shimmery, smokey eyes for summer nights.

    by · April 17, 2013
    We’ve been seeing a lot of Elizabeth Olsen lately and we’re guessing it’s because she too was blessed with the hiring-good-makeup-artists-gene that runs in her family. But you’re in luck because we have pro makeup artist’s tips for days. Olsen’s last feature was all about summer beauty inspiration--this look is too--but her shimmery, smokey eye is more suited for summer nights. So throw your hair up in a messy bun and get started. Here’s what you’ll need to do. SHADOW IT: Clinique Super Shimmer Eyeshadow in Lucky Penny, $15 After using a concealer or an eye primer as your base, cover your entire lid with shadow slightly past the crease. You may need a second coat.
    LINE IT: Topshop Eyeliner in Pitch Black, $14 Line your tearduct on the top and bottom lash line staying away from the inner corners of your eyeliner (only 75% of your lids should be lined--it opens up the eye).
    LASH IT: CoverGirl Clump Crusher Mascara in Black/Brown, $5.59 Curl your lashes and then use three coats of your favorite lash separating mascara. If your complexion is light like Olsens, go for the black/brown shade.
    SHADOW IT (AGAIN): Clinique Super Shimmer Eyeshadow in Lucky Penny, $15 Using a small eyeshadow brush, dust more shimmer shadow along your bottom lash line to create a smoky look.
    And there you have it--a smokey eye that will last through the night without looking messy.
