Dua Lipa's 10 best makeup looks

Ahead of Dua Lipa's show in Singapore on 4 May, we round up 10 of the best 'New Rules' singer's makeup looks to inspire your next night out

It's hard to look at Dua Lipa and not fall head over heels. The dark-haired beauty is a stunner on paper, on record and in person, something we witnessed firsthand when she was in Singapore for a small showcase last May. After that short promo stop, her career's skyrocketed to greater heights, debuting her first full-length album in June, and subsequently performing in major festivals and American talk shows for hosts such as Jimmy Fallon and Ellen DeGeneres.

The Londoner of Albanian heritage has been raking up awards since her album release. Recently, she's leading the 2018 Brit Award nominations with best British female, single, album, video and breakthrough act. And what a breakthrough it's been — the singer is the youngest female artist in history to achieve one billion views on a music video on YouTube... in less than a year. We're talking about the pro-girlfriend advice hit 'New Rules' of course, a song one should always put on repeat if an ex slides back into your life.

While we're all too familiar with her ascent to pop royalty, beauty junkies are also taken to the songstress' faultless makeup looks. The former model has previously worked with M.A.C Cosmetics on a limited release, and continues to support the brand by way of her regular makeup artist, Francesca Brazzo. While we wouldn't go so far as to call Dua Lipa a beauty chameleon, we have noticed that she sticks to tried-and-tested looks to enhance her natural, prominent features: Iridescent eyelids, glossy lips and highlighted cheekbones. Amber and marigold are her go-to eyeshadow hues, which she often chooses as a bright bold pop or a winged-out look for a festival-ready edge. Then comes danger, dressed in a crimson under-eye dash.

Dua Lipa performs in Singapore on 4 May at Esplanade Theatre. Book tickets.
