Keira Knightley wore a dramatic navy smoky eye to the L.A. premiere of her latest movie Jack Ryan. Here’s how celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee created the look, with some easy makeup tips for recreating the look at home.
Kate started by prepping Keira’s flawless skin with the soon-to-be-released CHANEL Hydra Beauty Crème. Then she applied CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 for a natural glow.
To accentuate Keira’s incredible cheekbones, she dusted Le Blush Crème de Chanel in Cheeky, a pretty nude blush (hitting stores in May) on the apples of her cheeks.
This look is all about the eyes, and since Keira was wearing a CHANEL navy dress, Kate decided to play that up with a navy smoky eye.
She started by lining the inside of the eye, upper and lower lash line with CHANEL Le Crayon Khôl Intense Eye Pencil in Marine, gently blending on the lash line.
Then she applied one of our favourite liquid eyeshadows, CHANEL Limited Edition Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Apparition, a beautiful shimmering navy.
After curling the lashes, Kate applied one coat of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir.
This look only needs a very natural lip, so Kate used CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Mademoiselle for a simple, just-bitten colour.
