Dakota Johnson is giving us major hair envy, Gugu Mbatha-Raw is pretty in pink, and Natalie Portman perfects black-tie makeup. Here, the red-carpet beauty looks we loved this week.
Natalie Portman at the premiere of As We Were Dreaming: Looking for beauty inspiration for a black-tie affair? You can stop now, because Natalie's hairstyle and makeup are so on point. Black eyeliner, a glowing complexion, and pale nude lipstick work perfectly with her elaborate updo to create a playful look that's just serious enough.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw at the EE British Academy Film Awards: Pink lipstick doesn't have to be super bright, nor does it have to look sickly sweet, as this British actress so perfectly demonstrates. The soft, sheer shade she's wearing is the perfect compromise. (We love how it brightens her complexion, too — so fresh and pretty.) If you're planning a spring wedding, this shade would fit right in. Try Clinique's Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Plushest Punch.
Dakota Johnson on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon:
The 50 Shades of Grey star showed off her pretty features with clean, you-but-better makeup: Full brows, thick lashes, dusty rose blush, and the perfect shade of deep nude lipstick create a polished look that still has an air of effortlessness. And don't even get us started on that head of hair. If you'll be wearing yours down for your wedding, bring in this picture to your hairstylist. With the right amount of bounce, body, and shine, it's one that works for everything from bridal showers to post-wedding brunches.
