|Above: The look.
- I started by painting my nails with Essie nail polish in Como Here. This bright coral-meets-red added just the right pop of color to my otherwise neutral look.
- Then, I tapped a bit of the Boots Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm along my upper cheekbones and down the center of my nose for a subtle glow.
- To brighten the eyes and conceal darkness, I blended a touch of the Boots Botanics Radiance Highlighter Pen along my orbital area.
- To sculpt the face, I swept the Boots No7 Perfectly Bronzed Mosaic Bronzer along my cheekbones and around the perimeters of my face.
- I applied the Circa Color Saturated Eye Crayon in Sparking Citrine on my upper eyelids and along my lower lash line for a radiant champagne-toned base.
- I carefully swept the Circa Vivid Vinyl Eye Lining Fluid in Vibrant Emerald along my upper lash line (closest to the lashes) and created not one but two tails for a unique twist on liquid liner. The precise tip of this liner makes this a reasonable feat, even for those who find liquid liner to be a challenge!
- I finished the eye area by adding two coats of the Boots No7 Lash Impact Mascara for full and lengthened lashes.
- To create a customized satin-matte rosy nude lip, I mixed the Boots Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm with some shavings from the No7 Perfectly Bronzed Mosaic Bronzer and tapped the combination onto my lips like a true backstage makeup artist might do. The result couldn’t have been more divine!
