Get the Look: Jessica Szohr’s Inky, Smoky Eyes

Premiere Of Twentieth Century Fox's "The Internship" - ArrivalsThere are many different ways to achieve a smoky eye, and one of the most intense is rimming eyes in a black eyeliner, as seen on Jessica Szohr at the premiere of ‘The Internship‘ on Wednesday.

However applying eyeliner on the waterline–the part of your lid right above the lower lashline, and right underneath your upper lashes–can be tricky for the at-home makeup artist, since some liners create too large a line and others run, since the waterline is, in fact, watery!

So we went straight to the pros to find out the best way to line the waterline (also called tightlining).

Makeup artist Nikole Morrow-Pettus says it’s best to use a waterproof, creamy eye pencil and gently pull down on your eye to expose the lower waterline making sure you stop before the tear duct, so you don’t clog it.

For the upper lid, look up, so you can see the upper waterline easier.

And to get the specifics on recreating this look at home, Jessica’s makeup artist Mai Quynh shared how she made Jessica’s eyes smolder:

First, she applied Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Colour Shadow in Caviar along Jessica’s lash line and up to the crease.

Next, she mixed the taupe and black colors from the Dolce & Gabbana The Eyeshadow Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Femme Fatale 100 and applied them to her crease. Then she smudged the black color along the bottom lash line.

Then came the waterlining! Mai rimmed the top and bottom lids of Jessica’s eyes with Becca Automatic Eye Pencil in Majorca.

And finally, she brushed on two coats of Diorshow Black Out Mascara.

Of course with such intense eyes, it’s important to keep the rest of the makeup subdued, so Mai used a subtle wash of tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Blushing Bride on the apples of Jessica’s cheeks and NARS Satin Lipstick in Tolède–a soft rose colour–to keep the lips fresh and subtle.

Who Wore Valentino Better? Jennifer Nettles or Jessica Szohr

Back in June last year, Jennifer Nettles wore a Valentino Pre-Fall 2011 dress to the 2011 CMT Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee.

The singer paired her leather-and-lace dress with an asymmetrical neckline with black strappy sandals.

Former ‘Gossip Girl‘ star Jessica Szohr wore the same dress to the Valentino Rodeo Drive flagship store opening in Beverly Hills in March.

With her jet-black hair pulled back in a ponytail, she completed her look with dangling earrings, an onyx cocktail ring and black studded Valentino slingbacks.

I prefer the dress with the looser-fitted A-line skirt, so Jessica wins for me.

2011 Met Gala Round-Up

Here is the final round up from the 2011 Met Gala.

Salma Hayek wore a costume Alexander McQueen peach organza rose dress. We have all questioned her McQueen choices in the past, but this type of gown is perfect for her. She accessorized with a McQueen clutch and Gucci jewels.

Margherita Missoni is her own best brand ambassador. She was glowing wearing an ombre Missoni Fall 2011 knit dress with a feathered skirt.

Sofia Vergara wore a Carolina Herrera strapless blossom print faille gown. Like Renee she’s found the perfect designer for her. So refreshing not to see her twins spilling out.

Anna Dello Russo chose a masculine military Alexander McQueen look which included a black duchesse satin tailcoat, white shirt and gold fern embroidered pants.

I love the look, she’s been doing the masculine thing a lot lately, but that Egg on her head is bordering on GaGa terrority. Ridiculous.
