Dakota Johnson went au naturel for her role as Anastasia Steele in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ which was filming in Vancouver on Jan. 16. Looks like Anastasia doesn’t need makeup to look good! What do you think of Dakota’s innocent looking bare-face?
Dakota Johnson, 24, appeared very natural while filming Fifty Shades of Grey on Thursday, Jan. 16 in Vancouver, Canada. She looked beautiful in her blue dress, with brown bangs, and a bare-face. She is a great Anastasia because the character is suppose to not try too hard on her appearance — and naturally look amazing! In this scene, Jamie Dornan aka “Christian Gray” surprises Anastasia with a red Audi to replace her unsafe old VW bug named “Wanda.” Do you think Dakota’s makeup free face is perfect for her role as Anastasia?
Dakota Johnson Without Makeup — Playing Anastasia Steele
Prior to the car scene, Dakota was still makeup-free. She was drenched on the rainy set in a white blouse, skinny dark jeans and ballet flats — and no black eye makeup streaks! By not putting makeup on her, Dakota’s face looks even more delicate and gentle — perfect for her vulnerable persona.
On a book Wiki page, the blue-eyed beauty’s character is defined as: “She does not wear much makeup, if any at all, usually wears jeans and only owns one skirt at the start of the series,” and “she tends to be highly insecure about her appearance and does not realize her natural beauty.”
Do you think that Dakota does a good job at conveying that role? We know her character doesn’t wear much makeup — but what do you think of Dakota ditching it?
She must be in and out of the makeup chair quickly on set, since it does not seem that she requires much hair styling or makeup! Not only has Dakota dropped the makeup, but she also has a naturally tousled wave look. Since Dakota’s character describes herself as: “a pale, brown-haired young woman with blue eyes too big for her face,” — mission accomplished!
