1.) Apply a tinted moisturizer or light foundation all over the face.
2.) Apply a concealer under the eyes as well as any discoloration.
3.) Set makeup with a translucent powder.
4.) Apply a coral blush. I recommend using Sonia Kashuk Beautifying Blush in Sunset.
5.) Apply an eye primer all the way up to the browbone. I recommend using Urban Decay Primer Potion.
6.) Apply MAC Naked Lunch to the lid.
7.) Apply NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese to the inner corner as well as the browbone.
8.) Apply a dark brown gel liner to the upper lash line.
9.) Apply a dark brown pencil liner half way in on the lower lash line.
10.) Take a white pencil liner and line the water line.
11.) Apply MAC Speed Dial lipstick and blot.
12.) Apply MAC Right Image Cremesheen Glass to the middle of the bottom lip.
