Natasha Bedingfield used her “one voice in a million” to rock out on Live with Regis & Kelly. I was thrilled to do her makeup again and even more excited when she chose a nearly neon pink lipstick to go with her signature lush lashes. Natasha wore Le Metier de Beaute mascara, the Dior 5 Couleurs Designer Palette in 708 Amber Design (the same type of palette worn by Nora Zehetner for the CFDA Fashion Fund awards), and Lancome Color Design Lipstick in Wannabe.
Natasha’s hair was done by Ricardo Rojas of Ricardo Rojas Salon.
Have you bought Natasha’s new album “Strip Me” yet? If not, download it here via iTunes. Definitely buy the deluxe version for some videos of Natasha singing live in studio. I was listening for inspiration while packing my kit the night before the show. Natasha’s best known for her happy songs like “Pocket full of Sunshine”, “Love Like This” and her debut single “Unwritten”, but I’m a big fan of her ballads also. My favorite track on the new album is called “Recover.” After a break up, you listen to “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis, but if you’re in it till the end, listen to “Recover”. On a personal note, I’m hoping the next song I’ll catch myself singing in the shower is “Timid Song” by Our Lady J (sigh).
