Someone get me Halle Berry's phone number, because I want to know all of her fountain-of-youth secrets. At the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball in NYC, she had heads turning to get a glimpse of her in that super-sexy cutout cocktail dress. I love how her mismatched earrings play off of her short, tousled pixie cut, and the warm brown and salmon-pink tones of her makeup create a glowing effect. To get tips on re-creating her makeup at home, read more.
- Eyes: Since Halle is wearing different textures and tones of brown shadows, I recommend buying a palette with several shades in the same color family: a matte dark brown for the crease, a neutral light shade as a base, and a shimmering toffee brown for the lids. Try Sephora's Brown Smoky Eyes Palette ($38), which has a variety of shadows, including a natural beige for the lids, dark brown for the crease, light chocolate for the lids, and metallic gold to create that shimmering effect. Use the coffee-toned liner to softly line both the upper and lower lash lines, along with black Lash Plumper Mascara to open up the eyes.
- Cheeks: For that glowing-from-within appearance, it's all about cream-based products. Apply a creamy warm pink blush to the apples of the cheeks and lightly tap in and blend around the hairline. Try Boots No7 Blush Tint Cream in Rosebud ($10)
- Lips: Line around the lips with a creamy lip pencil, like Smashbox Doubletake Lipcolor in Amaretto ($18). Lightly dab any harsh lines with your finger, but don't fill in the lips completely on the bottom center of the lip. Instead, add a nude or pink glosssuch as Revlon Beyond Natural Cream Lipgloss in Nude, to create fullness with a touch of shine. ($8).
