Eye shadows in rust, orange, or red tones always look so pretty in the pan, but often make you look sickly when swept across your lids. At the Los Angeles premiere of The Bling Ring
, Dianna Agron
managed to make the color wearable thanks to some careful layering and blending. “I wanted Dianna’s look to be modern and understated,” said her makeup artist Georgie Eisdell. “Her eyes were the main focus.” Eisdell blended two powder shadows to create a copper-rust shade, then applied the hue to Agron’s crease and outer corners to create depth. She used the color along Agron’s lower lash line, then worked a soft pink on the inner corners of her eyes to act as a subtle highlight. When creating a similar look, apply a soft brown liner along your upper lash line to provide definition, then use a shadow brush to blur any harsh lines. This prevents your eyes from looking washed-out while adding a slight smoky element.
