Using MAC Acrylic Paint in White and a small detail brush I swiped the color onto the lid following the slight contour of the crease. Clean up edges with a small q tip saturated in moisturizer. For the red dot using MAC Paint Stick in Basic Red use a regular sized cotton swab gently press the tip and move in circular motions to achieve the size you want. Brush eyebrows up  with Anastasia Clear Brow Gel.

For cheeks use a stippling brush to feather chantecaille cheek geleé in happy onto the apples of cheek. Use hands to press milk makeup hydrating oil stick into the cheekbones, across bridge of nose and chin to create a natural dewy highlight. 

 

Using the pink side from L'Oréal Infallible Paint Eyeshadow in Navy Yard use a printed eye detail brush to draw a a line following the curve of the crease. Then use a small square detail brush (smith Cosmetics) to draw a block square line along the lash line using MAC Pigment in Neo-orange with Smashbox White Eye Primer as a base to make the color pop.

First curl your lashes with Troy Surrat lash curler. Then use a brow brush to brush out lashes. Then coat and prime your lashes with Dior Lash Primer. Using a fan mascara brush lightly cover the top and bottom of lashes with Make Up For Ever Aqua XL in White as a base to make your color pop. For the blue I mixed MAC Paint Stick in Ultra Marine and Make Up For Ever Flash Color pot in Turquoise using a synthetic brush layer the blue liberally into the lashes. Once color is in place gently pinch tips of lashes into clusters with tweezers or fingers

Clean any lines with a a mini cotton swab lightly saturated with eye cream.

Use another flat square brush to clean up any lines. Gently pat RMS Living Luminizer into cheeks and brow bone for a natural highlight.  spritz Caudalie Beauty Elixir over face to finish.
