To say that we want Chrissy Teigen to be our best friend/sister/mother/all-around life partner would be a gross understatement. Who else
snoozes through the Oscars, publicly defends pizza, and hilariously documents her spray-tan woes? No one.
But while we wait for a #followback, we can at least take inspiration from her beauty look. And there's a
lot to choose from: We're talking sun-kissed waves, strobed cheeks, and sultry bronze smoky eyes — and those are just three of five trends we've noticed she always falls back on.
Need proof? Check out her best looks in the slides ahead.
1. Go For The Bronze
Rather than reaching for moody hues like gray or black, Teigen typically opts for lighter metallic shades that provide definition, while still looking soft.

And the look couldn't be easier to recreate. Simply grab your go-to copper or bronze eyeshadow (we love
Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Bad To The Bronze) and sweep it onto your lid and along your lower lashline. Photo: VG/SilverHub/REX/Shutterstock. More
2. Golden Goddess
In keeping with her bronzed-and-beachy aesthetic, Teigen almost always has sun-kissed or ombré highlights.
Unless you're a wiz with at-home hair dye (if so, teach us your secrets!), you won't be able to DIY this look. Instead,
hit up your go-to salon and ask for golden highlights throughout your hair, with a special focus on the pieces around your face. Photo: Broadimage/REX/Shutterstock. More Story Continues
3. Glow City
Sure, Teigen's already blessed with gorgeous cheekbones, but we know she loves a good highlighter to take them to the next level. Whether she's rocking a fresh face of makeup or an edgy smoky eye, you can always count on the star to get her glow on.

4. Divide & Contour
Teigen doesn't just stop at highlighter when it comes to sculpting her face though; she's always got a bit of bronzer or contour powder going on, too.

Finding an A+ product that can double as a bronzer and contouring powder is essential.

5. Slick Chick
Teigen's most popular hairstyles may be her loose waves and Hollywood curls, but the star is partial to the slicked-back look, too. In fact, it's become somewhat of a red carpet go-to for her.

Thankfully, recreating this look doesn't take much effort. All you need is a great flexible gel like
this one from R+Co. Simply warm the product up in your hands and smooth it over your roots before pulling your hair into a low pony. Photo: REX/Shutterstock. More
