Red Carpet Fashion and Makeup: Angelina Jolie at The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Premiere


Actress Angelina Jolie showed up with hubby Brad Pitt at the premiere of Brad’s new film, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, in Berlin yesterday.

Wearing a white wide-legged silk suit with an asymmetric chignon (that is hot hot hot this season btw!), gigantic earring on one side, Angie is looking more stylish than ever! Not to mention her smoky makeup is sultry yet sophisticated and totally flawless! She definitely has the look nailed down to a T!

To copy Angie’s makeup:

* Rim your eyes with a charcoal kohl liner, making the liner thicker on the outer corner. Smudge and smudge some more to really smoke it out. Revlon’s Bedroom Eyes Powder Liner is great for this.

* Apply mascara on both top and bottom and clean up any fallouts.

* Finish with a nude lip color like Giorgio Armani’s Lipstick Mania in #32 and top with a glittery clear gloss like MAC’s Tinted Lipglass in Snowscene.

  1. Hey Phyllis, I don’t know if you already know about it, but starting today, department stores nationwide are giving away $175 million worth of beauty products. It is all part of this class action lawsuit that occurred years ago. Stores include Macys, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks, Dillards, and more. Some of the beauty products they are giving away are FULL SIZE, including mascara from Lancome and lotion from Chanel. But the freebies are limited to one per store, and supplies are running out fast!
