We couldn't believe it when make-up artist to the stars Lisa Eldridge revealed the make-up she used on Cara Delevingne for the DKNY Artworks party she hosted last week. Lisa said," As Cara was wearing a skintight uber cool DKNY monochrome jumpsuit, heel wedges and ear cuff the look we went for was a tough, lived in, winged smoky eye. The make-up needed to sit well with her whole look so I kept skin and lips very natural looking, young and fresh." Shop all the products Lisa used on Cara below.
Walking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday, Cara Delevingne left everyone a little breathless looking we think, her most beautiful yet! Wearing an incredible plunging black lace Burberry dress with Chopard jewellery to The Great Gatsby premiere, the Brit beauty looked every inch a Hollywood star - maybe there's a future career there the camera clearly loves her! If you liked Cara's look, shop a similar selection of super sexy, black lace dresses from Nelly below.
Earrings are always an essential part of our everyday look, but one must have style which we love right now is the 'ear cuff' or 'curved earring' as this new earring trend is also being called. Cara Delevingne has been wearing the look, teaming an incredible diamond ear cuff with a ballerina bun, adding a modern edge to a formal outfit while still keeping the overall look sophisticated. Shop the ASOS Love Rocks leaf burst ear cuff (£30), which is a similar style to Cara's cuff. Alternatively, you can buy curved earrings that go up the ear giving a cuff effect, like the Farfetch Luxury Fashion crystal stud earrings (£156.65).

Cara Delevingne walked the Chanel AW'13 ready-to-wear show at Paris Fashion week and the collection of both monochrome and bright boucle wool jackets teamed with chain detail biker boots had an ultra modern edge while still managing to maintain traditional Coco Chanel style.
Karl Lagerfeld said about the collection: "I want her to look like what I showed you. The boots make the legs endless, and the colors going up, even if it's in darker colors, as it's better for the women, it's very uplifting."
The Burberry show at London Fashion week was an extra special one for us, because we were given exclusive access to the backstage area to spend time with the beautiful Cara Delevingne and Burberry chief make-up artist, Wendy Rowe.
All of the make-up used backstage was Burberry. Wendy Rowe said: "The Burberry make-up look is polished and confident, you want to feel comfortable in what you're wearing. That way you're always going to pull it off. I am keeping the skin fresh and natural while the collection itself has a nod to the 60's so the eyes are strong with gel liner and plenty of mascara. But I also wanted to keep the look modern by adding a luminosity to the eyes to reflect the gold accents in the collection." Create a similar fresh face look with Burberry Sheer Fluid Foundation (£35).
Cara Delevingne's own philosophy to make-up is very similar to the Burberry one. Her top beauty tip is simple: "Don't wear too much make-up, it's always best to keep your look natural, let your natural beauty come through. Emphasize your features instead of covering them up. So many girls wear too much make-up. It's always best just to keep your look natural. Oh and have great eyebrows!"
The lip look was important because the collection is called 'Trench Kiss'. Wendy said: "The lips are a nude pink, fresh pretty and most importantly kissable!" Get the look using Burberry Lip Glow (£18.50).
Wendy used darker shades of foundation to sculpt and contour Cara's face. Once the base was complete, Wendy further contoured the cheeks using Burberry Light Glow Earthy Blush (£29) for the most natural finish effect.

Did you manage to catch the Burberry AW'13 live show earlier? Or maybe you would just like to see it again and frankly we don't blame you! Because it comes as no surprise that Christopher Bailey's hotly anticipated London Fashion Week show certainly lived up to expectations. Showcasing an incredible model army including Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Jourdan Dunn and Karlie Kloss walking the catwalk in monochrome and animal prints with gorgeous metallic accents, the show did not disappoint injecting a glamorous spark into our autumn wardrobes!
Official Burberry make-up artist Wendy Rowe told us backstage about the collection: "There's a definite nod to the 60's with the collection, so I wanted to give the girls a strong eye, but also light, luminosity and glimmer to reflect the gold accents in the designs." Wendy also gave us a little tip before watching the show. "Take a good look at the prints. Just when you think it's animal print or polka dots, it's a print made up of different sized hearts. Super sweet!"
But of course it wasn't just the designs or models that caught our attention but the front row. Attracting a huge array of stars including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Olivia Palmero, Tinie Tempah, Rita Ora and Anna Wintour to name just a few of our favourites. Enjoy the spectacular show once again below!
The perfect poster girl for cool Britanna, brilliant Brit model Cara Delevingne has made her first Vogue cover. Appearing on the March issue, Cara wears gorgeous on trend monochrome Giorgio Armani against a summery blue background. But it's her mesmerising eyes, those trademark brows and directional make-up look that really caught our attention, we love the combination of nude eyes and lips with smouldering eyes for spring. Recreate Cara's cover girl look using our personally picked out products below. It certainly has been a busy week for Cara, who only yesterday tweeted her first short film modelling for Zara where she again looks breathtakingly beautiful dancing in a floaty dress on a beach.
But true to form, Cara is modest about her success which is exactly why we love her! She told Vogue: "It doesn't really sink in until you actually see it - that cover, that actual magazine, you know Vogue is so great; especially the March issue is the big fashion issue, the big thick one, it's gonna be pretty amazing, I'm gonna run out of the shops with 20 in my hand just like 'Oh my god! this is me!'"
Here's a cool way to keep warm this weekend courtesy of Cara Delevingne! A neon hat will turn heads on the greyest of days and this design from Dimepiece we think would also make the perfect head gear if you're a skier or snowboarder setting off for the slopes! That said, whether you enjoy this very specific kind of 'street' style or not you can still buy into the trend. Neon is big this SS'13, we'll be wearing it with a hot pink Christopher Kane biker jacket (£440) which would clash beautifully with an Alexander McQueen Scarf (£200) from Selfridges.
