While it seems like everyone in Hollywood is a already pro at perfecting smoky eye makeup, some stars still actually still consider themselves newbies at the sultry style.

Olivia Munn and Ashley Madekwe are just two of those stars — or rather, were – until last weekend, when they both highlighted their gorgeous eyes with shades of charcoal (something both actresses described as a rare venture) at the Lanvin and Living Beauty Host an Evening of Fashion event in Beverly Hills on Saturday.

Revenge star Madekwe explained that she had her look done at an earlier photo shoot.

“I showed them the dress I was wearing tonight and they did my makeup and hair—very sweet,” she said.”I never do a smoky eye. Lauren [the makeup artist] attacked me with the eye shadow, and I went with it.”

Munn had her hair and makeup done by her team but hardly had the chance to check herself out prior to the fashion fundraiser.

“I don’t normally do a really smoky eye. I got ready so quick and ran out the door, I haven’t really seen it. But I normally don’t like anything that’s different,” the Newsroom actress said. “I trust my makeup and hair guys to do what they want to do.” Looks like both stars will be joining the growing list of seasoned smokey eye veterans in no time.
