10 Celebs Who Don’t Need Makeup Artists to Look Gorgeous on the Red Carpet

2 years ago

How many times have you thought to yourself, when looking at photos of celebrities, “If I had their stylists, I’d look just as stunning!” We don’t doubt the fact that every girl can look like a Hollywood star. But it’s not about makeup artists. As it turns out, even some celebrities don’t always use their services.

We at Bright Side respect the skills and the bravery of the women in this article that do their own makeup for public events and the results are just as good as when they have professional artists do it.

Maisie Williams

In 2017, the star of Game of Thrones said that when she was preparing for the Q Awards ceremony, she didn’t have any professional makeup artists. Ollie Jackson, who was her boyfriend at the time, helped her. Maisie did the hardest part on her own: she applied the mascara, the bronzer, and the lip balm.

Eva Longoria

The actress has a team of experts at her disposal, but she sometimes prefers to do her own makeup. In 2016, the star of Desperate Housewives amazed her fans with her pink makeup. It was done so well that nobody guessed that the makeup artist was not a professional.

Kate Winslet

This Oscar-winning actress tries to do her own makeup when she is going to public events because she knows what looks good on her and what doesn’t. In one of her interviews, Kate admitted that she always mixes 2 colors of the foundation and tries to rely on powder less, “I have peachy fuzz on my cheeks, so I have to be careful with powder.”

Kate Middleton

Even though the Duchess of Cambridge has experts that help her, in most cases, she does her own makeup. It is a known fact that even on her wedding day, she did her makeup and it looked great.

Emily Ratajkowski

It’s not difficult to look great with the appearance that Emily has. And the model uses it to her advantage. She said that she doesn’t need the services of makeup artists very often and in most cases, she does her own makeup.

Meghan Markle

In 2018, during her first official tour in Ireland as the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan didn’t use the services of makeup artists. This doesn’t mean that she never hires experts. For example, for her wedding, she hired professional stylist Daniel Martin.

Gwen Stefani

Gwen has said many times that she doesn’t use the services of makeup artists. All the experiments with makeup: purple lips, rhinestones, and other things, are her ideas.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie regularly talks about her cosmetic techniques on her Instagram page, so obviously, it’s not difficult for her to do her own makeup. She said that the best part of her work has always been the process of doing the makeup and hairstyling.


Shakira not only does her pedicures but also her makeup. The singer does her own makeup for almost all public events, photoshoots, and videos. She says, “I usually wear a natural color on my lips and accent my eyes. I feel like the less makeup I use, the better I look. After so many years in front of the camera, sometimes, I think I look better now than 10 years ago when I wore so much! It’s important to let your own skin shine through.”

Selena Gomez

Selena loves beauty products. In 2020, she launched her own beauty brand and even appeared on a magazine cover with makeup she did herself. The singer also admitted that she loves experimenting with makeup and trying new products.

Do you have makeup artists that you regularly use or do you do your own makeup?
