Danai Gurira's Flawless Natural Style

Danai Gurira simply is The Walking Dead's zombie-slicing, kickass-girl-with-a-soft-side. But before she ever wielded a katana, Gurira made her big debut as one half of an ill-fated illegal immigrant couple in the quiet 2007 drama The Visitor. The constant? Her sexy short cut. Here we dissect how she keeps her look lively, despite having an unchanged (albeit awesome) 'do. Hint: it involves leather, lashes, and a wicked cinnamon lip.

Silver eyeshadow is risky on darker skin tones—there's a chance it can look garish. But Danai pulls it off brilliantly here. It's subtle and ethereal, not harsh.
