Amal Clooney’s Copper Eye Is Holiday Party Gold: Here's the Exclusive How-To
The barrister's makeup artist breaks down her exact look
Amal Clooney gives us major #hairgoals, but for her night out (with her mom!) celebrating the opening of her go-to makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury’s flagship beauty boutique on Thursday, it wasn’t just her shiny, highlighted waves that had us swooning. The barrister complemented her metallic Lanvin dress with copper eyeshadow: And we’ve got the exclusive details on her beauty look, below.
While Tilbury was the beauty mastermind behind Clooney’s makeup for her September 2014 wedding to George Clooney, Clooney relied on makeup artist Sofia Bermudez, from the makeup guru’s glam team, to get party-ready.
To “perfect her complexion and give her a luminous glow,” Bermudez began by prepping Clooney’s skin with Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation in Shade 7 (which sadly doesn’t launch stateside until March 2016). The pro then moved on to “shape, lift and shade” Clooney’s bold arches with the brand’s three-in-one eyebrow pencil, Brow Lift in Cara D.
To create Clooney’s copper-hued smoky eye, Bermudez blended three shades in the Dolce Vita Luxury Palette eye shadow palette. First she covered the star’s lids with the “Smoke” shade (bottom right in the palette), then she layered the “Enhance” hue (top right in the palette), and finished by applying the “Pop” shade (bottom left in the palette) all over the lid, up to the brow bone, for a subtle hint of shimmer.
Then Bermudez applied Tilbury’s Rock ‘N’ Kohl in Barbarella Brown eyeliner on Clooney’s upper and lower lids, creating a “sexier, more rock ‘n’ roll vibe,” then she coated Clooney’s lashes with Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara.
Lastly, “to sculpt and highlight” Clooney’s cheekbones, Bermudez brushed on the Filmstar Bronze & Glow bronzer and highlighter palette, followed by Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blush in Ecstasy to give the apples of the star’s cheeks an added pop of color.
For the finishing touch, Bermudez swiped Matte Revolution in Bond Girl lipstick on Clooney’s lips for a subtle berry pop.

Clooney showed off the pretty makeup look at Tilbury’s vast, one-of-a-kind boutique, which opened in November. Located on James Street in London, the luxurious space offers a slew of services, including red carpet- and wedding-themed makeovers, personalized engraving and an art deco-inspired champagne bar.
“I’m so excited to launch my first Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Boudoir in the heart of London! It’s a beauty dream world for makeup die-hards and novices alike,” Tilbury said in a statement. “I’ve made it easy for everyone to shop and integrated videos and social channels into the store to create a one-of-a-kind experience. Everything has been carefully curated in my art-deco, rock ‘n’ roll-inspired store, from the vintage chandeliers to the champagne bar, vanity tables to the sumptuous bathroom.”
