In Praise Of Female Celebrities Who Always Nail Their Beauty Looks

We're all for natural beauty, but sometimes, playing with makeup can be way more fun and the female celebs below are proof!

Whenever they step out onto the red carpet, their beauty games are on point. Whether sporting bold smoky eyes, bright lip colours or a perfectly contoured face (hey Kim Kardashian!), these ladies, and their makeup artists, appreciate the power of cosmetics.

And sure, we know they all probably look gorgeous without it, but we see nothing wrong with adding a little drama sometimes.

Just take a look at a few celebs who always nail their beauty looks.

  • Joan Smalls

    The model, who always looks gorgeous, isn't afraid to take risks with her beauty looks. This pretty lavender eyeshadow is just one of her many great makeup looks, with her awesome purple lipstick coming in at a close second.
  • Coco Rocha

    Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha loves going for the high drama look, especially when it comes to makeup. We can always count on her to play up her feline-like eyes with perfect eyeliner, shimmery shadows, and full lashes.
  • Rihanna

    When it comes to fashion and beauty, RiRi is an all-around risk taker (and we love her for that). She's not afraid to make a statement with her beauty looks. From green lipstick to super smoky eyes (seen here) she can pretty much pull off anything.
  • Kerry Washington

    Whether going for a sweet and simple look or something a little more dramatic, Kerry Washington always looks great. We especially love when she opts for bold lip colours, like this beautiful bordeaux shade.
  • Emma Stone

    Emma Stone is one of our all-around favourite people right now, and when it comes to fashion and beauty, she's always #onpoint. She's often seen rocking bold lip colours (remember that awesome fuchsia shade she paired with her amazing yellow Versace gown?), or accentuating her big green eyes with smoky shadows and heavy liner (as seen here).
  • Dita von Teese

    We can always count on Dita to bring the old school glamour. The modern day pinup is basically the poster woman for a classic red lip and winged liner. She wears the look perfectly.
  • Kristen Stewart

    The badass fashionista is generally seen wearing shimmery or smoky shadows, which perfectly accentuate her stunning green eyes. Her beauty looks always complement her ensembles so well!
  • Zoe Kravitz

    We can't help but love Zoe Kravitz's unabashedly cool style. No matter what she's wearing, she always looks great, and girl knows how to wear a bold beauty look. Just look at how well she's rockin' this dark smoky eye makeup!
  • Dakota Johnson

    Dakota Johnson's career was catapulted this year, thanks to her role in "Fifty Shades Of Grey," and with each appearance, we were so pleasantly surprised. The actress has proven that she's not afraid of a little colour, especially on the lips.
  • Mila Kunis

    Mila Kunis likes to play up her gorgeous eyes, often opting for heavily lined lids and perfectly groomed brows. And while she doesn't need a ton of makeup (or any, really) we think she pulls off bold beauty looks like a pro.
  • Chrissy Teigen

    A natural beauty, Chrissy Teigen isn't scared of playing up her beautiful features. She's proof that a little bit of highlighter (especially on the cheekbones) goes a long way, and that contouring really can look good. Now if only we could learn to do it ourselves...
  • Sarah Hyland

    Sarah Hyland is a great example of someone who likes to play with makeup. The young star often experiments with her beauty looks, but always tends to stick with bold eyes and brows. We especially love when she rocks shimmery shadow and bold lashes (as seen here).
  • Diane Kruger

    While Diane Kruger's beauty looks often seem understated, we'd argue that they still pack a punch. Everything from her flawless complexion to the shimmery shadows she favours are paired perfectly, giving her a flawless look wherever she goes.
  • Katy Perry

    The singer is no stranger to a bright and bold beauty look, but we like that she also brings the drama with moody, dark lipsticks, like this one here.
  • Lupita Nyong'o

    Lupita Nyong'o is a beauty superstar. The actress always looks amazing, and never shies away from a bold look. We've seen her rock colourful eyeshadow and bright lipstick, and we love it all.
  • Lady Gaga

    It probably comes as no surprise that Lady Gaga is on this list. The singer is all drama when it comes to hair and makeup, which just adds to her overall performance. And while she's a beauty even without all the makeup, we love how she just has fun with her beauty looks. Because, why not?
  • Kim Kardashian

    Kim Kardashian is another lady who appreciates the power of makeup. The contouring queen never leaves the house without sporting her signature look of groomed brows, heavy mascara, and nude lips, and we see nothing wrong with that.
  • Tyra Banks

    Tyra Banks is all about smizing, and what better to way to show off your gorgeous peepers than with some expertly applied eyeliner?
  • Kylie Jenner

    The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner klan can seriously teach us a lesson or two about makeup application. Her skin, brows, and eyelashes are always #onfleek, and her lips have been the talk of the town for what seems like ever. And while people try to mimic her look, it doesn't always turn out quite right...
  • Jennifer Lopez

    Jennifer Lopez is a great example of someone who likes to try new things with makeup. Sure, she's got her go-to looks, like contoured cheekbones, full lashes, and a nude lip (a la the Oscars), but she also plays around with colours, like copper (as seen here).
