La Dolce Vita

A rosy complexion, bright eyes and a floral accent will help you get the Italian look of amore. Eyes: Using a concealer, cover those dark circles from too many nights out (it’s New York Fashion Week after all). Highlight interior corners with a illuminating pale pink while you dust your lids with a tawny brown. Face: Begin with a clean face, then apply a peony-pink blush from apples on up your cheek bones for a blooming look. Lips: Layer on two luscious colors atop each other and blend for the perfect just-bitten shade. Hair: For an ethereal look, add a charming handmade flower hairpin.
