beauty queen: emma watson

because all i want is her perfect makeup.

by steff yotka

The first thing I think, without fail, every time I see a photo of Emma Watson is, "Her makeup is flawless." Every time Watson leaves her house, to go to a red carpet or to go to the grocery store, she has applied effortless and natural looking makeup. Take her makeup look from an awards ceremony in London as proof: she can do no wrong. While eyeliner that rims the entire eye paired with rosy blush and rosy lipstick might sound like a bad idea, Watson makes it work. The trick? Moderation.

I'm going to recreate her beauty look with the tips below, just to prove to myself that looking that awesome doesn't require magic. 

LINE IT: Lancome Le Crayon Kohl in Black -- $26

Create a thin line around the entire eye with the pencil and then use a little black powder to seal it in place. 

STAIN IT: Tarte Cheek Stain in True Love -- $30

Use the stain on the bottom of your cheekbones and then rub it out below for that flushed look.

COLOR IT: Lancome L'aboulou Rouge Lipstick -- $30

These Lancome lipstick shades are the bomb. One coat of this one and your pout will rival Watson's.
