Dakota Johnson’s love for berry-toned lipstick is longstanding, but this shade is next-level. The rich color plays well off her fairylike topknot and minimal eyeshadow. Makeup artist Georgie Eisdell shared she used Dior’s Backstage Universal Palette in Matte Berry, but it's since been discontinued.Frazer Harrison/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
“Conventional” cosmetic wisdom dictates a simpler eye to purportedly balance a stronger lip, but Dakota Johnson’s 2015 Oscars look proves that rules were made to be broken.

Going all-in on the matchy-matchy makeup trend, Dakota Johnson’s coordinated plum lipstick and eyeshadow were their own accessories at the 2019 Governor’s Awards. The smoky, sultry eye makeup never competes with the equally-striking lips, which is actually that same discontinued Dior shade.Steve Granitz/WireImage/Getty Images
For the opening night of Sundance 2023, Dakota Johnson opted for a more low-key makeup moment that combined a soft, petal-pink lip color with eye-opening mascara, eyeshadow, and what looks like eyeliner on her waterline. The effect is fresh, wide-eyed, and more than a little angelic.Michael Loccisano/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Though she largely sticks to more traditional earth tones and classic reds, Dakota Johnson isn’t afraid to get a little freewheeling. Her hot pink winged eyeshadow at the 2019 Met Gala was expertly anchored by a softer, glossier shade of rose lipstick just below.Nancy Rivera/Bauer-Griffin/GC Images/Getty Images
Even rarer than glimpsing Dakota Johnson without bangs? Catching her with a totally nude lip — but when she wears it, she wears it. For 2018’s LACMA Gala, Johnson edged it up with a split-bangs ponytail, retro winged liner, and a natural-nude lipstick delivering just enough contrast.Gregg DeGuire/WireImage/Getty Images
It’s not just lipstick color that makes a difference — finish is worth considering, too. Dakota Johnson’s worn a raspberry lip more than a few times, but the glossy, reflective finish of this 2021 look sets it apart.

Leaning into a ‘70s-inspired look with her pattern Gucci suit set and mesh bra, Dakota Johnson’s light brown lipstick at SXSW 2022 perfectly nailed the aesthetic.

Consider this look from the 2022 Oscars as Dakota Johnson’s signature makeup: shimmery eyeshadow for an edgy-fairytale aesthetic, with matching lipstick bright enough to illuminate without being a full-on statement lip. Eisdell used a Pat McGrath Labs lip liner in Buff and gloss in Peach Perversion.Karwai Tang/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Combining so many of her best makeup motifs, Dakota Johnson’s 2022 Met Gala look featured a vintage-vibe cool-toned matte lip and ultra-sultry, ultra-dark eye makeup. Eisdell brought it to life with the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership IV Decadence Palette and a blend of lip balm and sold-out lipsticks.Taylor Hill/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
