Step 1. Start off with a dewy foundation. Try an illuminating formula like Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. Apply a soft pink blush to the apples of the cheeks and blend in well so the color is subtle and natural. Prime the eyelids with concealer or eye primer.

Step 2. Use a white eyeliner like Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Yeyo to fill in the entire eyelid as well as line the upper and lower waterlines. Blend in well up to the crease with flat shadow brush.

Step 3. Dust a white shimmery shadow like L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Eye Shadow Singles in Frosted Icing on the entire lid up to the crease.

Step 4. Curl the lashes and apply a curling mascara to the top and bottom lashes. Grab a highlighting powder like Urban Decay Naked Illuminated and brush it along the top of the cheekbones. FInish off the look with a pale pink lip color like Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Native. Give it a glossy finish by topping it off with a nude lip stain or gloss.
