Found It! Eva Longoria's Graphic Eyeliner
Eva Longoria brought the drama to the Cannes premiere of Le Passe by complementing her elegant Zuhair Murad number with an equally elegant cat eye. To create the look, Longoria's makeup artist contoured her eyes using L'Oreal's Colour Riche Quad in Army Brat ($8; lorealparisusa.com) and finished with a thick sweep of L'Oreal's Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in black ($9; lorealparisusa.com). Getting the precise shape can be tricky, so we recommend looking down into your mirror as you apply the product. This helps you get the color as close to your lashes as possible, eliminating the risk of any telltale eyeliner gaps. Finally, use an angled cotton swab to bring the winged-out edges to a point.

• Next, use a pointed cotton swab to drag and taper the liner to a point just past the corner of your eye.

Solution: Contact lens wearers or people with fair skin like Emma Stone often have sensitivities. Before you apply any makeup, flush out your eyes with a saline solution to hydrate your pupils. We like the original Visine ($8; drugstore.com). Then pat them down with a tissue and wait a few minutes. This should eliminate dryness and irritation for the rest of the night.
