And despite the fact that it's Spring in Australia right now, her matte lip and subtle eye were pitch-perfect for this season in the northern hemisphere as well. To find out how to get her pretty pout and long lashes, just keep reading.
- Start out with several coats of an intense black mascara, like DiorShow Black Out ($24) on both your top and bottom lashes. One trick to avoid getting hard-to-remove mascara marks under your eye: put a credit card or index card under your lashes while you apply.
- Then, sweep a slightly shimmery beige eye shadow, like L'Oreal Wear Infinite in Buttercup ($4.50) on your inner eye and from you lash line up to the crease.
- Use a black eye pencil, like Jane Be Pure Gliding Liner ($4), to waterline just the upper rim of your lid.
Lips and cheeks:
- Use a nude lip liner, like Boots No. 7 Line & Define ($7), to fill in your lips. Then go over them with a soft-coral lipstick like Dr. Hauschka Amoroso #1 ($24).
- For cheeks, dust a sable blush, like L'Oreal True Match in Subtle Sable ($11), from the apples of your cheeks back to your temples, then blend.
