Complexion & Cheeks
James applied Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation to even out skin tone while keeping the coverage sheer. To give a glow that flushes through the skin, he used Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Blush #4 on the apples of the cheeks and Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Blush #6 at the high point of the cheekbones for warmth underneath the foundation. He finished by adding Make Up For Ever Mat Bronze to any areas on the face that the sun would hit.

James kept the brows simply groomed and brushed Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream #13 in warm beige with a spoolie brush through them to create a beautiful ombre effect. For the lids, James applied Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow #28E in pearly beige and #20E in pearly taupe, and finished with a touch of Make Up For Ever Star Powder #940 in the center of the eye for a soft and open look. For the lashes, he applied Make Up For Ever Individual Faux Lash #9 along the lash line and Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash #3 in deep brown to keep the look young and fresh.

James used Make Up For Ever Lab Shine in sheer bright peach and pink shades to polish the pout.
