Keira Knightley always looks so impeccable and innovative. She’s a red carpet darling, a favorite of all the major fashion design houses, and always looking flawless! I’m just loving the way she amped up this smoky eye at the premiere of her new film Begin Again last week. Black and gray smoky eyes are always a safe, classic look, But, this sparkling navy blue look (A more dramatic version of the electric blue eye looks we’ve been seeing oh-so much of this summer!) is such a great twist on a—shall we say boring?—classic.
To try this look for yourself, any shimmering eyeshadow color in a deep blue shade will do the trick. Start with a taupe eyeshadow base (We like the Studio Single Eyeshadow in Saddle or Coffee Bean, depending on your skin tone). Then, blend your shimmering blue shade onto the eyelid, and smudged under the lower lashline as well. The blue shades of our Studio Prism Eyeshadow in Smoke are ideal for this look. For extra-enhanced eyes, we love to finish this look off with the Studio Eye Enhancing Mascara in Black Sapphire. This will give the blue shadow some extra WOW!
For the rest of the face, keep it soft (naturally!). We like the Studio HD Blush in Headliner or Essential Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal for a soft, glowing, and photo-ready look like Kiera’s. But, if that formula’s not for you, the Studio Blush in Tickled Pink, Pressed Mineral Blush in Sweet Retreat, or Essential Blush with Brush in Innocence, will give a similar color in a powder. Nude lips are the way to go! Our Studio Moisturizing Lipstick in Party in the Buff is the perfect color for this look, or in the shade Cheeky if you’re of a deeper complexion.
