Prepping the face
1 moisturize with Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Creme.
2 use foundation to create a smooth face (try Makeup Forever HD)
3 conceal any dark areas under your eyes Eve (try Pearl Salmon Concealer; for these models, the shade ‘Light’ was used)
4 prime your eyelids (try Urban Decay Primer Potion)
Look 1: Fun and funky eyes

1 use a deep, pigmented color for the eyes (try MAC Paint in “Matisserie” on the whole eye lid, MAC eyeshadow in the shade “Juxt” on the inner half of the eye lid and Clinique eyeshadow in the shade “Royal Rush” on the outer half of the eye lid)
2 to create glowing cheeks, use both blush and bronzer (try blush in “Orgasm” by Nars and a bronzer by E.L.F)
3 to set the makeup, try MAC Fix + Spray and then lightly brush a setting powder over the lids (try Ben Nye Banana Visage Luxury Powder)
4 play down the lips with a subtle gloss (try MAC Plushglass in the shade “Foolishly Fab” mixed with NYX lipgloss in the shade “French Kiss”)

Look 2: Au naturale

1 use a coral shade on the eyelid (try Coastal Scents 88 palette) and use a brown shade for contour using the same palette
2 line the rim of your eye with a light brown shade
3 to create glowing cheeks, use both blush and bronzer (try blush in “Orgasm” by Nars and a bronzer by E.L.F)
4 to set the makeup, try MAC Fix + Spray and then lightly brush a setting powder over the lids (try Ben Nye Banana Visage Luxury Powder)
5 lips: try MAC Mattene Lipstick in the shade “Orange Dare” and top it with Palladio Couture Utlra Shiny Lipgloss in “Clear”
