EMMA WATSON is looking particularly sophisticaed in a gray-brown smoky eye and glossy lips. Although some feel she should be wearing less, the look itself is still pretty. Begin by applying your base of choice (the cult favorite is Urban Decay’s Primer Potion) all over your lid. Apply MAC’s Silver Ring eyeshadow to the inner lid with the 239 brush, while applying MAC’s Print eyeshadow to the outer lid. With the 224, lightly tap MAC’s Knight Divine eyeshadow into the crease, blending towards the outer lid. Using the 239, gently apply MAC’s Embark eyeshadow above the crease, blending upwards, letting it fade towards the brow. Highlight the brow with the 239 brush and Shroom eyeshadow, making sure to blend with the darker shadows to ensure a soft line, rather than a harsh one. Apply MAC’s Blacktrack fluidline with the 266 brush along the upper lash line. Forego lining the lower lash line, but instead add an extra coat or two of black mascara to the lower lashes (as well as to the upper lashes).
We recommend MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid or Make Up Forever’s Mat+ Velvet liquid foundation. Using a concealer brush (194), dab on a touch of liquid foundation to cheeks, chin, forehead, and nose. Spritz a fluffy powder or buffer brush (129, 150, or 182) with a mist of water or Fix+, and then buff the foundation onto your face. Work your way outwards to ensure full coverage. Apply more dabs of foundation if you so require. Set with any loose powder if have oilier skin (or feel the need to) using a fluffy powder brush (129). Brighten up cheeks by using the 129 and picking up a small amount of Margin blush and dusting onto the apples of the cheeks. Blend outwards using the 129 brush, softly swirling it on the cheeks, and finish by buffing the color into skin with the 182.
Keep lips looking subtle and glossy by applying MAC’s Pinkarat lustreglass to lips–skip the lipstick, just pump up your natural lip color.
