We've stuck to the beauty rule of only using mascara on our top eyelashes after getting scolded by makeup artists for going for the bottom lashes, too. It turns out that applying black mascara to both the top and bottom lashes drags the eye down, creating a less wide-awake and youthful appearance.

But what's a girl to do when her lower eyelashes need a bit of love? "Game of Thrones" actress Emilia Clarke has opened our eyes (literally!) to a new trick.

For the show's Season 3 premiere in Los Angeles Monday night, Clarke wore subtle, smokey eye makeup comprised of two different mascara shades. Makeup artist Dawn Broussard used black mascara on the top lashes and brown on the bottom for an eye-brightening effect.

“Emilia’s dress had royal blue tones and was super sleek and modern, so we didn’t want to contrast too much with her makeup. We wanted timeless glamour with a hint of something excitable,” explained Broussard.

We think she nailed it with this two-toned mascara trick... see for yourself!
