JESSICA ALBA is looking dewy, fresh-faced, and supremely natural (although her lashes make me wonder…). This is a fabulous look for any occasion, any time of the year, because it’s incredibly fitting to her complexion and natural features. I recommend MAC’s Face & Body Foundation for a great finish that is a touch dewy. Using a flat concealer brush, like the 194, use it to put dabs of the foundation on your cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. Spritz a fluffy brush like a blush or a buffer brush with Fix+ (or flick some water onto the brush with your fingers) and go over the dabs of foundation, sheering them out and giving yourself coverage. With the 188 fibre-duo brush, apply a touch of MAC’s Natural minearlize skin finish on cheeks for just a touch of warm glow. Alternatively, use a subtle blush like MAC’s Springsheen and dust lightly on the apples of the cheeks.
Apply MAC’s Bamboo eyeshadow all over lid with the 239 brush to cover any imperfections of the lid while keeping the eyes naturally beautiful. Use MAC’s Soft Brown eyeshadow in the outer crease, putting just a touch on the outer lid, and blend softly with the 239 brush. Alba’s lashes are a thing of beauty, and whether or not they’re real, you can still get these lovelies with MAC’s #1 lashes, which are a natural length with a clear band. Take the 266 brush and dip it in Blacktrack fluidline and line along the upper lash line to give the illusion of even fuller lashes. You may want to prime your natural lashes with MAC’s Plushlash in Plushblack for extra blackness and volume. Opt for one or two coats of mascara on lower lashes, but avoid lining them.
It is likely that Alba just slicked her lips with lipgloss, because her lips are quite natural-colored. However, MAC’s Fresh Brew lipstick is a great nude lip color, especially when paired with C-thru lipglass. If you prefer using lip liner first, MAC’s Summerfruit cremestick is an excellent choice for any neutral lip product. Smile with your eyes, and you’ll be one stunning celeb-a-like!
I am sure there are some fashion forward readers, and no doubt some Project Runway fans. In case you missed it, Project Runway debuted its latest season last night. Bluefly paired up with the show to bring you “Shop This Look” so you can see all the fab clothes and accessories as seen on the previous night’s episode!
