How to get The Hills star’s sultry smoky eyes.

Audrina Patridge

For the recent premiere of Avatar, Audrina Patridge turned up the glam with smoky eyes, soft pink lips and a smooth, modern ponytail. Her makeup artist, Kelsey Deenihan from Exclusive Artists gave us the skinny on Audrina’s makeup – here’s what she used, and how to get the look — for less!

L’Oreal’s Super Blendable Makeup 1. Base
According to Deenihan, “Audrina’s face is naturally two shades lighter than her body – which is great because it means she’s protecting her skin and using her SPF.” To match Audrina’s facial skin tone to her body, Deenihan used NARS Sheer Matte Foundation in Syracuse. The amazing coverage is worth the $42, but if you’re a fellow SPF-lover and spend all your extra cash on sunscreen, try L’Oreal’s $6.99 Super Blendable Makeup instead. And if you, like Audrina, are using a base darker than your natural skin, don’t forget to blend! For a natural look, Deenihan says, “Bring the color all the way down the neck and be extra careful to blend it into the hairline.”

Smokey Eye Palette 2. Eye Shadow
Although “smoky” might sound like it means “grey,” to create the perfect smoky eye you practically need a rainbow. Deenihan used five different shades from NARS to achieve Audrina’s look. At $22 to $32 a shade, that can add up. Stila comes to the rescue with their Smokey Eye Palette — $40 gets you four perfectly coordinated shades and a makeup lesson! At the push of a button, the palette literally talks you through five simple steps to creating a smoky eye.

Decay’s 24/7 Pencil in Zero3. Eyeliner
Deenihan further defined Audrina’s eyes by lining the top and bottom lids with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Pencil in Zero. “This blackest black eyeliner,” says Deenihan “is waterproof for all-night, smudge-proof wear.” We found it at Sephora for only $17 – a small price to pay to not have to touch-up!

NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara4. Mascara
Audrina’s lashes were topped off with NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara, it goes for $25. To pump up your own lashes without deflating your budget, try Maybelline’s $6.99 The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara.

MAC Lipstick in Twig 5. Lipstick
For a pretty pout, Deenihan used MAC Lipstick in Twig – it’s a muted brownish pink that adds just the right amount of color, but doesn’t compete with the dramatic eyes. Pick up your own tube from MAC for just $14!

    I would love to win the package and feel just like a movie star. The make up artist has done an excellent job with the make up. If I can look as half as good as her i would think that I’m on the front page of a magazine. Keep up the good work US

    I love,love this look but can never do it right. I might have to get the Stila kit and try it out.

    I love so many of the products mentioned, but definitely pass on Colossal Volum! Its super smudgey and flakey. The original Lash Blast from Covergirl is a far better option for about a dollar less!
