Yes, it's true: The girl formerly known as the perky blonde Aly Michalka has gone the dark side this summer--and we kind of love it. Because there's nothing like shocking everyone by looking like an older, cooler, sultrier version of yourself.

You don't have to be a brunette to pull off the look she rocked at the Blue JasmineL.A. screening--here's how to do it:

MATTE IT: Maybelline Fit Me! Shine Free Foundation - $8.99

Even out skin tone without worrying about looking greasy, thanks to the ant-shine core in this gel foundation stick.

SMOKE IT: Too Faced Smokey Eye Shadow Collection - $36

This palette has everything you need for making the ultimate smokey eye--don't forget the pale shimmer along the brow bone!

SHINE IT: Neutrogena MoistureShine Gloss in Super Sparkle - $8.99

No need to go bright with your lips--this gloss isn't too sticky and has just the right amount of nude sparkle.
