If you're in search of a new style star/girl crush/beauty icon, look no further than the Venice International Film Festival. As expected, the annual event is chock-full of inspiration from our favorites like Dakota Fanning and Mia Wasikowska. But now we've found another Hollywood ingenue to put on your radar: Sophie Kennedy Clark. 

With four films slated for the next year, including Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniacand the Edgar Allen Poe adaptation Eliza Graves, the Scottish actress is on the fast track to becoming Hollywood's next big thing. Judging from her appearance at the premiere of Philomenia, this girl is ready. While we're waiting patiently to see her onscreen, see how to copy her glowing, gorgeous beauty look below. Those cheekbones! 

FLICK IT: NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker, $9.90

A quick swipe of black liquid liner is all you need to add a bit of definition and make your eyes pop. 

HIGHLIGHT IT: Benefit Watt's Up! Highlighter, $30.00

Use the creamy stick in an upward motion on your cheekbones and browbones, and then blend in with the attached sponge. 

ROUGE IT: LANCÔME Rouge In Love Lipcolor, $26.00

The easiest way to say "Look out, Hollywood...I'm coming for you" is with a classic red carpet staple: bold, dramatic lips. This particular shade isn't too red nor too pink, meaning it's still youthful without becoming overbearing.
