I wanted to wear Stylesetter, so I figured a softer eye would be best, because Stylesetter is pretty bright on its own. I don’t know if I’ve done a combination with these kinds of colors before, but I was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out.
Substitutes: Femme-fi = Nylon; Stylesetter = Girl About Town (blotted)
For eyes, start by applying Eden primer potion as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Nylon eyeshadow on the inner half of the eyelid. Next, apply Bright Sunshine eyeshadow on the outer half of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer crease with Expensive Pink eyeshadow with the 226, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Add depth to the crease by lightly applying Satin Taupe eyeshadow into the outer, lower crease with the 219. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Bourbon eyeliner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.
For cheeks, apply Coral Riviera blush to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116. Highlight cheekbones by applying Rose Diamond skinshimmer with the 165 onto the tops of cheeks.
For lips, apply Stylesetter lipstain marker for a brightened pink stain.

Make Up For Ever‘s Alliance member James Vincent created a smoky eye for Joan Jett for the NY premiere of “The Runaways.” He used HD Elixir and HD Invisible Cover (117) to create a luminous canvas with just a bit of HD Invisible Cover Concealer and HD Microfinish Powder. On the eyes, he used #35 from brown to lash for a base, then swept Diamond Powder #11 across the brow bone to highlight. He used Eyeshadow #13 to give depth to the crease and to line the top and bottom lashes. To line eyes, he used Aqua Eyes #0L with #2L to add richness. On cheeks, he used Eyeshadow #13 to contour and Powder Blush #69 on the apples of cheek and a touch of Matte Bronze #2 to add life. He finished the lips with Aqua Lip Pencil #3C and Fascinating Lip Gloss #9.
