WHAT TO WEAR

A structured Smythe coat, the perfect lived-in tee shirt and ripped jeans.

EYES

Using a fluffy brush, buff Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow in Carmel all over the lid, layering the copper shade, Wine, into the creases, focusing on the outer corner of the eye. Switch to a smaller eyeshadow brush and smudge Carmel followed by Wine along the lower lash line. Tightly line Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer 42 along the upper lash line, then apply Cover Fx Custom Enhancer Drops in Sunlight into the inner corners.

FACE

Apply a sheer layer of Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup using a damp BeautyBlender. It’s oil free, but not totally matte, so your skin is left with a luminous finish that lasts all day. There isn’t a lot of contouring here, just some subtle cheekbone definition using NARS Contour Blush in Olympia. To warm up the complexion further, Laura Mercier’s Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic can be applied to the cheekbones and cupids bow.

LIPS

Keep the lips natural and sheer by dabbing a peach-hued lipstick like NARS Sexual Healing using your finger to apply. It’s got a slight shimmer, but no gloss, so the texture is still there.
