lancome’s new face shows us how it’s done.

Considering how often she's crowned Beauty Queen by yours truly, let's be real--it was only a matter of time before Lily Collins landed a beauty contract.

The lucky taker? Lancome, who just announced this morning that it's recruited the actress as the new face of the brand. Following in the footsteps of fellow Lancome ambassadress Emma Watson, Collins stars in the new ads for the spring collection, titled "French Ballerine." The campaign won't land until January, but find out how to get her gothy- gorgeous look from this week's Givenchy show--starring all Lancome products, obviously--below.

Copy it now, and then start shopping for Collins' awesome ear spikes later. 

FILL IT: Lancome Le Crayon Poudre- $25

Ever since her Nickelodeon days, the actress's full brows have become her beauty trademark. But even if you weren't born from the Brooke Shields/ Cara Delevingne/ Lily Collins genepool, you can fake it with this powder pencil and brush hybrid. 

COLOR IT: Lancome Sensational Effects Eye Shadow Smooth Hold in Moccacino- $19

Collins' deep brown shadow is the perfect summer-to-fall beauty transition, and it flatters pretty much every skin tone. Go for this coffee-colored shadow and layer it on for more intense color.

SWIPE IT: Lancome Rouge in Love Lipcolor in Fierry Attitude- $26

Replicate her dramatic berry pout with Lancome's wine-colored shade. We always knew dark lipstick was versatile, but the fact that it goes with so well with both ear spikes and a Bambi sweatshirt shows it really doesn't get any more wearable than this.
