We dared ourselves to recreate celebrity hairstyles and makeup looks that normally cost hundreds of dollars using only drugstore beauty products. Did we succeed?

Her thoughts: Gwyneth Paltrow and I have a similar complexion and haircut, so I thought that I could pull off this look pretty easily and that the poppy pink lip color would, well, pop amid my pale skin. What else makes it appealing to me is that the makeup is low-maintenance (which I'm a BIG fan of), yet striking.
For this look, my hair pretty much did itself (since it's already straight) and doing the makeup was super easy. The key items are pink lipstick and bronzer, so I just did my normal powder-and-mascara dance and then highlighted my lips and cheeks.
I think that this look can easily transition from day-to-night. It's not too dramatic for the daytime, and the punchy lip color could easily carry you into after-work cocktails smoothly without looking like you're trying too hard.
