Dakota Johnson Makes a Case for Matchy-Matchy Makeup
Dakota Johnson is our favourite kind of beauty chameleon—she wears low-key and casual just as well as she does a glammed-up look. But as much as we love her off-duty style, it’s always a thrill to see the actress on the red carpet. Stunning outfits aside, it’s her beauty look we’re eager to appreciate (not least because her epic glam squad Pati Dubroff and Mark Townsend are usually involved). This year’s LACMA 2015 Art+Film Gala was no exception, with Johnson sporting matchy-matchy makeup that somehow felt both fresh and timeless.
Pairing Johnson’s conservative Gucci gown with a coordinating lip could have come off too buttoned up (and dated), but Dubroff kept things modern by opting for a deep berry shade. Townsend’s flirty pony was the perfect complement, adding polish and a youthful element.
There’s still no word on which exact lipstick Dubroff used to create Johnson’s blackberry pout, but we love Chanel’s Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in Etienne ($52) and Bobbi Brown’s Luxe Lip Color in Brocade ($52) for a similar look.
