Black women really have a blank card when it comes to make up. Our skin colour allows us to be so versatile, there’s virtually very few beauty looks we can’t try. If you’re looking for what beauty looks to try this week or are looking to try something new, here are a few suggestions.
We take a look at the beauty trends our favourite celebrities are wearing for this week’s beauty inspiration. Which look will you be trying?
1. Rebecca Ferguson out and about in London
We’re pinning for new mum Rebecca Ferguson’s bouncy, well defined curls. The singer wore her curls loose, allowing a few short tendrils to fall over her face. We dig the earrings too!
2. Rihanna out and about during Paris Fashion Week
Curls are definitely in all round ladies. Riri styled her wavy curls slicked back at the front so we can get a good view of her chic frames. She finished off her girl about town look with a pop of red lippy. This totally works for us.
One of our favourite Loose Women, Jamelia flies the flag for the braided trend. She’s even tried alternate lipstick shades to go with the look.
4. Alesha Dixon at Britain’s Got Talent Auditions
Whoever thought crimping was still in vogue? Ms Dixon is bringing sexy back with these slicked back locks. Well defined brows and a slick of eye shadow finish of the look perfectly.
5. Fade Ogunro goes blonde at the AfricaMagic Viewers Choice Awards
She’s arguably one of the most daring Nigerian media celebrities with her often risqué and daring fashion choices, so it was no surprise to see Fade Ogunro being one of the first black celebrities to follow in Kim Kardashian’s footsteps by going blonde. If Kim’s platinum shade is a tad too much for you, perhaps this more tamed colour could work for you.
6. Dakore Egbuson Akande at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards
We love Dakore’s look! It’s very simple, yet very chic. Nude lippy, a very good mascara for the lashes and a cheeky cut in the brows make this look a winner.
7. Rita Dominic frolicking in her bed
Our very own Nigerian Riri puckered up with one of our favourite beauty looks of the week. Favouring blush pink lips, blended metallic blue eye shadow and piling her curls at the top of her head for a very demure yet alluring look. We’re catching that kiss Rita.
8. Kerry Washington
The Scandal actress went for a bold look with a plum lippy and sheer foundation coverage. To highlight the lipstick even more, she wore her hair in high bun and kept the accessories to a minimum. Gorgeous!
