How to Get Sarah Paulson’s Subtle, Beachy Waves

Sarah Paulson’s beachy bob with subtle ombre stole the stage (er, red carpet) at the 2014 PaleyFest last weekend. The American Horror Story star recently ditched the bleach blond look that kept our eyes peeled all season during Coven (if you were watching through your fingers, we don’t blame you) and opted for the warm brunette shade you see here.

We’re obsessed with Sarah’s hair color, which seamlessly transitions from a deep mahogany to luscious caramel, while the face-framing waves soften her strong jawline and high cheekbones. She kept her makeup sweet and simple, opting for barely-there mascara and a bold, shiny watermelon lip. For a similar lip color, try Tarte Power Pigment lip tint in Sheer Watermelon. The subtle stain is great for layering, so you can decide how bold you want your color to be, and the hydrating formula leaves your lips feeling natural, not heavy with product.
