Top Lana Del Rey Looks

Sophisticated Class With A Twist

You’ll often see Lana Del Rey sporting a bright red pout and exquisite eye liner flick. Despite this style usually creating a fiery vibe, Lana gives it an edge of sophistication and class.  Define your best features and perfectly cast shadows on your insecurities with Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring. Achieve the precise eye liner flick with Daniel Sandler Black Velvet Waterproof Eye Liner and finish by sweeping on some Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Mayfair Red Lady. This lip stick is perfect due to the moisturising rehydrating qualities as well as high pigmentation for bold shades without the drying issues caused by many lip colours. Easy to recreate and gives you the ultimate confidence you deserve!

A Daring Touch of Confidence

Lana Del Rey’s other signature look is slightly more mysterious with darker shades and delicately mystifying eyes giving her a slight grunge aura. We absolutely adore this look which she tends to flaunt in music videos and you can secure it with a dark berry lip shade such as the Lord & Berry 20100 Lipstick Pencil in Diva and a sprinkle of Pixi Fairy Dust Eye Shadow in Brightening Bare to brighten and define with a touch of secrecy. We think Lana would approve!
