Angelina Jolie knows that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Wearing her umpteenth Little Black Dress with her favorite combo of thick black eyeliner and nude lips, Angelina was yet again the object of everyone's attention by just being herself.
To get Angelina's plain Jane (ha!) look, you'll need two things: A black liquid or gel liner and a juicy, flesh-tone lip color.
Liquid and gel eyeliners may be the trickiest to use, but they create the cleanest, most graphic look. Lock yourself in the bathroom with a creamy, easy-glide liner like Smashbox Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner in Midnight Black ($22), a bunch of eye makeup remover pads, and don't come out until you've have two matching winged lines. That's how I learned. (Hint: Start from the outside in, so the thickest part of the liner is at the outer corners.)
Then balance the dramatic eye makeup with pale lips. I like Too Faced Lip of Luxury Lipstick Flamingo Pink ($18). Pay no mind to the name--it's actually a gorgeous nude-peach.
Keep the rest of your face bare (save for concealer or foundation, if you need it.)If you created this look every single day like Angelina does, in time, it would, in time, resemble hers. This is one makeup concept where patience really is a virtue.
