Using Dolce & Gabbana Make Up Foundation Brush, Pat applied small amounts of Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation to the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. She then blended the foundation moving from the center of the face outwards to create a flawless base. Next, using the Blush in Provocative and Rose, Pat created a warm and radiant glow by sweeping it over the apples of the cheeks.

On the eyes, Eyeshadow Quad in Femme Fatale was applied to create a sultry sophisticated look. Eye pencils in shades of black and rich coffee were then applied on the lids of the eyes to create definition and to make eyes pop. Finally, Pat used the Secret Eyes Mascara in Black to create a gorgeous fluttering veil of volumized lashes.

Pat applied the new Passion Duo lipsticks using both Imperial and Sensation to create a gorgeously sexy full lip with an amazing blend of vibrant, moisturizing pigment and sheer gloss.

Pat used two nail colors for the show, the deep, rich Dahlia and a Wild green shade, both with a luxurious matte finish.
