In honour of birthday girl Zoë Kravitz, we’ve compiled 17 of her best ever beauty moments (no easy feat, given that every time she steps out of the house she looks immaculate).
The actress and muse is a true chameleon, unafraid to change up her hair (braids, bleached, baby bangs included) or makeup – but there’s no doubt her signature is undone natural glamour that’s tempered with sexiness.
Whether you’re chasing party season inspiration or just want to admire that perfect bone structure, scroll on for Zoë’s best ever hair and makeup moments.

Zoë rarely wears a bold colour, but when she does it’s a perfect coral lip colour as seen above.
The 2018 awards season was absolutely her year. Seen above at the 2028 Vanity Fairs Oscars After Party wearing another bold coral lip, and this time with her cropped black hair teased into a fauxhawk.
A woman that manages to make space buns look cool and effortless.
This soft braided ponytail and bronzed makeup look empitomise Zoë’s approach to beauty: low-key glamour with a hint of sex appeal.
The chicest of up-do’s and a elevated natural makeup at another vanity Fair Oscars afterparty.
Zoë is known for her elevated take on neutral tones; we love this burnt peach and invisible chocolate liner on the eyes.
The crop, the liner, the glow. Perfect.
The 2021 Met gala was one of her first public appearances with still-boyfriend Channing Tatum. A glittering naked dress, soft smoky makeup and braided French twist were the perfect compliments.
The 2022 Batman press tour played host to some of her greatest beauty moments. Zoë’s makeup was predominantly done by Nina Park, and the pair are a match made in heaven. The baby bangs, strong brow and subtle wing are all kinds of perfect.
Another subtle but glamorous Oscars afterparty look we can’t stop staring at.
The lived-in eye look is a Zoë signature.
How great is this detached wing from a red carpet appearance in 2015?
We love the undercut and soft sparkle at a Valentino Haute Couture show.
Her bleached blonde braids era.
And bleached blonde crop, as seen at the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons Met Gala in 2017.
Last but certainly not least, her makeup as Selina in The batman was the stuff of movie legend.
