There's a reason Priyanka Chopra makes best beauty lists every time she steps on a red carpet: She goes bold and plays with color, but in a way that feels classically glamorous and consistent with her style.
A quick walk back through Chopra's best red carpet hair and makeup proves that the Quantico star isn't afraid of a little experimentation. Blue smoky eyes? She makes it look easy. Punchy pink lipstick? So flattering. And monochrome makeup? She was on the trend before the rest of us.
In honor of the star's birthday today, we decided to break down five of her go-to beauty techniques. Check 'em out in the slides ahead.

1. Summer Lips

It's rare to see Chopra on the red carpet without her signature matte lip. Rather than reach for nude or rose lipsticks, though, she gravitates toward bright summer hues and strong berries and purples.

We love a girl who believes in a power lip.

2. Monochrome Makeup

Matchy-matchy makeup might be our favorite trend to emerge in the past year. It's a great to way make your entire ensemble look polished and intentional with minimal effort. Clearly Chopra got the memo, because she's worn the trend on countless occasions. Case in point: this matching-lipstick-and-sweater combination.

Chopra usually pairs a monochrome moment with classic eye makeup (read: a little eyeliner and a coat of mascara) so that her lips and dress can take center stage.

3. Polished Hair

Textured, beachy waves have become the go-to style for Hollywood A-listers, but Chopra is rarely seen sporting them. Instead, she goes for sleek, polished hair, like this pin-straight look.

Even when the actress wears her hair up or in curls, not a strand is out of place. Looking to cop the look? Keep a shine serum on hand (we love this one) to smooth flyaways.

4. Clean Brows

The star's brows are always perfectly arched and brushed smooth, not feathered and bushy.

Keep your brows in check but tweezing any stray hairs and lightly filling in your arches to enhance the shape. We love this Brow Box from Urban Decay because it contains everything you need to clean up and enhance them.

5. Smoky Eyes

When Chopra isn't rocking a ton of color, she tends to go for a sooty smoky eye. Here's what makes hers different: Rather than bringing the color up her lid and into her crease, she concentrates it on her lashline. This halo of smokiness helps further define her eyes.

The best part about smoky eyes is that you can use pretty much any color you want as long as you have the right tools. Starting with the eyeliner of your choice, wrap the color around your eyes and blend out the pigment with a pencil brush. Then, layer some eyeshadow (Chopra tends to wear iridescent blues, browns, and gray) and blend until you achieve your desired smokiness.
