Much like fashion, beauty trends are always changing, and red carpets just wouldn’t be the same without some quirky beauty choices from our favourite fearless beauty icons. Pulling off bold lips, extreme nail art and bright hair colours can take major confidence and these stars have used beauty to create their signature look. Often times the ‘less is more’ mantra is my motto when it comes to beauty, but these celebs make me want to slap on some glitter, over the top lashes and vibrant shadows – all at once.
Gwen Stefani – No one rocks a bold lip quite like this cool California rockstar. Gwen’s commitment to cherry red lips and platinum locks has led her to a beauty campaign with L’Oreal and inspired many other young celebs to follow suit (Check out Jay Z’s new artist Rita Ora). Gwen’s red lip and bleached hair combination is an edgy and youthful twist on the classic old Hollywood look.
Katy Perry - Katy’s candy land dream world also lends to her over-the-top and playful beauty approach. Katy is best known for her ever changing hair colour, in the last year she’s had just about every cotton candy coloured hue imaginable and even makes me want to get my hands on some electric blue Manic Panic ASAP! Katy also loves her nail art and once donned a manicure with ex-hubby Russell Brands face.
Rihanna - Rihanna always changes her look, she first stepped onto the music scene with a fresh faced look but as she gained fame, the ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ singer has experimented with hair colours including her fire engine red bob and sports her signature dagger nails at tons of premieres and award shows. It’s hard to forget about the black Tom Ford crocodile gown she wore to this year’s MET Ball, accessorized with two-inch black pointed talons, which reportedly took over two hours to create.
