Dianna Agron made waves last week when she swapped her trademark blond for a spicy auburn hue, and we love the striking contrast it makes against her complexion. Her makeup artist Georgie Eisdell emphasized Agron’s natural glow by using a lightweight foundation, allowing her natural skin underneath to show through. “For Dianna’s look, I wanted her to have a chic and sophisticated vibe that was both clean and defined,” she said. To recreate the effect, reach for a sheer-coverage foundation, or mix a drop of a heavy formula with moisturizer to thin out the color. Then, dust a matte powder over your T-zone to minimize shine. To finish, sweep a tawny brown blush a shade darker than your complexion to add as subtle contour. A little goes a long way, so pick up a small amount on a soft powder brush, and build up intensity as needed. “I applied the blush lightly on the apples of her cheeks, but mostly along the cheek bone,” Eisdell added.
