“I started by applying CoverGirl TRUconceal Concealer #4 under the eyes and around the nose. I then applied CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Nutmeg with a sponge and set that with CoverGirl Clean Pressed Powder in Soft Honey. I chose a plum toned blush (CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Plumberry Glow) and applied it along the cheekbones and apples of the cheeks.”

“I applied CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 3-kit Shadow in Golden Sunset all over the lid and into the crease and then applied three coats of CoverGirl LashBlast 24HR Mascara to the top lashes and one coat on the bottom.”

“I applied CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Everlasting first and then applied CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipliner in Beloved. This keeps the lipstick from bleeding, but makes it easier to apply the line with the moisture of the lipstick.”

“When Sofia was ready to hit the red carpet, I sent Sofia on her way with powder, lip pencil and lipstick for reapplication.”
