How to recreate the feisty Londoner's glam look

NDubz singer Tulisa Contostavlos has become a household name overnight thanks to her starring role as a judge on this year’s X Factor.

And the 23-year-old is looking lovelier than ever. Added to her spot-on fashion sense, her make-up is always flawless.

Here, celebrity make-up artist to the stars Alice Theobald shows us how to recreate the feisty Londoner’s glam look.


"As always, begin with cleansed skin," she says. 

"Using the Benefit foundation brush, apply Giorgio Armani’s silk SPF foundation to create an even finish using benefit foundation brush.

"Take a powder brush and dust Chanel Natural Finish loose powder over face to set foundation.

"For defined eyebrows like Tulisa’s, use Browsing in dark by Benefit.

"Dip the angled applicator into the wax and define the arch. Using the brush, apply the powder to enhance and set the eyebrows.
"For Tulisa’s eye make-up, take YSL waterproof black eyeliner and draw along the inner and outer lash line, making sure to smudge and blend.

"Complete with lashings of Diorshow waterproof black mascara.

"For cheeks, apply blusher lightly for a rosy glow.

"For the finishing touch, apply the Laura Mercier lip pumping gloss in wild berry."

Top tip: For extra glamour, add Eyelure 100 false lashes.
