I was so inspired by this stunning photograph by Jose Villa (one of my favourite photographers!) for the Style Me Pretty book coming out very soon (which I am very excited about!). So inspired, that I decided to recreate the look. This is exactly my type of makeup, illuminating, fresh and enhancing natural features. I love this for everyday, with less dramatic lashes and liner. For special events or date nights, some individual lashes placed at the outer corner of the eyes, and top lid liner will make this feature of your face stand out beautifully for a more glam look. There's something so romantic and flirtatious about long lashes. These are my go-to products that last all day and give that glow from within look. Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them!

1. Benefit's They're Real Mascara (emphasize the outer eye lashes)  
2. Benfit's Watts Up Soft Focus Highlighter (cheek bones, brow bone, nose)
3. Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten (eyeshadow base)
4. Laura Mercier eyeshadow in Vanilla Nuts (all over lid)
5. Bare Minerals bronzer in Warmth (all over face: E3 motion)
6. Urban Decay's Naked Skin Foundation
7. MAC Cremeblush in Posey (apply with blush brush lightly to apples of your cheeks)
8. YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch (under eye concealer and brightener) 
9. Makeup Forever Faux Cils (for the ends of your lashes)
10. Tarte OM Sheer Iridescent Pink Pearl Vitamin Infused Lipgloss
