This Is The Secret Behind Dakota Johnson’s Make-Up

Is it just us or is Dakota Johnson looking better than EVER right now?

The 25-year-old actress has been travelling around the US promoting her new film Black Mass – and making a sartorial statement wherever she goes.

But not only have her outfits been on point, her beauty styles have also been totally gorgeous

Last week, Dakota stepped out at the Toronto International Film Festival in a stunning Alexander McQueen gown. The ethereal floor-sweeper featured a cut-out front section, which gave it a really a sexy edge.

To set off the 70s-inspired piece, Dakota’s make-up artist Pati Dubroff chose to keep her face subtle and girlie.

‘I was going with a nod to the 70s and letting the color palette of the dress help to guide that,’ Pati tells PEOPLE.

‘I was doing a lot of research online, looking at late 60s and early 60s make-up and the brunettes of that era, and I started seeing pictures of Jaclyn Smith and Anjelica Huston, who both were iconic beauties from that time.’

Pati added depth to Dakota’s eyes by applying a grey eye shadow to the corners of her eye creases. She then then lined the lashline with a moss green colour to create a slightly sharper and more defined edge.

To finish off the eye, she added a light eggshell shadow and a peachy orange shimmer over Dakota’s upper lid and up to the brow bone.

‘It was just a perfect, perfect thing because you could see that wash of peach on the eye without it looking too colorful or comic,’ says Pati.

When it came to the lashes, Pati swapped falsies for layers of mascara, saying: ‘The look had a lot of mascara, which is what that early ’70s eye was all about.’

Finally, Pati gave Dakota’s complexion a flawless gloss by using a peach colour stick high on her cheekbones and the apples of her cheeks.

‘[Dakota’s] really fair, so I was calling this look “peaches and cream,”‘ she says.

‘Her skin is just so creamy, creamy, creamy, so that peaches and cream thing really worked for her. She’s just gorgeous, I feel very lucky to be doing makeup on her.’
