At the New York premiere of Trainwreck, Amy Schumer was looking anything but that. 

Her 'do was yet another humidity-proof style that we're adding to our growing list of midsummer's nights hair secrets. An even cooler-girl alternative to this summer's wildy popular half-bun, Schumer capitalizes on the half-up, half down trend by giving her golden blonde hair a deep side part, then swooping/slicking the larger half to the side and pinning the other part back. So long as the pins are properly secured, it's an easy-enough hair style for when you don't want to throw in the towel it in a bun. Not to mention, it serves as a fierce complement to statement makeup, like Schumer's smoky eyes and glowy skin.

After prepping her face with moisturizer, makeup artist Andréa Tiller highlighted her face then contoured her cheeks with a soft, rosy blush. As for the eye, Tiller tapped into the baking trend using Laura Mercier's Baked Eye Color in Black Karat ($42). Thanks to its custom baked technology, it's smudge-resistant and will last all day—even if it is 100 degrees out.

I’m the associate web editor at Marie Claire. I love to while away the hours at coffee shops, hunt for vintage clothes, and bask in the rough-and-tumble beauty of NYC. I firmly believe that solitude can be a luxury if you’ve got the right soundtrack—that being the Rolling Stones, of course.
