Emily Blunt's Beauty Matchmaker: Husband John Krasinski

Emily Blunt and Jenn Streicher

"I have a baby, so I’m lucky if I manage to slap on a bit of tinted moisturizer, but red-carpet makeup is hugely important," says Blunt. "I feel safer when Jenn is with me — we always come up with something fresh and edgy, but she makes sure I look like myself. I don’t want to look like a strange doll. Some people shade you and change the way your face is, but Jenn’s whole thing is, ‘I want you to look like you.’ "

As the actress proves, you tend to find your makeup artist in the most random of ways

Makeup artist Jenn Streicher may have met John Krasinski first, but it was his wife, actress Emily Blunt, whom she really wanted to work with.

"I was like, 'Um, by the way, if your girlfriend ever needs anybody to do her makeup, let me know," recalls Streicher of what she told the Office alum. Blunt also notes: "She said, 'I want to get my hands on that face.' She did and it's been on my face ever since."

One of this year's most memorable makeup moments for the British beauty was her back-to-back-to-back Edge of Tomorrow premiere appearances, which included a "light eye, berry lip" look in London and "a very dark, angular, dynamic eye" for the Paris screening. Though it might be hard to believe, that latter look was done in the airplane toilet, which, Blunt says with a chuckle, "was pretty cool."

As for whether or not the makeup maven still sees Blunt's husband, she says, "I don't see John very much anymore. No." Sorry, John.
