We’re taking some tips from our favourite neo-soul songstress
Erykah Badu is well known for her offbeat style as well as her vocal and song writing prowess. Due to perform in London this July, we take a look at some of her most memorable hair and beauty looks.
With her iridescent skin, red berry lip and a gap-toothed grin, Ms Badu is proof that it’s not just what make-up you wear, but how you wear it. Get a statement lip à la Erykah of your own, we love Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss Lipstick in Vampira (£17 Debenhams)
Sporting some formidable nose jewellery and a bandana, Erykah certainly isn’t afraid to forge her own style. While her stunning cranberry eyeshadow on the lower lid is the perfect complement for her hazel eyes. Get a similar look with MAC’s Eyeshadow in Oh My Mocha! (£13.50 maccosmetics.co.uk)
