Gwyneth Paltrow can do no wrong in my style book and this look is no exception.
Here's how you can achieve her soft, smoky makeup.
WHO: Celebrity Makeup Artist Katey Denno
WHERE: The Michael Kors Golden Heart Gala In New York
BEAUTY INSPIRATION: "I was equally inspired by the sleek ponytail and new lowlights she recently had done as I was by her description of the Michael Kors dress and sharply pointed white heels she would be wearing to the event. The hard edges of the dress and shoes told me that her makeup should be minimal and focus on one feature.
She suggested a smokey eye, but I took it a touch heavier than she's used to; luckily, she liked it! I love her in a dark smokey eye, particularly with a little navy and gray blended with black. I opted to forgo lining the inner rim, which I felt gave her smokey eye a softness to it."
GET THE LOOK: "Skin glows with Ilia Rose and Sandalwood Dace Oil Prep.
Lashes curled and numerous coats of CoverGirl Lash Blast in Very Black applied to the top and bottom, and then lashes are combed once nearly dry. Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow in Navy smudged along the lashes and blended up into the lid, as well as smudged along the outer corner of the lower lid. Makeup Forever Eyeshadow in Dark Grey was pressed into the outer V shape of the top lid, up to the crease. Vapour Organic Eyeliner in Black, smudged along top lashes and outer 1/3 of bottom lash.
Keeping the under eye smooth and flawless is key with this intense of an eye. I used Lancôme Waterproof Concealer to finish the look.
Her cheeks were bronzed with Dr. Haushka Bronzing Duo in Summer Expressions.
Lips stayed neutral with Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner in Nobody's Baby and Ilia's soon to-be-launched (I had a sneak peek!) lip gloss."
