Known for her killer vocals and unique style, Jessie J has been a chameleon when it comes to makeup – from bold looks, to more recently, natural-looking ones. Here are seven of our favourite makeup looks from her music videos:
1. Intense, crazy lashes!
“Do It Like A Dude”
It was really hard to find a still of Jessie in this music video. Her bangs were covering her eyes most of the time! Nevertheless, after watching the MV a couple of times, it looked like she had silver eyeshadow all over the lids and incredibly dramatic lashes- top and bottom. She also had a berry coloured statement lip. Don’t forget to line your waterline and add a dramatic winged eyeliner if you want to copy this look that’s great for parties!
2. Thick, black eyeliner and nude lips
This is a toned-down and more wearable version of her makeup in Do It Like A Dude. To replicate, dust gold eyeshadow all over your lids. Proceed on with creating your winged eyeliner by using a gel eyeliner with an angled or liner brush. Try using the Maybelline Gel Eyeliner. It’s affordable and a great alternative to the Bobbi Brown and MAC gel eyeliners! Don’t forget to line and smoke out the lower waterline and lash line with a black pencil eyeliner and eyeshadow. To complete the look, use a nice peachy nude lipstick.
3. Dramatic winged eyeliner and violet lips
This is another bold look for one of Jessie J’s feel-good songs, Domino. (It’s a great getting ready song too!) She has on a silver-and-black smokey eye with glitter at the centre of the lids. And the star of the show (other than Jessie herself) is the statement winged-eyeliner! To achieve such a crisp line with your eyeliner, try using tape or a business card to guide you. For the lips, we recommend using NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague, as an affordable alternative.
If you’re willing to splurge, the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Fanny is a quite a close match to the colour she’s wearing in the video too!
4. Copper eyes and coral lips
“Who You Are”
If you can tell, the looks we are featuring are gradually more wearable. Use a copper coloured eyeshadow (DV Tip: We recommend trying out MAC’s Eyeshadow in Woodwinked!) and just line your lower waterline with black eyeliner. Put several coats of mascara on and finish off the look with a muted coral lip colour.
5. Defined lashes, bold lips and bronze skin
Unlike the previous makeup looks, she has slightly bronzed skin here. So bronze up the skin if you feel like you’re looking a little too pale. Opt for a bronzer with a subtle shimmer to give the appearance of sun-kissed, glowing skin. Again, dust a neutral eyeshadow all over the lids and define the lashes with mascara, but make sure your lashes look fluttery and not spider-y. Here, Jessie is sporting another violet lipstick shade that’s similar to the one she wore in Domino.
6. Red, Matte Lips
It’s that simple, just a neutral red lip with a matte finish! If you want, you can line your top lash line with a black pencil eyeliner and smudge it out slightly to define the lash line.
7. Fresh and light
In one of her latest videos, she wore a clean and fresh look that’s very different from what she’s usually known for. All you have to do is use a light concealer and use that to conceal the areas that you want to cover (e. g. Under the eyes, areas with redness). Set the concealer in place. Fill in your brows, dust on a peach-toned blush on the cheeks, and top it off with a peach or coral tinted lip balm, instead of a heavy-coloured lipstick.
