Olivia Wilde looked STUNNING at the Los Angeles premiere of her new film, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone! Celebrity Makeup Artist Melanie Inglessis created a smoldering, smoky eye to complement Olivia's black Gucci gown and now she's sharing her tips for recreating it at home!
1. To start I applied a primer over the lids so the shadow will adhere better and last longer. Then I created the shape of the smoky eye by tracing both top and bottom rims with a thick black line. It doesn't have to be perfect as it will be blended. The darker around the rim of the eyes, the sexier the eyes will look.
2. Next, I applied a dark cream shadow to fill the entire lid and create a base to which the powder eye shadow will stick. I also used this color on the bottom lash line to start creating the smoky eye. I applied a dark burgundy powder shadow to lid and under the eye on top of the cream to create a bit more depth. The trick to a good smoky eye is blending! Blend all of the colors with a medium and small size shadow brush according to the eye shape that you want. I like to blend a smoky eye with a strong but light shimmer eye shadow on the outside of the eye. I also used this color on the inner corner of the eyes for brightness.
3. To finish the eyes, I curled the lashes, applied one coat of mascara to top and bottom lashes, waited for it to dry and repeated a second time.I topped the look off with a really pretty baby pink on the lips and applied it with my finger, building the color for a natural and polished look.
