  • FACE: Begin with a clean and well moisturized face and add a touch of primer to your skin so that it's even and your pores appear nice and tight. Next, using a concealer brush, apply a little bit of creamy concealer to any red areas on your face. When it's blended, dab a little bit of your favorite foundation onto a sponge and blend it all the way down to your neck so that you don't have any jawline marks. Lastly, set your foundation with a translucent powder.
  • CHEEKS: Contour your cheeks with a matte bronzer and a neutral blush. Add a little bit of highlighter to the tops of your cheekbones and blend outward for a dewy effect. And as a fun finishing touch, take a black waterproof eyeliner and carefully and precisely, create a false beauty mark near your lip.
  • EYES: Begin by sweeping a vanilla shadow all over your lids as a base and then add some champagne shimmer just below your brow-bone and inside the inner corners of your eyes. Next, apply a light layer of a deep brown shadow to your crease, blend well and then dab more of the champagne shade in the center of your upper lid. Line your upper lashes with a liquid black eyeliner (lining your bottom lashes is optional) and the most important part of this look is applying false eyelashes for a length and drama.
  • LIPS: Fill in lips with a creamy nude liner. Dip your concealer brush in concealer and brighten up the edges surrounding your lips. Apply your favorite red lipstick to your lips in a very precise manner with a lip brush and top lips with a red gloss for sexy shine.
