We love a great smoky eye, and the soft, steely version Jennifer Lawrence wore at the Silver Linings Playbook screening in New York City definitely grabbed our attention! Lawrence’s makeup artist, Jillian Dempsey, drew inspiration from the star’s crisp black Christian Dior Spring 2013 pantsuit, and used Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick Eye Color in Steel ($24; lauramercier.com) on the actress’s upper and lower lash lines. Dempsey blended out the cream base to create a smoky effect and added Sateen Eye Color in Sable ($22; lauramercier.com) to areas she wanted to highlight. A swipe of the Kohl Pencil in Black Violet ($20; lauramercier.com) along Lawrence’s lash line provided extra definition, and a generous application of mascara finished the smoldering look. We’re so going to take a page from Jennifer’s smoky eye playbook!
