How-To: Mary-Kate Olsen's Low-Key Glamour

How-To: Mary-Kate Olsen's Low-Key Glamour

Aww, Mary-Kate! I'm so happy to see how happy and healthy she looked at the Television Critics Association press conference for the new season of Weeds. And I think this pink lipstick makes the most of her features. To find out how to get MK's look, from eyes to nail polish,

  • FACE: After moisturizing skin, apply a small amount of a luminizing lotion (such as Smashbox Artificial Light) to cheeks and temples. If your skin is fantastic already, go on to the next step. The rest of us can use a tinted moisturizer or mineral makeup to create an evenly-complexioned look.
  • CHEEKS:Dot a small amount of a medium pink cream blush on the apples of cheeks. You want to put this over the area where you applied the luminizing lotion, which will add a glow to the color.
  • EYES:Even though you can't see Mary-Kate's eyelids, I'd wager that she's wearing a tawny shimmer eye shadow. With her eyelashes and eyeliner so bold, she needs to balance with more subdued colors. I like the new Stila Mandarin Mist palette, which you could use to gently sweep tones of brown across your lids. Follow by outlining the corner of your eye with a white pencil like Benefit's Mr. Frosty. Line eyes with a brownish-black eyeliner, starting narrow near your inner eye and getting thicker as you move toward the outer corner of your eye. Finish with a generous coat of black mascara such as Dior Diorshow Black Out mascara.
  • LIPS: Look for a light mauve lipstick with a creamy-to-matte finish. I like Nars' Velvet Matte lip pencil because it's easier to control than a traditional lipstick, and it goes on smoothly.
  • NAILS: Mary-Kate went with a bold orangey-red, but she was smart to keep her nails on the short side. I found this shade from OPI, Don't Socra-Tease Me. Great pun, great color.

looking at both mk and a's top and bottom lined eyes, i have a request! my eyes are deepset and close together. i feel like using eye shadow does nothing for me, and under lined eyes definitely isn't good. any tips bella??

she would look 100 times prettier if she showed some teeth. does she actually think that smile makes her look better? i can't stand it. also her posture could improve.

Something is weird. Her posture is hideous. I love the dress though. I hate the orange nailcolor it reminds me of nickelodean. I hate her hair but i love her makeup. my two cents ;)

realy don't like the Olsen twins prpbably because they always look unkempt and their style is "boho-chic" that is so unkempt. And to think, they are hailed as "fashion icons"...what?

I still don't get why anyone would want to look like her (or her sister for that matter.) :? If I put makeup on and then partied the night away, slept in said makeup and then got up the next morning, then I'd look like Ashley and MK normally look. Granted this is a step in the right direction, but still, something about them is most definitely off. :rant:

She really needs to stick to this toned-down look. Love it on her. Vampy is just not working for her.
