On days when we snooze through our alarm and are forced to forgo our cat-eye and mascara, we generally look like we've just emerged from a three-week-long bender. But when Uma Thurman does it, well, she becomes a whole other beautiful creature—one that appears to possesses the answers to all of the world's untold mysteries.
Last night, at the premiere for her NBC miniseries The Slap, the 44-year-old actress substituted her signature subtly defined eye for a bare lid. A brushed-out brow, glossy red lip, and slicked-back hair balanced out the look just so. Call it the red carpet's no-makeup makeup look, the face of our dreams, or a shock to the system (as we said before, she does look like an entirely new person)—but it's something that only she, Tilda Swinton, and the Olsen twins could pull off.
