Allison Williams loves to emphasise her eyes

Allison Williams loves to emphasise her "beautiful blue eyes" with make-up, it has been revealed.

The look she sported at the premiere for Girls season two in New York this week has been explained by her make-up artist Julie Harris.

Julie revealed that the look was inspired by the embroidered Altuzarra bustier top and skirt Allison wore to the event.

“It’s black and gold, and she really loves to emphasise her beautiful blue eyes, so I used a metallic gold shadow (CARGO's colour palette in Baja) to really play them up,” Julie revealed to People.

To make Allison's pretty peepers stand out, Julie added black liquid liner and black lash mascara.

Julie explained how she boosted the high drama of Allison's eyes with a neutral shade on her mouth.

“We did a softer lip, [I used CARGO’s lip gloss in Fresno which Allison kept with her for touch-ups]," Julie continued. "I used some CARGO blush, bronzer and highlighter to give an added glow. It's a classic, yet sexy, look."

Allison didn't have much input into her look for the high-profile event. The star's make-up artist admitted Allison didn't say a word as she got to work on her.

“I just told her what I was going to do, and she let me do it,” Julie laughed. "[And thankfully] she said she loved it.”

Julie finished by sharing how Allison's make-up has changed since she first started working with her last year. The beauty expert revealed Allison has started to be more experimental with her appearance over the past few months and is looking at different inspirations.

“When she started with the show, I think she was very much wanting to have a Ralph Lauren feeling to her look,” Julie finished. “But we’ve pushed it — I think I’ve shown her different ideas she can try, different ways to do them. It’s worked out really well so far.”
