Earlier this year, Ciara joined the ranks of CeleBeauties with "Blond Ambition"—Beyoncé, Keri Hilson, and Mary J., to mention a few. Amazingly enough, this bronzed beauty rocks blond hair with her signature part down the middle quite well. What's even more amazing is that Ciara's blond hair down-to-there does not in any way detract from her natural beauty.
Ciara was photographed back in June leaving The Ivy restaurant in Los Angeles without the de rigueur makeup of most CeleBeauties. Her natural glow is amazing, and makes for a perfect Simply Sexy Saturday makeup look. Though the glow-bestowing summer season is long gone, you can still look the part of a sun-kissed goddess with a tinted moisturizer, gel bronzer, luminizer, and nude lip! Ciara's next-to-nothing makeup look is easy to replicate with 4 simple steps.
