The makeup secrets of Gwyneth Paltrow have been revealed by a magazine.
Look suggested how to recreate the "seductive eyes" sported by the actress recently as she attended a party in New York.
The magazine told readers to use midnight blue kohl to line the eyes instead of black and to use a cotton bud to smudge the liner a little.
Dark purple eyeshadow should then be used on the lower lids and ordinary black mascara applied to the lashes.
"Remember, the key to this look is flawless blending," the magazine stated.
Purple eyeshadow was recently described as "the new smoky eye" by a makeup artist.
Speaking to the Des Moines Register, Lindsay Donald said that plum eyeshadow is a good autumnal style.
Her technique is to use a darker purple on the lower lash rim and the eyelids, with a complementary tone in the eye"s crease and a pinker colour underneath.
