Teen Beauty: Come to My Garden

This spring, make your eyes pop with the perfect green eyeshadow, flawless skin and movie star lips. This makeup tutorial is just four easy steps.

GREEN WITH ENVY: Apply the light green shade in the Givenchy Candide Garden eye prism palette across both eyelids in two quick sweeps. (In real life, the color looks closer to lemongrass, a gorgeous yellow-green.)

FACE: If you normally wear foundation, try something different. Consider mixing just a few drops of Dior Nude Skin Perfect Hydrating Concealer ($29, Sephora) and a high-quality serum, such as Dior Capture Totale One Essential serum, and blending the combination across your face. This can provide more coverage, but feel much lighter on the skin. The effect is stunning.

SEALED WITH A KISS: For lips, try Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin lipstick in Elegant Rouge ($29,. When applied with a light touch, the pretty shade is dangerously ripe, as if you have just returned from picking blackberries...or sucking blood.  Just dab it on and press your lips together.

CHEEKS: Rub the tiniest amount of this lipstick on your cheekbones for a barely there blush.

P.S. I heart this song:
