get the look: Evan Rachel Wood, Golden globes 2009

Personally I don't know why Perez keeps bagging on Evan Rachel Wood. OK so she was a bit unoriginal with the whole Dita Vin Teese copy look but I have always liked her. She had me in Across the universe and that's all it took for her to win me over.
I was watching the golden globes and just stunned on how beautiful she looked. I love her makeup and think women with fair skin and blue eyes really suits this look. If you want to copy the look for a night out to town, which suits people with blue eyes. Here is my quick and easy way to copy it.
On her lids she has used icy shimmery blue tones.
Christian Dior has a great 5 colour palette called blue croisette (I will use this as reference fot this look)

  • Start with a lighter shimmery blue as base, covering entire lid up to the crease, then go over with a slightly darker shade of blue. This will create a beautiful contrast. Finish off by dabbing some green shadow on the middle of the lid.
  • Along the crease line you should pick a darker more greyish blue shadow that melt into your crease by using your brush swiping along the lines, blending well. This will create dimension and enhance the depth of your natural crease.
  • With a gray eyeliner pencil, draw eyeliner on both upper and lower lash line.
  • With a white eyeliner pencil, draw the wet crease inside your lower lash line
  • CURL THOSE LASHES, put on mascara.
  • Use white shimmer shadow and dab some in the inner corner of your eyes.
  • THIS IS WHERE THE SECRET TIP COMES IN. Use your blush (preferably a peachy color, though I use MAC Sincere) take your eye brush pencil and swipe some blush along your upper crease area as well as your lower eyelid. (Dont use too much color here, you just want to add that hint of peach) By adding a warm peach or pink around dark or hard colors you will soften up the eyes. I always add a bit of pink or peach especially to the outer crease right beneath the eyebrow area where I usually go over with a white shadow to highlight.
  • Use peachy blush on your cheeks and finish off with a neutral colored pink/peach lipstick and cover with gloss.
  • IF you want to really enhance the look, use fake eyelashes.
