Mary-Kate...


Back in high school I used to watch the Full House, it was impossible not to adore the super adorable Olsen twins... I always thought of them as the pretties baby-face cute little sisters! Little did I know they would grown up to be two beautiful and timeless-style-icons... The Olsen sisters are renowned for their smokey eye... The eyeshadow under the lower lash line is always taken quite far down... I realised the look I tend to wear most is not too far off, it's easy and quick...  My hair isn't as blond currently, but the rest, colour-wise, is pretty similar: skin tone, eye colour... I was actually quite surprised when I found out that Lancome Ombree Absolue Palette in B10 Parures d'Etoiles was used to create their smokey eye looks in this Elle issue... It's a blue/grey tone eye palette... When I think of Olsen signature eye look - red brown or warm bronzy colours immediately jump to mind, it's the colours that naturally sit a lot better with their complexion and make grey/blue eyes pop... Blue and grey eyeshadows I find tend to wash out grey/blue eyes...

Here is a list of products I used for this look: eyes - MAC Paint Pot in Nubile, Bourjois Intense Extrait Eyeshadow in 08, Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner in Black, Lancome Doll Eyes Mascara in Black, which btw is also the mascara the Olsen sisters are wearing in Elle, it's a great mascara(!); and lips - Revlon Matte Lipstick in Nude Attitude... Basically you want to create a flawless skin with dewy youthful finish, everything should be staying pretty nude and natural, and the impact should be on the eyes... Warm shades of browns works best... Use one eye shadow all over the lid, apply it in a round-ish shape, blending it out... For intensity I applied Supershock liner all around the eye including the waterline, and then smudge out the edges of the liner using a touch of the same eyeshadow, you will see how the black underneath makes the eyeshadow colour stand out more... Et voilĂ !
