To perfect skin, James used Radiant Cream Compact Foundation and
Radiant Creamy Concealer. He contoured the cheeks with the new Anguilla Matte Multiple topped with Altai Matte Multiple, both launching Spring 2014.

On the eyes, James used Via Veneto Larger Than Life® Eyeliner and Black Valley Eye Paint to create a graphic look and contrasted it with Rue Bonaparte Larger Than Life® Eyeliner. The lashes were coated with Larger Than Life® Lengthening Mascara while the brows were brushed up with Oural Brow Gel, a clear color.

He finished the look with Biscayne Park and Floralies Satin Lip Pencil on the lips.
