What I Used

* FACE atelier Ultra Foundation in #4 Sand
* Christi Harris Precision Brow Planing System
* Milani Eye Tech Liquid Eye Liner in Black
* MAC Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner in Designer Purple
* Estee Lauder Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara in Black
* Lashes in #Sweet Sixteen
* MAC Paint Pot in Coral Crepe
* MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Perfect Topping
* MAC Made To Order Lipstick

Step by Step How To

1. Start by applying the FACE atelier Ultra Foundation with MAC #190 Foundation Brush to even out skin tone.

2. Fill in eyebrows with Christi Harris Precision Brow Planing System.

3. Pat Coral Crepe Paint Pot onto the eyelid to create a wash of color.

4. Line upper lash line with Milani Liquid Eye Liner and lower eye with Designer Purpler.

5. Curl lashes and apply mascara. Add a pair of fake lashes for more definition.

6. Using MAC #109 Small Contour Brush, apply Perfect Topping on top of the cheekbones, on the temples and down the nose to bring out features.

7. Smile big and apply three dots of Coral Crepe onto the apples. Blend towards the hairline with MAC #188 Small Duo Fibre Face Brush.

8. Finish with Made To Order Lipstick.

Beauty Tip: Coral is a universal color that will work on a variety of skin tones. Those with lighter skin tone should go for lighter, peachier corals while darker skin looks better with brighter corals with orange/red undertones. Check out these tips for more info on how to rock the color.

    Gorgeous look. I’m still about to try coral crepe as blush! Made To Order looks so pretty on you.. I got Dressmaker Dressmaker, but you’re making me lem for that one too! x

    Thanks Princesa Livia! You should totally use Coral Crepe as a blush – it will look great on your skin tone.

    I almost got Dressmaker Dressmaker too but ended up with Made To Order because it made my lips pop more =)

    Hi I was just wondering if I could request a picture without the circle contacts? I find them a bit distracting and they take away form the makeup look :(. Much appreciated, thanks! 🙂

    i’m really thinking of trying the milani eyeliner. it looks wonderful.

    Thanks Laila and AtelierGal! I’m sure you ladies can make the colors work. They really aren’t that bright.

    All the pics I took show me wearing the contacts. I can try taking one without them next time.

    Thanks Wendy and yes you should check out the Milani eye liner. It’s cheap but works great!

    When you highlight and you said apply perfect topping on temples, is that the side of the forehead? I never knew you’re suppose to place it there.

    Hi phyllis,
    I love your makeup looks. I know you have a few entries on megan fox’s makeup but I was wondering if you could do a Megan Fox FOTD/look for us? I like the neutral yet sultry style 🙂

  • Reply Kay May 20, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    and yes! A youtube channel would be fantastic too!

    Thanks for replying to my email! I haven’t seen the milani liners in purple for some reason, but I did get the gold one and love it. Love this look, and those tips for coral shades to match your skintone are so helpful.

  • Reply Phyllis June 8, 2010 at 10:58 pm


    Yes I did blend the highlighter from my cheekbone up to the temples right by my eyebrow to give my eyes a lift.

  • Reply Phyllis June 8, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    Sure Kay! Want to pick out a specific look for me?

  • Reply Phyllis June 8, 2010 at 10:59 pm

    You’re welcome makeup morsels! The purple liner is by MAC, not Milani =)

  • Reply Jessica June 13, 2010 at 2:08 pm
