Eyes
Brush a shimmery yellow-green eyeshadow (try Urban Decay’s Acid Rain or MAC’s Chartreuse pigment) onto your entire eyelid. Rim your upper and lower lashlines with a black eye pencil and apply several coats of mascara. For an extra oomph, apply glitter on the center of your eyelid.

Cheeks
To add a little warmth to your skin, brush on a shimmery peach color (try NARS Orgasm) onto your cheekbones.

Lips
For nude lips like Yuna’s, first tone down your lips with a flesh-colored lipstick like MAC’s Myth or simply apply a thin layer of foundation. Slick on a pale lipgloss like MAC’s Florabundance or Dior’s Addict Ultra Gloss in Dazzling Beige.

Okay here is a post with some of the worst makeup I have seen in 2006. I do not mean to bash any of the following celebrities. I am just giving my two cents so if you are a fan, I am sorry and did not mean to offend.

Nothing is right about Sharon here in this picture. The hair is too much and the makeup is washing her out and making her look a gazillion times older. And seriously, what is with the yellow lipgloss?! Ditch it and throw on some blush girl!

Blue eyeshadow paired with bright red lipstick? This look cannot get any tackier. Paris, I know you are the heiress to the Hilton millions and you live an extravagant life but that does not give you the right to walk around looking like a $5 hooker. Please just stick to your MAC Prrr lipglass.

Here is another typical case of Oompa-Loompa syndrome that makes me shudder. The orange skin paired with the uber red lips is just ughhhhhhh! Plus the over-the-top liner is not only making Brook’s eyes look small and beady but it could also send her on her way to an eye infection.

Every time I see this picture, I just cannot help but laugh out loud. That hair is making Teri look like a maid and the powdery, unflattering makeup is definitely not making her look any younger either. Sorry Terry, you might be votd the “Sexiest Woman in the World” in the 90s but if you keep walking around like this, everyone can see why all the guys prefer Eva more than you.

Face
Skin must be kept glowy and flawless. For those of you who are on the pale side, try mixing a liquid bronzer like Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator Lotion in Golden Light into your foundation. Highlight the bridge of your nose with a shimmery beige color like MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Shimpagne.

Eyes
Nicole’s eyes are sexified with a soft smoky look. Try Stila’s Fall in Love trio in Cedar Grove from their Fall collection. Apply the lightest color as a wash and add a little more under your browbone. Next, apply the shimmery copper color onto your entire eyelid and darken your crease with the mocha color. Remember to apply black eyeliner along both your up and bottom lashlines and lots and lots of mascara to bring out your peepers.

Cheeks
Suck in your cheeks and apply a peachy pink blush (try NARS Orgasm) along your cheekbones. Next, apply a darker blush like NARS Laguna right under the pink blush to contour.

Lips
Skip liner and apply a peachy pink lipgloss like NARS Orgasm to make your lips look uber luscious.

Katja requested a breakdown of Koda Kumi’s eye makeup in this picture with MAC products. I found a similar look on MAC’s website and here is the breakdown:



Eyes
Using the 222 Brush, wash a layer of Quarry Eye Shadow over the entire eyelid and closely under the lower lashline. To give more depth to the eye, apply Embark Eye Shadow in the outer crease as well as the outer half of the lower lash line. Blend in Carbon Eye Shadow with a 219 Brush in the inner crease, at the top of the outer crease and lightly at the lower lashline. Blending is key to mesh all three shadows together for that smokey effect. Next, use Brownborder Technakohl to line the top lashline, fanning slightly upwards. Line the bottom lashline with the same eye liner without connecting the line at the outer and inner corner of the eye. Smudge the liner slightly. Slather top and bottom lashes with as many layers of Zoomblack Zoomlash mascara as you desire.

Cheeks
With the 192 Brush, smooth on Uncommon Blushcreme on the cheekbones and blend upwards towards the temples.

Lips
For this nude lip, apply Sandy B. Lipstick and top it off with Florabundance Tinted Lipglass.
