List Rules Vote up the celebrity makeup tips you'll be stealing.

Stars always have the best of the best as far as glam squads go, but many celebs have opted out of having help and are now doing their own makeup.

Whether they crave normalcy or just trust their own hand, they are, in their own way, old pros themselves. Think about it—before they became big they had to look their best to impress countless agents, casting directors and fashion designers along the way to get where they are today. Their game is now so good that some have their own makeup lines, and the ones that don't still offer pretty solid tips as far as application and product.

You may be surprised at who is shunning their squad to have a more natural look, on and off the red carpet. Who of the celebrities below do you think has a knack for makeup application and who do you think is just "winging" it? Vote for your favorite below!

In December 2016, Mac Miller shared a photo on Instagram of the girlfriend he was missing while out on the road. 

In it, Ariana Grande is shown applying her own makeup while perched on the bathroom counter with her feet in the sink to get that oh-so-close view for precise application. 

When she's not perfecting her winged eyeliner or applying her favorite false eyelashes, she stresses the importance of skincare. Her favorite skincare product is coconut oil which she not only applies to her face but also her body and hair.

Just before the matrimony in 2011, Kate is said to have taken a few lessons from makeup artist Arabella Preston in an attempt to add a little normalcy to the day most of the world would be watching. Even as a royal, Kate likes to keep things low key.

Taylor Swift is the master of her own makeup universe. She has her own special technique to perfect her lips. She said, "I swipe on my lipstick, place a tissue between my lips, and blot. Then, if I really need the color to last, I hold the tissue against my mouth and brush translucent powder over it, which sets the color."

And in case you were wondering, she rarely goes without a statement lip.
