For a truly vibrant look, I applied NARS Doceur Blush sparingly on the cheeks and went a hot pink lipstick (MAC Outrageously Fun Lipstick). Other products featured include Dolce & Gabanna The Foundation in Creamy to even out skin tone, Graceful Swan from Graftobian Hi Def Glamour Creme Palette in Warm #1 to highlight and Mid. Marigold from Graftobian Hi Def Glamour Creme Palette in Warm #2 to contour.

Done!

    • Hi Shai,

      I use Sonia Kashuk Core Tools Synethic Pointed Eye Liner Brush… also love her Bent Eyeliner Brush. Both are very affordable and do a great job.

  1. You look great! If you don’t mind me asking, what brushes did you use to apply the gold and teal shadow for this look?

    • Sure Maggie! I used the MAC 219 Pencil Brush to apply the gold eyeshadow on the inner corner and Stila 15 Double Sided Brush to apply the teal color on the lower eye.
