A smokey eye is always in style and an easy way to transition your makeup from day to night. Just apply some black and gray shadows, and you’re ready for your office holiday party! Get the exact how-to on Amber Heard‘s look below!
Celeb makeup artist Melanie Inglessis used Orlane products for the look.
“She was wearing a very sexy Dolce & Gabbana tux and so we wanted her to look really cool — which she already is. It was a very fresh look, very British Teddy Boy, and so we kept the skin dewy with a rock and roll smokey eye.”
Here’s how to get the look:
Melanie prepped the skin by massaging Orlane Elixir Royale into her face. “It’s this really amazing hydrating and soothing serum,” explained Melanie.
Next, she used Orlane Teint Absolu Treatment Foundation in #11. “Amber has gorgeous skin — it’s beyond. She doesn’t need a lot of foundation in real life. This foundation is perfect for her on the red carpet, because it has a dewy finish and really lets the skin breathe throughout.”
Melanie then applied Orlane Poudre Teinte Multi-Soleil for a glow and dewiness. “Amber is fair, so it gives a nice glow to the skin,” explained Melanie. To combat shine, she applied a thin veil of Orlane Poudre Libre Transparent Loose Powder.
Melanie created a “rock and roll smokey look” to match Amber’s sexy tuxedo. “I wanted a really strong smokey eye, so I used a Make Up For Ever Kohl Pencil in Black to create my shape and define the entire eye, then went over it with Chantecaille Le Chrome Luxe Eye Duo in Monte Carlo.” On top of that, she applied Chantecaille Lasting Eye Shade in Lapis in the crease and under the eyes for depth.
For a slight shimmer, Melanie used Orlane Baume A Paupieres Ensoleille highlighter pencil on the inner corner of the eyes and on the brow bone. “I wanted to bring lift to the eyes so it wasn’t too dark all over, to contrast the smokey look,” explained Melanie. Underneath eyes, she applied Orlane Skincare Highlighter Care Brush for an extra glam look.
She finished the smokey eye by curling the lashes and then applying two coats of Orlane Mascara Soin Volume in black.
To prep her lips, she used Orlane Baume Magnifique Levres for added hydration. She lined lips with Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil in Nude Beige and finally applied Chantecaille Natural Lipstick Lip Chic in Patience for a pretty, light pink lip that didn’t contrast with her eye makeup.
