Evan Rachel Wood Proves Less Is More

Evan Rachel Wood Proves Less Is More featured image

Actress Evan Rachel Wood is one classy Hollywood lady, and we couldn’t help but make a comparison between two of her most recent looks sported just seven days apart. We don’t know about you, but we find that for this beauty, less is definitely more.

With her 1920s-inspired black and gold dress, Evan’s flapper hair was certainly cute (if a bit too literal to the period), but her dramatic smoky eye lacks contrast and camouflages her stunning green-blue eyes. The darker matte lipstick competes with her eye makeup, and we’re just not really sure what to focus on.

A few days later, she nailed a modern, glamorous-yet-simple look that highlights not only her beautiful eyes, but her completely flawless skin.

Want to get the look? Start with a primer like Murad Hybrids Skin Perfect Primer Acne and Shine Control ($35) over your face to smooth away imperfections.

Follow with foundation and a finishing powder like Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Set Finishing Powder ($28).

Add a warm blush to the apples of your cheeks and add some highlights to the bridge of your nose, tops of cheeks, below eyebrows and on the cupid’s bow on your upper lip. Keep eye shadow light and go for an ultra-glossy mascara.

Top it all off with a lipgloss that’s just a shade darker than your natural lip color. Larenim Mineral Make Up’s Diamond Girl Glossy Lip Colour ($17) comes in five great, natural shades.

And let’s not forget Evan’s hair. The slicked-back look is super hot right now. Follow these tips to pull it off.
