Skin

Step One: Get the skin hydrated and ready for foundation by prepping with M.A.C Primer (maccosmetics.com, $22).

Step Two: Evenly apply M.A.C. Studio Fix over entire face starting with your t-zone and blend outwards (maccosmetics.com, $25).

Eyes

Step One: Apply a shimmery base shadow all over the eye. Then, using a rounded eye shadow brush sweep a warm gray tone from the edge of the crease to the inner eye. Pop Cosmetics carries an Eye Shadow Kit called Smokey Eyes. You get 12 great shades, including shimmery nudes, grays and blacks, to help create your look (sephora.com, $32).

Step Two: Coat lashes with black mascara like Kimora Lee Simmons Mascara (sephora.com, $6) and apply a fake lash strip of medium length lashes. Try Ardell lashes in #120 Demi (drugstore.com, $3.49).

Step Three: Line eyes with a black eye shadow (use the black in the above kit) with a thin angled eye shadow brush from the inner corner to the outer corner of the lid. Then line the bottom of the eye with the same black shadow.

Step Four: Use a Q-tip to soften both lines of shadow by slightly smudging them.

Lips

Step One: Using Spice Lip liner from M.A.C, line the lips (maccosmetics.com, $12.50).

Step Two: Skip the lipstick and just fill lips in with an Iridescent Pearl Lipgloss. Try the Shimmery Sheer Pearl Lipgloss in Lola Cosmetics Lip of Luxury Set (sephora.com, $18 for three).

Step Three: Starting at the apple of the cheek apply a gel blush. Use your fingers to gently blend upwards. Try O-Glow by Smashbox in Sheer Rosy Pink (smashbox.com, $26).
