Dewy skin, blushed cheeks and red lips make us swoon!

Thandie Newton looked stunning at the Serpentine Summer Party in London, England on Wednesday. The For Colored Girls actress donned a dark floral bohemian frock and completed the flower child-inspired look with waist-grazing braids, dark nails and red lips.

Ever the beauty minimalist, Newton has mastered the art of looking chic with just a few products and when it comes to summer beauty she's a pro. To mimic her style, ditch cream foundation in exchange for a gel or serum based foundation instead; do that same with your blush, switching powder for liquid or gel-based formulas to give the skin a dewy glow. To get Thandie's bedroom eyes try a charcoal pencil instead and only line the outer corners of your lower lash line; and coat your top lashes with a single coat of mascara.

If liner and mascara aren't your thing, we've broken the look down to basics—there are three staples nail the look in five minutes: a gorgeous highlighting stick, a gel-based blush and the ultimate orangey-red matte lip. If you're feeling particularly daring, coat your nails in a black hue and don your fiercest smize.
