You'll Be Blown Away By This Birthday Girl's Best Looks
Posted by Rachael Funnell in Makeup
Scarlett Johansson has blessed the silver screen ever since her first debut in North, featuring alongside Bruce Willis at the tender age of 10. Having appeared in so many big films over the years, it’s hard to believe that the Hollywood star has only just turned 31. She has performed as a wide variety of characters over the years and rocked some dramatic styles. From platinum to strawberry blonde, brunette to red, Scarlett never fails to amaze in each of her roles and her appearances on the red carpet always leave us stunned.
Alongside landing the position as ambassador for Dolce & Gabbana, Scarlett remains the only woman to have been awarded Esquire’s title as “Sexiest Woman Alive” twice. Long story short, we absolutely love Scarlett Johansson. She looks fabulous in everything, everyday, always. To celebrate our girl crush’s 31st birthday, we’ve decided to recap on some of Scarlett’s greatest looks with some Johansson-inspired beauty and makeup tips.
Widely celebrated for her curves and femininity, as this photo proves, Scarlett is no stranger to the Marilyn Monroe comparison. With her platinum 50s hair and plump, effeminate lips, it’s difficult not to see hints of the vintage pin-up star in our modern day beauty. Treat your lips to a Johansson make-over with the lip treatment she has claims feels like a million bucks, Kanebo Sensai Cellular Performance Total Lip Treatment £89.92.
Whilst famous for her platinum hair and vintage style, Scarlett is naturally brunette and like all styles she adopts, it looks utterly fabulous. Suffering from sensitive skin, Scarlett prefers to wear minimal, natural makeup when she’s not on camera or strutting her stuff down the red carpet. A product she has reported relying on for cleansing after a heavy weekend of heavy makeup is Cetaphil £16.56, a non-comedogenic product free from perfumes designed to gently unblock pores. However if you’d prefer to explore and discover which cleanser is perfectly suited to you (unfortunately for us, we have not all been blessed with Scarlett’s flawless complexion) click here to find out.
Effortlessly sultry, Scarlett Johansson has a way of making even the most subtle of makeup looks into an iconic style and is always on top of the latest beauty trends. We love the contrast of her red lips against her porcelain skin in this photo and how she completes every look with a strong black mascara. For a longwearing, lash boosting, waterproof mascara try Bad Gal by Benefit £17.50.
The smokey look perfectly compliments Scarlett’s ash blonde hair, and we love the shaping of her eyebrows. This natural look is a great style for any occasion and the warm tones suit her complexion. If, like us, you can’t wait to recreate Scarlett’s look, this eyeshadow palette by M.A.C £65 contains 15 warm and neutral colours to blend for the perfect Johansson-inspired smokey eye.
Rosey cheeks, flawless skin, it’s a face worth approximately $80 million, but maintaining it isn’t always easy. Having sensitive skin means Scarlett has to select the best skin care brands for her skin type to prevent blemishes, claiming she has a habit of turning something really small into a massive lesion. To manage her problematic skin, Scarlett has reported using Shiseido products, such as Ibuki Protective Moisturiser SPF 15 £29.95, which contains a multi action formula that works to correct visible pores, prevent breakouts and eliminate blemishes. Make sure you use a moisturiser which compliments your skin type to create a flawless base before applying makeup.
With so many great looks over the years, it’s no surprise that Scarlett is celebrated for being a style and beauty icon. At My Beauty Matches we’d like to wish her a very happy birthday and we can’t wait to see which look she rocks next. So raise your glass to the sexiest woman in Hollywood who, like a fine wine, only gets better with time.
