"I prepared Dianna's skin with La Mer Moisturizing Lotion ($230) and the Eye Balm to give me beautifully hydrated skin to work with."
"I then evened out her skin tone with Chanel's Vitalumière Aqua Foundation ($45)." This particular formula has a consistency almost like a tinted moisturizer. Press it into the skin with your fingertips for a natural-looking finish.
"I then lightly powdered the skin to set the foundation with La Mer The Powder ($65)."
"I wanted her cheeks to be very subtle with a soft glow so I used Laura Mercier Second Skin Blush in Spiced Cider ($24) for contour and color..."
"...and then added a glow with the more shimmery Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush in 3-Beige Rose ($44).”
“Her eyes were my main focus. Using NARS Eyeshadow in Persia ($24) and Laura Mercier Baked Eye Color in Terracotta (see #7), I mixed the two together to get a rusty orange tone which I used in the crease of her eyes and outer corners, and lightly under her eyes on the outer corners, to create depth and a smokey effect.

"I then came in with Laura Mercier Baked Eye Color in Ballet Pink ($23) in the inner corner of her eyes to create a highlight and a softness to the inner corner of her eye."
"To finish off her eyes I used YSL Faux Cils Mascara in Burgundy ($30) to make her green eyes pop, and to add more depth to the lash line.”
“Finally for Dianna's lips I used YSL Glossy Stain Beige Aquarelle ($34) for a perfect pout that would last all night.”
