Lana Condor’s Girl-Next-Door Beauty Looks in Netflix’s “To All the Boys”
After re-watching Netflix’s “To All the Boys'' series for the 100th time, I’ve come to realize that the sweet love story between Lara Jean (played by Lana Condor) and Peter K. (played by Noah Centineo) is not the only thing that made me – and all the LJ + PK stans out there – swoon. Lara Condor’s girl-next-door makeup look in the movie is also giving me major ideas and inspirations for the perfect Spring look. So, TO ALL THE BOYS girls listening, here are some tried-and-true essentials you’ll need to cop Lana Condor’s girl-next-door looks and impress your boy crush this Spring.

So, put away your eyeliner and eyeshadow if you’re going with falsies for a casual day look.
Apply one coat of mascara to your natural lashes before putting on your faux lashes for a more natural, seamless blend. Finish off with a bit of mascara on your lower natural lashes for the perfect wide-eyed effect.
Seriously, who can resist those rosy apple cheeks? Lara Jean’s sweet girl-next-door look isn’t complete without a dash of rosy flush, which is a major makeup inspo for the blossom season. Go for a soft shade of pink like Lara Jean to add a gorgeous flush of color to your natural complexion. Trust me, just a few swipes of blush can change your whole look and will make your skin look more youthful.

For her makeup look in this scene, her gradient eyeshadow stands out to me the most. I’m calling it a “half-smokey” eye because it isn’t quite a full-blown edgy look.
