When it comes to any supposed "New Rules" regarding beauty trends, Dua Lipa makes and sets her own. Her every appearance — whether through an Instagram post or a walk down the red carpet — is one to emulate, and as Dua Lipa's beauty evolution demonstrates, there might not be a look she hasn't yet tried. In celebration of the release of her new album Future Nostalgia, due out March 27, you can take a look back at some of her best beauty moments.
From her chunky bangs to colorful eyeshadow, the face of YSL Beauty has proven she's one to watch on the red carpet and on social media. Whether she's cramming two major manicure trends into one colorful style or making a case for accidental bangs that end up looking totally fierce, the part-time workout instructor doesn't shy away from changing up her look, especially when it comes to her usual beauty routine. As the singer previously revealed to Elle, even on her off-duty days she tries to keep her makeup fairly minimal. "It takes 15 minutes max," she said of her routine. "I stick to foundation or concealer, mascara, eyeshadow and bronzer and then I'm out the door."
Your own efforts at DIY bangs might not end up quite as stylish, but that doesn't mean you can't take a cue from any of the singer's past and present looks. Below, scroll through the sparkles, bold lipstick coloring, and surprise haircuts that have defined Dua Lipa's beauty evolution.
