We are so proud of Dianna Agron… She finally decided to go a little sex kitten with her look. It's about time! She's a beautiful woman and frankly we were frustrated with her conservative updos and makeup.
She must have heard our cry when she got ready for the German premiere of her new movie "The Family." Her eye makeup is simply to die for – the silvery smoky eye shadow made her hazel eyes glow. And, the subtle contouring of her cheeks gave her ivory complexion just a hint of sun-kiss without looking harsh or fake.
We're obviously all about Dianna letting down her hair in loose Farrah waves. It's more like Farrah waves after a little loving in the afternoon… Even better!
Get the Look: Starting with the eye makeup, prime the entire upper eye area with either an eye primer or concealer. Then, apply a cream or flesh-colored powder eye shadow to entire upper eye area.
Next, you are going to want to contour your creases with a matte warm taupe eye shadow like Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Taupe in a back and forth windshield wiper motion. When you get to the outer corners of your creases, make a V-shape with the outer corners of your eyes. Blend like crazy. Then, take an eyeliner brush and dip it into the eye shadow and line the outer half of your lower lash line with the taupe.
Now, use a cream or creamy powder eye shadow (a basic powder eye shadow will leave you a big glittered mess) in sparkly metallic silver like LANCÔME Color Design Infinité in 601 Unlimited Silver. Apply the eye shadow with your finger or a flat eye brush to your lids. Take a small eye brush and blend the silver into the creases (over the taupe).
Then, dip the eyeliner brush in the silver eye shadow and line your entire lower lash line. Blend it with the taupe. Dip the brush again in the silver and make a V-shape in the inner corners of your eyes (this will really make your eyes sparkle).
To copy Dianna's subtle contoured cheeks, use an angled blush / contouring brush like MAKE UP FOR EVER 150 Precision Blush Brush dipped in a matte bronzer like Smashbox Bronze Lights in Sunkissed Matte.
The key here is to choose a bronzer that is only a couple shades darker than your natural color. We all know what happens when you use too dark of a bronzer – Oompa Loompa drag queen territory. No bueno.
Suck in your cheeks and apply the bronzer underneath your cheekbones up to your temples and then down along your jaw line. Then, take what's left on the brush and swipe along your hairline.
Blend using small circles to ensure no lines are visible. Complete this look by applying a nude lip gloss that has a tiny bit of sparkle like NARS Lip Gloss in Belize.
We're hoping this sultry look is just the beginning for Dianna. Goodbye grandma ‘dos and hello sex kitten. We're expecting big sexy hair and black winged eyes at the next premiere. Fine, fine… baby steps.
