Get the Look: Amanda Seyfried’s Natural Makeup

Amanda Seyfried has to be one of our all-time favorite beauty girls. She’s mastered the barely-there makeup look, and even when she goes glam, it seems so natural. At the MTV Movie Awards, Amanda showed up in minimal makeup and a serious set of eyelashes. Rather than just envy her effortless beauty, we thought we’d show you how to recreate it. Here’s how to get Amanda’s look… [poll id="2"] Let skin shine through… Use a foundation with light coverage to even out your skin. Look for a product with light reflecting properties, like Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat or Kevyn Aucion Beauty The Sensual Skin Tinted Balm, which will create a luminous complexion. Impart a rosy glow… Cream blush is your best bet for achieving a natural, lit-from-within glow. Cream formulas melt into the skin, making blending a breeze. Try applying Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Promise or Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Rose Petal to the apples of your cheeks. Add a little tint… A slight pink color on the lips looks polished, and won’t throw off the natural face. Maybelline Baby Lips is the perfect lip-balm-lipstick-hybrid for the job. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment is another favorite when we’re in need of just a touch of color. Groom brows… No matter how natural the look, shapely eyebrows are a must. An unruly brow can steal the show (in the worst way!). Enlist the help of a brow pencil like L’Oréal Brow Stylist Custom Brow Shaping Pencil or Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and a spoolie brush, and fill them in. Play up the lashes… Everything about Amanda’s makeup is understated, except for the lashes. Of course we love natural makeup, but we can’t resist a set of long lashes. Top your look off with a few coats of your blackest black mascara (we love Lancôme L’Extreme and Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Mascara), and you’ll be a natural beauty a la Amanda Seyfried.
