One of Ratajkowski's fail-safe beauty looks is a smoky eye in warm, neutral tones. With a touch of bronzer and a natural-colored pout, the sun-kissed look works for every occasion.

When she's off the red carpet, Ratajkowski opts for minimal makeup—some sweeps of mascara, a touch of cheek color, and a neutral lip.

Ratajkowski is the queen of the smoky eye in all ranges. Here, her subtlest take involved a light brown shadow and little to no eyeliner.

On the other end of the spectrum, Ratajkowski turns up the volume, like she did here with a dramatic smoky ombré in rose and cinnamon tones.

Ratajkowski has confessed she's been working a cat eye since she was 15. Here, her go-to makeup look was amplified for the red carpet.

The model's long eyelashes did all the talking here, with the rest of her makeup look pared back with a subdued, neutral palette.

Just a streak of blue for an eye-catching cat eye made this makeup look intriguingly modern. Ratajkowski's coral lips complemented the playful pop of color.

One of our all-time favorite EmRata beauty looks to date, this smoldering turquoise cat eye paired with a nude lip was a makeup look for the ages.

For a fresh-faced look, Ratajkowski worked with just a touch of pink eye shadow, blush, and pale pink lipstick.

Most of Ratajkowski's red carpet makeup looks are bold, but her take on no-makeup makeup is just as striking.

Ratajkowski had her classic brown smoky eye down even at the start of her career.

Intentionally clumpy mascara and a pretty pink lip made for a fresh, youthful look in Ratajkowski's early days.

Ratajkowski rarely works a red lip anymore, but she once proved the bold color—paired with a medium-brown smoky eye—is always a head-turning look.

When she first hit the scene, Ratajkowski's smoky eye was more dramatic and accentuated by her nude lipstick.
