If you’re looking to achieve Reese Witherspoon’s natural makeup look, you’ve come to the right place. 

On the latest episode of Take My Money, PureWow creator Kate attempted to recreate the 48-year-old actress’s glowy red carpet makeup…in under five minutes.

In the episode (see above), Kate explains that she’s recreating Witherspoon’s makeup look from the Golden Globes. She says, “Every time Witherspoon is on the red carpet, she looks very natural but glamorous at the same time.”

Kate proceeds to use a variety of Witherspoon-approved products, including Vital Skincare Complexion Drops ($68), Vital Skin Foundation Stick ($68), Face Trace Contour Stick ($48), Baby Cheeks Blush Stick ($48), Eye Want You Mascara Le Brun Clean ($45), Eye Love You Eye Pencil ($34), Eye Pods ($88) and Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm ($38).
