It’s been some 24-hours for Emma Watson. Not only has she just been named the sexiest actress in the world by Empire magazine but was out on the red-carpet last night in the Big Apple for the ‘Gravity’ premiere looking every inch the stunning starlet. It’s no wonder the Harry Potter actress has just topped the recent poll, beating the likes of Mila Kunis, Cameron Diaz, Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde. Way to go, Emma!
Us beauty ladies were over the moon to see Em looking totally gorgeous last night, and we just cannot stop staring at her amazing hair and beauty look. Check out those berry-stained lips- bang on-trend for AW, we say. We’re also totally loving her loose, casual updo which really highlights her gorgeously gamine features and bold brows. Although the 23-year old British actress always makes winning fashion and beauty choices, we reckon this could just be Emma’s best beauty look… ever! Want in? We do. Read on for our top tips on how to get Em’s stunning retro-glam look….
Emma's red-carpet beauty look (@emmawatsonhq)
1. Chic Up-Do
The first thing we noticed about Emma’s red-carpet look (aside from her totally ah-mazing white vintage-esque dress) was her stunning, loose updo. Casually swept back from her face, we’ve never seen her hair looking so glossy and healthy, plus we love the height at the crown for a real hit of Hollywood glam. If your tresses aren’t quite as shiny as Em’s, arm yourself with a shine spray like Kerastase’s Styling Gloss Appeal, £15.75 for a dazzling finish with the perfect amount of hold.
2. Berry-Stained Lips
Ah, the good old berry lip. Seen on the smackers of some the coolest fashionistas over the past few weeks at the SS shows, this is one seriously hot trend that Emma works to total perfection. Why do we love it? It’s chic, 90’s throwback appeal might have something to do with it, but we also love the matte finish- super sophisticated and so easy to wear. Arm yourself with a soft lipstick like L’Oreal Paris’ Color Riche Boosting Serum Lipstick in Radiant Plum, £8.69 and gently blot the colour onto lips. This gives a much softer and more modern finish.
3. Glowing Skin
Wow, what a glow! A little birdie tells us that Em is a huge fan of organic skincare brand MV Organics- might this be the secret to her angelic complexion? We also totally love Emma’s lightly contoured finish which not only looks uber natural but complements her English rose complexion, too. Want the glow? We’re thrilled to welcome back Revlon’s Skinlights, £11.99 (this amazing product has been discontinued since 2009) which delivers a wonderfully natural glow to the skin without looking cakey or heavy and blends seamlessly into the skin. We love!
4. Bold, Brushed-Up Brows
Good on you, Em, as we are just loving your bold, brushed-up brows. Not only bang on-trend for AW but spied all over the catwalks for SS14, too, we reckon this slightly androgynous brow really complements the starlet’s killer cheekbones and almond-shaped eyes. Not naturally endowed with Emma’s best facial friends? Try Shavata’s Brow Perfector, £19.50, which guarantees a seriously impressive red-carpet worthy finish.
5. Luscious Lashes
One of our favourite things about Emma’s premiere look is the fact that she has really let her natural beauty shine through. Her luscious lashes have been strongly defined without looking too OTT. Our latest find is Bobbi Brown’s Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara, £19.00- a couple of coats will give even the sparsest lashes some serious volume. We love!
