While at the Pitchfork Music Festival, Sza mattified oily skin with translucent powder and lightly filled in her brows. She completed the look with balmy lips and two coats of lengthening mascara.

Sza's contoured cheeks and glowing skin always takes center stage. During fall 2014 fashion shows she lined her lower lash line with a white liner and applied a coat of mascara concentrating on the outer lashes.

For a look that is playful and casual, Sza opts for sculpted cheeks and butterfly lashes for length and volume. Want to copy her killer brows? Define the base of you brow with a brow pencil and brush brows on an upward angle with clear mascara.

Sza schools us on how to rock a casual cat eye: leave upper lashes bare and feather your lower lashes using the brush tip of your favorite lengthening mascara.

Your new go-to look for summer? Flushed cheeks and ultra fresh skin. To get Sza's glow, add a brightening concentrate to your favorite tinted moisturizer. For a natural flush, opt for a gel-based rosy blush.

Sza up's the ante with this romantic beauty look. The trick? It's all in the eyes. Incorporate natural hues into your smoke eye and line your lower lash line with a flesh-toned pencil; finish by feathering your upper and lower lashes with lengthening mascara.

Sza spices up her signature balmy lips with a hint of ombre. To get the look, sweep a subtle lip stain on your lower lip and top with a balm.
