The stars turned out last night for the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards ceremony. There were several great looks, but Mandy Moore’s simple, elegant dress paired with bright pink makeup really impressed us.
A high ponytail like Mandy’s can put the focus on what you’re wearing, but it also calls attention to your face. When you have your hair slicked back so severely, it’s key to have a fresh face and soft makeup look so you don’t look harsh. Mandy definitely succeeded!
Step 1: Line the upper and lower outer corners of your eye with a dark brown pencil, like Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Liner in Spiced Chocolate ($7.49, Neutrogena.com).
Step 2: Sweep a soft taupe shadow onto your lids, like L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Endless Pearl ($7.95, Lorealparisusa.com).
Step 3: Line the upper and lower inner corners of your eyes with a silver liner, like Physician’s Formula Eye Definer Automatic Eye Pencil in Charcoal Grey ($5.50, Physicansformula.com). Finish off the eyes with a coat of your favorite dark mascara.
Step 4: For those perfectly pink cheeks, use a bright color, like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends in Pure ($11.49, Neutrogena.com).
Step 5: Finish the look with a bright pink lipstick, like MAC lipstick in Impassioned ($14.50, Maccosmetics.com), and a light layer of translucent powder.
