Sometimes the smartest actresses are the ones who play dumb. Exhibit A: Amanda Seyfried. This gorgeous actress (she's August's Allure's Face) first popped up on our radar in Mean Girls as a ditz who learned how to predict the weather...with her breasts. Since then, she's caught our eye on Big Love and in her starring role in Mamma Mia!
At the New York City premiere last night, it's clear that this is her moment. She turned out looking absolutely gorgeous. Not edgy, not fashion-y, just gorgeous.
Her makeup was pretty, yet basic: Soft liner, a little shimmer, and mascara; peach blush; and rosy gloss. But most awe-inspiring? That hair. Long, flowing, and curled at the ends, with one section twisted and pinned back. Very Sleeping Beauty meets Dancing Queen.
Start by spritzing clean, damp hair with a light treatment like Matrix Biolage Thermoactive Setting Spray (to protect hair from heat damage). Part your hair down the middle, and blow it straight. Curl the ends with a large-barrel curling iron, and tousle. Then twist a one-inch section on one side of your part back, secure with bobby pins, and mist with a flexible hold hairspray like Joico JoiShape Medium Hold Shaping & Finishing Spray. The result? Hello, gorgeous.
