Oh, to exude effortless oomph like Dakota Johnson at the Sundance Film Festival 2023. The Fifty Shades Of Grey star shines brightest in her trademark look featuring that sultry lived-in makeup aesthetic and her iconic fringe hairstyle. Even though she has her go-to look set in place, the actress always manages to keep things fresh by mixing and matching various blush tones and glow-induced makeup hues to embody an alluring appeal.
On the fashion front, the Hollywood actress rocked one of 2023’s biggest trends– denim on denim, as iterated in the SS23 fashion week. Here’s a breakdown of her look because we too want to be as cool as Dakota Johnson in her candid element.
Dakota Johnson’s Glow-Induced Red Carpet Makeup
Step 1: Glass-Like Glow
Get yourself glass skin by following a glowing skincare routine. Cleanse, tone, and apply serum on your face and neck. Pat in a facial oil and massage with a Gua Sha tool for lymphatic drainage that will depuff and tone up your visage. Apply a hydrating moisturiser and then follow up with an illuminating makeup primer once the moisturiser is absorbed by the skin. Blend a serum-infused foundation on your face and neck and use a concealer on areas that need more coverage. Set with a finishing mist.
Step 2: Raising Brows
Opt for a clear brow gel to brush up your brows and style them in place. Then go in with a brown-hued eyebrow pencil to fill in any gaps.
Step 3: Easy On The Eyes
Smokey brown eyeshadow was Dakota’s choice of eye makeup for the film festival. Use a pencil brush to blend brown eyeshadow on your lash lines. Clean the brush and then use it to apply a champagne shimmer eyeshadow on the inner corners. Tightline your eyes with brown kajal and you can even use champagne/gold/white eyeliner on your lower water lines for a big doe-eyed moment. Load up on mascara.
Step 4: Such A Peach
The Persuasion actress is really radiating the most beautiful glow on her cheeks. Our bet is she used a mix of cream and gel blush for that bouncy and peachy effect. Blend a pink cream blush on your cheeks and layer it on with a coral blush tint. Dab highlighter on the high points of your face for a lit-from-within look.
Step 5: Kiss The Stars
I spy berry lip tint with a shimmer-infused luxury gloss on her lips. Prep your pout with a lip scrub and balm. Line your lips with a pink lip liner and dab on a lip tint. Once the tint is set, swipe on a shimmer-infused lip-plumping gloss.
Dakota Johnson’s Signature Hairstyle
The Cha Cha Real Smooth star is known for her bangs. If you too want a haircut like Johnson, ask your stylist to give you a fringe according to hair type and face shape. Even curly-haired girlies can get bangs, they just need to be cut dry by your hairstylist. Ask for bottleneck bangs that are easy to style and maintain. For haircare, use smoothening shampoos and conditioners in the shower and dry your hair with a microfibre towel. Apply a serum to damp lengths and detangle. Blow dry with a large barrel brush to get smooth locks like the actress with an enviable bounce.
