Michelle's Oscar Night Look and My Inspired Version.
Close-up of Michelle's eyes. More subtle use of silvery grey eyeliner.
My inspired look, a little more dramatic.
We all can't have Chanel haute couture, so we gotta bling another way.
Here's another gorgeous look from Oscar night. I love it when stars are brave enough to use color in their makeup for the red carpet. Even though subtle, Michelle Williams wore a shimmering silver blue eyeliner on her bottom lashline. I recreated a similar, but more dramatic look, here.
On my face, I am wearing Guerlain Parare Gold Radiance Foundation in 03 dusted with MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder. On cheeks, Chanel Joues Contraste in Rose Dust. Lips MAC Kissable Lip Color in Enchantee mixed with Mehr lipstick.
1. Prime eye with Nars Smudge Proof Eye Primer.
2. Inglot Duraline + Sugarpill Lumi ChromaLust Loose Eyeshadow creates a luminous white, blue/green iridescent base to hold onto color all night.
3. Add lid color. I'm using MAC Eyeshadows in Waft and Gentle Fume.
4. Highlight inner corners of the eyes with shimmering white. I'm using Rondelle eyeshadow by MAC.
5. Line the lower lashline thickly with a grey blue pencil. I'm using Chanel Precision Eye Define in Denim.
6. Line the outer 1/3 of the upper and lower waterline in a grey pencil. I'm using Laura Mercier pencil eyeliner in Stormy Grey.
7. Add MAC Reflects Pearl pigment to the lower lashline. Use a solution like MAC Mixing Medium to help adhere these tiny glitters to the eye area. (Remember to use caution and read labels when it comes to glitters.)
8. Curl lashes and add mascara. I'm using Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill.
9. Add false lashes and fill in eyebrows. I used Bobbi Brown Gel Long Wear Eye Liner in Espresso Ink on my eyebrows.
A pretty look for your Blue Valentine.
