Get The Look: Bold and Glamorous...

Happy Friday everyone! In case you missed it, yesterday I shared a soft and feminine makeup look that typically is my go-to during the week. Today's look is bold and glamorous, not one I wear everyday, but perfect for a night out, a special event or anytime I'm wearing a red lip!

With this look, I like to use the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. I love this formula because it gives a little more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, but still doesn't feel cakey. It's soft and lightweight, almost blurring out any imperfections rather than masking them. The formula also has a slight sheen to it, which hydrates your face but doesn't make it look or feel shiny.

Below is a list of all the products I used to get this look. Let me know if you have any questions about any of the products used, or any application questions.


Foundation - Sheer Glow Foundation by NARS

Bronzer - Give Me Sun by MAC

Highlighter - Radiant Touch by YSL

Eye Shadow - Nude on Nude by Bobbi Brown (sold out, similar style here)

Eyeliner - 'Perfectly Defined' by Bobbi Brown

Mascara - Lash Domination by bareMinerals

Lip Pencil - Cherry by MAC

Lipstick - YSL Rouge Pur Couture #13

Gloss - AERIN



Foundation Brush – Chanel Blender Foundation Brush #7

Highlighter Brush - Bobbi Brown

Bronzer Brush - Bobbi Brown

*Tip: Most women steer clear of lip pencils, but to get a perfect line for a red lip, using a red liner is key! It's the only way I can get a flawless line on my lip, otherwise it gets super uneven and bleeds over from my lips onto my skin.

xo, Rach
