Beauty Looks From 3 Of Our Fave Pop Stars – And How To Recreate On A Budget!

The world of music has always been a place in which people can truly be themselves - portraying their individuality through their songs, their outfits and of course their beauty looks.

And some of our favourite singers and artists have had iconic looks over the years. So, to continue our ‘Sing, Dance, Love, Repeat’ theme for a little longer, we thought we’d share some of our favourites!


Katy Perry

It's not only in Katy's 'California Gurls' video that her hair and makeup is candy coloured! A bright eye, a bold lip and, of course, perfectly pastel locks is clearly a loved look of this pop megastar when she's not in front of the camera too. Especially during her pixie cut days in 2018!

Whilst many of us would only be brave enough to wear either a bold eye or a stand outlip at once, Katy Perry has never shied away from rocking both at once. And she always looked incredible whilst doing so!

Katy's colourful style made you want to spice up your look? Us too! And if there's one big change we really wanna make, it's the colour of our hair! Colourful locks are easy to achieve - even without hitting the salon - and, in case you're intrigued but not sure you're 100% committed, can be semi-permanent too.

Also add colour to your look through eyeshadow and eyeliner! Pair either of these bright products with black and you're good to go! Or, if you're feeling brave, why not mix two completely different, yet still extremely complimentary colours (think opposites on a colour wheel - blue and orange, purple and yellow)!


Ariana Grande

Pop royalty Ariana's look is a classic. Timeless and elegant, it starts with flawless bronzed skin. An Ariana eye look isn't complete without a chic winged eye, seriously long lashes and a creamy neutral shadow. And, of course, there's always a glossy pout too.

Oh, and who could forget her seriously enviable hair! We'd give anything for ours to look as luscious and glossy. Whether she's wearing it down or it's pulled back into a high pony, it's always super sleek.

If Ariana's your makeup inspo, we know exactly where you should start when it comes to the beauty buys you need. Your essentials? A seriously lengthening and volumising mascara, and a trusty liquid liner that'll help you craft your cat eye wings with ease!

When it comes to the hair, super sleek tresses might not be an instant thing. But it doesn't mean they're not easily achievable... Why not try treating your locks to a weekly conditioning treatment? And make sure you're always protecting your hair from heat when styling too!


Dua Lipa

Pop princess Dua’s makeup is as fun as her music! She’s very frequently seen with a bright bold eye look (that often matches her outfit) - and we love it! Not one to do things by halves, she definitely isn’t afraid of experimenting with colours and finishes to create a bold makeup look.

To copy any of Dua's eye-catching looks, you're going to need an array of eyeshadow palettes! Because whilst having one or two trusty go-tos is good, having all the colours of the rainbow to your disposal - so you can always match your makeup to your mood - is a must!

So, if you're in need of multiple, you're going to want them on a budget, yes? Of course. Well these beautifully bold, budget friendly, eyeshadow palettes are our faves!

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
