Nineteen-year old Perrie Edwards is one member of the X-Factor-spawned girl group Little Mix. Despite the success of Little Mix’s debut singles and the feverish excitement over the release of their first album?later this year,?the adorable singer has been getting more press lately for her?relationship with One Direction’s Zayn Malik, which is apparently fraught with infidelities, than for her music.
Perrie is?occasionally criticized for wearing excessive amounts of makeup, but she’s a performer so that criticism is crap. If she were a standard teenager walking around made-up the way she generally is, it?would be a different story, but?she’s in the early stages of her stardom, still cultivating?a public image, and probably really enjoying the dress-up. While she’s a very naturally pretty young woman, her unusual coloring makes?Perrie Edwards without makeup look a little freaky, but overall still very sweet.
Two things immediately jump out in the first photo of the singer with a bare face: Perrie’s gorgeous big blue eyes and her super-splotchy skin. Her complexion is clear, thank goodness, and she can easily smooth out the splotches and take care of the redness around her eyes with a touch of makeup. Overall, she’s clearly very naturally beautiful (though you can see where makeup will definitely help).
The softer lighting in the next photo?makes her skin look more even and beautifully glowy. She has a very magnetic smile and is very lovely. Platinum hair can really age a woman and it takes a great deal of style to pull it off. Without her heavy makeup, Perrie looks young and fresh and very very pretty. If Zayn was smart, he would take this chick and run.
