An Ode to Dua Lipa’s Bold and Bright Makeup Looks

Can I hear a little commotion for the eyeshadow?

dua lipa

In a beauty world where the no-makeup-makeup trend continues to dominate, Dua Lipa's makeup aesthetic stands out. Her approach is high-energy, bold, and playful, especially when it comes to eye makeup. The looks are more is more: Think pearl accents, explosions of glitters, and dazzling pinks.

These vibrant, head-turning makeup looks do the same work as her music—they're both mediums used to express what makes her unique and offer an escape to an indulgent, over-the-top fantasy world. Keep scrolling to check out some of Dua Lipa's best makeup looks as well as the products you can use to recreate them at home.

Glistening Purple Eyeshadow

Opt for shimmery lavenders and vivid purples to create a technicolor moment on your lids. Keep the rest of your face simple with a lightweight skin tint and a nude gloss, so your purple shadow can really pop.

Orange Rust Eyeshadow

Whether matte or shimmery, orange eyeshadow deserves a spot in your makeup bag. The vivid color has an electrifying effect on the face, adding a much-needed jolt of color to any blank canvas.

Mismatched Hues

These multicolored shadow looks are like mini-mosaics on your eyelids. Pick two bold and contrasting shades, like Dua does here on the left, for an otherworldly look or create a colorful optical illusion by blending two similar hues on your lid.

Glittery Pink Eyeshadow

Channel Dua's energy and sweep on a high-impact glistening pink shadow—you'll see a constellation of mini-galaxies dancing on your lids, giving you a whimsical vibe.

Pearl Accents

You don't need a dramatic eyeshadow to create a memorable and mesmerizing eye look—accenting your liner with tiny accessories, like pearls, does the job. Pro-tip: use tweezers to place tiny pearl stickers along your lash line.
