Prep Skin and Apply Foundation

Exfoliate face gently with a washcloth before applying any product to give skin a smooth look then apply a moisturizing day lotion (Image 1). Prime skin using a foundation primer. Mix foundation in a shade close to your skin tone with white foundation then apply mixture over face, ears and neck with a makeup sponge (Images 2 and 3). Dip mascara wand or finger into foundation mixture and cover eyebrows as well, making sure to cover them completely (Images 4 and 5).

Set Foundation

Set foundation with white face powder. Apply with a fluffy powder puff and blend out excess using a powder brush (Image 1). Use a white eyeliner pencil to define brows, and use a shimmering vanilla-colored eye shadow on top (Images 2 and 3).

Define Eye Area

Prime eyelids with shadow primer (Image 1). Start with a medium shade of lilac eye shadow and cover eyelid, continuing under the eye as well. Using a lighter shade in the same color family, blend up to the eyebrow and extend a little beyond (Image 2). Next, take a very light pink or lilac-colored blush and dust under the eyes at the highest point of the cheekbones, up into the temples and above the brows (Image 3). Blend down the cheek, but make sure to keep most of the color surrounding the eyes at the high cheekbones. Define eyes by very thinly lining them with a black liquid eyeliner. Create a tiny winged edge, then add just a whisper of a line underneath the eye as well, staying as close to the lash line as possible (Image 4). The goal is just to add a bit of definition, so apply with a light hand.
