Summer Beauty 2013:
Bare-faced Beauty: Everything You Need to Know
Lightened Up Smoke
At the Tribeca Film Festival, Kate Hudson's lilac shadow from the Almay Intense i-Color Shimmer-i Kit for Blue Eyes ($7; ulta.com) makes her eyes pop. Of course, dark smoky eyes are dramatic, but a smudgy, smoky look in a paler color looks just as gorgeous and far more natural. Pick a lighter version of your typical smoky eye color—pale blue instead of navy, lilac instead of eggplant, light gray instead of charcoal—and smudge, smudge, smudge liner and shadow all the way around top and bottom rims so the color doesn't have a sharp edge.
Evangeline Lilly swept onto the red carpet at The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug premiere in a black slightly sheer Alberta Ferretti gown with a lace overlay and tiers of tulle at the skirt, keeping all accessories to a minimum, save for studs and a gold bracelet.
