Get Jessica Stroup's Smoldering Look

It’s a bit chilly in New York, but that doesn’t mean stars look any less hot when they attend shows at the Tents for Fashion Week. Take 90210 star Jessica Stroup, who, despite the bitter cold, heated up the room at every show she attended. Want the scoop on how her smoldering look was created? Of course you you do– that’s why you’re here!

theBalm makeup artist, Felicia Roman wanted to keep all attention on Jessica’s bright blue eyes, so she went dramatic with the lids and kept the rest of the star’s face simple.

Here’s the step-by-step:

thebalm pick up liners.jpg1.) Felicia started by using the Pick-Up-Liners pencil in Don Juan (three in a set, $19, to smudge a line around the lashes and in a thicker line covering most of the bottom part of the lid to achieve smoky definition. Because the Pick Up Liners are half the size of a typical pencil, Felicia was able to get up close and really push the liner into the base of the lashes with perfect precision.

Felicia dabbed Lucious Lani eyeshadow (the champagne shade from the ShadyLady Eye Shadow Palette, $38, ) across the lid to highlight the symmetrical shape of her face and then finished it off with a light dusting of the sheer 100% mineral Overshadows in You Buy, I’ll Fly (a copper shimmer, $15, to make Stroup’s eyes really pop. It was also blended into the lower lash line over the pencil for an ethereal finish.

The lashes were defined and volumized with 3 coats of Two Timer Mascara ($20,; two coats to instantly build fuller lashes and a third to separate and lengthen.

When it came to the skin, Felicia evened out and smoothed Jessica’s skin by blending BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer ($25, with TimeBalm Concealer ($18, Becaue the TimeBalm Concealer has time released hydrating properties, there was no need to reapply between shows- Jessica’s under eye area stayed bright all day.
