There are some beauty trends that look fantastic on the runway but rarely translate well to everyday life, such as blue lipstick and red eyeshadow. And while these looks are often attempted by stars who go for shock value, such as Ke$ha and Taylor Momsen, celebs with a more classic approach to beauty don’t usually step outside of the box – until now.
At the UK premiere of her latest film, Morning Glory, Rachel McAdams walked the red carpet looking gorgeous as always. She wore a knee-length printed dress and complemented it with soft, tousled hair and sheer lip gloss.
However, McAdams infused her look with a bit of the unexpected by sporting a touch of neon gold eyeshadow. The electric pigment was concentrated close to her lash line and didn’t extend past her crease. To make sure her lashes weren’t overpowered by the strong shade, she also wore a few coats of jet black mascara.
By using a bright color to enhance just one feature, McAdams kept controlled and refrained from looking like a clown. While we aren’t used to seeing such bold makeup on such a traditional beauty, it’s nice to see stars taking a risk on the red carpet.
