Paloma Faith cut her teeth in the world of burlesque and cabaret, so it's no surprise that her beauty looks are bold, dramatic, and often influenced by the past. This is not a star who you'd ever see at a film premiere with a sleek ponytail and simple makeup. Paloma's looks are powerful and intricate and probably take hours to create. Pin curls, quiffs, pompadours, victory rolls, hairpieces, and hats all feature heavily, and she often sees her hair as just another area to add accessories. From oversize sausage rolls to unexpected fishtail plaits, here are some of Paloma's most memorable beauty looks.
Songstress Paloma Faith has been a front-row fixture over the last few days of London Fashion Week, and she hasn't exactly blended into the crowd. With her long locks freshly dyed a brighter shade of red than ever before, she obviously wanted to make the most of that new 'do. Whether she wore her hair in retro-inspired waves or twisted and coiled into intricate updos, her LFW looks were a lesson in how to make retro work for the modern day. By switching out her bright lipstick shades and finishing the looks with huge blooms and an array of hats, she kept things fresh as she moved from show to show. What we want to know is which look you loved the most! We've narrowed it down to three to help you decide.
Music festival season in at its hottest with Wireless and T in the Park continuing on right now.

Take a peek at the fun and funky beauty looks that so far from onstage to backstage!
Last night in London, all of the fabulous faces in music gathered at the 02 Arena to celebrate the 2013 BRIT Awards. Taylor Swift flew in from across the pond to heat up the cold red carpet wearing her hair straight and sassy clad in Ellie Saab, whilst the London fash pack like Jourdan Dunn and Alexa Chung also made an appearance.

British pop star Paloma Faith has an exciting out-there fashion sense, but when it comes to her lipstick she likes the traditional approach. Often seen at events wearing a slick of bright red across her pout, Paloma certainly knows how to work the timeless classic look. She told The Telegraph it was her cousins who advised her on makeup from the age of nine:
"They all had their icons — I chose Madonna. I'd try to copy her look from the Vogue video, carefully drawing on a beauty spot. One cousin taught me how to do the lipstick: 'apply, blot and re-apply' was her method, and she'd always go a little over her lipline to make her pout look bigger. When I was old enough to wear lipstick I followed her advice, always opting for a red shade. I passed the tip on to my mother, who liked a hot-pink lip."
Do you follow the apply, blot and re-apply method?
Velvet, satin, netting, lace and sheer fabrics were all on display at the Dark Shadows premiere in London last night. Michelle Pfeiffer wore a satin burgundy strapless Lanvin dress with Sergio Rossi peep toe heels for the UK premiere at Empire Leicester Square, while Helena Bonham Carter was unsurprisingly eye-catching in a Vivienne Westwood frock with heaps of netting. Chloe Moretz embraced British culture by wearing a red McQ Alexander McQueen AW12 dress in velvet and broderie anglais. Her costar Eva Green also went for velvet in Tom Ford, while Bella Heathcote wore lace Pucci and Paloma Faith was in sheer Dolce & Gabbana.

It's not just you and me who tweet to the world about their favourite beauty finds. Nope, celebrities do it too. Of course it's questionable if they are getting paid to do it, or if they are just sharing their opinions, considering that Kim Kardashian and Soulja Boy get paid up to £6,000 per tweet (hard to believe, isn't it)? I'll let you be the judge. Check out these five tweets from Lady GaGa, Paloma Faith, Louise Roe, Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole and let me know if you think they're pimping something out, or if they're simply just showing their love.
Last night, celebrities and theatre fans gathered together to watch opening night of Cirque Du Soleil's performance of Totem at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Paloma Faith certainly got in the spirit matching her face makeup to her dress, whilst Donna Air kept things simple in a black mini with a Peter Pan collar. Eva Herzigova walked the red carpet in ruched burgundy dress and Frankie Essex sported a tight, bright coral frock for the festive affair. Out of these four looks, whose do you like best?
