Lancôme make-up artist Alex Babsky has let fans in on Elizabeth Olsen’s beauty tips.

The actress looked stunning at the event earlier this week, sporting a smokey eye, dewy skin and glossy lips.

Teamed with a floral Christopher Kane skirt and edgy Rag & Bone boots Elizabeth oozed her usual brand of effortless cool.

The 23-year-old was styled by Lancôme make-up artist Alex Babsky, who has revealed how he achieved her winning look.

The young star sported a glowing complexion, which was thanks to clever foundation and a spot of highlighter.

“After prepping Lizzie's skin with Lancôme Hydra Zen Neurocalm Extrême, I applied the tiniest amount of Teint Idole Ultra foundation in shade 007 just to the areas Lizzie needed it - around the nose and a little on the chin,” he explained to Elle.

“I then added some lightness around the eyes with illuminating concealer - Teint Miracle pen in 02 before setting everything with loose powder.”

The highlight of Elizabeth’s look was her smokey eye make-up.

The star also sported long lashes, which opened up her eyes and drew attention to her perfectly groomed brows.

“I lined Lizzie's lower waterline with Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl in black and ran a thick band of it along her upper lashline, which I smudged out,” Alex revealed.

“Using a soft, fluffy brush, I applied a halo of shimmery pewter from the Hypnôse Palette in shade DR2 [launching April this year] all the way around Lizzie's eyes and applied a couple of coats of Hypnôse Doll Eyes mascara.”

Finally, the look was rounded off thanks to glossy lips.

The star stuck to one of the most important beauty rules and chose to emphasise her eyes but keep her lips simple.

“We skipped lip liner in favour of just a sheer wash of L'Absolu Nu in 302 on the lips,” the make-up mogul explained.
