When it comes to inspiration for breaking out of a makeup rut, we can always count on Elle Fanning to deliver a look that we'll be dying to try. Case in point: the actress's metallic eye makeup she wore to the premiere of her new film The Beguiled in L.A. last night.

Fanning coordinated her makeup to her silver sequined Naeem Khan dress by sweeping a matching shimmery eyeshadow all over her lids, and gave her lashes a few coats of mascara. To try your hand at Fanning's makeup, L'Oréal Paris's Infallible Paints Metallic Eyeshadow Paints in Aluminum Foil ($9; ulta.com) has a similar finish. A peachy-pink lip and blush completed the easy, but stand out look.

Considering Fanning's makeup track record and the fact that she was recently named L'Oréal Paris's newest ambassador, we're expecting all of our summer makeup looks we want to try to come straight from her red carpet beauty moments this season. 5 Eyeshadows to Try if You're Scared of Wearing Eyeshadow

After years of being off eyeshadow, Charlotte Tilbury's cream formula was my gateway back in. The formula blends like a dream, and there's no fallout down onto the unde eye area. "Jean" is the perfect shimmery champagne shade that adds a hint of color on the lid and makes eyes appear brighter. Whenever I've had a late night or early morning, it's become my foolproof trick to looking awake. Courtesy

The thought of wearing a dark smoky eye probably seems scarier than binge-watching the entire Stephen King film library, but the pink, peach, and purple shades in this palette are perfect for taking a softer approach to the look. Courtesy

Get your hands on a shadow pot that can do both. Sweep Burberry's shadow across the lid for a sheer wash of color, or apply it with a wet brush for an intensified finish. While this moss green shade may look intimidating, it's actually a flattering pick for a number of eye colors, especially if you have hazel or brown eyes. Courtesy

When it doubt, reach for nudes. Mix and match any of the neutral shades in NYX's palette, or wear one alone if you don't want to get too crazy. Courtesy

There's never been a better reason to take your rosé obsession to the next level. With a rose gold eyeshadow, you can literally rosé all day. The shimmering metallic shadow is not quite gold and not quite silver, which is what makes it a flattering, easy to wear pick for a number of skin tones. Its middle ground status also keeps the shade from being too bold to wear for day, or if you're new to wearing eyeshadow. Courtesy 1 of 5 Advertisement
