Currently on the pages of Vogue and on a break from her studies at Browns University, Harry Potter star Emma Watson, is famed for her classic sense of style.

To steal Emma's youthful glow apply YSL's Flash Radiance Skincare Brush over skin with fingers before gently buffing Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation onto the face with a brush. Despite burning the candle at both ends, Emma's base is clean and clear.

Inject some light with a good radiance pen which hides a multitude of sins and MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer will do the rest. Once the base is bright, a sweep of loose powder like Rimmel's Silky Face Powder will add the sheen before some final glow is added to cheeks with the palest of pink blush.

The base is elegant and simple and Emma doesn't overdo it on the eyes. Urban decays Primer potion, gently worked across the lids towards the brow bone, will give a similar base and smooth away any excess oil. For shadow, layer sparkling silver across sockets and into the crease of the eye before working soft grey shades into the crease and towards the brow bone. To frame and finish eyes, work a black eyeliner pencil to upper and lower lids and get sharp lashes with a couple of coats of Lancome's L'Extreme lengthening mascara.



Emma's petal pink pout has become her signature look on the red carpet and she is almost never seen without it. Begin by lining lips with a soft, neutral lip pencil before taking a softly softly approach with Estee Lauder's Pure Colour Lipstick in Pinkberry. Like everything she does, it works perfectly and balances the intensity of her strong features.



Having gone from girl to woman in the spotlight it's surprising that Emma Watson has never been tempted to vamp up her look. Perhaps it's proof that she's happy in her own skin and the only drama we've seen from Emma is in the hair department. For those of us who are brave enough to roll back the years it is surprising just how adaptable Emma's trademark pixie crop can be. Style with a side part, add a touch of serum for body and head for the nearest red carpet - we love Emma's look!
