Get the look: Single girl Cara Delevingne's fuss-free Valentine's makeup

30 JANUARY 2013

Stunning Cara Delevingne may only be 20 years old but this London model has taken the fashion world by storm with those infamous brows making her the Brit It-girl of the moment.

Launched into fame as the face of Burberry Beauty alongside the dashing Les Miserables star, Eddie Redmayne, before going on to debut alongside the Victoria's Secret angels, it came as no surprise when Cara won her place as Britain's 'Model of the Year'.

Naturally, the dazzling blonde has her fair share of male attention. But after a brief relationship with One Direction singer, Harry Styles, Cara has shown she's all about having fun with the girls such as friend and popstar Rita Ora, with the duo regularly spotted hitting the town in London and Paris.

Away from the runway Cara's look is edgy and smoldering. Her rock-chick pout and full-bodied lashes set off her androgynous features and enviably thick brows – perfect features for a low-maintenance yet showstopping effect.

But with speculations that she may be the new face of the French cosmetics line, Yves Saint Laurent, Burberry fans of natural nude tones may soon see the model sporting a more colourful look, with YSL known to covet a love for the red lip.

And the model got beauty gossips talking recently when she tweeted about her trip to Paris this January hinting at the new collaboration:

"Just finished my last day shooting @YSL cosmetics! Feeling like a baby doll!"

Smoulder on Valentine's Day with Cara's fuss-free look:

FACE 
For that Burberry glow, mix two pumps of radiance enhancing primer with your regular foundation for effortless sheer coverage. Skip the concealer to keep the look natural but focus on sculpting sky-high model cheekbones by buffing a highlighting bronzer such as Burberry's Light Glow Earthy Touch for defining illumination.

BROWS
Cara's coveted brows even have their own Twitter account (@caras_brows) which the model regulary tweets. But even if you're not gifted with this statement look it's easy to replicate. Pencils are great for adding feathery definition whereas brow powders will give a more naturally full look. Try the Hi Brow kit by LaLa available at Sally for a foolproof result, or simply use an angular brush to create the effect and top with a coat of clear mascara to set your brows in place.

EYES
A fond fan of the feline-flick, begin Cara's smoldering eye makeup by blending a dusting of sheer taupe shadow into the socket area and lower eyelash rim for added definition before taking a fine-line brush along the upper lashline with gel eyeliner. Finish with a couple of coats of volumising mascara and sweep a light reflecting pencil such as MAC Chromographic along the waterline to make eyes look whiter.

HAIR
Cara's lengthy blonde locks are kept swishing and glistening – even off-duty – with a spritz of dry shampoo. It's the easiest way to keep your hair effortlessly preened whether you decide to wear it up or down and a dusting of mattifying powder rubbed into the roots finishes off the look with an edgy feel.
