Simple look you can do with everything you already have!

Prime, foundation and concealer if needed.

Make a kissy face to see your natural cheek lines to follow. Line the sides of your nose with black shadow or smudged eyeliner. You can blend out so no worries of precision.

Add some shadow around your nostrils, chin and lips.

Highlight! Highlight apples of cheeks. bridge and tip of nose. chin, and on either side of your philtrum. You can use a white shadow, highlighter or white cream makeup. Blend with a sponge or finger.

A little blush. If it has shimmer that’s fine too so it will look a little glisteny like plastic. Try to shadow right below your apples in a small circle.

The lines. Use an eyeliner pencil, liquid liner or black cream makeup with a small brush. Add a teeny tiny bit of white highlight on each side to add dimension. You can blend a little shadow here too for more dimension.

Add the creepy freckles. Use an eyeliner pencil for the best dots. Brush some white cream under your eyes and brush over your lashes to whiten them. Line right below the white and draw lashes below. Brush back shadow into your brows if they are light. You can add fake lashes or just use a couple coats of regular mascara. I used the Younique 3D lashes.

Add some lip color and voila! Finished! I didn’t set with powder since I want some natural sheen as it sets. I will use a set spray (MAC Fix).

Here are the products and tools I used. Many can be substituted with what you already have. The theater cakes are waterproof and will last all day or night. wpid-20141027_123439.jpg

Black shadow is from the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette used on eyes and blending cheeks.
