Get Keira Knightley's smoky eyes

How to recreate Keira Knightley's Jack Ryan premiere smoky eye make-up.

The British actress looked stunning on the red carpet alongside her co-star Chris Pine for the LA debut of crime thriller Jack Ryan on Wednesday night.

The smoky eye and dewy skin look was down to Chanel celebrity make-up artist Kate Lee, who matched Keira's eyes to her ankle-length navy Chanel dress.

"I wanted to keep her looking more of the moment, and so we went for a navy creamy smudged eye," Kate explained to People.

"On the eye I started out by lining the inside of the eye, upper and lower lash line with Chanel Le Crayon Khôl Intense Eye Pencil in Marine then worked along the lash line above and below them gently blended the lines.

"Next, I reached for Chanel Limited Edition Illusion D'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye shadow in Apparition, which is a beautiful shimmering navy to melt away the lines and give a soft effect."

As for the lashes Kate went for a black mascara, which required just one coat.

With such a heavy eye, Kate opted for natural lip so the overall make-up wasn't over the top.

Keira is a brand ambassador for Chanel, and cites the French Fashion House as her all-time favourite brand.

"There was a purpley, blacky, Chanel dress that I wore to the Atonement premiere in Toronto Film Festival, don't know what the year was, but it's my all-time favourite dress," Keira confessed to People.
