Rachel Bilson Hart of Dixie Makeup

Behind-the-Scenes Beauty: Rachel Bilson's Hart of Dixie Smoky Eye

On Hart of Dixie, Rachel Bilson plays a small-town doctor with big-city style. So to play up the dichotomy of her character, makeup artist Joni Powell creates a bronze smoky eye that can work for every day, but still has an uptown punch.

To get Rachel's signature smoky eye from the show, Powell applies the shimmery coppery shadow from the Cargo Bronze Essential Eye Palette in Bronze ($34) over the entire eye using sweeping strokes from the inner corner outward. Then, she takes the pale highlighting shade and places it underneath the arch of Rachel's brows. With an angled brush, she next sweeps the dark, espresso-colored hue onto the top and bottom lash lines. Powell then creates a triangle shape by extending the line to the outer corners, blending it to diffuse. Rachel's look is completed with a pale pink lip gloss to complement the earthy eye makeup.
