The Best Celebrity Day Make-up Inspiration

It’s easy to fall into the same rut when it comes to your day makeup, because we’re creatures of habit – and busy ones at that.

Once we find a product that a) is suitable for application on the train, and b) lasts ages – we stick to the same look, of course.

But after a while we *will* be scanning Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest (and our mates selfies) for some new make-up inspo…

Here’s our pick of 6 stunning celebrity day looks that we are totally going to copy next week.

1. Emily Ratajkowski

We’re totally in love with every beauty look from Em, who manages to combine a smokey-eye with a light, nude lip and still look completely casual. Double points go to Emily for forgoing the contouring trend (which we’re kind of bored of, tbh) in favour of dewy skin and minimal highlighter. To recreare this look, don’t go too heavy on the powder to avoid the matte, caked-on effect.

2. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

The perfect summer-brunch face is demonstrated here by the gorgeous Rosie, who keeps it fresh with a little blush, mascara and grey eyeshadow. And those amazing brows haven’t gone a-miss either…

3. Jourdan Dunn

Flawless comes in the form of super-model Jourdan, who has managed to sculpt a makeup look so impossibly-pretty that we’ve had to track down the makeup artist responsible for her look (Renee Garness, FYI). To try this ‘no makeup look’ for the daytime, go light on the brows and eye makeup, and heavy on the highlighter and concealer around the eyes.

4. Charlotte Crosby

Geordie Shore star, Charlotte definitley knows a thing or two about crafting a killer makeup look, and often posts selfies for her 4 million Instagram followers to covet and copy. We’re massive fans of this bronze-heavy look with heavily lined eyes and a matte brown lip. It has a touch of the Kardashian about it, don’t you think?


5. Gigi Hadid

When you want to contour for the day, take your beauty notes from Gigi, who manages to pull off a subtly-sculpted face, complete with mega-lashes and a shiny nude lip. We LOVE.


6. Zoella

YouTube queen Zoe Sugg is known for posting makeup tips to her legions of followers, and no wonder her looks have garnered her a huge following; she never gets it wrong. For daytime glam like Zo, pair some ruby red lipstick with defined brows and a few flicks of mascara – perfect for the post-office/college drinks, too.
