We love Ayesha's simple and chic beauty philosophy— this lavender-grey smoky eye is the perfect look to carry you from Spring all the way through the winter, and it only requires a few products to complete.  

Curry played up her olive eyes with a purple shadow with grey undertones. To transition your look from boardroom to happy hour, opt for a jewel-toned shadow with a little shimmer and press it into your lid blending slightly above the crease. To add drama, line your upper and lower lash line with metallic kohl and blur the color using your finger. Ditch the falsies and opt for a coat—or two—of lengthening mascara and apply your favorite nude gloss to your lips.

 Need a quick beauty look for running errands, but don't want to look overdone? Jooj up your second-day hair, throw on a beanie and read for your favorite red lipstick. We suggest using a matte red—it's perfect for summer and look like you tried with minimal effort.

Of course, as a general rule of thumb, a girl should never leave the house without her brows done. If you aren't in the mood to sit and fill in your brows for 10 minutes, you can cheat and simply groom your brows by brushing them upwards and smoothing down the sides. Touch-up your lashes with a single coat of mascara. Good to go!

Freshly waxed brows make morning makeup an easy task. If you brows are full naturally, you may not need to fill them in at all, but if you've got some sparse spots, use your favorite powder or kohl to fill in. To master the perfect summer look, copy Ayesha Curry and ditch the heavy foundation for lightweight coverage with a matte finish. No need for mascara, but if you want to make you eyes pop, try lining your peepers with a brown pencil. Complete the look with the ultimate cool girl pout—a fleshy matte pink worn as a stain. Don't forget to apply an SPF!

Got a date with bae, but you don't want to wear a full face? Lip balm and a charcoal grey shadow pot can go a long way. To keep the look fresh, use a base with a dewy finish like Marc Jacobs Beauty Genius Gel Supercharged Oil-Free Foundation ($48, at sephora.com). Blush your cheeks with a dusty rose hue for a romantic flush. Lining your eyes with black can age you, so opt for brown instead and smoke your lids with a grey shadow to keep the look light. Complete the look applying a tinted balm to your lips and highlighting your Cupid's bow for a bit of a glow.

Ayesha Curry usually sports a nude lip, but when she goes bold, it's always worth taking notes. Save the peachy-pink lips for workdays, but when you've got a date with your girls (or your man) up the ante on your beauty look with a set of lush falsies and a bold matte lip that's Insta-worthy. Keep the rest of your beauty look clean with dewy skin and groomed brows. 

Looking for the ultimate fuchsia lip color to spice up your look? We love Chosungah 22 Ink Jet Lip Tatt Lip Stain ($20, at sephora.com) and Huda Beauty Classic False Lashes ($20, at sephora.com)

Repeat after us: less is more. Ayesha Curry is naturally stunning, and we love her because she's found the perfect formula for enhancing her beauty without covering it up. Saturdays in plaid were made for balmy lips and glowing skin. Stick with your summer favorites— tinted moisturizer, a pink balm and your go-to mascara. To cut down your morning routine, repurpose your mascara and let it smudge a little on your lash line, it'll look like eyeliner. Clean up any unwanted smudging with a cotton swab and mist your face with your favorite facial essence. Snap a selfie and head out the door.

The quickest way to make nude makeup look glam is by adding a set of lengthy falsies on your top and bottom lashes (the bottom lashes make all the difference!) Warm up your cheeks with your favorite bronzer, concentrating on the perimeter of your face and just below the cheekbones. To add a little glow and some dimension to your features, highlight the high plains of the face: cheeks, brow bone Cupid's bow, forehead and chin. Set the look by misting a setting spray over your face. For a setting spray that doubles as skincare (yes, please!), try Farmacy Skin Dew Hydrating Essence Mist and Setting Spray ($44, sephora.com) —trust us: you'll thank us later!

Ayesha adds drama to her eyes with a set of voluminous falsies, kohl-lined eyes and bronzed cheeks. For an ethereal glow, she dusted the inner corners of her eyes using a powder shadow with an iridescent glow. Beauty tip: repurpose the shadow and use it as a highlighter on the bridge of your nose and Cupid's bow. Filling your brows is a no-brainer, and complete the look with your favorite taupe-nude lipstick. We love Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Sheer Candy Glossy Balm Crystal Color in Griotte Mocha ($37, at sephora.com).
