    Five Celebs Who Give Us Extreme Body Envy

    There are so many gorgeous celebrities out there that it can be hard not to take a few minutes to stop and stare at their pictures online! We ask ourselves, is that real? And how can I get a body like that?! Celebrities have the luxuries of being able to afford personal trainers and health coaches. They have cooks and dietitians who will give them premium advise and train with them daily in order to get the best results. They have the cash to flash and can spend it on the latest ‘must have’ beauty product or expensive treatments.

    While us mere mortals might not always be able to compete with them in that department, we can still dream! It’s inspirational to look at who’s hot so we have something to aim for. Here are just a few celebrities currently causing major body envy around the world with their jaw-dropping looks.

    Jamie Dornan

    Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 13.56.30

    The 50 shades of Grey star has just taken to the big screen to play the highly regarded Christian Grey. This super-fit actor seems to bare a lot of himself in the movie, and it looks as though he’s got no problem with that at all. And why would he, when he looks that good? The film is on many women’s lists of movies to watch this weekend. Whether you are a fan of it or you’re steering clear after some bad reviews, there’s no denying that Jamie Dornan has a great body that most men would be envious of!

    Rihanna

    RiRi has been looking smouldering hot for a few years now. She has a fantastic body and isn’t afraid to show it off. Her tattoos have become a real trademark now for the star. Do you have tattoo envy when it comes this superstar or would you be asking how much does tattoo removal cost? If you were in her shoes.

    Kendall Jenner

    1KENDALL-JENNER-ABS-facebook

    She’s part of one of the biggest and best celebrity families and has become a model and a star in her own right. Kendall Jenner has a toned, beautiful body that will have men falling weak at the knees and women hitting the gym! It helps that she seems like a very genuine and down to earth person as well.

    Brad Pitt

    Angelina-Jolie_brad-pitt_glamour_23sep14_rex_b_720x1080

    He’s definitely still got it! Ever since his Fight Club days, Brad Pitt has maintained a great body and it’s certainly paid off as he’s now married to one of the hottest women on the planet. He is one of those rare celebrities who seems to get better and better with age, and his choice of movie roles is ever expanding and diversifying. Angelina Jolie is one lucky lady.

    Stephen Amell

    stephen-amell-body-arrow

    Best known for starring in the hit TV series Arrow, Stephen Amell trains rigorously for his role. He has a great body and both the show and Stephen are gaining a huge cult fan following that show no signs of slowing down. He’s also got a heart of gold as it was revealed he granted a grieving mom’s wish. If only everyone in showbiz was this nice!

    VIP Beauty: Berry Lips By MAC

    Lips made from the deepest merlot red wine and a pout that’s dark and dangerous. Vamped up lips are back to give your look some bite this autumn.

    DARK LIPS

    From intense plum hues to blushing berry reds, our celebs are wearing splashes of colour from every dark fruit in their basket.

    VANRIHCAR

    Vanessa Hudgens tries out a burgundy matte finish and looks to-die-for. The rich colour compliments her skin tone so well and makes for a great contrast to her blonde ends. Rihanna’s lips are purple and powerful and the deep plum colour really accentuates the shape of her lips. Cara Delevingne stains her lips with a red wine satin finish and looks ever so stylish and elegant.

    All three lip styles are bang on trend and you can try them out, so go ahead and discover your dark side with MAC cosmetics. MAC offers an overwhelming, endless range of lipsticks to transform your lips into pout perfection, but I’ve handpicked the best looks for this season.

    DIVA

    mac-lipstick-diva-2

    Diva is a dark, sexy red tone that gives your lips that extra plump and looks great combined with a smoky eye. It provides a matte finish but it’s still quite creamy so it won’t dry out your lips. Wear this burgundy beauty with MAC Nightmoth lip liner.

    CYBER

    mac-satin-lipstick-cyber

    If you like edge and a lot of it then you must purchase Cyber. It’s a dark and daring blackish-bruised grape tone with a satin finish. With this lipstick, keep the rest of your make up toned down and simple because a splash of cyber is honestly all you’ll need. Match your perfect purple pout with MAC Vino lip liner.

    HANG-UP

    HANG UPP

     

    For a juicy berry stain pick Hang-Up. It’s a reddish plum colour like Diva but has more pinkish tones. This sultry shade has a cremesheen finish which gives it more of a shine than satin would. Cover your lips with this ripe cranberry red and finish it off with MAC Nightmoth lip liner.

    LINGERING KISS          

    MAC-Lingering-Kisssssssssss                                                                                                                              

    Part of MAC’s recent A Novel Romance collection, Lingering Kiss is a deep blackened plum shade. It can be described as a mix of all of the above. Lingering Kiss is plum red like Diva and it shares Cyber’s wine-like tone, but it’s not as dark and deadly.  It has hints of Hang-Up’s red hue and gives off a matte finish. Use this unique tone with MAC Currant lip liner.

    Try them out and let us know which one’s your favourite!

    Get The Look: Balmain Ponytail

    It’s sleek, it’s sexy and it’s so hot right now. Since Kendall Jenner showed up alongside a Balmain army at the Vogue Foundation Gala during Paris Fashion Week, her center parted do hasn’t seemed to have left.

    Kendall

    The dark-haired beauty has walked in many shows this season sporting many different looks, but her hair has stayed still slicked back without a strand out of place.

    Kendall Shows

    Iconic supermodel legends, Iman, Naiomi and popstar royalty Rihanna also featured in a stunning Balmain spread for W magazine, with all three beauty’s donning a similar silky centered parted hairstyle. Their whole looks scream sleek, strong, edgy and ready for Balmain domination.

    Rihanna-Iman-Naomi

    And it seems as if our celebs just can’t say no to the new trend at hand.

    hairCollage

    Ciara (top right) showed up at Paris Fashion week with a Balmain inspired ponytail falling down her back. Even Kim Kardashian couldn’t resist the center-parted pony that her sister brought back this autumn. Jessie J also followed the Balmain trend with a tight all back, wearing it well.

    There’s no doubt that this timeless hair do is here to stay. It gives off a sophisticated and polished vibe because it’s such a simple style. Drawing your hair back in a sleek low pony also helps to highlight your face structure, putting your cheekbones and jaw line on show.

    This look is extremely easy and quick to achieve. Just get that hair super straight and trust me, you’ll be Balmain ready in less than 5.

    (1)  Use a tail comb and give yourself a center parting.

    (2)  Get some gel and a soft bristle brush and smooth your hair back. I would advise VO5’s Styling Gel Mega Hold in order to get that super slicked, sleek look.

    (3)  With your hands, smooth your hair back into a low ponytail holding it tight.

    (4)  Keep one hand clasped around the ponytail and use the other hand to take out a medium sized piece of your hair from the bottom of the pony.

    (5)  Use this piece to wrap fully around the pony keeping it tight.

    (6)  Secure your pony with a bobbing pin.

    Get the look and tell us what you think! Tweet us @livelikeavip or find us on Instagram LiveLikeAVIP

    How To Contour Like Kim Kardashian

    The Kardashian sisters raised their cheekbones high and their faces, sculpted instantly. Together they helped to introduce one of the most influencing make up techniques of all time.

    Kardashian Sisters

     

    I think we can all agree that when it comes to contouring, Kim Kardashian takes the crown.

    Kim

     

    Kim spilled the beans when she posted a candid selfie exposing her methods for make up success to the world. Around the globe celebs have been highlighting their faces in order to achieve the same flattering effect.

    Jennifer

     

     

    Rihanna

    Doesn’t Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna look stunning all contoured and highlighted? This is because contour and highlighting helps to enhance the structure of your face by both pushing forward and drawing backward specific features. It slims your face with the use of light and dark tones to make parts of your face look smaller or bigger, as well as lifting your cheekbones and giving your jawline a bit more definition. The whole point is to create a triangle of light (like the one in the photo below) on your face so light is focused on your eyes, nose, lips and cheekbones.

    Triangle Of Light

     

    Yes! The secret behind the magic has come out and contouring and highlighting is no longer a trick only known by celebs and top makeup artists. Now everyone can join in on the glam and you don’t need a big fancy makeup kit to do it.  You can purchase the super affordable Sleek MakeUp Face Contour Kit for just £6.49. Inside the kit you’ll find a lighter shade and a darker shade. You should purchase the kit that isn’t extremely far from your normal color, but is a few shades darker and lighter than your normal tone. Just choose from between the light, medium and dark shade kit and get to work with it.

    Now here’s your how to.

    (Use the photo below as a guide for areas to highlight or contour)

    How-To

     

     

    (1)Complete your face with foundation, as you normally would do.

    It’s important that the following steps aren’t done too heavy otherwise you’ll end up looking more drag queen than beauty queen. Apply lightly and add more if needed after.

    (2)To start highlighting your face, with a brush use the lighter shade of from the Face Contour Kit to fill in the area underneath your eyes, just underneath your eyebrows, along the T-zone (down your nose and across your forehead) of your face and just above your cupids bow on the top of your lips.

    (3)To begin contouring your face, use a soft fluffy eye shadow brush applying the darker shade to the crease above your eyelid.

    (4)Use an angled face small brush and apply the darker shade to the sides of your nose, following its original line. If you don’t follow your own nose line and apply it in a straight line, your nose will end up looking unrealistic.

    (5)Use the same brush to apply the darker shade gliding it around the upper hairline, just under the hollow of your cheekbones back out and on your jaw line. Follow the motion of a 3.

    (6)After this you may want to go in and apply some bronzer on in the same places as stated in the above step

    (7)Now blend the sides of the shades together.

    And there you have it. High cheek bones and a sculpted face.

    Here’s my attempt. It works right?
