16 January 2013 by

It's officially Awards Season so what star better to pick to copy her red carpet beauty than Keira Knightley? Her trademark red carpet beauty look is bronzed eyes using blended creams and shadows. Her eyebrows are also the main feature of her look which you can achieve with a pencil and powder. Who better to show us how to copy her look than beauty blogger Tanya Burr?

Tanya has previously delved through her makeup bag to give us insight into Brigitte Bardot's 60s siren look, Taylor Swift's all-American style, Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh's party look, Katy Perry's sparkly eye makeup, Emma Stone's winged eyeliner, Audrey Hepburn's timeless look, the gorgeous Victoria's Secret models glowing cheeks and luscious lips, Lana Del Rey's modern 60's look and Olivia Palermo's natural rosy complexion, so we can't wait to find out how to achieve Keira Knightley's winning Awards Season look...

Hi guys, today I am going to give you a step by step guide to a Keira Knightley inspired make up look...

1. Keira always has really flawless and dewy porcelain skin - use a foundation that gives this appearance which can optimise coverage but still look natural.

2. Keira's brows are central to her look so define your brows with a pencil/powder. Don't worry about being too neat as Kiera's are beautifully and naturally sculpted and full.

3. For the eyes, Keira often sports deep shimmer bronze colours. To really bring out the colour, start by using a bronze cream shadow as a base and apply this all over the lid with your finger. Next press a bronze shadow into the lid using a flat brush to really pack it on, and then blend it in with a blending brush. Run this same colour underneath the eye as well. If you want to, you can take a deeper bronze shade and work this into the corners of the eyes and through the crease.

4. For extra definition, run a thin line of gel liner across the lid and on the waterline too. Top off the eyes with lots of mascara.

5. For the skin, because the eyes are the main feature you don't need to apply lots of product. Start by powdering the skin, then use a subtle peachy cream blush which goes really well with the drama of the eyes. Match the lips to the blush by using a peachy gloss or lipstick and you're done!
