Beauty File: Nancy Ajram
Nancy Ajram is touted as one of the most beautiful Arab women in the world. With her piercing, blue eyes, alabaster complexion, and infectious smile, the Vogue Arabia January 2019 cover star has captivated fans with her supernaturally flawless features since first emerging on the scene in 2002. Though its been almost two decades, the Lebanese crooner’s beauty look has ever so slightly evolved.
Not one to experiment with unconventional cuts or hair colors (the boldest she’s ever rocked was black in 2008), Ajram sticks to signature brunette in varying tones, and when she does decide to shift shades, she leans towards auburn hues. In the past decade, the singer has kept chestnut and russet in strict rotation, often styling her lengths (which always fall well-past her collar-bones) in updos, brushed-out waves, and plaits.
For her makeup, the star prefers a neutral palette, but when it comes to her lipstick, the singer and style icon (who has a penchant for coordinating her lips with her outfits) tried nearly every shade in the lipstick lexicon, favoring bold reds, berry, hot pink, and soft nudes.
Though the certified bombshell has a mellowed out approach to beauty, she no doubt knows how to switch it up from time to time, dialing up on the drama, especially during performances or appearances on MBC‘s Arab idol, where she has been serving as one of the judges since 2012. Whether she’s rocking exaggerated cat-eyes, out-to-there lashes, or matching her crimson manicure to her lips, the star never fails to turn heads.
As the pregnant 35-year-old is expecting her third child, she is only getting more confident with her glamorous aesthetic, frequently sporting tousled waves and kohl-rimmed eyes. In the gallery above, we trace some of Ajram’s most timeless hair and makeup moments.
