Get Kate Mara’s Stunning Simple Smoky Eye At Home



Who: Kate Mara

Where: The Golden Globe Awards

Why we like it: While many, many celebrities try the smoky eye, a fair few are unsuccessful. Whether the look is too dark or it's a case of too much liner (cough, Alison Williams at this very event), this simple look is easy to get wrong. We love Kate Mara's uncomplicated, gunmetal-toned eye that's evening appropriate without being overly dramatic. 

How to get it at home: Start with a light foundation, such as Marc Jacobs Beauty's Marvelous Mousse Transformative Foundation ($55), blending it well from the center of your face outwards. Then add some contour back into the face with a subtle blush, such as Tarte's Cheek Stain in Exposed ($30).

We love the House of Cards star's modern Audrey Hepburn brows. This straight style has fallen out of fashion, but we're all for a revival. If you're looking to change the shape of your brows at home, try a kit, such as Sephora's Fall in Line Brow Stencil Kit ($12), which lets you play before you commit. Get her gunmetal-toned eye with a cream shadow, such as Diorshow's Fusion Mono Long-Wear Professional Mirror-Shine Eyeshadow in 091 Nocturne ($30). Define the eyes with a precise eyeliner, such as the Always Sharp 3D Waterproof Kohl Liner in 3D Galaxy ($20), on the waterline and top them off with a curling mascara, such as the cult favorite High Impact Curling Mascara from Clinique ($16). Finish your look with a subtle peachy-pink gloss, such as Buxom's Full-On Lip Polish in Sophia ($19)
