Steal the Look: Leona Lewis' Makeup at the Grammy Awards Salute to Icons Event

My favorite makeup looks from the 2009 Grammy Awards weren't at the awards event itself but from the Salute to Icons event the night before. One of my favorites was Leona Lewis, who wore an extremely wearable, and easy to duplicate, look - no crazy colors here. I duplicated her eye makeup on my own eyes below.

To get Leona's eye makeup look:
1. Start off with any type of eye primer or concealer to even out the skin on the eyes.
2. Apply a light silver eye shadow all over the lids up until the crease. Drag down the shadow to line the lower lashes. I used the light silver shade in the NARS Eye Shadow Duo in Underworld.
3. Apply a sparkly white eye shadow to the middle of the lid and to the inner corners of the eyes. I used Shiseido Hydro-Power Shadow in Whitelights.
4. Apply any black liquid liner to the upper lashline. Extend the liner just a tiny bit beyond the eyes but not too much.
5. Apply a bright navy blue liner to the bottom lashline, making sure that some of the silver shadow peeps through. I used MAC Powerpoint Pencil in Navy Stain which is brighter than most navy liners (more of a royal blue) and achieves Leona's look very well.
6. Finish with tons of black mascara.
So easy, right?! Stay tuned, I also duplicated Rihanna's look from the same event and will be posting that soon!
