Mimic the Muse: Angelina Jolie

Dame Angelina Jolie (pretty amazing to write that!) is the Queen of the brown smokey eye. She knows how to make those gorgeous blue eyes pop and now you can too!

Mimic the Muse: Angelina Jolie

Wether you’ve got lips like Angelina (so jealous if so!) or you’re just working with what your mumma gave you, we can all rock a neutral smokey eye a la Angelina Jolie.

Not only do they suit every eye colour and shape, but they’re really not that hard to do once you know how! Here’s a few tips to mimic her sultry, stunning, signature look for yourself!

1. Skin Perfection

Mix a dab of brightening cream with your foundation to give your skin an all over radiance. I love Mac’s Strobe Cream mixed with Chanel’s Perfection Lumiere for this look. Not only does it leave your skin absolutely flawless (for hours!) but it just shines – and not in a I stuck my head in a bucket of KFC chicken wings kind of way.

Use a brightening concealer like By Terry’s or Rimmel’s Wake Me Up! under your eyes. If you’re unsure of how to best cover your under eye circles definitely follow our tips!

Angelina Jolie loves a good contour. A cream contour kit is going to be your best friend for this look. I adore the one by Tom Ford, Hourglass also makes a great one. Use a sponge (I like to use one end for the bronzer and the other for the highlighter) and suck in your cheeks like a fish face or extreme pout. Where your cheeks naturally go in and about half way across towards your ear apply the bronze colour using slanted upward strokes towards the middle of your ear. This will blend out the colour and naturally define those cheek bones.

Apply the lighter highlighter colour to the top of those cheekbones, your forehead (just in above the middle of your brows) and the ridge of your nose to boost that glam radiance.

    Hey Madeleine,

    I love Mimic the Muse, Angelina is one of my favourites too.. Oh to have those lips. I’ve studied them in many films trying to work out whether they are real.. looking back at photo’s of her when she was young, I think perhaps nature did bless her…

    What do you think?

    Great blog and website

    Angelina is my ultimate woman crush. I luff her. And now she’s a dame as well! What I want to know is, how did I not know about that NARS eye compact? If only it could make me resemble anything close to Angelina lol x
