Comedy’s leading lady surprised us this week by chopping her long brown locks into a short, structured bob, and we’re totally into it! Kristen’s high cheekbones are definitely suited for an above-the-shoulder haircut like this one. The rich chestnut color compliments her fair skin, while the red tones throughout her hair make the warm makeup on her cheeks and lips stand out. To achieve a similar look without visiting a salon, we’ll walk you through Kristen’s beauty look.
Start with a primer and follow up with your favorite foundation (we love NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation for a matte look and Tarte Smooth Operator Natural Tinted Moisturizer for lighter coverage). Apply a neutral shade of eye shadow all over your lid and lightly swipe on some mascara—one or two coats will do, you want your blush and lip color to be the main attraction here. Next use a terra cotta blush like Sephora Collection Colorful Blush in Coral Crush to create the warm glow Kristen’s got going on. Concentrate most of the color onto the apples of your cheeks before drawing the brush up your cheekbones toward your temples. To up your glow-factor, highlight your T-zone and cheekbones with an illuminating powder. Finally, swipe a strawberry pink lipstick on to compliment the warmth in your cheeks–try Revlon Color Stay Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Sweetheart.
