Smoky eyes in Summer? Jourdan Dunn say's yes!

Jourdan Dunn Reinvents Smoky Eyes For Summer

Last night we saw ALL our favourite supermodels take to the red carpet for amfAR’s 22nd Cinema Against Aids Gala in Cannes, France. But within that whole bevy of beauties, one lady stood out thanks to her flawless make-up. Yep, round of applause for Jourdan Dunn, you’ve scored 10/10 for this look. 

Oooh we're drooling over Jourdan's dreamy grey-blue gown Oooh we’re drooling over Jourdan’s dreamy grey-blue gown

To offset her dreamy floor-length blue-grey gown with it’s structured waist and flared fishtail hem, Jourdan kept her hair classic and cool, with just a sleek blow-dry. But what really got our beauty brains in a whirl was her light-washed smoky eyes. With just a touch of pale grey eyeshadow, a little black eyeliner along the waterline and a lick of mascara, her make-up looked sultry yet Summery. It may seem simple, but smoky eyes look great on pretty much everyone and it’s one of our all-time favourite looks to rock. But come Summer, loading up our eyes with heavy-metal eye make-up has always felt a little wrong and instead pastel hues and golden bronzes lead the way in. But Jourdan has officially proved smoky eyes can still totally work for Summer, simply switch up your matte black shadows for a light, pearly grey and you’ll be good to go. 

To cheat the look we love MAC’s Eyeshadow in Electra, £13, blended over lids. Then Maybelline’s Master Drama Kohl, £4.50, traced over the lashline to give a shot of definition. Finally, finish with lashing of Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Mascara in Very Black, £7.99, for a gorgeous fluttery finish.
