It’s almost been a week since the Balenciaga show at Paris Haute Couture Week, but ours minds keep wandering back to Emily Ratajkowski and that smokey eye.
Last week, Emily Ratajkowski attended the Balenciaga couture show where Kim Kardashian, Nicole Kidman, and Dua Lipa all walked the runway alongside veteran models, including Bella Hadid and Naomi Campbell. Following the show, Ratajkowski also attended a dinner hosted by the house at Paris’ iconic Hotel de la Marine. But beyond the big sunglasses, garbage bag black, and Denma’s much-celebrated collection, it’s Ratajkowski’s beauty look that’s still imprinted in our minds.
Celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta was responsible for creating Ratajkowski’s Balenciaga face. Ta paired a flawless base with blush, placed high on the cheekbone, an over-lined nude lip, and a smokey eye that’s bound to go down in beauty history books. On Instagram, Ta shared a list of the Patrick Ta Beauty products he used to create the Balenciaga dinner look.
Ta opted to keep things basic when it came to Ratajkowski’s brows, only applying a clear brow shaping wax. When it came to base he went with his own contouring product in the shade She’s Sculpted. While Ta sadly hasn’t yet posted a tutorial on this perfect smokey eye look, he did share that the look was created using black eyeliner, which he appears to have blended upwards and outwards to create the smokey eye – potentially with a touch of midnight blue shadow at the wing and a white shadow in the inner corners of the lid.
Ta was also kind enough to share a video of him creating the beauty look Ratajkowski wore to the Balenciaga show earlier that day, which involved the same brow wax and contour, along with two of Ta’s lip products: a lip crayon in the shade She’s Strong and a crème lipstick in She’s Independent.
