"I use a combination of two foundations - Stila's Illuminating Foundation focused around the eye area and cheekbones to create that glow, and then the Natural Finish Oil-Free makeup by Stila to get rid of blemishes and under-eye circles.
I use a combination of things. Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener along with It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye.
To touch up blemishes, I use Stila's cover up stick. As a finishing powder, Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder.
And then cheek color. This is kind of the go-to cheek color I feel like for the holiday season. It's a really cool looking combination. It's nice because you can also use this on the lip as well.
To prep her hair, I started with a little bit of Blow's Faux Dry Shampoo just to give a little roughness to the cuticle to get that sort of fuzzy, ethereal look.
And then to set the curls, I used Ted Gibson's Beautiful Hold Hairspray. I picked out all the curls and that sort of finished off the look.
As an all-over color, all over the lid and brow bone, as well as under the eye, I used Smashbox Eyeshadow in Bliss. It's a really nice iridescent, but mostly just nude shadow.
On the center of the lid, to give a little pop to the center of the lid, I used Enlighten as a shadow by LORAC. The warmth makes it very wearable and you still get that really trendy silver that comes through.
Toward the outer corners, I used Smashbox shadow in Platinum which just gives a little bit more depth.
At the lash line, I used several things. Tart Emphasize High Definition Eye Pencil. On top of that, I worked in a little bit of this Jane Iredale eyeshadow. It's a cool plum, but it works really well into that silver, icy look.
To get the silver to really pop on the inner corner of her eye, I used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil in Yeyo. It's a really, really nice, bright silver. It pops a lot.
And for mascara, we were really going for clean definition, so we used Bare Minerals Flawless Definition mascara. The best part of this mascara really is the brush. It just defines perfectly. It never leaves any clumps.
To create the part of the look that's on her lips, just sort of that lip-stained, iced-over, glossy look, I used Stila's Yumberry Crush Lip and Cheek Stain. I only used that in the center. On the rest of her lip, I used the Vincent Longo Botticelli Dawn Blush. It's awesome. It just softly colors around where the stain is.
On the top of that, the most miniscule amount of Smashbox High Shine Lip Gloss."
