Skin
To perfect her beautiful skin, I used Covergirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation. It leaves her skin dewy, but not shiny–I love the finish of this foundation. To hide any shadows underneath her eyes, I patted on Covergirl TRUconceal Concealer. I finished her skin by lightly brushing on Covergirl TRUblend Pressed Powder.

Eyes
First, I started on her eyes, brushing on Covergirl Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in Golden Sunrise from the lash line to the crease. Then, I applied Brown Smolder from her crease to just below her brow, which gives a very natural, yet dramatic look to the eye. Also, I used Snow Blossom in the inner corner of her eyes to add highlight. I lined the top of her eyes with Covergirl LiquiLine Blast Eyeline in Brown Blaze and smudged it up a bit, and to add more depth just at the lash line. I followed with Covergirl LineExact Liquid Liner in Very Black.On the bottom lash line, I used Covergirl LiquiLine Blast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze and followed with a little of the Brown Smolder Shadow to smoke it up a bit. To finish the eyes, I used several coats of Covergirl LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara in Very Black for a super glamorous look.

Cheeks
I used Covergirl TRUblend Minerals Blush in Shimmering Sands – it gives a shimmery flush of color, which is very pretty.

Lips
For dramatic and long lasting lip color, I used Covergirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Tempt — this is such a beautiful wine color.
