It’s mid-December and the holiday season is upon us. This means holiday fashion trends are out in full force, and so far we’re loving what we’ve been seeing! Though there’s been a flurry of new trends recently, Cara Delevingne showed us that sometimes new isn’t necessarily better.
A picture of the actress surfaced on Sunday of her sporting a bright cherry-red lip color and red nails to match. The stunning starlet is seen in a collage of four different pictures, each a progress shot of her blowing a kiss to the camera.
Delevingne’s lipstick and nail color stole the attention from her iconic bold brows and striking ice blue eyes, which is no simple feat. Wearing her long brown locks in their natural wave, the actress looked naturally beautiful despite her bold makeup choice. Her simple yet festive makeup is the perfect Christmas Eve look that keeps it pretty and low- key.
Cara’s Go-To Makeup Tips
Cara Delevingne always seems to look effortlessly beautiful, whether we spot her on the red carpet on in a paparazzi shot on her way to the mall. She looks just as fabulous in sweats as she does in a designer gown, and it’s all thanks to her stunning features. Her naturally bold brows and strikingly blue eyes make her a unique beauty, and we’re thankful she doesn’t have a crazy makeup routine that bogs down her natural look. We aren’t the only ones that are curious about Delevingne’s beauty routine—Vogue caught up with her to find out her hair and makeup tips.
When asked about her go-to makeup tips, here’s what the Suicide Squad actress has to say: “Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils is one of my favourites – and eye brow gel of course! Also Touche Eclat is a must have when you are travelling all the time.”
In addition to her makeup routine, skincare is a huge part of the beauty tips that Cara Delevingne had to share. With an emphasis on organic skincare products, the actress shared with Vogue that her favorite brands include Claudalie, Clé de Peau, and MV Organics.
