If you were to typeВ Emily Ratajkowski's name into Google, the firstВ results to show up would surround her, ahem, giant ring and brand-new husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard. Alas, we're much more apt to search her beauty MO instead. And thanks to Vogue's brand-new video, we're getting a satisfying glimpse into Ratajkowski's go-to short and sweet makeup look-the speedy yet sultry application she resorts to for casual time with friends or even a low-key date night. A self-professed lover of all things makeup, the model shares that she routinely does her friends' makeup before parties and has been painting her mom's face since she was little, a habit she directly correlatesВ with her initial intrigue and obsession with playing makeup artist.
Not surprisingly, Ratajkowski has picked up some brilliantly unexpected makeup tips from the artists she's worked with over the years, but she also has a few surprises up her sleeves courtesy of, you know, just her talented self. Despite the love and respect sheВ has for makeup artists, Ratajkowski firmly believesВ youВ know best when it comes to what will and won't work for your face. Curious to find out the model's best-kept tips and tricks by way of her five-minute makeup look? Keep scrolling for her step-by-step process and each product, drugstore and otherwise, she uses to complete it.В
We were thrilled to find out EmRata loves this dreamy formula just as muchВ Team Byrdie does. After prepping her skin, which she says consists of cleansing and moisturizing, Ratajkowski is ready to create her base.
She applies a shade of the foundation that will match the rest of her body (because she doesn'tВ let the sun touch her face!) with her fingers for a "seamless" finish-no brush necessary.В
Next up, brows. "To me, there's nothing sadder than an eyebrow when it's smooshed down," she explains while deftly swiping this $6 clear mascara up and through her lusciously full arches. She says this is a key step within her makeup routine, and she has to do it early on so the rest of her makeup application isn't thrown off.Milk Makeup Highlighter in Lit $24Shop
For a touch of glow on the bridge of her nose, Cupid's bow, and up onto the high points of the cheekbones and eyes, the model reaches for this cult-loved highlighter stick from Milk Makeup. "I've been using it way too much," she admits.В
Blush is one of Ratajkowski's favorite products, and while deftly blending this formula from NudeStix onto the apples of her cheeks and just below her eyes, she says she actually prefers to be heavy-handed. She'll even ask makeup artists to add more ifВ it feels under-applied.
Oh, and for a super-stealthy '90s trick, as she calls it, the model adds a dot of color to the tip of her nose-an effect that mimics the look of a real-life touch of sun.ВCharlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow $51Shop
Ratajkowski says she uses justВ aВ littleВ bit of this bronzer to make her cheeks pop and blends the color up onto her temples to bring inВ her forehead. Afterward, she'll come back with concealer-applying just a little bit under her eyes-to nix any residual shadows.ВAnastasia Beverly Hills Highlighting Duo Pencil $23Shop
Ratajkowski relies on a self-created eye shadow palette to add some bronzy depth to the creases of her eyes and down andВ across her lower waterline. But to ensure dimension, she says she'll strategically swipe this highlightingВ pen from Anastasia Beverly Hills just underneath her arches to create some separation between the shadow and her brow.ВGlossier Lash Slick $16Shop
For whispy, extended lashes (she's mastered the doe-eyed look, after all), the model swears by this super-lengtheningВ mascara from Glossier. "It makes your lashes look super natural and so long," she gushes.Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick in J'Adore $30Shop
After quickly lining her pout with a nude liner (these ones from Pat McGrathВ are everything), she reaches for this nude-brown lipstick, courtesy of Marc Jacobs. "I don't use a lot," she explains while dabbing and rubbing her lips together.ВPat McGrath Labs Lust Gloss in Blitz Gold $28Shop
Last but not least is this gloss from Pat McGrath Labs that Ratajkowski dubs as amazing. "It looks like it's going to be just crazy glitter, but it's not, and it just picks up light really well," she says. "It's also just yummy and never dries out."
