Your Pass To Backstage Beauty – Rock The Radient Look With Smashbox

1 Comment 01 September 2008

Simple, chic, and sometimes with freckles shining through, the au natural look gets updated and subtly illuminated with peachy, pinky shades to give a slight punch that looks almost doll-like. Makeup artist Tyron Machusen explains, “For lips, these shades of apricot and pink are flattering on everyone and really complement a gorgeous, fresh complexion.”


For eyes that glisten, first cover dark circles, and even the upper lid with a reflective concealer. Apply champagne shadow to lids, then define the upper lash line with deep brown shadow. Bolster lashes with a coat of lash primer, and finish with blue-black mascara to instantly brighten the eyes.

Start by filling in fine lines with a clear wrinkle filler. Then highlight the bridge of the nose, brow bones, and the upper lip with a dab of luminizer.
