For Taylor’s young and radiant glow, CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation was used on the skin along with a peachy blush.

To make Taylor’s eyes pop, Lorrie started by brushing on CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in Turquoise Tempest #435, then with CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Eyeliner in Radiant Sapphire #710. She finished the eyes with CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara in Very Black #500.

Lorrie created a more muted lip with CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Rapture #280 to balance the bold color used on Taylor’s eyes.

CoverGirl is available at drugstores nationwide and drugstore.com.
