Keira Knightley at Anna Karenina LA Premier Inspired Look...







Keira Knightley at the LA Premier of Anna Karenina...






I've seen the images of Keira Knightley at Anna Karenina LA Premier when I was getting my car MOTed... I instantly loved that playful and witty make-up she was wearing, a very thick and straight cat-eye flick with a blue toned shimmery lipstick... Not a look you get to see on Keira very often, but there's something really gratifying about it and so I decided to have some fun and try to recreate this look... I could have gone thicker and longer with the black eyeliner but I don't think it would suit me very well... It's important to know your own face and how far you could take it... You can always take the main aspects of a look and adapt it to what suits you best... So here it goes...

There was hardly any colour on Keira's eyelids, so I used the soft brown shade [bottom right] from the Dior 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palette in 754 Rosy Tan, which I believe came out last spring... For that thick intensely black line I used the matte shade from my beloved Chanel Professional Eyeliner Duo in 10 Noir-Lame - in summer I read somewhere that it will be discontinued and so I went and got it, if it is still around I would really recommend to check it out... On lower lashes I applied Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in Black, the only mascara that doesn't run on my lower lashes! 

I also decided to add a little more flirtation to the look by adding some individual lashes... I used the Ardell Individual Lashes in medium length... When I tried to use the individual lashes for the first time I ruined about four of them... But then you get used to them very quickly, and I can honestly say they are much easier to wear than a full-set... When I wear them now I can hardly feel them, they are incredibly light and you don't have the desire to take rip off at the end of the night... Also you can be quite creative and choose what look you want... For this look I applied them criss cross over one another right at the end to elongate the eye and also for extra flutter...

Keira didn't appear to wear much on her cheeks and so I went for a subtle but luminous blush - Chanel in 65 Espiegle a very pretty and light peachy pink, it is hard to over-do your cheeks with this one... For lips the closest colour I could find in my collection to resemble Keira's cool toned shimmery pout is Estee Lauder Pure Color Lasting Shimmer Lipstick in 16 Candy, which came out for the BCA Collection... Et voilĂ !
