Ginnifer Goodwin rocked a gorgeous purple smokey eye this week at a MAC Cosmetics dinner at the Chateau Marmont that’s just the right mix of soft and sultry. Here’s how makeup artist Mai Quynh created her makeup.


Prep the skin with Crème de la Mer Moisturiser.

For your base, apply Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation in Sunny Beige and use Dior Skin Radiance Booster Pen in Candle Light 002 under eyes to hide any dark circles.

For blush, arm yourself with Josie Maran Cream Blush in Sunset and apply to the apples of the cheeks. For the final flourish, brush on Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Blush in Exposed over the cream blush.

Set the look with Shiseido Translucent Pressed Powder.


Apply Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Shadow in Ice to the eyelids, from the lash line to the crease. Next, arm yourself with YSL Ombres 5 Lumieres in 4 Lilac Sky and mix the dark purple and the medium purple together and sweep over the cream shadow, blending it into the crease and upward.

To keep the look super-smouldering, smudge the dark purple shadow along the lower lash line, too.

Apply two coats of Lancome Definicils Mascara in Black. For extra va-va-voom, add a few individual lashes from Ardell using Duo eyelash adhesive.


Apply Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in 79 Plumetis to lips.
