Beauty Dare: NYFW Runway to Reality
Can we rip off a high-fashion runway look? Yes. We. Can.
Step 2: Apply an eye shadow primer (one of our favorites is LORAC Behind the Scenes Eye Shadow Primer, $21) all over the lid. Use your finger to pat on a shimmery eye shadow like NYX Roll On Shimmer, $4, in Platinum.
Step 3: Lightly brush away any extra glitter from underneath your eyes (tip: using a piece of Scotch tape helps pick up hard-to-clean glitter), then use a brightening concealer like Jane Iredale Active Light Concealer, $27, to cover any under-eye darkness.
Step 4: Apply an orangey cream blush to your cheekbones and blend well. (We couldn't find the perfect shade, so we multi-purposed Hard Candy All Glossed Up Lip Stain, $5, in Orange You Sweet as a blush. Clever!)
Step 5: Use your finger to blot on a pink lipstick -- we like Covergirl Lip Perfection, $5.99, in Darling -- to give the lips a natural looking tint.
Step 6: Sweep on a highlighting powder like Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush, $26, in Angelic over your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and underneath the eyebrows to get that glowing-from-within skin. Apply the shimmer you used on your eyelids to the inner corners of your eyes to really make them pop.
Step 7: Give your look staying power by using a fluffy brush to apply a translucent powder all over your face.
