The new movie In Time pretty much reads like our ultimate personal fantasy—a future in which everybody stops aging at twenty-five? Where do we sign up!?
At the Los Angeles premiere, Amanda Seyfried turned heads with a luxe-but low-key beauty look that perfectly complemented her colorful dress. Here’s how to make it happen for yourself.
To preserve and protect hair color (whether it’s natural or bottle-borne), don’t just use products that are gentle—use ones that are designed to pamper your specific shade. If you’re golden blonde like Amanda, use a system like Bumble and bumble Golden Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner, which keeps golden tones and buttery highlights from turning brassy or too-yellow ($23 each, bumbleandbumble.com). Brunettes, look for a system that deposits dark pigments to enrich color and prevent fading, like Aveda Clove Shampoo and Conditioner ($18-$23, Aveda.com). Redheads, try John Freida Radiant Red Color Magnifying Daily Shampoo and Conditioner ($5.19 each, Drugstore.com).
1. Coddle Your Color
When your outfit is this colorful, it’s a good idea to keep your makeup look simple. Get Amanda’s smoky eye by applying a brownish-bronze eye shadow like MAC Eye Shadow in Antiqued on the lid and across the lower lashline, then use a slightly darker shadow like Corduroy in the crease for definition. Apply a shimmery gold shadow like Retrospeck across the brow bone, and to blend. Finish off with black powder liner along the upper and lower lashline, then two coats of black mascara.

2. Play Up Eyes Using Neutral Shades
3. Fake Full Lips
Even if you don’t have naturally full, luscious lips, a plumping gloss can make it look like you do. Laura Mercier Lip Plumper in Pink Pearl will make lips feel fuller for up to two hours, and imparts a soft pink shine ($30, Sephora).
