Anyone that’s ever watched a few seconds of pop singer Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video has seen and been captivated by Emily Ratajkowski. The London-born, American-raised Ratajkowski was a child actress that eventually became a Ford Model. Since the 2000’s, Ratajkowski has been featured in print ads, covers, and most prominently in music videos for performers as varied as TI, Maroon 5, and Pharrell Williams. Now that she’s also appeared in films such as David Fincher’s Gone Girl, Ratajkowski’s fanbase is huge with many wanting to know the “Blurred Lines” model’s beauty regimen. Emily Ratajkowski’s beauty tips and makeup favorites are readily available and easy to acquire.

A DIY Ethic

Even though she’s got a stacked modeling and performing CV, many people might be surprised that Ratajkowski does her own makeup. If fans are looking for formal beauty tutorials, they don’t really need them—Ratajkowski keeps it simple in her own Do-It-Yourself ethic that anyone can adopt:

Step 1

Facial wash with Kiehls’ Calendula Deep Cleansing Wash or Sisley Cleansing Milk

Step 2

Moisturization with Sisley Black Rose Precious Oil

Step 3

Foundation and face with Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation OR a mixture of Hope in a Jar Moisturiser with Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup, Broad Spectrum SPF 20 (natural beige shade).

Plus she uses Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Magic Lip and Cheek Balm for her cheeks, Rosie for Autograph Starstruck Stick, and sets with Glossier Soothing Face Mist.

Step 4

Lips with Make Up For Ever’s Rouge Artist, Shade #9

It might surprise a lot of fans that Ratajkowski doesn’t like to use any eye shadow. For added eye definition, she likes to use Revlon’s ColourStay Liquid Eye Pen with Clinique’s High Impact Mascara used in combination. As well, her added skincare secret to keeping dry skin at bay is Aquaphor, a healing ointment commonly used by people like Kim Kardashian.

Separate Hair Care Notes

Another factor of Emily Ratajkowski’s appeal in music videos like Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” is her distinct long dark hair. She’s often joked that everyone she meets thinks she spends a lot of time ironing her hair straight or curling it with various hair care instruments. In fact, Ratajkowski washes with Bumble and Bumble Pret A Powder Shampoo, then uses a regular iron in sections on her hair, brushing it out at each point, then spraying it with the unique combination of L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray and Sephora Living Proof.
