We were thrilled to hear about Carey Mulligan's Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in An Education. The honor confirms what we knew all along: The girl's got talent. But we fell in love with her first and foremost because of her amazing look. On- and off-screen, Carey wears a clean, natural look that focuses on the basics: A dusty rose lipstick, lightly blushed cheeks, and strong, clean eyebrows. Her bare-bones approach to beauty complements the retro-chic look she's known for to create an effect that is at once fresh and classic. Top it all off with an adorable pixie cut and we've got ourselves a modern-day Audrey Hepburn. Bravo Carey! Here are our suggestions for achieving Carey's easy look at home.
