Let’s talk girl crushes. We all have them. Those girls we think are just undeniably pretty, who are total goddesses, but they’re also fun, funny, smart, quirky, or any combination that makes you think, “I want to be her.” OR “I want to be her friend.” Well, actress and model Phoebe Tonkin is on my list of girl crushes.
She plays Hayley on the CW tv show The Originals (The Vampire Diaries spin-off) and she’s absolutely enchanting. She’s one of those girls that seems really laid back, totally unaware of how dang pretty she is, and not affected by her obvious fame or fandom. Phoebe is just a cool Australian girl who plays supernatural characters on tv – she’s played a mermaid, a witch, and now werewolf/vampire. She might just have my ideal life. She also has a health and wellness blog, Your Zen Life, which she started with her pal, and former costar Teresa Palmer. I may not eat quinoa every day but I’m sure we could talk astrology and vitamins and supplements or something (I worked at a vitamin store, I take b-12)… Plus, she’s a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal, ie my kind of gal.
Mostly I love that she looks flawless with or without makeup, so when she does wear makeup her lovely natural cat-eye shaped eyes are a constant source of inspiration. We might not have the same eye shape, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to replicate her looks, like this recent bronzed makeup look by makeup artist Monika Blunder featuring Phoebe and her gorgeous hazel eyes. I have to admit that her constantly sultry yet I-could-kill-you gaze is a big reason why I find her so appealing. Anyway, let her supernatural good looks inspire you.
