Get Charlize Theron’s Smoldering Eyes

Charlize Theron has been hitting the red carpet hard this month on an international tour promoting her new film ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’. And, as always, she has been accompanied by her make-up artist, international beauty expert to Dior, Shane Paish.

‘There are two looks that I tend to lean towards when it comes to Charlize,’ says Paish. ‘One is the dark, smoky eye and pale lip (she looks amazing in this!) and the other is a softer, more bronzy look.’

Either way he always sticks to the basics: defined brows with contoured eyes and highlighted cheekbones.

To create a Charlize-style smoky eye, Paish first uses a flesh-coloured eyeliner on the inside of the lid to open the eye and blend into the skin tone, killing any pink or redness the inner lid may have.

Then he lines the upper and lower lash line with waterproof liner and coats the lashes with tons of Diorshow mascara.

Here are some of his favourite products he uses to create Charlize’s looks:

Skin: DiorSkin Nude Natural Glow Crème-Gel Makeup and Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation.

Eyes: Dior Crayon Eyeliner – Waterproof and Diorshow Extase Mascara.

Lips: Rouge Dior Lipcolor in Tulip Pink #448 and Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Beige Tweed #227.

Cheeks: Diorblush in Pink in Love #889
and Diorskin Poudre Shimmer Ultra Shimmering All Over Face Powder in Amber diamond.

    She’s so beautiful that lowkey makeup works for her.
