The reviews for the latest TV adaptation of the classic Jane Austen novel weren’t exactly glowing—though the actress certainly was, in her on-screen look as the drama’s lead role Anne Elliot. Here are five products you can use to recreate her make-up
Dakota Johnson often turns to peach and nude monochromatic beauty looks for red carpet events or TV appearances, but in her latest role—as Anne Elliot in Persuasion—she is seen in a variety of subtle, rosy pink looks.
Based on the 1817 novel, Persuasion follows Anne Elliot, a woman from a well-to-do family on the brink of bankruptcy, as she rehashes a romance with an old flame.
Using the likes of shimmery eyeshadow, long lashes and a rosy-pink lip colour, Johnson’s look in the show offers a clean and modern feel, though with a touch of romance, and this is what you'll need to recreate it:
1. Dear Dahlia Paradise Dual Eyeshadow
The Paradise Dual eyeshadow palette, from Dear Dahlia’s latest Romantic Delight collection, features metallic and matte shadows in warm, peachy shades—perfect for layering.
2. Byredo Astronomical Mascara
Byredo’s Astronomical mascara offers a long lash look without the need for falsies.
3. Hourglass Voyeur Waterproof Gel Eyeliner
Apply a brown eyeliner—such as the Voyeur Waterproof Gel Eyeliner from Hourglass—in the upper waterline will to create the illusion of thicker lashes and add depth to the eye look.
4. Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion
For a hint of colour on the cheeks, the Blush Colour Infusion from Laura Mercier adds enough pigment to emulate a natural flush.
5. Rare Beauty Kind Words Lipstick
Finally, Johnson wears a rosy-pin matte lip colour that brings warmth to her face, and Rare Beauty’s Kind Words lipstick in Bold looks fits the bill.
