You can pay thousands for Scarlett Johansson’s cleavage or pennies in comparison for her face. This ad pretty much sells both. While guys may say the former is priceless, studies show they’ll get a whole lot further with us ladies if they’d keep their head up (the one with a brain) and their focus on our eyes. Seduction starts with the eyes. According to an article in Psychology Today, eye contact increases sexual attraction. “The gaze is probably the most striking human courting ploy. Men and women often stare intently at potential mates for about two to three seconds during which their pupils may dilate—a sign of extreme interest. Eye contact seems to have an immediate effect. The gaze triggers a primitive part of the human brain, calling forth one of two basic emotions—approach or retreat. You cannot ignore the eyes of another fixed on you; you must respond.”How fitting that Dolce&Gabbana, a design house famous for its curve-hugging dresses, has just introduced their own makeup collection with stunning shades, especially for the eyes. So, to get him looking in the right direction, try recreating Scarlett’s come hither eye look. Celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath used a combination of golds, rusts and chocolates found in the DG Smooth Eye Colour Quads in Mediterraneo and Stromboli (pictured above). She blended the shadows in the creases and along the upper and lower lashes and completed the smoky effect by applying eyeliner in Stromboli and black mascara. To balance the face she used the Classic Cream Lipstick in nude, a flattering tone that leaves a subtle sheen. The DG line, available now on saks.com, includes everything from foundation to bronzer to nail polish–and each product is packaged in an eye-catching, elegant gold case.
