Former X-Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has faced rumours about her appearance head on, telling the media that speculation about cosmetic surgery is not true; the 25-year-old apparently relies on make-up to improve her complexion and disguise the signs of aging.
Tulisa’s appearance has been questioned recently after she was pictured arriving for court with a noticeably different complexion and swollen areas around her mouth. She has denied going under the knife in the past but it has been hard for her to argue that her face has not changed dramatically since her N-Dubz days.
According to Neil Sean, of the Metro, Tulisa has denied that any cosmetic work has taken place and instead claims that her look is ‘all down to clever make-up.’
Celebrity make-up artist Mikey Phillips spoke to MailOnline and backed up Tulisa’s claims, saying; ‘How you contour your face can totally have a dramatic change to your face. Concealer can be used to lift and brighten and bronzer to shape and define.’ Referring to her plumper lips, Mikey added ‘Lip liner and lip plumping products could be responsible for the plumper pout but remember make-up is all smoke and mirrors.’
