Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Scarlett Johansson’s Gilded Smoky Eye Tutorial

Scarlett Johansson showed up at the Mango Fashion Awards yesterday with the prettiest gilded smoky eyes and pink lips.

To get Scarlett’s eyes, start by applying a muted mustard color (try NARS Indian Summer Duo Eyeshadow) all over the eyelid. Using a fluffy brush like MAC #217 Blending Brush, darken the crease and outer corner with a charcoal shade. Blend and blend for a smoky effect. Next, run a black pencil around the eyes and soften the line with a Q-tip. Apply several coats of black mascara and finish the look by adding a dab of metallic yellow gold eyeshadow (try MAC Golden Lemon Pigment) in the inner corners to really make your eyes pop.

Leave them bare like Scarlett did. If you must wear a bit of color, apply a very light dusting of peach blush onto the cheekbones.

Pucker up with a light nude pink like MAC Creme Cup Lipstick.
