Always the bridesmaid, never the bride—that’s how it goes for funny ladies, right? Not so for Anna Faris, who is finally taking the spotlight as the star of a bawdy, lewd studio comedy. At the L.A. premiere of her latest movie, What’s Your Number?, opening nationwide September 30, Faris complemented her gorgeous Prada sheath dress with a sleek and natural beauty style. Here’s how you can mimic this center-of-attention look.
A Faux Glow: White can leave pale gals looking too washed-out, but Faris nails the perfect healthy glow. Add subtle color by applying an instant body bronzer like LORAC TANtalizer Body Bronzing Illuminator ($32 at Loraccosmetics.com) to give your skin subtle color and a bit of shimmer—no telltale orange streaks.
A Bangin’ Blowout: Anna’s blowout looks hydrated and bouncy, not brittle or weighed down. At home, work a blow-dry perfecter like Redken Velvet Gelatine Cushioning Blow-Dry Gel (about $15 at salons) into hair after shampooing, then dry with a round thermal brush. For extra glossiness, spritz on a shine-enhancer like John Frieda Full Repair Touch-up Flyaway Tamer ($8.99 at ULTA) and work through with your fingers.
A Fabulous Face: With a shiny dress and shiny hair, it’s smart to keep the makeup simple and fresh-looking. A peachy-pink matte cheek color like Tarte Cheek Stain in Blissful ($30 at Sephora) gives a natural flush. Skip the shimmer on lips, too—go with a pigmented shade in a satin finish that’s close to your natural lips. Clinique High Impact Lip Color ($14.50, Clinique.com) in Toasted Rose has just a hint of shine.
