How-To: Audrina's Smoky-Eyed Look

Audrina from The Hills is glamming things up with a sultry coal-rimmed eye, balanced out by pretty, fresh colors on her lips and cheeks. This makeup look never goes out of style, but it can be difficult to re-create at home without the proper technique. To help out, I've put together some tips to help you get the look.

To see the step-by-step guide for Audrina's makeup,


  • Face: To keep shine at bay and skin tone even under the bright lights, start by applying a primer to clean, moisturized skin. Try Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ($30). Finish off with a medium-coverage foundation with staying power, like this Max Factor Lasting Performance Stay-Put Makeup ($8) in True Beige, to keep skin looking smooth and even under the bright lights on the red carpet.
  • Cheeks: Audrina gets her California-girl glow by using a bronzer on her cheeks instead of the standard pink blush. Try sweeping Rimmel Natural Bronzer ($5) in Bronze Bronze across the apples of the cheeks and up towards the temples, then lightly across the forehead, nose, and chin. Voila, instant faux tan!
  • Eyes: The eyes are the focal point of Audrina's look. For this look, she used Bella Il Fiore products. Start by applying Roller Ball Eyeshadow ($11) in Don't Be Cruel to the upper lid, smudging it up past the crease, and stopping just below the brows. Get a precise, bold black line on your upper and lower lids by using Ooo La La Liner ($14) in Noir. Next, smudge a bit more of the Roller Ball Shadow underneath your lower lashes, all the way to the inner corner, keeping the line close to the lash as to avoid raccoon eyes. Finish off with a few coats of Private Eye Mascara ($14) on the upper lashes, and sweep the tip of the wand gently across the lower lashes for subtle definition.
  • Lips: Keep the lips simple and fresh to let the eyes do the talking. A matte pink lipstick like NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($24) in Sex Machine should do the trick. Pack an extra punch by topping it off with a shimmery pink gloss like this Sephora Brand Super Shimmer Lip Gloss ($10) in Apricot Souffle, or wear the gloss alone for a more casual look.

haha i agree with the eyes thing. I have never seen a pic of her looking into the cam or video or whatever. its kinda weird..anyway, i like the makeup here very much. I think it would look better with a darker lip color though.

She's pretty but her eyes always look so dead.

I try not to bash when I can, simply b/c I don't like appearing "jealous" but I think she has an odd look: her eyes always seem half-lidded, even on the show, and her teeth are random sizes as well as huge

I just had to reach forward and move my sandwich cause she looks like she could snatch it with those teeth any second now. I dont think she is pretty at all.

I agree with everyone's comments about her messed-up eyes. It's like they are shaped as though they are upside-down or something. I can't figure it out...but it gives me the creeps. Like...oh my God. (Feel the rain on your skin!)

She does have great eye makeup but why is she always looking up? Honestly, her eyes always look like she just got done smoking a pound of weed.

I used to use blush instead of bronzer but I think I was using too much...I now need to go find my bronzer and try it again.
i always like her eye makeup?

Can someone tell Audrina to please look at the camera when taking a pic! She's always looking above it or on the side....That's not sexy.
