dress like her…even though i know she has a stylist. Oh! or Blake Lively.

I don’t really have one either. If for some reason I was forced to choose someone, I’d say Angelina Jolie because she’s a goddess. I also love Cara Maria Sorbello from the MTV Challenges. She’s absolutely striking.

i got into celebrity women because I have always suffered with acne and wanted to know what they used for perfect skin. So I would pore over tons of magazines to find the “celebrity formula”. Took me years to discover that they also have issues with skin. Their advantage was heavy makeup and lighting! They suffer from the same crap we do!

Natalie Portman…then followed by Charlize Theron, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez, Mila Kunis, Jessica Alba, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly.

You!!!You are smart,independant,opiniated, and beautiful…what more could I ask for?!!! Temptalia is my go-to for beauty info 🙂 Could not ask for a better beauty icon in my opinion…you are a great idol 🙂

Makeup artist wise it would be the amazing Lisa Eldridge and Kabuki. I too have never been very into celebrities but I LOVE Nicki Minaj’s and Katy Perry’s style.

Maybe Isabella Rossellini (I think one of the beauty houses – maybe Lancome – used her as their “face” for a few years) because I think she’s gorgeous but she’s also intelligent, funny, self-depricating and never seemed to take her role as “beauty icon” too seriously.

Yes I agree totally ! She is beautiful and so versatile
She always looks different. What a beauty w style!!!

She was the face for Lancone for years – then they dumped her when they came out with a new line that was for aging. She would have been perfect for it, but they wanted to target the 30 something market. If you have seen Isabella in the past 2 yrs you almost would not recognize her – she has really, really changed looks – she looks like she is maybe close to 72 and she is not I know – but she always refused never to have any cosmetic surgery – so ya wonder how much was airbrushed out in the days she was ‘the face’ of Lancome???

I, too, don’t have a beauty (or celebrity) icon, but, I’ve always enjoyed Oprah’s makeup. Reggie’s a wonder mua. It’s amazing what mu can do to improve on ones’ appearince.
