There is no doubt that actress Emily Blunt has some of the most enviable skin in Hollywood. The actress is known for her girl next door beauty, as seen in the photo on the left. But we had to do a double-take of the sexy siren who appeared at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art for film gala honoring Clint Eastwood over the weekend. How did she pull off this simple-to-sophisticated makeover? Let’s break it down.

Sleek hair with a grown-up cut: We certainly love her beachy waves from earlier this year, but for a Hollywood A-list gala, this dark tone with chestnut highlights perfectly accents her black gown as well as the ritzy event. Plus, it’s the ideal complement to her green eyes. Her modern, face-framing, long layers maintain some volume and bouncy shape. To achieve her supershiny and straight locks, give Bumble and bumble’s Straight Line a try.

Eye-popping color: Many starlets sport dark liner on the lower rims of their eyes, and we can definitely see how much impact that delivers with Emily. Plus, her pearly shadow and well-placed concealer let her superlong lashes really stand out.

All the right light: Her flawless complexion is her best accessory, and she hits all the right notes with a natural blush, barely there lip color, chin-rimming contours and the perfect application of highlights on her cheeks, nose, chin and forehead.
