Why Michelle Keegan Has Become Our #1 Beauty Icon

It seems we all want to look like Michelle Keegan.

According to a survey by The Harley Medical Group, one in five UK women reckon the ex-Coronation Street actress’s stunning looks are the most enviable out there.

Yep. That’s a big ol’ 19% of us.

So why do we want to emulate the Keegs? Well. According to the stats, it seems we’re moving away from contoured looks favoured by stars including the Keeping Up With The Kardashians ladies.

Instead, we prefer Mich’s more subtle beauty look. And we can totally understand why, have you SEEN her holiday photos?!

Other ladies we’re obsessed with include Blake Lively and Catherine Zeta-Jones, who are also famed for preferring traditional make-up styles.

But what about the Kardashian/Jenner clan?

> Kim Kardashian is a big fan of contouring


Unfortunately for them, they didn’t fare so well. Only 3% of women love Kim Kardashian’s contouring, while a teeny 2% are in favour of Kylie Jenner’s plump pout. Oo-er.

But these results don’t come as too much of a surprise when you consider the rest of the survey.

It seems as though regular women find some celebs’ looks a little over the top, with 86% citing they’re not influenced by those who’ve undergone cosmetic procedures.

‘Overdone’ lips are the biggest no-no when we’re considering getting a treatment, with 37% of us fearing that we’ll end up with that dreaded ‘trout pout’.

If we DO choose to undergo any kind of surgery, 61% of us are more inclined to opt for low-key enhancements in order to maintain a youthful appearance.

In fact, we’d actually prefer if if we’re the only ones who notice the changes. And 42% of us wouldn’t even tell our friends or families what we’ve had done.

Interesting. If there’s one thing we’re taking away from this, it’s that Mark Wright is one lucky man…
