Step 1: Skin Radiance
Great make-up results start with great skin. In the winter months keeping your skin cleansed with the Clarisonic System and hydrated with Josie Maran's Argon Oil is the key to a beautiful and radiant complexion.
Step 2: Fresh, Clean and Sheer Foundation
Foundation should match your skin exactly. When choosing a foundation, test shades on your jawline not the back of your hand.

Step 3: Intense Indigo Smokey Eye Apply a sheer wash of translucent powder over lid (this helps eye shadow move evenly across the eye). Using a eye shadow brush, press indigo matte eye shadow on your eyelid to crease. Trace a black eyeliner pencil on your upper and lower waterline. Apply 3 coats of Estee Lauder Turbo Lash mascara to really make your eyes pop. NOTE: When filling in your eyebrows, choose a pencil or shadow that matches the shade of your eyebrows and hair color.

Step 4: Bronze & Glow Cheeks
Apply bronzer on temples, forehead and hollows of cheeks beneath your cheekbones. Sweep highlighter above brow, top of cheekbones, and bridge of nose to add dimension to the face. Shown on Rachel: Rich Cosmetics moulin rouge mineral baked blush in "Bronze Swirl"
Step 5: Matte Deep Bordeaux Strong Lip
Apply lip balm and blot. Trace and color in lips with a lip pencil that matches your lip color shade exactly. Using a lip brush fill in lips with a deep Bordeaux lip color. Finish by using your finger to press lip color into your lips. This helps remove excess shine and helps lip color last longer.
