Steal the Look: Lara Dutta
Check out Lara's eye makeup in this photo.
It's a great example of a technique I call "layering eyeliner", and how it can instantly add a punch of color to an otherwise neutral makeup look. Here's how you can get the look too:
* After applying a neutral shadow on the upper lids and the crease (like NARS eyeshadow duo in Tokyo), line both your upper and lower lashlines with black kohl, being sure to line the waterline or the inner rim of your lower lashline as well (we love MAC Smolder for this).
* Then, dip an angled brush (like MAC 266) into MAC Fluidline in Blue Peep and draw a thin line on your upper lashline right above the black one you've just drawn. You can choose to make the Blue Peep line thicker if you want, it all depends on what kind of look you're going for and how big your eyes are.
*Pile on the black mascara on both top and bottom lashes, and viola, watch how your brown eyes pop with color!
*To get Lara's golden pink lips, line your lips with a lip pencil close to the natural color of your lips, (for me, it's MAC Plum) and top it off with MAC Plushglass in Posh it Up (love this shade, you could even wear it on your own if your lips already have alot of natural color to them).
