Alicia Vikander is an Oscar-winner, Louis Vuitton style pin-up and ultimate in natural beauty, and she’s definitely having a well deserved ‘moment’. Here are her best beauty moments.
With a flawless complexion and glossy brown waves, she’s become our go-to for natural beauty looks.
The Swedish beauty regularly keeps it simple and fresh on the red carpet, often shunning the high-glam staples like statement lips and smoky eyes, she keeps it simple and it works. Every single time.
It’s been a while since we’ve been enamoured with a Hollywood beauty look, but Vikander makes it easy to love her cool-girl style because it’s so different from what’s expected from the glamorous Hollywood elite.
The best part of Alicia’s beauty looks? They’re perfectly attainable. From her brows that aren’t perfectly groomed, dewy skin that’s lit from within and her glossy locks with the second-day texture.
She’s our new go-to for beauty inspiration, and after looking through her best beauty moments below, we think she’ll be yours too.
Alicia Vikander’s best beauty moments
Most recently on the red carpet for the Jason Bourne London premiere, Alicia switched things up with her beauty look. She offset a messy sectioned ponytail with a slick of silver eyeshadow on her lower lash line.
Charlotte Tilbury created her beauty look for the 2016 Golden Globe Awards, her skin was flowing, and her twisted hairstyle, which was pinned into an easy bun at the nape of the neck, was perfect to show off the back detail of her white gown.
Graphic liner was the perfect way to make her simple black gown standout at the 2013 British Academy Film Awards. Keeping within her signature look, she kept the rest of her look fuss-free with lightly coated lashes and rose-bitten lips.
Playing up the prettiness of her pink dress at a 2016 event in Palm Springs, Alicia adds pink stained lips and a pink blush to her look. A small eyeliner flick and matte eyeshadow stop it from being too twee.
Adding to the Sixties vibe of her dress, Alicia plays that up with a small flick of eyeliner and a hint of colour on her lips. We're envious of those super glossy curls.
You’re up for an Oscar; it’s the time to go all out with the glamour, right? Not for Alicia. When she nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Danish Girl (which she subsequently won), she stayed true to her beauty roots. She chose to wear beauty enhancing natural toned of makeup, with messy-looking pulled pack locks. Simple and fresh.
We love this hairstyle switch-up from the actress. Long gone are her undone locks, at The Man from U.N.C.L.E premiere she chose a long sleek ponytail and gorgeous glowing makeup.
At the 2016 Met Gala all eyes were on her sculptural Louis Vuitton dress, so as usual, her makeup was simple, with gorgeous, glowing skin we can only hope to one day achieve.
Holding on tightly to her Oscar, she let her locks down for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and showed us how to perfectly execute the undone hair look.
Wearing a full-length sequinned Louis Vuitton gown to the 2016 SAG Awards scored the actress plenty of attention. Thankfully her beauty didn’t compete with the head-turning gown. Straight hair tucked behind the ears and golden eyes complimented the look beautifully.
Vikander posed in a Mary Katrantzou design at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards, which was enhanced with a radiant fresh face of makeup and textured updo. Her makeup artist for the look, Rachel Goodwin, told InStyle how she created the camera-ready look. She added shimmer to her eyes with the Chanel Illusion d'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in New Moon, but kept the bottom of her eyes free from mascara, adding just a tiny bit of RMS Beauty Living Luminizer on the inner corners. The hint of sparkle was added to mirror the whimsical embellishments on her gown.
When it comes to her brows, Rachel uses her fool-proof eyebrow technique. Go one shade lighter when applying brow products, as this offers softness. She also says it’s important not to get the powder on the actual hair, but the skin behind the hair, as this creates the most natural effect.
Instead of creating dramatic, chameleon looks, for Alicia it’s all about enhancing her natural beauty. A feat we imagine can be quite easy.
Alicia has always preferred to rock the 'no makeup' makeup look - just look at her gorgeously simple eyes and lips back in 2012 at the Anna Karenina premiere.
There's not much you need to do in terms of beauty when you're wearing Elie Saab Couture, and Alicia showed this off perfectly when she attended the 2013 Academy Awards.
This slicked-back hairstyle she wore to the 2015 Cannes Film Festival is without a doubt one of our favourites from the Swedish beauty; simple and elegant.
Stained lips are definitely a favourite beauty look for Alicia, most likely because there's little upkeep when it comes to them. This berry-hued lip colour is the perfect shade to complement her floral dress.
While most would play up the edginess of a leather gown, Alicia kept the beauty look soft and simple with minimal eye makeup and glossy curls all thrown over the one shoulder.
Another super pretty look from the actress, this time she keeps her whole beauty look simple, with nude lips, a simple updo and no earrings, choosing to focus on a soft brown smokey eye.
Rosy makeup is definitely a favourite of the actresses, and she looked gorgeous at the premiere for The Danish Girl with this soft style.
Managing to remain stylish and contemporary from premiere to premiere without putting a foot wrong is nigh on impossible, but Vikander makes it look easy.
Another beauty look we can't find fault with, those rose lips would be perfect for the day or night.
