Florence Pugh's mind-boggling performance in didn't convince you she's one of the biggest breakout stars to watch, then her Oscar-nominated role as Amy March in Greta Gerwig's 2019 adaptation of Midsommar definitely did. Previous portrayals of the youngest March sister cast her as a selfish, melodramatic brat, but Pugh's version had us thinking, Little Women Maybe I'm actually an Amy. It also left us wanting to befriend the British star and steal her brow gel. In our best attempt at the latter, we caught up with Pugh's go-to makeup artist, fellow Londoner Naoko Scintu, who divulged her step-by-step process for creating the actress' velvety complexion and brushed-up brows. Ahead, visual evidence of Pugh as a 2020 red-carpet (and Instagram) star on the rise — plus every beauty product currently in her routine.

Bye Bye Undereye is Scintu's holy grail. "I love this concealer, and I always use it on Florence — and pretty much all my clients — because it's full coverage but wears like bare skin," she says.
