Alexa Chung Is the Queen of Effortless Beauty Looks
Alexa Chung has mastered the art of looking effortlessly polished: she's no stranger to a bold look, but she always knows when to stop and put down the makeup brush. She's not the kind of girl you'd see going crazy for contouring or experimenting with rainbow hair. Instead, she sticks to tried-and-tested looks that work for her. The hair is shoulder-skimming, softly layered, with gentle ombré highlights. Alexa told Into the Gloss that the perfect "bend" that makes her hair feel modern is the result of air-drying with it tucked behind her ears. Makeup wise, she only has one rule: lips or eyes, never both. She's no stranger to a bright red or pink lip, but eyeliner flicks are her signature, thanks in no small part to that Eyeko collaboration. Teamed with flawless foundation and brushed-up power brows, you have a look that's made her a modern-day beauty icon.
