Winona Ryder may have gone through her awkward phases (like that whole shoplifting snafu and the time she tried to go blonde), but with this flawless makeup and vintage ‘do, the only thing she's stolen lately is the limelight.
We love the retro curls made modern with that messy I-was-just-canoodling-with-a-certain-someone vibe. A true sculpted pin curl would have seemed too forced and almost costume-like with her period dress and makeup.
As for that makeup, Winona's flawless skin is on full display. From the looks of it, the Iceman actress has stayed clear of the Botox brigade and looks all the better for it! She may have faint lines here and there, but a lifetime of sunscreen did this actress good. Her skin certainly doesn't tell the story of a 41-year-old!
Winona also obviously knows how to accentuate her eyes without overdoing it. Just a thin swipe of black eye liner on her upper and lower lash lines and a few coats of mascara and she's done. And who can look away from those four alarm lips? A cool red statement lip screams Old Hollywood Glam and completes this stunning siren look.
Get the Look: To score skin as flaw-free as Winona's, there's only one secret: Stop sitting in the sun! We wish we could give you a magical elixir but skin that perfect comes with years of sunscreen and good skincare.
Hint: Your skin will look a hell of a lot better with primer (like Jane Iredale Smooth AffairFacial Primer & Brightener which also has anti-inflammatory and brightening ingredients). We're shocked by how many women skip this step! By applying primer post-skincare and before your makeup you create a barrier between your skin and your makeup, which makes the makeup last all day without touchups. But, the biggest primer pay-off is that it fills in your pores, fine lines, and imperfections and mattifies your skin.
Now we can't all have Winona's doe-eyes, but we can copy her understated evening eye makeup. First, use a long-lasting black eye liner pencil like Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. Apply a thin line along your upper lash line and blend/smudge it into the lash line with a smudge tip or an eyeliner brush. Then, do the same for the lower lash line and apply the pencil carefully on the waterline (unless you have sensitive eyes, then your eyes will water the whole night turning you into a Taylor Momsen mess). Next, apply 2-3 coats of mascara.
To get Winona's siren pout: 1. Start by exfoliating your lips with a sugar scrub like Sara Happ ‘The Lip Scrub' or simply use some baking soda and a few drops of water. No baking soda? Just use your toothbrush. Exfoliating your lips is essential when you want to rock a bold lip color and don't want your lipstick to highlight every flake of dry skin.
2. Use a flesh-colored lip liner to trace around the lips and feather towards the center of the lip (so you don't have a defined line). 3. Use a lip brush to apply a bold cool red like Dolce & Gabbana Monica Voluptuous Lipstick in 140 Cool Red. 4. Apply a tissue over your lips and dust on a finishing powder. Yes, we're serious! Wait until you see how long your lipstick lasts!
