The NYC Harry Potter premiere was last night, and although I don't have the ready cash to steal the Bottega Venetta dress look that Emma Watson wore last night.....I can easily steal her hair and makeup look! And I plan on it!!!
Emma Watson showed off a dark and mature side of herself on the red carpet last night:
She was captivating!! But what's even better, is her makeup look!!!
That eye look must be copied, immediately!!
The transition from the lime green to black, but ending in a bronze/gold shimmer is unique, and makes a great night time look, especially out with your gal pals!
You can easily soften this look by skipping the application below the eyes, and opt for a smudged liner instead. (Don't skip the mascara on the bottom lashes)
Use a bold statement color like Make Up For Ever's bright pigment shadows ($16) (apply wet with q tip or brush for more dramatic effect)
or MAC's pigment shadow
Use a matte black shadow/liner (no shimmer, it will take away from the bronze and the bright color), a great product is the new Buxom Waterproof Smokey Eye Stick ($18)
it smudges perfectly!!!
To get a great "cat-eye" shape with the bronze glitter, use a "glitter glue" such as Too Faced's Glitter Glue ($18 at Ulta)
apply the glitter glue to the eye area in the shape you desire, then use a small tipped brush (such as eyeliner or smudging brush) to dab on the pigment over the sticky glue.
REMEMBER: do not ever use crafting glitter on your face, only use cosmetics glitter that is produced with the intention of being use on the face or eyes!
A neutral blush and lip color is all you need to pair up with this statement eye.
Finish the look by slicking back wet hair into a low bun or pony tail with gel, try Tresseme Tres Gel ($3 at drug stores)
Add some statement earrings and you are ready to cast a spell!! (ha!)
