Fabulous Friday:

This is a picture of Bridgette Wilson-Sampras from InStyle magazine a few years ago. I love working with Bridgette, besides the fact that she's my dear friend, she has an amazing face to work with.

Getting a glamorous look doesn't mean that you have to wear a lot of makeup. Like in this look, we wanted elegant, sophisticated, timeless beauty. 

We kept the eyes softly defined using a gold sheen eyeshadow across the lid using the clean sweep method and under the bottom lash line on the inside corner, a medium brown matte shadow above the crease, and under the outside corner of the bottom lash line. 

I applied a very thin liner close to the top lashes so that it doesn't look like eyeliner, this makes your eyelashes look thicker. Finish the eye by curling your lashes and applying a light coat of mascara. Remember, keep it soft.

I used a rosy red lipstick to add a little bit of drama. After you define and fill in your lips, take a q-tip and roll it over the outer edge of your lip color. This will smooth out the lip line and ensure classic elegance.
