Don't you just love Keira Knightley's dramatic smoky eyes at the London premiere of her new movie, Never Let Me Go (which, by the way, I can't WAIT to see)? I know I do! Here, her makeup artist, Chanel's Kate Lee, explains how she created the look.

"Keira is one of my favorite canvasses. She has a magnificent bone structure and beautiful features, so it's always hard to choose which one to play up! I went with eyes, as I thought a strong, elegant eye would look great with her new cut.
"To make it slightly more modern, I used only cream shadows, a mixture of Chanel Intense Eye Pencil in Noir inside the eye and along the bottom and top lash lines. I also crept it up onto the outer third of the socket to add depth. After lots of gentle blending, I added in Nars creme shadow from the Thebes Duo to the center of the lid and also to the brow bone to add a glow and create dimension.
"Finally, I curled the lashes, gave them a generous coat of Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, and then added a few clumps of Ardel lashes in a random pattern. The final effect was dramatic but modern. Her lips were Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Perle, and I sculpted her cheeks with Chanel Powder Blush in Imprevu."
