Michelle Monaghan's premiere make-up

How to get Michelle Monaghan's make-up from the Pixels premiere.

Michelle stars alongside Adam Sandler and Peter Dinklage in the movie, which tells the story of aliens attacking Earth with giant video game graphics.

The actress went for an edgy look on the red carpet, wearing a white collared Erdem top, a ruffled leather skirt, Stuart Weitzman shoes and a black Valentino clutch. Her make-up, courtesy of Shane Paish, complemented the look.

"The overall look we were going with for Michelle’s make-up was chic, sporty and cool," Shane told The Hollywood Reporter.

"[I left her face nude] for the heat wave here in the city, to give the skin a perfect look for summer."

Michelle's hair was slightly curled, and worn to one side for added elegance.

Shane, who counts Olivia Munn and Liberty Ross as clients, went big on eyeliner for Michelle's make-up.

"The eye is smudged with a black lid that I created using the new Diorshow Pro Liner and lined halfway under the lid to give it more of an edge, and play with the shape of the eye," he explained.

He added a V shape too, making Michelle's eyes look more open, longer and feline.

The 39-year-old actress recently spoke about how she maintains her youthful complexion, crediting a healthy lifestyle for her glow.

My skincare routine is more about working from the inside out rather than putting a lot of products on my skin. I like simplicity," she told
