Leave it to Carey Mulligan to prove that we never have an excuse to skip our makeup. The actress showed up to the Inside Llewyn Davis gala donning a simple yet flawless makeup look that put us all to shame. Her picture-perfect skin was complemented with brushed-up brows and just a touch of pink shadow. A thin, black line lined her upper lid, which was framed with her spindly black lashes. But the centerpiece of Carey's look was her bright red lips, which tied the entire look together for a Parisian-chic vibe.
Re-creating this look at home takes no time at all and utilizes products you already have tucked in your makeup bag. When in doubt just stick to the classics. And to shave even more time off your look, skip the liner, and just shimmy your mascara up from the base of your lashes to a tightlined illusion. The look can transition flawlessly from the office to cocktails to weekend brush. So, the next time you're thinking about skipping your morning makeup, just think: what would Carey do?
