When Kiernan Shipka steps out on the red carpet, we take notes. At only 15, the actress’s sartorial choices are fun, fresh and wise beyond her years — and the same can be said for her makeup moments. Enter this minimal beauty look — a slightly winged eyeliner and barely there pink lip — the starlet sported at the Teen Vogue x Simon #BTSS event Wednesday. We loved it so much, we reached out to her glam squad for the breakdown.
Shipka’s go-to makeup pro, Lauren Gott, played up the star’s gorgeous hazel eyes with a winged-tipped liner, courtesy of Yves Saint Laurent Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils Shocking in Black. She added a nude glossy lip thanks to Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Enchanted. (And, of course, the star’s perfect complexion and soft rosy cheeks helped complete the look.)
“This cat eye is always classic, professional and clean,” says Gott, who perfected the winged-liner look by drawing a very thin line with the eyes closed, but created the flick with the eyes open. “That is the trick because everyone’s eye shape is different, and often the eye crease is all the way to the outer edge of the eye.”
(Pro tip: To create the perfect flick length, Gott says the liner placement should be a “direct line from the lower lash line to the tip of the nose.”)
We’re obsessed with this look because it’s simple enough to wear to your 9-to-5 (or to class, if you’re still in high school like the star!), but leaves room to upgrade with a bold lip if you’re heading out after work.
