Over the weekend, Angelina Jolie upped the wow factor once again with her beautiful red-carpet look at the premiere of Changeling. Last year, I got the lowdown directly from Angelina's makeup artist that Angie is a huge fan of Guerlain Terracotta Loose Kohl Powder in Deep Charcoal Black ($32). While this beloved shade is adored by many, the steep pricetag just might not fit the bill — or should I say your bills.
To achieve Angelina's sultry eye makeup on the cheap — using a cool new marker-esque liner that's now becoming a Bella favorite —
- Start by creating a base with a pale, shimmery eyeshadow, such as Maybelline Expertwear Single Eyeshadow in Linen Shimmer ($2.99).
- Next, apply my new favorite (and affordable) felt-tipped eyeliner — Physician's Formula Eye Definer Felt-Tip Eye Marker in Ultra Black ($6.95). To make for a smooth application, try one of these techniques: Either start lining your top lashes from the middle working to the outer corner of the eyes, then line from the inner corner back to the middle or create a series of dots or dashes as a guideline, then connect.
- To finish, use a black eye shadow on the lower lash line for a smoky eye, and then apply it over the liquid liner to create a smudgy, diffused look. I like NYX Shadow For Eyes in Black ($3.99).
