Whenever a starlet steps out looking nothing short of flawless, we spend an unreasonable amount of time trying to dissect the look (really…it's sort of pathetic!). Of course, it's also a little silly, given that the folks who hold the secrets to these insanely gorgeous mugs live in our own backyard. That's why we tapped A-list-approved hair and makeup artists Marina Gravani and Jonathan Mason, to clue us in on their magic.
Whether it's Diane Kruger's perfect pink pout, Camilla Belle's bold brows, or Freida Pinto's dewy skin that you want, it turns out channeling these lovely ladies isn't as daunting as we had previously thought. As for their coiffs, all you need is a stash of bobby pins, a spritz of hairspray, and a few key pointers that we learned firsthand. Click through to see the R29 L.A. team morph from deadline-filled days to swanky nights in a snap! Are you ready for your close-up now?
