The Look: Keira Knightley




When I was thinking about celebrity looks that I could post about on here, Keira Knightley instantly came to mind. She always looks fabulous on the red carpet, and is usually wearing chocolate brown or bronze smokey eyes, with a pale pink cheek and either light pink or nude lip. For today’s look I took inspiration from this photo, which I think is representative of the type of look she always goes for. Here’s what I did, I hope you enjoy!

Face: As usual, Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, and Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.

Eyes: Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in Cognac Sable – I took the darkest shade in the palette and washed it all over my lids, as well as smudged it along my lower lash line with a small smudge brush; Maybelline Gel Liner – I applied this liner to my upper lash line, as well as used it to tight line my eyes; Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Licorice – I used this shadow to smoke out my upper and lower lash lines, blending it with the same smudge brush; Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeliner – I applied this black liner to my waterline; Once I had completed all of these steps, I took a bit more of the dark brown shade from the Cognac Sable palette and applied it to my lid, and further blended out the edges with a Mac 217 brush. To complete the eye look I applied several coats of L’Oreal Lash Out Butterfly Mascara to my lashes, top and bottom.

Cheeks: Keira never seems to have too much color on her cheeks – usually a pale pink or peach. I went with Jouer’s Mineral Blush in Rose, a beautiful pale rose shade that compliments a smokey eye beautifully.

Lips: For a pink-nude lip, I chose Mac Patisserie Lipstick.

    I totally love her look too! My own colouring is very similar, and I am big on accentuated eyes and nude lips.
