Cobie Smulders was looking stunning on the red carpet recently, sporting a gorgeous black gown, glossy dark locks and oh-so-elegant makeup. If you have brunette hair and light eyes, this is one look that you will want to copy for your next night out. You can also copy it for your next day out, as this is a fantastic makeup palette for work or play.
Start with the eyes by layering shimmery peach tones with medium and dark browns. Cobie has concentrated the darkest color of brown on the outside corner of her eyelid, creating a smoldering smokey effect. Dark brown eyeliner is used on the top lash line to create a dramatic dark line, but instead of repeating this on the bottom, she has used a bit of brown eye shadow instead. This is a great technique to use if you are worried about enhancing your dark circles or the dreaded raccoon look that you often get with using eyeliner on the bottom.
On the lips, choose a light shimmery peachy pink to bring out your eyes and make your skin tone look fresh and youthful. Cobie has used a bit of peach pink blush under the cheekbonesâ€”a great tip for sculpting the face.
