Dakota Johnson gives us serious beauty goals. It's not that we dislike our own appearance and want to look like her (that will get us nowhere, and self-love is the best love, people), but she encourages her fans to give less of a sh*t. In the best way. She's got the laid back cool girl thing nailed, but it's because she's not trying to nail it. Nothing about Dakota is every particularly put-together. Her hair is choppy and tousled but never styled to perfection. Recently she's been rocking her long locks again, but for a while there, we couldn't get enough of her effortless bob. She's relatable.
Make-up wise, Dakota tends to focus either on the lips or the eyes, both of which are stunning. You'll never find her wearing pink gloss, but instead, she'll choose a classic Hollywood red or a deep berry. These hues will bring out the hint of green in her eyes. Eyeshadow wise, she keeps it paired back with a natural brown to enhance the socket of her eye, but her piece de resistance is her liquid liner, which she wears with ease. What we really love about her look? That we can still see her skin. She hasn't loaded her face with product, but rather, enhanced what she's already got. Granted, we all want a little coverage, but this can be easily achieved without layer upon layer of foundation and powder and contouring. Apply your foundation with a beauty blender and embrace the freckles and the natural skin that emerges. To steal Dakota's style, step away from the heavier foundation brush.
