On 17 November 2014, Eva Longoria was selected as the honorary chair for the 5th annual Global Gift Gala in London. The star looked stunning for the occasion in a classic black gown. She pulled out all the stops in the makeup department and rocked a sultry smoky eye look. Perfect for those upcoming festive parties, this one is sure to have all eyes on you.
"Look at me" eyes
Nobody does intense, smoky eye makeup quite like Eva and the star pulled off yet another smoldering gaze for the event. It was a world away from the barely there beauty trend that has been taking the beauty world by storm recently but the dramatic effect was perfect for the red carpet.
Get the look
Get Eva's glow by dotting light-reflecting foundation over your T-zone and cheekbones and blending it in with a flat brush.
Take a black kohl eyeliner, and use it to outline your upper and lower lashlines. Blend with a clean applicator brush to recreate Eva's smouldering finish.
Take a black eyeshadow, and apply it along the upper lashline and the outer corners of your eyes.
Take a deep aubergine eyeshadow and apply it just above your lashline. Use a makeup applicator brush to add a grey shade just above, then apply two coats of volumizing mascara to recreate the star's XXL lashes.
Use a brow pencil to add definition to your brows and draw extra attention to your gorgeous gaze.
Smile! Then use a large brush and some blush powder to get a subtle rosy glow. Finish with with some pretty pink lip gloss and you're officially ready for the red carpet!
