Nicole Richie: MAC Liquid Liner ($16.50) in Boot Black, MAC Eye Shadow ($14.50) in Carbon, MAC 266 Small Angle Brush ($19.50), Shu Uemura Mini Eyelash Curler ($17), Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($5) in Very Black.
We'll close today's Celebrity Picks story with a liner lesson from the queen of cat-eyes herself: the one and only Nicole Richie. When it comes to artfully executed eyeliner, Richie's simply the best, and, as you'd expect from an expert, she has a detailed list of products and a step-by-step process, which she kindly disclosed for our readers' edification. She starts by applying MAC Liquid Eye Liner ($16.50) in Boot Black along her lash line. Then, after the liner dries, she then emphasizes her handiwork, using a small slanted brush and black eye shadow, specifically MAC's 266 Small Angle Brush ($19.50) and Eye Shadow ($14.50) in Carbon. Next, Richie curls her lashes with shu uemura's Mini Eyelash Curler ($17). She recommends heating the tool with a quick shot of hot air from a hair dryer first, as this will ensure your lashes stay curled. The final touch is a few coats of Maybelline Great Lash Mascara ($5) in Very Black and voila! Perfection, the Richie way.
