After keeping a low profile for some time, Charlize Theron hit up a party in New York City on Thursday night. The 35-year-old actress sported a white feathered Dior minidress, black strappy sandals (also by Dior) and super sexy makeup for an overall effect that said, "I'm back and I'm hotter than ever."

"Charlize's dress was really ethereal and feathery so I wanted to go for strong eyes," Shane Paish, International Beauty Expert for Dior tells Us Weekly. "I was doing bright lips on her for a while and now we're going back to the smoky look -- it's so easy and works for both day and night."

To recreate Theron's look, try Dior 5-Couleurs Designer eyeshadow in Amber Design #708, Diorshow
Mascara in Black, Dior Waterproof Crayon Eyeliner in Trinidad Black (all of which Paish used on the star).

Use the pencil to define your upper and lower lashlines from the inner to the outer corners. You can leave the liner as is, or smudge it out a bit with your finger. Next, sweep a shimmery brown shadow over your lid and up into your crease, blending the color up and out. Use a light champagne color to highlight your browbones and finish with at least two coats of mascara on your lashes.
