With a nomination for her role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button , Taraji has already proven her talents as an actress. I love seeing her with both simple  and risky  makeup choices, and she also shows how lovely she can be on the red carpet.
Here we see her well-defined eyes balanced out with a light lip. Her cheekbones have a light dusting of a blush that show off their shape, as does her smile. Taraji keeps her short hair smooth and straight, except for that curve of bangs across her forehead. Are you liking her choice tonight or does it feel curious?
