Stefania points out: “For this tutorial the attention is on the lips. We  will do neutral eyes, really natural looking,”

She begins to work on Theresa’s eye. We use a stick on shadow shield so that eye shadow will not drop. Check out how they work here!
Start with a nude color beige, orange and brown on the edge of the eye.
We focus on the eyebrows next.
Stefania says “They say the eyebrows are the frame of your face so it is important to define them to open the eyes,”
Stefania uses ‘Benefit’ highlighter;  she says: “I got it from Sephora! When it is your birthday – they give you free stuff!”
After highlighter we line the eye with a dark pencil – although not too dark!
We work on the lips next: red lips. One of Stefania’s greatest red lip tips is that it is important to line the lips first with a red pen – which will prevent the lipstick from bleeding.

“They say working with red lips is the hardest…” –  Stefania Serna

The base of the lips is next:  We put powder on the lips and then we put the lipstick again so it lasts longer.
Stefania does eyes first and foundation, and lips after.
Because I had a breakout on my chin we used a Chanel cover up – which Stefania says has great coverage.
She tells me “It’s summer and you do not want to have heavy makeup,”
Next we put bronzer. We want to look tanned.
Afterward, we put highlight down the middle of the nose and we highlight brow bones.
Blush is next, keeping in mind we have neutral eyes.
Stefania’s expert red lip tip: “Remember we put powder on the lips? … Now we re-apply the color to make it last,”
Stefania says ‘Rouge’ from Chanel a beautiful color.
Now you can add your lashes, and this completes the Look!
