Laura Prepon has been killing it as Alex Vause on Orange Is the New Black. And while on the show, she basically sports a bare face and still looks incredibly fierce, girl looks stunning with makeup too. Before Prepon headed to appear on Late Night With Seth Meyers,she and makeup artist Tina Turnbow worked to create a look for Prepon inspired by "a brunette Brigitte Bardot." Turnbow told us how she gave Prepon this glamourous look, from the natural cheek down to that gorgeous red lip.
