We wanted to go for a Gunmetal Smokey eye, a little edgier of a look to go with her outfit (which was a velvet Gunmetal grey outfit signed by Max Mara).




The Skin

Caitriona has amazing skin already, so I don’t like to use a lot of foundation on her.
My go-to for her is the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, which I apply with a damp beauty blender to keep the coverage sheer.
If she has any blemishes (which she rarely does) I usually apply the NARS cream concealer.






The Cheeks

To keep the skin looking fresh, I used a cream blush by Laura Mercier called Rosebud. I applied the blush to the apples of her cheeks, blending up the cheek bone with the bottom of the beauty blender.

In addition, I tapped a touch of highlighter to the apples of her cheeks and top of the cheekbone: I love the Hourglass Strobe Lighting Palette for this look.

The Eyes

First I primed the eyes with the Hourglass primer, then started with a light grey shadow just on the lids by Lorac called Slate.
Then I lined the eyes with the Laura Mercier gel eye liner in black and blended to soften with a small fluffy brush.

On top of that, I layered a Lorac black shadow just along the lash line, top and bottom, thicker on the outer corners of the eye and tapering in.
As for Mascara, my favorite is the Kevyn Aucoin Volumizing Mascara: I always do several coats to build natural lash volume.









The Lips

Since the Smoky Eye is the focal point of Caitriona’s beauty make up, we wanted to keep the lips natural.
I used the Avon Glazewear Gloss in Perfect Nude.



The Must-Haves

Your Beauty Secret to Share

Always pre-dampen your beauty blender for a natural, sheer coverage!

Apply lip gloss with your fingertips to keep the color soft and the gloss not too sticky

Use powder sparingly. I only powder Caitriona on her T-zone to keep the skin fresh, but powder can settle in fine lines and age the skin.
