This week we track some of mega-model-star Cara Delivigne's key looks and how to steal them for yourself. And trust me when I say there is a look to suit any style, that's how versatile kooky cameleon Cara is! Here are four of her best... Can you believe this is the same girl?!
Fronting luxe campaigns - for the likes of Chanel no less - Cara pulls off a classy look with ease. We love this shot of her rocking a subtle eye, smooth complexion and a touch of colour on the lips. To steal, start with your base. Here, Cara's complexion falls into the lovely area between matte and dewy, and I think it's thanks to her use of illuminator and a sheer coverage foundation. Start with a primer, like this lush one from MeMeMe to add extra hydration to your base. Next, for a light cover, try a mineral foundation and buff into the skin little by little to build the texture you desire. Adding a sweeping of illuminator to the cheeks, bridge of nose, forehead and chin will add a little extra luminosity! Try the Inika Mineral Illuminisor. On the eyes, deviate from your usual black liner and try a charcoal look instead, like this obsidian shade from Eye of Horus. Draw on a little more than usual and smudge, to skip a shadow and finish the entire look with a sweeping of rosey coloured gloss, like our fave Yes to Carrots Gloss in Carrot Kiss.
Following in many a famous Brit model's footsteps, Cara is also fronting one some the notoriously iconic Burburry ads. All about Brit beauty, clean-cut wholesomeness with a little extra London charm thrown in for good measure, Cara suits the brand to perfection. Plus, her beauty look from the campaigns is ace to steal for the upcoming Aussie winter. Fresh skin, natural lips, and a little highlighting thanks to illuminating shadows and sleek strands are the aim of the game. Start with the very basics, and make sure your skin's been exfoliated to remove any dullness and deter blockages. We love the SimuOlive Tebe Cleansing Polish which will leave your skin in the perfect condition for a light coverage, like the kind offered from bb star product, Erborian bb cream. Keep eyes neaturally classic with a touch of illuminating shadow, like this one ('shimmer') from ibeauty. On the lips, try a simple, yet hard working balm (again, ace for winter). I love Mox Botanicals, in Coconut Almondine. Finally, when straightening your strands to the sleekest levels á la Cara, be sure to use a nourishing protectant. Try an argan oil, like this one from Royal Moroccan.
One of our fave times of the year is the Victoria's Secret show time! Those pretty costumes, the awesome acts, and the line up of fab models strutting their stuff. We loved seeing Cara up there with the best of them, debuting her pretty in PINK look. To steal, get your mitts on some of the cutest prods out there. Start by prepping your regular base, but be sure to dab on some liquid illuminator to accentuate your cheek bones and cupids bow (a VS beauty trademark) Next, add some creamy blush to the apples of your cheeks. Our pick is the B By Bloom Col.lecta Colour Cheek Tint. A lengthening mascara will help you achieve flirty eyelash batting potential - try the Clinique High Impact Mascara. The lips take center stage here, but notice how VS have chosen a more worn-in pink thank a bright pigmented pop? To achieve, grab a pencil liner in a pretty pink shade - we love the super affordable offering from Designer Brands - smooth it all over your lips (not just around them) and blend in with your finger tips to heat and spread the product. Then, add a touch of pale pink balm, like this pretty Glamourflage prod on top. Voila! VS PINK, without being too pretty in pink. Cute!
Lastly, we HAD to mention Cara's crazy side! Described my Marc Jacobs as a 'goose' (in an endearing way) Cara always knows how to steal a scene whilst mucking up! And we love it! For a crazy beauty look, thats not too OTT, get your hands on some fun and bright products. Firstly, those nails! I'm a big fan of cute nail art, and love the ease of using a nail sticker set to perfect it. For leopard like Cara, try Kiss Nail Dress stickers in 'Sexy'. If you dare to rock a bold shade on your lids, why not try a bright aqua? Even though it's bright, the turquoise shade is also flattering against most eye colours. Or, you could reach for a glitter eyeliner instead! We love Bloom's Glitter Eyeliner in 'Stargazer'. Just don't forget to remove it properly - there's a reason Cara's skin always looks so good - she takes care of it! To get rid of face and eye makeup in a flash, try the cult Bioderma Crealine H2O. Last, but not least? A quick to use, easy to tote hair care product to help get that carefree 'unkempt' look with extra volume - a killer dry shampoo. Bastiste make a beauty, that's sweetly scented to boot.
And that makes 4! Which of Cara's looks most suits your style? Do you love this crazy cat as much as us? Let me know! - Lauren
