Beauty Onscreen: Natalie Portman

Intelligent and a versatile actress with those striking almond-shaped eyes and bone structure - Natalie Portman is my favorite actress of all time.

77th Annual Academy Awards 2005
The first movie I've ever seen of hers was Anywhere But Here on Star Movies. I think I was 13 or 14 years old at the time and I thought she was the most beautiful girl I've seen on TV. She played such a likable character in the form of the charismatic and mature teen, Ann, and she gave a moving performance that from there I wanted to watch every single movie she'd be and was in. My favorite Natalie movie would have to be V for Vendetta (Closer & Garden State are tied at second place) where she plays Evey Hammond and does a believable English accent. I never really not liked any of her films only with the exception of that tragedy of a movie called No Strings Attached. And after being on a short unofficial hiatus as a new mother, she reminds us that she'll be back on the big screen as Jane Foster in Thor 2: The Dark World on November 2013.

The classic Natalie Portman look is all about the browns, coppery and gold hues with slightly flushed cheeks and petal pink lips. Her eye shadow is almost always winged ever so slightly to accentuate that  almond eye shape and her eyebrows are feathery and never heavily drawn in. I think she's got one of the best pairs of brows in Hollywood. Now Natalie is no Emma Stone in the beauty department i.e. she doesn't experiment a lot with her makeup and hair but sticks to what she knows looks best on her. As someone who is quoted to saying, "I like to wear as little makeup as possible," she still manages to get those Dior beauty campaigns. Now here are some of her best red carpet makeup looks.

Watch out for the second part of this where I feature her memorable movie looks. For being my favorite actress, I think it's only fair that she gets to be in more than one post. ;)
