Costello Tagliapietra
  
{Nails by CND}
To nail this look: Mix equal parts of CND Brilliant White with CND Silver Chrome, add a few drops of CND Bicyle Yellow and add half as few drops of CND Green Scene. Apple the mixed shade in one coat followed by CND Super Matte which will add a fun textured finish. 

 {Makeup by MAC}
To create the look: You will want to create the dewy look by evening out skin with a cream foundation and highlighting the very top of your cheekbones with a pearl. Blend Shimmermoss eye shadow on the lid up into the crease and then outward. Smudge over the bottom lash line. Use Opulash Mascara and really build it up on the bottom and top lashes three coats should do. Use a bright reddish orange lip liner along with Lady Danger Lipstick and of course a dab of clear gloss on the center of the bottom lip.


Jason Wu
 {Makeup by MAC}
To create this look: On the lower lash line as well as the crease, apply Marine Ultra Eye Pencil followed by Thru the Night Eyeshadow which you will blend outward then use Carbon Eyeshadow to blend downward. Highlight the center of the lid with Gold Glitter which you will then finish with Blacktrack Fluidline at the top lash line. The mascara that was used in Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara. The lips are  meant to be very neutral so remove any redness on the lip with foundation and then add Cream Color Base in Shell. Sweet your cheeks with a neutral blush.
