I love the unexpected color that pops with a jewel-toned smoky eye. By swapping black for cobalt or emerald, you can take your eye look from basic to brilliant. Lea Michele sported such a look at the premiere of American Horror Story (an FX show I'm DYING to get into!). The star's makeup pro, Kayleen McAdams, tells Us Weekly how to get the look.
"For a healthy, glowing look, I prepped Lea's skin with Shu Uemura Instant Glow Cream. I then used Cle De Peau Foundation all over the skin, Bobbi Brown Concealer where needed, and Kevyn Aucoin Highlighter in Candlelight. I contoured her cheeks with Nars Blush in Luster, a sheer golden apricot color."
"I wanted to create a smoky eye, but with a modern twist, using blues. On the lids I used Dior Eyeshadow in Smoky Navy, and lined the eyes with Chanel Long Lasting Eyeliner in Marine. To make the eyes pop, I applied two coats of Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, a deep, rich black. Finally, we kept the lips neutral, using Nars Lipstick in Blonde Venus, topped with a bit of Chanel Glossimer in Futile."
