To prep the skin, Westman used Revlon PhotoReady Color Correcting and Perfecting Primers to even out skin tone but also allow the model’s natural skin to show through. Cheeks were given a subtle pop of color with the limited edition Revlon Baby Sticks for Lips & Cheeks in Pink Passion and skin was perfected with Nearly Naked Powder.

To add dimension to eyes, Westman used a mix of grey and brown shadows on the lid and added a bright white shade as highlighter around the eye, from the Colorstay 16H Eye Shadow collection (Bombshell and Adventurous). She then worked a very thin coat of Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner in Black into the lashline and gave lashes spell-binding length and volume using the new Lash Potion Mascara in Blackest Black.

To complete the look, Westman gave models a soft shine on the lips with ColorBurst Lip Gloss in Crystal Water.
