Chanel makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua uses a dab and smudge approach to make Zoë Kravitz’s eyeshadow glow.

Chanel makeup artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua made Zoë Kravitz’s eyeshadow match her jewellery by creating an “ethereal” effect with silver eyeshadow.

Mad Max: Fury Road actress Zoë has been stunning in white on the red carpet of late, donning a Calvin Klein ensemble of this hue to the InStyle Awards in Los Angeles this week (ends30Oct15) and also opting to wear the same designer at the Elle’s Women in Hollywood Awards.

The stunning 26-year-old donned mismatched metal jewellery to complete her looks and makeup artist Kara ensured her eyes popped by using Chanel's Quadra Eyeshadow in Tissé Gabrielle.

"[The silver eye] was ethereal and picked up the texture of Zoë's dress," Kara told Refinery29. “I dabbed it back and forth on the back of my hand before 'painting' it on. This creates a more watery effect."

Zoë has previously spoken about opting for loose clothes over really tight numbers.

She isn’t convinced figure-hugging outfits actually accentuate the body.

“I wear a lot of loose-fitting clothes,” she told Britain’s InStyle magazine. “It’s sexier to wear something loose and sheer than something very tight. I think people are too concerned with things like being able to see the shade of your nipple under your shirt. It’s interesting that that’s considered to be racy, but if you have a push-up bra on with your breasts up to your chin, that’s OK.”

Zoë is the daughter of legendary rock singer Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet. Her parents both have their own sense of style and have encouraged their daughter not to take fashion too seriously.

“I think clothes are a way to express yourself,” she told Britain’s InStyle magazine. “I have a gold tooth that I wear; it makes me laugh and I think it looks cool because it’s just so bizarre. It’s almost funny, it’s almost too far – like an inside joke with yourself. That’s what makes fashion fun for me.”
