Model Nicole Poturalski – also known as Brad Pitt’s rumored ex-girlfriend – continues to capture our attention with her enviably effortless look. The 27-year-old, who reportedly split with the actor a few weeks ago, possesses that very particular type of style that fills up all your Instagram saved folders – cozy, cropped knits, masculine tailoring, slip dresses.

But it’s the bronzed, bouncy-haired backdrop that really sells each outfit, courtesy of Poturalski’s Gisele-meets-Jolie aesthetic. Poturalski’s vibe is arguably low-key, with loose, undone locks and bronzed skin lending her a laid back, beachy air. She tends towards a simple look with a subtle wash of warm taupe shadow across the eyes, just a touch of mascara, groomed arches and a peachy tint to the lips.

Now the genetically-blessed German beauty has shared her 5-minute makeup routine on Instagram and we’ve analyzed every frame to find out which exact products she uses to pull together her signature looks. Watch the video for her full routine, and shop her look below.

Poturalski preps her skin for makeup as we all should, with a hydrating day cream. While she hasn’t specified which one she’s used here, we favor formulas that brighten, hydrate and smooth the skin pre-base.

Using concealer rather than foundation, Poturalski buffs the product over any areas that might need a little more coverage, including around the sides of her nose (to minimize redness) and under the eyes, out to the temples (to negate dark circles or shadows).

A little eyebrow gel goes a long way, especially Poturalski’s product of choice. The model chose Babor’s Eye Brow Filler Fibers, which tints, fills and shapes the arches in a single swipe.

Next she went in with another Babor product, the Eye Shadow pencil in what looks to be the dark brown shade (yes we zoomed in that close, you’re welcome) and smudges it over the lash line, down to the outer corners, blending with the soft tip – another time-saving hack.

Poturalski’s fresh-faced glow is probably best attributed to her clever use of liquid blush, which she dots across her cheeks and taps in with her fingers, moving a little of the product over the bridge of her nose for a natural effect. Her Babor option isn’t available here, but we’re obsessed with this Armani sheer tint.

As a final step, Poturalski dusts some fine powder down her nose, over the high points of her cheeks and across the brow bone where the shimmer catches the light. She used the Babor Face Powder Collection, which doesn’t appear to be available at the moment, so we’d suggest this Anastasia Beverly Hills powder palette instead.
