Mary-Kate And Ashley Olsen Beauty Looks

Friday, June 13, 2014

If you're a 90's girl, you pretty much grew up with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Growing up in those golden years, my friends and I idolized these two blondes, loving everything from their perfectly tousled waves to overly glossed lips. We all rushed to each other’s homes to watch their latest straight-to-video movies and never missed a single episode of their shows. It’s safe to say that the Olsen sister’s were a major source of beauty and style inspiration.


Looking back now, the looks we once loved are clearly very dated. However, as the girls (and their devoted fans!) matured, their beauty routine appropriately followed. As an adult, I find myself looking to this stylish duo for beauty inspiration once again. Their signature wide, bright eyes are often smoked with earthy brown shades with copper and gold under tones. As a major fan of brown and neutral shadows, it is no surprise that their effortless and “undone” smoky looks draw me in time and time again.

In honor of their 28th birthday, I thought it was only appropriate to round up some of my favorite brown and taupe-y eye shadows that very Olsen-worthy.

Charlotte Tilbury – The Dolce Vita Palette
The Queen of the undone and simple smoky eye, celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has finally launched her dreamy cosmetic collection in the US. While she amazingly knocked it out of the park across the board, it is her Dolce Vita Palette that is truly extraordinary. Featuring four shades, this universal palette is ultra-flattering and mistake proof. The colors offered in this palette can take eyes from dull to mesmeric. Much like those worn by the Olsen’s, the Dolce Vita palette can help you create a seductive layered or a dimensional smoked and smudged look.

NARS Eye Shadow – California & Fez
If you’re more a simple shadow girl, I’ll have to suggest reaching for a NARS shadows. Consisting of softly blended formulas, NARS expertly created a smooth shadow that glides onto lids. California features more coppery under tones whereas Fez is a soft brown with a subtle gold iridescence blended throughout. Both of these colors look lovely on the lid and blended along the lower lash line. For a more dramatic look, apply a chocolate liner along the waterline and smudge along the upper lash line.

Tom Ford – Golden Minx

This luxurious palette is must-have for any brown shadow lover. Featuring lovely neutral shades in matte, satin and shimmered finishes, this quad has got something for every smoky eye enthusiast. A favorite on the Tom Ford runway, this collection of shades also happens to be the perfect shades you need to create that layered Olsen eye look. Best of all, these creamy shades can easily be layered without looking excessive.
