Dakota Fanning keeps it simple and pretty with bold black liner. Her makeup artist tells you how you can too!
- For Dakota’s liner, Sammy has a great trick for the liquid novices. “To achieve a perfect liner with so much precision and depth, I start by drawing a smaller line with deep black matte powder at the very base of her eye lashes,” Sammy says. “Then, with a cream eye liner I draw the liner on top of the back powder. This makes the liner deep black with a matte effect.”
- “I use an heavy black mascara only on top lashes,” Sammy says. For added drama, “I’ve used a few single lashes only to accentuate depth in the outer corner of her eyes. Those help to direct the light a certain way,” Sammy says. To not mess up the liner look, Sammy recommends using black lash glue.
- For a dewy effect, Sammy moisturized Dakota’s skin well and applied a subtle cream blush to cheeks.
- Sammy kept Dakota’s lips natural. “Neutral lips create more contrast between pearly skin black liner,” he says. - Marta Topran
