We Need To Talk About Shay Mitchell's Amazing Smokey Eye Look
Since her debut on the hit show Pretty Little Liars, Shay Mitchell has been rapidly transforming into Hollywood's newest style icon. Though she is known for her signature bronze smokey eye and killer shades, the beauty look that she wore to an event celebrating her latest collaboration with Smashbox proves that Mitchell is ready to set trends and totally take over the beauty scene.
Patrick Ta, celebrity makeup artist and global ambassador for La Mer, created the look with which gave off major summetime-glam vibes thanks to bold red lips, tons of highlight, and a cobalt and bronze smokey eye.
The combination of typical bronze tones on the eyes and smoked out cobalt blue on the lower lash line is a trend that isn't new to Hollywood, and Ta's recreation hints that this look will surely be everywhere this summer. It looked striking and subtle at the same time, especially when paired with intensely dark lashes and the golden highlight Ta used on Mitchell's cheekbones. The bright red lip, while sometimes overpowering with other smokey eye looks, perfectly complimented the blue-bronze and shattered the notion that red lips work best with subtle eye looks.
Though Ta didn't share on Instagram what exact products were used, it's safe to say that the eye look was a combination of the Cover Shot Eye Palettes in Bold and Golden Hour from Mitchell's collaboration (see below). This creative use of Smashbox's latest palettes is not only a total showstopper, but remarkably simple for even the most novice beauty lover to recreate. I look forward to creating my own version of this look for parties this summer, and can see it becoming my go-to look!
