Kristen Wiig’s luminous, bronzy makeup is just about perfect for a summer evening — and it’s an incredibly sexy alternative to a grey or black smoky eye. This looks just as gorgeous on all skin tones as well. The best part is, this look uses some of my very favorite makeup products of all time. Try these all-star products yourself:
Start with a primer from your lid to your eye brow to give your shadow grip and staying powder — very important on hot days to avoid shiny lids and creasing shadow. I love the moisturizing Laura Mercier Eye Basics Primer in Linen, $25.
Apply a cream shadow like Joie across the upper lid from the lash line to just above the crease. Try Jouer Crème Eyeshadow in Suede, $20. It’s the perfect swipe-on-with-your-fingers shadow.
Dot a shimmer shadow on the inner corners of the eye to brighten and open your eyes. Try a shimmering nude pink like Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten, $18.
Line the top and bottom lash line with a dark bronzy-brown liner like Chanel Precision Eye Definer in Brun-Cuivré, $29, to keep things natural, yet defined.
Top lashes with a lengthening mascara like Maybelline Full And Soft Mascara in Very Black, $6.
Dust cheeks with a peachy blush. I love MAC Powder Blush in Peachykeen, $21, for it’s subtle and sheer mix of pink, peach and gold shimmer.
Finish the look with a pretty neutral gloss like NARS Lip Gloss in Chihuahua, $25, a soft, sheer guava shade. I’m obsessed with this shade because it’s almost sheer, but pulls together a classic look.
