Keira Knightly's Premier Make-up

You know when you see makeup so pretty that you can't stop thinking about since you saw it? Well, that is exactly what happened to me when I saw Keira Knightley's eye makeup from the premiere of Can a Song Save Your Life? during the Toronto International Film Festival. 

So before we hit the details about the make-up I’ll give you a little heads up about the movie: Can a Song Save Your Life? is an upcoming musical romance-drama film written and directed by John Carney, and starring Keira Knightley, Adam Levine, and Mark Ruffalo. And the basic plot: Gretta's (Keira Knightley) celebrity boyfriend (Adam Levine) breaks up with her after a long-term relationship, leaving the singer to find success on her own. With the help of record producer Dan (Mark Ruffalo) and hip-hop celebrity Trouble Gum (Cee Lo Green), will Gretta's musical ambitions be fulfilled?

Ok, my first question was: Can Keira actually sing and apparently the answer is yes and she sings well! Who knew?

Anyway, back to the make-up…..

While the outer corners of Keira's eyes are rimmed in a sexy V of metallic purple eyeshadow, there's just a whisper—a sheer veil—of purple underneath her lower lash line, which lends the look a dreamy subtleness. Her brows and lips are kept very natural, which offsets the statement color of the eyes.

I love this look which will suit my green eyes.  I’m trying this out tomorrow and I have the perfect product – Smokey I Kit For Green Eyes from Almay;s intense i-Color Shadow Trio range.  I will need to get a brighter metallic purple for the top lid  but this could also make it easier to wear ( the duller purple ) on a work day.


What are your thoughts?  I know it isn’t everyone’s taste but I love it!
