Just when we were totally over the topknot, actress Rachel McAdams stepped out at the "To The Wonder" premiere this week wearing one that has us seriously thinking twice about ditching this updo. Paired with her fresh, new hair color and a bright pink lip, this look is perfect for spring.

To get the fresh-faced look, celebrity makeup artist Kayleen McAdams applied Estee Lauder Maximum Coverage Foundation to Rachel’s skin, then used Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint in Pearl and applied NARS Multiple in Puerto Vallarta on the apples of her cheeks. The shimmery beige shade from the Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad in Golden Mink was applied on the outer corner of her eyes and along the bottom lash line and lashes were coated with CK One Mascara in Show. McAdams finished the look with a bright pop of color on the lips by mixing Bite Beauty Matte Cream Lipstick in Pastille Lavender and Pastille Violet.

To create the messy-chic topknot, Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend sprayed Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo on McAdams's dry hair, then applied Dove Color Care Leave on Conditioner to amp up the shine. The secret to getting reliable hold? "I always make an X with two bobby pins when securing, and I always spray dry shampoo on them for extra security," says Townsend. "The starch in the dry shampoo sticks to the pins and gives them a matte finish and creates a little extra friction with the hair for tighter hold." He finished this adorable look with a strip of black satin for a headband, and voila! The perfect spring look for day and night.
