Halle Berry's makeup artist has a secret to the actress' ultraglamorous beauty look, and it's all about the right mix. For the premiere of Halle's new film Cloud Atlas, makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua reached for two different brands of makeup: Chanel and Revlon. Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara ($34, available November 2012) drew attention to Halle's eyes, which were further emphasized by Revlon ColorStay Eye Shadow in Siren ($7). "I created an eye look with blended charcoals and shimmery silvers to complement the silver colors in [her] dress," Bua said. This updated take on the smoky eye is simple and seductive, and it's the perfect way to mix and match your products.
