Kristen Wiig’s ‘Wake Up’ Eye Makeup Trick

Anchorman 2 Premiere, Sponsored By Buffalo David BittonThroughout her ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ press tour, actress Kristen Wiig has been taking fashion risk after fashion risk, but has kept her hair and makeup simple. Things were no different last night at the New York City premiere of the film.

Kristen’s makeup was quite simple, and she employed two of the best tricks in the book to help widen your eyes and make yourself look more awake.

Considering she’s been globetrotting from premiere to premiere, the actress is likely feeling quite jetlagged at this point, so it was quite smart of her makeup artist to use these tricks.

First up, Kristen’s inner eyelids (the lower waterline) were lined with a white eyeliner. This trick instantly brightens the eye area and any nude-, white- or peach-colored liner creates this effect. Try Merle Norman Inner Eyeliner, which is specifically designed to stay put on that wet area of the eyes, or Blinc Eyeliner Pencil in White, which is also a waterproof formula.

The next trick is to put white eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eyes. This also helps the eyes look wider and more awake. Try Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in White 0 for a matte finish, or if you prefer a pearlized effect, Stila Jewel Eye Shadow in Opal is a great option.

As a final element, Kristen’s makeup artist didn’t bring her upper or lower eyeliner all the way to the inner corners of the eyes, which helps accentuate the white that is there.

Voilà! Wide awake.
