Because a perfectly polished complexion is the cornerstone to this makeup look, I highly recommend beginning with a thorough exfoliation. Madeleine Mono’s Act 1, 2 & 3 Set is a great start because it includes a gentle scrub, a hydrating moisture mask and a super-hydrating moisturizer. Following this three-step regimen before applying your makeup will give you a nice, smooth canvas to begin working your magic!
Now that your skin has been properly cared for, apply Sara St. James Natural Glow Face Tint to your entire face. This moisturizing tint evens out skin imperfections while giving skin a dewy, natural look.
If shine is a problem for you, dust the smallest amount of Arabella Stuart Candlelight Finishing Powder to T-Zone only, using Japonesque’s Powder Brush. A healthy sheen is the most important part of this makeup look, so be sure to apply powder sparingly.
Using Sistina Café Colori Eyeshadows, apply the ivory shade onto brow bones with Japonesque’s Medium Fluff Eyeshadow Brush. Use this same brush to sweep the soft pink color over lids.
Dip Japonesque’s Crease Brush into the lightest brown (her hat) and blend thoroughly into your crease for natural-looking depth and dimension.
Now, use Sistina Eye Crayon Definire in Carboncino to define upper lash line. Keep the pencil close to lashes for a nice crisp line. To achieve Sandra’s slightly winged look, lift pencil up and out at a 45 degree angle when you reach the outer corners of your eyes. Be careful not to extend liner down past corners as this can cause eyes to appear droopy.
Now curl lashes with Japonesque's Power Curl Lash Curler and apply two coats of Sistina Mascara Maxima in Mezzanotte Black to top lashes.
For a rosy-cheeked look like Sandra’s, use the Japonesque Blush Brush to apply the deeper in shade in the Arabella Stuart Duo Blusher in Somerset to the apples of your cheeks blending up towards your hairline. Use the same brush to sweep the lighter shade across the tops of your cheekbones.
Define your lips with Jean-Michelle Le Stylo Pour Les Levres in Rose Jardin. This soft rosy shade will give subtle color and definition.
Now, apply Jean-Michelle Infinite Lip Couleur in Pink Rose for a long-lasting, natural-finish.
Voila! You’re done!
