Beauty Cues: Keira Knightley’s Chic Cat Eye

Generally Acknowledged Life Truth: Keira Knightley is so beautiful it’s stupid. We’ve been loving all of her “Anna Karenina” premiere looks, but we think this one, with its sleek, perfect cat eye and pink lipstick, has taken the cake so far. Find out what you need to channel Keira’s romantic flair, after the jump…

  • Tarte EmphasEYES Waterproof Clay Shadow/Liner in Brown: Use the thin liner end of the included brush to draw a line across the lid starting with the inner corner, starting out thinly and thickening the line as you move towards the outer edge. Fill in as close to the lashline as possible to eliminate the appearance of any gaps between the lashes and the lid. If you’re experienced with lining your waterline, do so by lifting up the lid gently and carefully coating the exposed area with liner.
  • Hourglass Script Precision Liquid Liner in Jett: This incredibly fine-pointed liquid pen is the ideal tool for creating a perfect cat eye, as you can quite literally draw it on without the worry of applying too much. Begin by tracing over the clay liner closest to the lashline. At the very outer edge of the eye, create a tiny, slightly upward-angled triangle shape (don’t worry about filling it in just yet), extending its outward point with a fine, swooping line that reaches toward the end of the brow. Then you can fill in the triangle and finish by correcting any stray lines with a tapered q-tip.
  • Bite High Pigment Matte Pencil in Velvet: Not nearly as matte as the name would lead you to believe, this creamy, moisturizing formula is easy to apply thanks to the handy pencil packaging, and the soft rose shade adds a very pretty, slightly unexpected bit of color. Begin by filling in the center of the lips, then move outwards to shape and line.
