How-To: Molly Sims' Cocktail Party Makeup

How-To: Molly Sims' Cocktail Party Makeup

Despite the heat in New York yesterday, model-turned-actress Molly Sims struck a few flirtatious poses with a cool cocktail at the National Survey of American Cocktail Culture event.

I absolutely love her laid-back Summer braids and her raisin-hued eye shadow. Molly has light hazel eyes, and as we know, purples really make green eyes pop. Since this is a festive daytime look, you don't want to wear too much makeup on your skin. I've gathered a bunch of great product suggestions below for those of you that want to re-create this look on your own.

  • FACE: Start by applying a creamy concealer to any red or dark areas and follow with a lightweight creamy foundation with a touch of shimmer. One of my favorites is Stila Liquid Illuminating Foundation in 20 Watts. Only use a little bit and blend to a flawless finish (don't forget about your jawline) with a makeup sponge.
  • For more product and application suggestions for your eyes, lips, and cheeks,


  • CHEEKS: Molly has a sweet summertime glow from the help of a creamy blush. Try applying something like Vincent Longo Water Canvas Blush in Morning Tender on the apples of your cheeks and blend upwards and outwards towards your hairline. Also, dab a touch on your nose to create the illusion of a sun-kissed flush. Next use a giant fluffy brush and add a touch of bronzer to your forehead, temples, chin, and nose.
  • EYES: This eye look is easy to achieve and all you need are four products. The first is a shimmer champagne eye shadow for underneath your brow bone and your eyeliner under the lower lash line. The second is a raisiny-sable-colored eye shadow for the crease. I love this GloMinerals GloEye Shadow Trio in Mulberry for green or hazel eyes. Next, line your upper and lower lashes with a deep aubergine or black eye liner. Finally, apply two coats of black mascara.
  • LIPS: Apply a true-pink lipstick such as Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Backstage Pink all over your lips. Since it's creamy, sheer, and has a shiny finish you don't even need gloss (unless of course you want it) — have fun!
