Skip the look: Elizabeth Mitchell

Usually we blog about how to steal the look of the celebs. Today, we want to tell readers, "Don't steal this look!" Here, Lost star Elizabeth Mitchell's makeup has gone way wrong. Don't make the same mistakes!

Skip the look: Elizabeth Mitchell

Yes, the smokey eye look is very popular, but here Elizabeth's eye makeup is just "too much." She wears way too much liner and the colors she uses are too dark for her complexion. You need to consider your skintone when selecting makeup colors.

If you want to see how to do the smokey eye look properly - even for a fair skin, check out this video from makeup artist Amy B.


The results are sexy, smokey, retro and very beautiful.
