Emma Watson's transformation from gawky drama student to fashion's hottest darling has been nothing short of magical. What’s more, the 23-year-old starlet has been leaving a serious beauty trail the world over recently- our style crush just gets bigger and bigger every time Emma sets foot on the red carpet. Out and about on the promotional tour for new flick Noah, the brunette beauty has been working some seriously stunning hair and make-up looks over the past few weeks- we’re talking edgy, slicked-back hair-do’s, matte black nails, berry-tinted lips and some seriously impressive brows. Full beauty marks, Ms Watson! What’s more, the Brit beauty recently said, "I've just really embraced that side of my job, I guess, because you have to do these appearances and so you might as well make it fun." Here, here! Want to know Emma’s new beauty formula? Heck, we sure do…

1. Channel an edgy hair-do


Now, us beauty ladies would be the first to admit that the whole slicked back, edgy hair thing is actually pretty tricky to pull off. It might look great on the catwalk, but to nail the look does take some practice. Trust Emma to have her winning formula sorted- from side-swept styles to wet-look baby quiffs, the girl’s got it under control. We love the way these edgier styles give Em’s sweet-girl look a high-fashion edge. We want. Them. All.

2. Co-ordinate your lipstick and outfit


Once upon a time in the kingdom of beauty, colour co-ordinating, matchy-matchy beauty looks were a BIG no-no. However, a carefully chosen lipstick can actually make not only your face, but your whole ensemble totally pop- think of your lips as an added accessory. Watson’s been working this look as of late, too. Just take note of how it’s done and keep the rest of your make-up pared-down to really make the lips stand out and to avoid looking too done.

3. Take inspiration from the catwalk


Backstage at the SS14 Dior show, we saw a whole host of slick-back, baby quiff styles and gave our full marks to Emma’s take on the trend at the Berlin premiere of Noah. What’s more, we’ve got serious brow-envy of Em’s facial friends- strong arches are big beauty news this season- further proof that Emma will always, always be on-trend.

4. Adapt your hair to your dress


Any true fashionista will tell you that your red carpet frock is only as good as your hair. Well, that’s what Team Grazia Beauty say, anyway! We are in total awe of how Emma so perfectly adapts her repertoire of up-do’s to her equally impressive dress collection. Whether the dress is backless, boatneck, high neck or sleeveless, Watson’s got a style for every occasion.

5. Wearing evening make-up during the day


Think that wearing dark liner on both the top and bottom lids is more a night-time look? Think again. Only yesterday did Em step out with thickly lined lids in broad daylight. And you know what? The look totally worked. The secret lies in pairing down the rest of your make-up- stick to a subtle blush and a flirty pink lip to make the look totally wearable anytime, anywhere.
