Clarins Soft Cream Eye Colour in No. 02 (Gold), No. 07 (Pink), and No. 06 (Brown) on the top lid. Close to the bottom lashes, she used a powdered, taupe-colored shadow by Yves Saint Laurent. For “a slight bit of sparkle” on the inner corner of Barrymore’s eyes, Ferullo used Lancôme La Poudre Aux Yeux in a limited-edition silver color. Ferullo didn’t use any eyeliner.
