When we saw photos of Cobie Smulders from this weekend at the PaleyFest "How I Met Your Mother" Series farewell, our first thought was, "Wow, her makeup looks good," and our second thought was, "She should be wearing little black glasses."
The How I Met Your Mother star's side-parted updo shed all risk of being matronly by adding volume at the crown and twisted braids on the side. But what really got us wanting to check out a book was the beautiful brunette's chic makeup.
Ladies, if you have blue eyes like Cobie, take note: shimmering bronze eye shadow made her blue eyes sparkle. We also loved Ms. Smulders' creamy orangey coral lip – an "it" color for spring and ultra-flattering against the actress's fair skin and dark hair.
Get the Look: To get Cobie's sexy librarian in the front and Game of Thrones twists and braids in the back updo, start by applying a volume-building, heat-protecting spray like John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray. Then, blow out hair with a large-barrel round brush.
