Emily Ratajkowski’s Red Eyes Are Lit!

By Polly Blitzer / January 9, 2018

At the risk of sounding old school, do you guys remember when red eye was a thing to be avoided? That demonic glare beaming from people's eyes in photos. Back when we used cameras with flashes and had to wait for film to be developed. I spent so much money on "next-day" rush fees. (Imagine waiting 24 hours to see a selfie. And another day if that one sucked. The horror.) There were tricks to avoid red eye, like closing your eyes before saying Cheese! But how many of you still look like fiery-eyed Satin in family albums? Red eye is making a fetching comeback. And there are tricks for getting it, rather than avoiding it.

At the Golden Globes this weekend, Emily Ratajkowski wore a graphic smoky eye look, created by makeup artist Hung Vanngo. “We had some fun with the eye makeup,” said Hung, a Marc Jacobs Beauty Global Artistry Ambassador. He started by lining Emily's waterlines and lash lines with Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Fine Wine 47, a suede red shade. He extended the line past the outer corner of her eyes. Hung then used Marc Jacobs Beauty The Smudge Brush to blur the lines a bit. Next, he mixed two shades from the Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Scandalust: “They Call Her” and “Scandalous” and dusted them in her creases and lower lash lines, extending outward and upward. That shade combo gave Emily's eyes a rich rusty glow. He blended the edges using “That’s Why,” a shade from the same palette. To finish the look, Hung applied two coats of Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara to Emily’s top and bottom lashes.
And if you're digging these nude lips as much as I am, here's the shade: Marc Jacobs Beauty New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick in Eat Cake 150.  I love the shade name. It's too good to eat.
