    Prime your skin

    Start with a nourishing primer for soft, supple skin and to create a smooth canvas for makeup. Apply using your fingers.

    A touch of glow

    Warm the skin with BB cream bronzer, with emphasis on the cheeks, hairline and jawline.

    Get wet

    Go for the wet look on eyes with an eye gloss (we used Rouge Bunny Eye Gloss).

    Define

    Subtly define eyes by rimming them with a sexy metallic shadow and then immediately smudging the liner for an effortless, worn-in effect.

    Lash it up

    Coat your lashes in a defining and enhancing mascara, like Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara.

    Leave them shiny

    Cover lips in a sheer lip-enhancing gloss that nearly mimics your natural color. Hint: That's the secret to kissable lips.
