Singing superstar Dua Lipa is known for her catchy, dance-pop hits but her fashion and beauty influence also can't be understated.

The Grammy Award winner, famous for songs like Dance the Night, Levitating and new release Houdini, has just had that style influence recognised, being named Global Makeup Ambassador for YSL Beauty.

The star has been working with the French luxury fashion and beauty brand as the face of Libre perfume since 2019, but the newly announced title extends her role with Yves Saint Laurent.

To start with, Dua Lipa will front YSL’s upcoming ‘Loveshine’ collection of makeup products, including glossy lip colours, that focus on creating the illusion of light.

Dua was chosen for the role at the L’Oreal-owned brand because she brings an ‘electrifying energy,’ said Stephan Bezy, International General Manager, YSL Beauty, explaining she inspires women “to not just wear makeup, but to make a statement about who they are and what they stand for.”

“Her influence is a celebration of individuality, a statement of empowerment, encouraging everyone to embrace their unique beauty with confidence,” says Bezy.

Taking major inspiration from Dua Lipa’s confident, ‘owning it’ vibes, we look at some of the star’s key beauty rules she sticks to for her public appearances.

Pair statement-making hair with a subtle makeup look

The star recently transitioned her glossy black locks to a vibrant cherry-red hue, propelling the existing trend for red hair hues forward. But ever since, she’s favored a more tonal makeup look, prioritising lush moisture on her lips and radiant, healthy-looking skin.

Brush up your brows

Bold brows have been a thing for years now, but the way to wear them in 2024? Defining their shape by brushing up and setting with a glossy brow gel, rather than adding any more colour that might make them look too blocky or obvious.

Love liner for a glamourous night

When she wants to up the intensity for a more formal evening event, black eyeliner comes into play. It could be smoked out and sultry or a sharp liquid line, but it’s always paired with a soft, rose-nude or understated lip colour, anchored with lip liner.

Hair doesn’t have to be perfect, but it does have to be shiny

She loves a sleek Hollywood wave as much as a tousled, beachy vibe but one thing’s certain when it comes to her hair – it’s always in fabulous condition. We can almost guarantee she makes acquaintance with a regular hair mask or two.

Bring out the sparkle when it’s time to dance

Given Dua Lipa’s penchant for a playful disco moment, it’s unsurprising she’s also a fan of  metallic shine on the eyelids, and even a flash of colour, like pale pink, pastel blue or lilac.
