Welcome to the latest instalment of our beauty series, Chicspiration. We’ve previously featured the fabulous hair and makeup looks of Beyonce and Kourtney Kardashian, so now it’s time to cast our eyes to the UK…no, not to the Olympics! Come on now, which website did you think you were visiting?! To a pop star that I’ve had a girl crush on for quite some time.
Today’s Chicspiration is…Cheryl Cole.
Cheryl started her music career as part of the band Girls Aloud and has since forged a successful solo career. Cheryl’s latest single ‘Call My Name’ is getting high rotation on my iPhone right now and if you want a fashion hit of neon, floral and clashing prints, then I suggest you check out the music video. One word – HOT! And so is this hair and makeup look…
This is a makeup look I would definitely wear and one that I think would suit most people. It’s simple and beautiful, and would be perfect for a night out on the town.
Firstly, blend a rosy/coppery/mocha coloured eyeshadow over the lid, winging it out slightly and also underneath the lower lashline. Line the upper and lower waterline of the eye with a great waterproof pencil to really define the eyes. Then go nuts with your favourite mascara to get those lashes fluttering up a storm.
Finally, finish up with a bubblegum pink lipstick or lipgloss and you are ready to hit the dancefloor!
Cheryl has the most amazing hair. It is long, thick, shiny and she always rocks it with heaps of volume, so it makes a nice change to see Cheryl with her hair up and off her face. In this look, she is working the ultimate ballerina bun - high, full and textured.
To achieve a ballerina bun like this, you’ll need a hair donut. If you don’t have one, you can get one here. All you have to do is pop your hair up into a high ponytail, slide it through the hair donut, wrap it around and pin.
For the ultimate tutorial on the perfect top knot, check out this post by Christina from Hair Romance.
Now, here are some products to get your
pop career Cheryl-inspired look started…
