Lead makeup artist Diane Kendal says of this look, “It’s is all about the eyes with soft matte lips for contrast.” To bring strength to the face, Diane focused on creating smoky eyes and full brows, while downplaying the lips and keeping skin fresh with a light brushing of blush for a healthy glow.

On the face: NARSskin Hydrating Moisture Cream to moisturize entire face. NARS Concealer, as needed, to cover any imperfections. A minimal amount of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (NEW for Fall 2009). NARS Blush in Gilda, applied lightly on the apples of the cheeks.

On the eyes: NARS Eyeliner Pencil in Mambo to line upper lashes and crease, blend over entire lid and up to brows, keeping dense color by lashline. Line lower lashes and gently blend. NARS Single Eyeshadow in Bali to fill in brows. A very thin line on upper lashes with NARS Eyeliner Stylo in Black (NEW for Fall 2009). Lashes curled with NARS Eyelash Curler
