How to Copy Kate Mara’s Shimmery Brown Smoky Eye

April 17, 2014 at 8:00 am , by

The always-lovely Kate Mara was looking fierce at the Transcendance movie premiere in Los Angeles late last week. Her ombre-dipped hair was pulled back into a soft, slightly undone updo showing off her gorgeous smoky eye makeup. We’ll show you how to get her look using Bobbi Brown’s Smokey Warm Eye Palette.

Begin by smoothing on your favorite primer and foundation and swipe a coral blush from the apples of your cheeks up toward your temples — try CORALista by Benefit Cosmetics. Begin by swiping a deep chocolate liner across your lash line. Next, dust your entire lid with the Ivory base, and then swipe the medium-brown matte shadow (third square in from the left) from the inner corner of your lid upward and outward towards your brow bone, creating a muted cat-eye effect. Next dip your brush into the deepest, shimmery chocolate brown shade (second in from the right) and press the shadow between your lash line and your crease. Re-swipe the inner third of your lid with the medium-brown shadow and blend it toward the darker color. Re-line your eyes for added definition, adding some of the deep chocolate liner to the outer corner of your bottom lid and along the inside in your waterline. Swipe a q-tip along your bottom lash line to get a more smudgey feel. Finish the look by dusting the shimmery rose-gold shadow (third in from the right) along your tear duct in a slight “V” shape. Swipe on a few coats of brown mascara, top and bottom, and a shimmery salmon lipstick (we recommend Ulta Lip Butter in Vienna), and you’re good to go!

How to Get Amy Adams’ Sleek, Classic Bun Hairstyle

December 19, 2013 at 8:00 am , by

Amy Adams was the very image of elegant and demure at the December 12th premiere of “Her” in Los Angeles. Amy’s low, loose bun is a classic style we’d wear to a work function or a special night out. She completed her look with pitch-perfect, subdued makeup. We especially love the smoky gray glitter under her lower lash line (try BareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow in “Gleaming Pewter”) and her petal pink lip color (try Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in “Turn On”).

Rose McIver’s Got That Glow

December 5, 2013 at 8:00 am , by

At the Hollywood premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on Monday, New Zealand-born actress, Rose McIver, looked luminous. The 25-year-old currently stars as Tinkerbell in the ABC series Once Upon a Time. Much like her character, Rose looked ethereal and other-wordly with fresh, dewy skin, highlighted cheekbones, and a gradual smoky cat eye.

To achieve her look, prep skin with primer and medium-coverage foundation. The, use a creme blush on the apples of your cheeks–we love Stila’s convertible color. Next sweep a highlighting powder over the tops of your cheekbones, in the inner corners of your eye, and on your cupid’s bow. For lips, use a pinky-nude shade and slick on a light coating of gloss. To learn how to get Rose’s smoky eye look, check out his easy, step-by-step video tutorial.
