After countless premieres and red-carpet appearances, Emma Watson has finally found the beauty routine that works for her. Crediting her pixie cut with what she calls a more “experimental” relationship with makeup, the 21-year-old tells Stylelist, “There’s no way to hide when you have short hair. You really have to go for it.”
The secret to her trademark look, which includes flawless skin, bold brows and a pinch of glamour, is an arsenal of reliable beauty tools. “I’m a creature of habit,” she tells Style.com of $45 Giorgio Armani “Beauty Luminous” silk powder (bottom right). “I like to find what works and keep buying it.” She also brightens up with bronzer or blush, like Yves Saint Laurent’s $38 Crème de Blush (top left) because, as Watson puts it, “I am so pale and English.”
But the focal point of Watson’s look is the eye, which she prefers with a bold brow and major lashes. “I get my eyebrows threaded,” she confides. “Blink is really good,” she says of the London-based beauty bar’s line of products, which includes defining pencils (top right).
For that kewpie lash effect, the star looks to $25 “Hypnôse Doll” mascara (bottom left) by Lancôme, for which she is an ambassador. “I’m big into Twiggy so I do bottom lashes and top lashes,” she explains. “This is really cool because it is specifically designed to get that look.”
