Kate Bosworth is someone with the ability to show up on a red carpet — any red carpet, really — and always look expertly put together. She also sticks to a reliably simple and elegant aesthetic, particularly when it comes to hair and makeup. And at the Monday evening premiere of "SS-GB" in London, the actress proved that to once again be the case with a subdued-yet-memorable berry stained lip. 

Lisa Eldridge, the makeup artist behind the look, disclosed the details of what went into creating it in an Instagram post:

According to Eldridge, the lip shade in question comes courtesy of Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge in Berry Noir, which has a matte finish. (Eldridge is a spokesperson for the brand.) What's most striking about this look is that it's fairly matchy-matchy; the same tones found on Bosworth's lips are mimicked both on her cheeks and (ever-so-faintly) on her eyes. And thanks to Eldridge's magic touch, this monochromatic effect becomes intriguing, not over-the-top. Eldridge has explained how to get a monochromatic makeup look in one of her popular Youtube tutorials before, if you want a step-by-step look at the process.
