Gosh, You're Gorgeous: 6-Step Classic Beauty Look

Hello dearies,

If your taste is classic and maybe even a bit old-fashioned, this makeup tutorial is for you. It's romantic and reminds me of springtime in Paris.

Get lips to long for with YSL Rouge Couture lipstick in Beige Etrusque ($30). This classic, beige-pink shade is very sophisticated and pretty.  (Expert Tip: Start with the lips because if you put on lipstick first, you usually will find that you end up using a touch less foundation and blush overall.)

 Next, squeeze a few drops of Bare Escentuals bareVitamins Prime Time foundation primer ($21, Sephora) into the palm of your hands, and spread it across your face with your fingertips.

Apply a layer of YSL Teint Radiance SPF 20 foundation in Opal. (MAC and Nars both offer excellent options for gals with darker skintones.) This foundation has a beautiful, porcelain-like texture, and effectively covers uneven areas and redness.  You can use a foundation brush to distribute a thin layer evenly across your face.

Dab Ole Henriksen Truth Serum ($48, Sephora) on your cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. Allow the serum to set in for a minute. I know most people wear serums underneath makeup, but live it up! Serums can take your makeup look from a basic matte to a "Hollywood glow" in seconds.

Rub a pinch of Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in powder pink ($22, Sephora) on your cheeks for stunning results.
Finish with your go-to mascara. Mine is Armani "Eyes to Kill" lately (scroll down to read my post). What's yours?
