Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell created a romantic smoky eye in plum for or Cate Blanchett’s Oscars look. Here’s how to nail the look.
This softly striking look was all a about the eyes. Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell used Giorgio Armani Eye and Brow Maestro in #6; Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Solo eyeshadow in #5 and #15 and Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in #8 and #10 to get the look.
Jeanine started by filling in Cate’s brows with Eye and Brow Maestro, then got onto the plum smoky eye by “applying Eyes to Kill Solo in #15 all over the lid and into the crease,” she says.
Lobell then wrapped this shadow down and around the eye into bottom lash line before dampening a liner brush and using Eyes to Kill Solo in #5 as a liner to “create a blurred, feathered look instead of a harsh line”.
Lowell then layered Eye Tint in #10 in Cate’s lash line for the smoldering eye effect, followed with Eye Tint #8 “tapped in the centre of her lid and under her brow bone to open and brighten the eyes.”
A hint of Giorgio Armani Cheek Fabric blush in #506 was applied to the apples of Cate’s cheeks to create a “pink glow.”
On the lips, Lobell used Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Lip Pencil in #1 and Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani in #103, applying the pencil all over Cate’s lips to ensure a nice and even lip all evening long before “applying the pinky nude Rouge d’Armani to complete Cate’s red carpet beauty look,” says Lobell.
