Anna Kendrick smoldered with gunmetal eyes at the Pitch Perfect premiere in L.A. Adding edginess to her fresh face, makeup artist Vanessa Scali shares her secrets with us on how she created the sultry lids for the actress. “The gunmetal eye is bold enough to be sexy but soft enough to not be too overpowering,” Scali says. To get the star’s smoky eye, Scali first applied a metallic cream shadow from the lash-line toward the end of the brow, concentrating on the outer corners of the eye. She then blended a lighter pewter shadow onto the inner corners and middle of her lids, allowing Kendrick’s eyes to really pop. Scali finished off the look by rimming the top lash line with a kohl liner and bottom with a silver pencil.
