Eva Longoria nearly took our breath away when she appeared on the Cannes Opening Ceremony red carpet. Her soft pink Marchesa gown had a long, dramatic train, and her sexy nude lip and messy updo were the perfect finishing details. While we can’t provide the dress, we can let you know how to achieve the same sultry makeup at home.
Step 1: To get a dramatic eye like Eva, line the eyes with a true black eyeliner, like L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner ($8.95, Drugstore.com). Don’t be afraid to make the line thicker on the top lid.
Step 2: Sweep a light brown eyeshadow on the entire lid, all the way up to the brow bone, like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Iced Latte ($7.92, Drugstore.com).
Step 3: Take a black eyeshadow and apply it to the base of your lashes. It doesn’t have to be neat, but you don’t want to go too far up the lid.
Step 4: Use a dark brown shadow, like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Continuous Cocoa ($7.99, Ulta.com) to blend the black and lighter brown together. You want the eye to have an ombré effect, going from darker at the lashes to lighter.
Step 5: Finish off the eyes with a few coats of black mascara.
Step 6: Give the rest of your face a little color with a soft pink blush and a nude lip gloss, like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Le Gloss 8HR in Coral Sands ($7.99, Drugstore.com).
