Switch Up Your Smoky Eye with Ashley Benson’s Spring Look

Who: Ashley Benson

Where: The Los Angeles premiere of Spring Breakers

Why we like it: It's often hard to find a look that's dramatic enough for evening but still appropriate for spring. Brown shaded eyes often look matronly but paired with a soft pink lip, this is a perfect look for a spring date. 

How to get it at home: Start with a fresh and dewy looking base, such as Dior's Diorskin Nude BB Creme, $44, and blend it well into the skin using your fingers. Try to keep the skin as natural as possible when you're wearing a heavy eye. Lightly groom and line your brows using Benefit's Instant Brow Pencil, $20. Quick brow tip: brush through your brows before you pencil them in to remove any foundation or moisturizer that may have settled on them.

The key to a shaded eye that doesn't look one dimensional is using different shades of the same color. The Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow in Rosy Tan 754, $60, is a great place to start. Use the pearl color as a brow highlighter and define the eye using the chocolate brown and taupe shades. Line the upper and lower waterline using a gel liner, such as Smashbox's Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner, $22, and smudge it into the lash line for added depth. Finish your eyes with a few coats of your favorite mascara.

To get Ashley's warm flush, try Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Calypso Coral, $25 and finish your look with Urban Decay's Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Flushed, $19
