Key Points

  • While Dua is mainly known for her bold and playful makeup looks, there are also times when she decides to go with a fresh, glowy face of simple makeup.
  • A true Dua Lipa makeup look is known for being vibrant, glittery, and full of shimmer.
  • Whether it’s stars or pearls, Dua Lipa can be seen using sparkly accents and embellishments in her makeup looks to add a dramatic touch.

1. Dua’s “No Makeup” Makeup Look

Dua loves a bold and playful look, but there are also times when she decides to go with a fresh, simple look. Dua’s makeup artist, Lisa Eldridge, is a master of the “no makeup” makeup look which gives the illusion that the face is bare and dewy as if you just hopped out of the shower but still look incredible. According to Eldridge, the “no makeup” look is one of her favorite looks to do and one of her most-watched tutorials. Dua has been seen sporting the look recently, especially in her Versace campaign in 2021. To achieve this look, there are plenty of products to choose from, but Glossier is always great for a subtle look, especially when it comes to creating feathery brows like Dua’s. 

Products to Use:

2. Icy Blue

In true Dua fashion, a Dua Lipa makeup look is known for being vibrant and sure to grab your attention. Dua is known for glitter and shimmer, just like this icy blue makeup look from her “Physical” music video. Blue is 100% her color, often mixing different shades of blue to give more depth and playful touch to the look. In this particular look, Dua’s makeup artist mixes vibrant cerulean with teal shades to give it the perfect cool-toned vibe.

3. Pop of Color in the Inner Corner

When it comes to Dua Lipa makeup looks, you can often find her with a vibrant pop of color in her inner corner to brighten a dark or simple makeup look. In this look, Dua is sporting a bright yellow eyeshadow in her inner corners while the rest of the makeup airs on the simple side. It makes sense that this look was used for Dua’s album cover, as it plays into her unique music era of fantasy and futuristic (2).

Products to Use:

4. Two-Tone Eyeshadow

For a classic Dua Lipa makeup look, playing with colors (often more than one at one time) is key. For The Moonlight Edition – the deluxe version of her album – Dua sported a two-tone makeup look. With orange in her inner crease and purple in the outer crease of her eyes, you would think the contrasting shades would clash, but it totally works! This multicolored eyeshadow look is an easy way to go for a bold vibe while not being impossible to achieve at home.

Products to Use: 

5. Three-Tone Eyeshadow

You thought Dua was done with two-tone eyeshadow? Think again. This three-tone eyeshadow look uses green, silver, and purple on different sections of her lid for the cover of Future Nostalgia. While the look may seem complicated, it’s actually a great look to recreate for makeup lovers and beginners because mixing shades with shimmery shadows can add depth while hiding small errors in the blending. 

Products to Use:

6. Met Gala Look

Although it didn't happen in 2022, this Dua Lipa makeup look for the 2019 Met Gala still lives on thousands of Pinterest boards today because of how iconic it was. The theme that year was camp – think extravagance and over-the-top looks, not s’mores and campfires. Eldridge went all out with Dua’s makeup to match the vibe of her incredible dress and hairpiece. To achieve this look, Eldridge went with matte black and glittery purple liners with two sets of fake lashes laid at the outside of Dua’s eyes for maximum shape. Basically, Eldridge didn’t apply lashes as you normally would, starting at the inner corner, and instead placed the front of the lash in the middle of Dua’s eyelid for a more dramatic lash look.

Products to Use:

7. 60’s Mod Look 

The mod eye makeup made popular in the 1960s by fashion icons such as British model Twiggy and international superstar Cher involves overlining the crease of the eyelid and exaggerating the lower lashes. With these looks, the makeup of the '60s helped enhance and add depth to the features while being fun and playful. Now, the trends of the '60s have made their way to 2022, as beauty influencers all over TikTok are bringing the look back (3). Dua is no exception and has sported the overlined crease and exaggerated lower lash look on several occasions. 

Products to Use:

8. Bronzed and Neutral

When Dua goes for a simple makeup look, you can often see her looking bronzed and wearing neutral brown shadows on her lids. This look is perfect if you want to recreate a look of Dua’s but want to opt for something that works for a daytime or casual event. Or, use this as your simple daily makeup routine. It’s not over-the-top but still manages to look effortlessly cool and chic, as most Dua Lipa makeup looks do.

Products to Use:

9. Dua’s “We’re Good” Look 

To recreate Dua’s makeup look from her “We’re Good” music video that is almost reminiscent of Lydia Deetz’s makeup in Beetlejuice (who Dua has been for Halloween), you’ll need red shimmery shadow. While it’s unclear if Dua’s makeup artist for this look used the same shade on Dua’s cheeks or a darker red blush that mimics the eyeshadow color, you can really opt for either product depending on what you feel most comfortable using. The main thing that matters is that the color is put all over the eye and blended down onto the cheeks.

Products to Use:

10. Play with Stickers

Whether it’s stars or pearls, Dua Lipa can be seen using sparkly accents and embellishments in her makeup looks to add extra oomph. If you’re not comfortable recreating Dua’s bolder looks, wearing tiny pearl or star stickers with your makeup is a great way to emulate Dua with less effort while still creating a memorable and unique eye look.
