How To: Scarlet Johansson Eye Look For D&G


I've seen this Scarlet Johansson ad for a few months now and when it appeared on the back of this month's ELLE, I knew I had to recreate it. This dramatic eye look goes perfectly with a fancy dress and a fun evening--think holiday parties. It would even look especially darling with a black cashmere turtleneck sweater, jeans, and leopard flats! Let's see how I did it:

TOOLS:
  • ELF Liquid Eyeliner ($1)
  • Wet N Wild eyeshadow palette in Sweet as Candy ($3)
  • L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara ($5)
EXTRAS:
  • ELF C Brush ($3)
  • Crease Brush ($1)
  • Eye Makeup & Q-Tips
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in French Fries ($4.49)
  • Eyelash curler
  • Plain or cherry chapstick
METHOD:
  1. This is optional, but for a longer-lasting color, apply the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil on the lid as a base. Be sure to rub in.
  2. Using the C brush (or finger), pat the pink shade from the Sweet as Candy palette all over the lid.
  3. With the crease brush, brush the pink shade just like eyeliner under the bottom lashes to smoke out the color.
  4. Pat a finger in the white shade and pat it on the lid right over the eyeball (in other words, the center of the lid).
  5. Using the crease brush, dip in the brown shade and sweep over the crease in a windshield wiper motion.
  6. Wipe off the crease brush and get a little of the white shade. Blow off the excess and sweep under the brows for a subtle highlight.
  7. Curl lashes and apply mascara
  8. My eyes are a bit rounder than Scarlet's, so I applied my liner from the inner corner to the outer corner and made my liner thicker--this is to make them appear a bit more almond-shaped, like hers. If your eyes are almond-shaped, start applying the liner from the where the iris begins. 
  9. Drag the liner to the end. To create the wing, pretend you're drawing up the meet the tip of your eyebrow. For more help, see my tutorial I did with gel liner and here is Lauren Conrad's liquid liner tutorial. Use Q-tips dipped in eye makeup remover to get stray marks or to start over. The more practice, the better and easier it gets. 
  10. Optional: fill in brows to make them thicker like Scarlet's. Also optional: for even more shine, rub some chapstick over lids. 

What eye looks are you going to wear this holiday season?
Have a great weekend! Be safe, behave, and be well. Love, Elle

  1. I am horrible at putting on makeup, and I can never be successful at lining the top of my eyelid. You did such a great job! I think I'll be lucky if I'm wearing some mascara during the holiday season. Sometimes, that's just how it goes!

  38. Scarlett looks amazing here and I love how perfectly you recreated her eye make up! I'm not as skillful when it comes to it and thus make use eye liner more modestly, but I guess I should give the look a try some time!

  50. Do you have any suggestions on getting it to stay? Maybe my eyes are just really watery, but it always ends up either worn off or totally smudged after a short period of time. Thanks!
