Bobbi Brown Makeup

Smoky Eyes: I’m loving my eyes smoky these days. I feel a bit 1960s nostalgic, edgy, and playful with smoky eyes. For the longest time I’ve been using black purple eye shadow or dark brown. I’m now addicted to black eye shadow. My favorite is: Bobbi Brown eye shadow in Caviar, $20 (see image below). I apply to both the upper and lower eyelids, and add a black liquid eye liner by Maybelline to wing my eyes for an extra dramatic and wow factor effect. Promise, I will update with photos very soon!:)

NARS Single Eye Shadow in Night Breed

I just discovered a gorgeous way to get smoky eyes with NARS Single Eye Shadow in Night Breed. The shade: black with silver glitter. The black pigment is pretty strong and you can skip the black eye liner on lower lids. I also use two other eye shadows: MAC Reflects Antique Gold which is part of the MAC Glitter Brilliants collection (your eyes will sparkle like diamonds) and stila kitten eye shadow for highlighting.

I then add MAC Rapidblack Penultimate Eye Liner (a liquid eye liner) and wing out my eyes for a bit of cat eyes. And finish with MAC Studio Fix Lash mascara. The result: dramatic, sexy eyes! To complete my look I add Chris & Tell lipstick by Lancôme which is THE prefect pink coral shade. I’m addicted to Chis & Tell! Every woman should have one pretty red lipstick and one pretty pink coral lipstick such as Lancome’s version.

Anna Paquin at the 2010 Golden Globes

2010 Golden Globes Beauty Trends: Another big trend of the evening was long, dramatic lashes set against smoky eyes as seen on True Blood’s Anna Paquin, actress Emily Blunt, and Glee’s Lea Michele. BTW-I love Anna’s Stella McCartney gown.

To get the look, try Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up Smooth Eye Color Quad in Champagne—the ideal palette to attain a smoky eye, along with the Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Black and Volumized Lashes Mascara in Black.

Sienna Miller Wearing CHANEL Beauté at the Tokyo premiere of G.I. Joe

Sienna Miller wearing CHANEL Beauté at the international premiere of G.I. Joe, Monday, July 27, 2009, Tokyo, Japan.

Get Sienna Miller’s Look: Sienna Miller’s makeup was done by Makeup Artist Kate Lee for CHANEL Beauté, and here is how to get the look:”For the Tokyo premiere Sienna wore a Gucci suit. Her hair was up and in a modern/ chignon type ponytail, so I decided to make the look more of a subtle version of Jerry Hall/ Helmut Newton by gently smoking out the eye with a mid grey matte shadow. Inside the eye I used CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Graphite to add intensity, and the silvery grey reflects the light. I wanted to balance the look without conflicting with her amazing suit. On the lids I used the grey shadow from the CHANEL Smoky Eyes Quad, with the CHANEL Eclat Lumiere in Beige Rosé as a base. On her lashes I used several coats of Exceptionnel de CHANEL Mascara. I sculpted the cheek bones with CHANEL Powder Blush in Fresque. Final touch… the lips were CHANEL Rouge Allure in Instinctive.”
