The beauty icon: Salma Hayek

Her signature look: Bronzed bombshell. She often accents her radiant olive skin with defined brows and eyes made up with neutral shadows and lots of lash. Nude or berry hues are her go-to choices for lip colors. She typically wears her hair down in a full regal mane that perfectly frames her petite features and angular bone structure.

Her style legacy: Let natural beauty shine through. Even when she is made up, no one looks at her and thinks, “Wow, what beautiful makeup!” People look at her and think, “Wow, what a beautiful woman!” She wears the makeup; it does not wear her.

Her “it” moment: Desperado. The actress’ 1995 role first introduced the Mexican beauty and made the world fall in love with her. In a memorable nude love scene with co-star Antonio Banderas, her wild and wavy hair and intense eyes mesmerized.

Her beauty booty: 

Straight from her lips: “People often say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.”
