L’Oréal Paris ambassador, Blake Lively made her debut on the Cannes red carpet wearing a gorgeous burgundy Gucci Première gown, followed by two more stunning looks by Chanel Couture and Gucci Première again.

Here’s how to get her look. The actress wore a shimmering gunmetal rendition of the smokey eye look with a smouldering finish. I just loved her flawless base, lush lashes and sultry eyeliner. So take your beauty cues from Blake and master her bold smokey eye by applying the below.

Start by applying an eye makeup primer to your eyelids for long-lasting coverage. Follow by covering your eyelids and inner corners of your eyes with a base coat that matches your skin tone which will make blending your colours easier.

Using a small eyeshadow blending brush apply a deep gunmetal shade at the corners and along the lower lashline, blending along the way. It’s important to apply it as close to the lash line as possible – applying it to the edges is key to getting the perfect result.

Using a kohl pencil, line your upper and lower lashline while using a smudge brush to smudge the corners accentuating the shape of your eyes.

Apply two or three generous coats of mascara for an extra dramatic look.
