Zooey Deschanel is on the September cover of Marie Claire looking like the grungy angel fairy of our dreams. It's unclear whether we want to be her or just spend eternity staring into those enormous eyeballs. Either way, the fact that Marie Claire has released the beauty inspiration behind the shoot is currently filling our Monday with joy.
Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell says, "I think of Zooey as pretty and cute, but the fashion had a '90s grunge feel, so I thought we should edge it up." We've been on the hunt for the best way to balance out our own suddenly '90s-drenched outfits, so this couldn't have come at a better time. For a look similar to the tawny color on Deschanel's pout, we like NARS Lipstick in Cruising.
Check out the piece for tips on how to get waves like hers and exactly which grunge rebel icon inspired the look so that you, too, can go from "quirky" to "edgy." We'll just be here repeatedly flipping through the slideshow while casually posing like Deschanel, hoping our coworkers don't notice. (Marie Claire)
