Carey Mulligan, the Drive actress who will soon be making a splash with her work in The Great Gatsby, showed up at the Met Ball wearing daring makeup and an edgy hairstyle that totally worked together. According to Glamour Magazine's beauty blog, the French twist and smoky eyes perfectly complemented her sparkling gold dress.
With a gravity-defying swoop in the front of her 'do, Carey's hair provided the perfect backdrop for her gorgeous facial features. Sticking with a light mauve lipstick and peachy-pink blush, she chose to focus all the attention on her eyes, using smoky eyeshadow, liquid eyeliner and tube mascara to accentuate them.
Carey kept her upper lash lines the main attractions, skipping makeup on the lower lash line altogether. She used a thick line of liquid eyeliner to rim the upper lashes, then followed with a generous sweep of eyeshadow that perfectly blended up to her creases. A few generous coats of tube mascara was probably responsible for her voluminous fringe, while a bit of eyebrow mousse likely kept her brows looking pristine. Nice work, Carey!
