Celebrity makeup looks, how-tos and tips

Be it at the red carpet or a photo shoot, you will never see actress Angelina Jolie without winged eyeliner and nude lipstick. Why? Because her signature look is simple yet soooo sexy.

I did a similar look today and I swear I turned a few more heads than usual *lol* Want to nail the look for yourself too? Then check out the tips below!

I have been watching Mariah Carey’s old music videos and my favorite one is definitely Breakdown from the Butterfly album. In the vidoe, Mariah spotted 3 different looks – a glittery gold eye look, an ultra femme blue eyeshadow look and a sultry smoky eye. I personally like the sultry look the best but now that spring is here, here is a breakdown of the last look.



I *love* reading Japanese makeup magazines for inspiration (I think the Japanese have the best makeup for Asians) and right now I’m really digging Koda Kumi’s makeup for her newest single. Pairing different bright colors is my all time favorite look.

For this look, I would suggest using the following:

Eyes
* Baby blue eyeshadow on entire lid (try MAC Fade)
* Darker blue eyeshadow on outer corner (try Urban Decay Goddess)
* Dark purple eyeshadow on lower lashline (try MAC Parfait Armour)
* Black liner on top and lower lashline (try MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack)
* Lots of black mascara or even falsies

Lips
* Frosty pale pink lipgstick (try MAC Pervette)

Finally saw Japanese manga-based movie Nana and needless to say, I really liked it. Although I was never into the punk look, I have to say Mika Nakashima looks *really* good in it. Everything about her just looks so awesome – her hair, her clothes and of course, her makeup! And since one of Nana’s major looks is smoky eyes (my favorite), I am going to write about it today.
