Whether she has hair styled in a slicked back bun with pale pink lips, or she’s rocking a fedora and just-got-out-of-bed hair, Jessica Alba always manages to look gorgeous. Favoring glowy skin, penciled-in brows and sexy hair, she manages to incorporate trends (hello neon pink lipstick and icy blue eyshadow) while still retaining her own personal style. One of the things that we love most about Alba is that, when it comes to beauty, she certainly walks the line. Here’s a list inspired by Alba’s top beauty tricks:
Coral is Champion
With naturally olive skin and a penchant for a luminous tinted moisturizer and a hint of bronzer, Alba knows that her face, skin and body are most flattered in coral colors. She’s been known to rock a mermaid dress or skinny jeans with a blazer wearing this feminine, yet powerful, shade. Coral can be flattering on most skin types, especially brunette beauties.
Color Outside the Lines
Even if her hair is styled in classic waves or a basic bun, Alba knows that her signature pop of color is often relegated to her lips. She’ll try almost any shade—from tangerine to dark burgundy to sparkly nude. She favors eyeliner and whimsical lipsticks with ever changing nail polish colors. She’ll dare to rock a purple polish with nude lips or a sequined gold dress with rosy lipstick and light green polish.
Flashy lip colors or cool carefree hair-dos may be Alba’s go-to, but rarely does she rely on jewelry to amp up her appearance. On occasion, Alba will don chunky earrings or a cool collar necklace, but her mainstays are colorful lips and bouncy hair. Alba also never shies away from color in her wardrobe to take the place of piles of jewelry and she also loves cute “removable” accessories like a quilted chain link bag or art deco envelope clutch. She’s also inclined to covet skinny belts and bold footwear.
Let Nature Take It’s Course
The founder of a natural baby care line, Alba relies on organic and holistic beauty products to keep her skin in top-notch condition. She favors lines like Suki, Dr. Hauschka and Weleda. When she’s not working on beauty, bath or cleaning solutions for her company, The Honest Company, she’s using Lush’s beauty masks to purify her pores or she’s coating her tresses in KeSARI Indian Oil Hair Serum.
Change It Up
From bangs to a bob to long ombre waves and braided updos, Alba is never afraid to experiment with new styles. While she favors glossy brown locks, dewy skin and peachy lips, she tries many different makeup looks and often plays with her clothing choices as well. Alba’s mainstays are a good bronzer for sculpted cheekbones, a shiny hair mist and cocoa and champagne eye shadow. And she never goes without her lash curler, natch.
