With her effortless vibe and fresh-faced approach to beauty, Phoebe Tonkin is a walking example of the notion that "less is more." So it wasn't totally surprising to hear that this adage was the underlying theme of the actress's beauty look last night as she attended a dinner celebrating Chanel's Gabrielle bag in Los Angeles. "She's so easy to work with," says makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua, who prepped the actress's look for the event. "I just focused on enhancing her skin and lashes."

Still, a "less-is-more" look requires a certain amount of nuance—Bua relied on subtle tricks (and stellar products) to make Tonkin's barely-there look pop just enough for the cameras later in the evening. And if you're looking for some quick pointers, we'll do you one better: Below, Tonkin and Bua give us an intimate peek (complete with their own snapshots) into how the look all came together.
