From Halle Berry to Hilary Swank, Oscar leading ladies turn to Lebanese designer Elie Saab to get red-carpet ready. For fall ’13, Saab brought to the runway an androgynous tone that came in the form of masculine tailoring. To enhance this boyish narrative of the collection, a “broken smoky eye” was created by French makeup artist Tom Pecheux using M·A·C cosmetics.

The look: Sculpted eye shape, defined brow, matte skin and a nude lip help keep the Elie Saab woman looking fresh and modern at all times.

American model Mackenzie Drazan shows just how easy this beauty statement can go from runway to reality. It’s all about a defined brow and smoky eyes that can be worn day or night.

“I love walking for Elie Saab. This collection was beautiful and very red carpet,” said Russian model Katya Riabynikina as she exited the show with her smoky eyes still intact.
