We’ve already got Allison Williams skin envy, style envy and job envy.

And after spotting her at the Robin Hood Foundation Gala in N.Y.C., we added hair and makeup envy to our list as well.

But while we can’t get her access to Naeem Khan and Oscar de la Renta dresses, we can copy her pitch-perfect hair and makeup look, thanks to tips from her pros.

First up, her hair, done by Benoit Moeyaert at N.Y.C.’s Marie Robinson salon. After combing Phyto mousse through her wet hair for texture, Moeyart blew her hair out with a round brush.

“While it was still warm, I rolled sections around two fingers (about an inch wide and an inch-and-a-half high) and pinned them with clips,” he tells PEOPLE. After letting her hair cool in those “pin curls,” he shook the hair out and brushed it all out, then curled it again by using a curling iron in alternating directions.

The finishing touches: “I added Phyto fiber paste, rubbed it with my finger to melt it a bit, then ran my fingers through my hair to make it more piece-y,” Moeyaert says. “It’s not beachy, but it’s not done either. In between — it’s naturally sexy.” To keep it looking great all night, he sprayed it with Elnett.

Next up, her makeup by Julie Harris, which Harris said was “glamorous,” to complement the dress. After prepping skin with Simple Skincare moisturizer and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk #5 foundation, she gave the actress a warm glow with Laura Mercier bronzer along the “high points” of the face and added Bobbi Brown coral cream blush.

But the highlight of the look for us: Williams’s stunning red lips, which matched her dress perfectly. Harris dishes that she shaded lips with Nars “Jungle Red” lip liner, then filled in the color with Chanel Rouge Allure in “Inimitable,” which is worth the $34 if it can make us look like Williams.

Tell us: What do you think of her beauty look?

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks
