To complete the look, I also cleaned up the undereye area with a brush dipped with Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation in #127. Then I dusted MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Star Wonder high on the cheeks and added Anastasia Barely HydraFull Gloss from the Birthday Suit Set on the lips.

Done!
