One of Betty's most memorable looks had to be in season four, when she rocked this sky-high, sexy Bond Girl-esque 'do and a smoky cat eye.

2Betty's Foundation

Horochowski says she recommends using a foundation like BYTerry Light Expert Perfector ($62, birchbox.com) for a flawless complexion like Betty's. "I like to apply foundation with a brush, and then, blend with a damp Beauty Blender," she explains.

Horochowski says she used Kevyn Aucoin's Snow/Coal Duo Shadow ($42, bloomingdales.com) to create Betty's smoky eye look, but she also loves the Benefit Cosmetics Smokin Eyes Palette ($36, Birchbox.com).

4Betty's Liner

"Use Smashbox Limitless Liquid Liner Pen ($22, Birchbox.com) to create a cat eye," Horochowski says. "Start with a thin line in the inner eye and gradually bring it out, letting the liner get a little thicker towards the outer eye."

13Joan's Complexion

"To achieve this look, start by applying ByTerry Cellularose Blush Glace ($66, beauty.com) to the apples of the cheeks and blend with a Beauty Blender to create a "peaches and cream" complexion," says Horochowski.


"Then use a liquid liner, like Eyeko's, on the upper lid to create the cat eye. Fill in and accentuate the brow with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Auburn ($18, Birchbox.com). Finish off the look with a pouty lip using Laura Mercier Lipstick in Baby Lips.
