Emma Watson's Bottega Veneta dress donned at last night's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 premiere was phenomenal, but what pulled together her entire look was not the exquisite cut and folds of the skirt, but her super-sleek, razor-blade-sharp beauty routine. Verging on the stark, Emma ditched a necklace and kept earrings gem-like and understated, and swooped back her hair into a wet look. And then, there were her eyes.

Twitter thought it was feathers. We initially considered gems. But upon further inspection, Emma went the old arts and crafts route and put gold leaf at the corner of her eyes, off-setting the dark and glam mega smoky eye (a smoky eye to end all smoky eyes, reaching up all the way to the brow) and then dabbing golden eye shadow between the inner corner and her bridge. The result is certainly a statement. Gold leaf might be used for decorating our middle school science fair poster boards, but for Emma, the extremely thin gold flecks add an incredible dose of glamour.
