What she thought:
I really liked how this look plays up your eyes and cheeks. I kept the rest of my face neutral -- just a light dusting of powder (Covergirl TruBlend Pressed Powder, $6.72) and my usual application of shimmery brown eyeshadow (Maybelline New York EyeStudio Wet Eyeshadow in Copper Chic, $6.49) and eyeliner (NYX Eye Pencil in Black, $2.00). I made sure to curl my eyelashes well, since it takes several coats of mascara to make this look work. Two coats of dark blue mascara and another two coats of a lighter blue mascara made for an eye-catching evening look, perfect for a night out with the girls (yet not too over-the-top). And to finish, I swiped on a pinky-nude lipstick and blended it onto my cheeks as Perdis recommended. No blush needed!
