Emily Blunt’s Beauty Evolution Over The Last 15 Years


There are two things we know about Emily Blunt’s beauty style: she loves a bold lip and can pull off any hairstyle, shade or cut. 

Through the years Emily has layered her English rose skin in peachy cream blushes, dewy illuminators and soft metallic eye shadows. As for her hair, it’s ever-changing. From the auburn rinset she donned in The Devil Wears Prada, to delicate caramel highlights and root-to-tip blonde, Emily has tried and nailed it all.

As a tribute to the British beauty’s dreamy red carpet looks, we’ve selected 17 of her best beauty moments from 2006 to 2021.

After wrapping her role as red-headed Emily Charlton in The Devil Wears Prada, Emily dyed her mahogany locks a purplish hue. Oh, and a special mention must go to the pinned back fringe — very ‘00s. 

Back in 2007, Emily wore a blue-tone smokey eye, a heavily flushed cheek, and a spray tan that was almost neon against her naturally pale skin.

Porcelain skin with rosy lips, blushing cheeks and black-lined eyes —  we think Emily’s taken her inspiration from her childhood doll.

There are nude lips and there are camouflage lips…

And just like that, Emily’s back with our favourite lipstick look yet. 

A look we wholeheartedly endorse: Emily going lighter with her hair. A transition from darker locks to a deeper caramel and a light spray tan left Emily glowing.  

Just when we thought Emily’s cheekbones couldn’t get any higher, they went and did it.

Her shoulder-length hair might’ve gotten the chop, but her brows began to fill out from here.

There aren’t many people who could rock a vibrant pink lip and still look as elegant as Emily. 

Supporting act? Matte pink lips, soft peachy blush and subtle highlighter. Main event? Emily’s ashy dark brows.

If anyone was wondering how to master old Hollywood glamour, this is how you do it. That, right there.

This time the neon pink has jumped from Emily’s lips to her lids for a bold pink cat eye. 

When it comes to styles we might try at home, this undone, piecey top knot might be manageable. 

With swept-back hair, a wash of gentle silver eyeshadow and a blushing matte complexion, this might be our favourite red carpet look from Emily.


One way to make blue eyes sparkle? Wear a peachy-toned eye shadow.  As for the pink lip and dress combo? Perfection.


This look was described by her makeup artist as Emily’s “little Bowie vibe”. 

To achieve this radiant, warm glow, Emily’s makeup artist @jenstreicher used the @iliabeauty Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tint in Fresco and Umber ($40, MECCA).
