Walk This Way

Buffy Hernandez shows you how to achieve her runway-ready look.



1. SKIN CARE

I prepped the skin using ceramide toner, superstarter, and a lightweight moisturizer. The goal was to keep the skin hydrated so when you apply your foundation it will have a more supple and skin-like texture. I also used the ceramide eye capsules so that the concealer went on smoothly underneath the eyes.

2. FACE & CHEEKS

To achieve a natural, even skin tone, I used the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Foundation. For a more illuminating, natural flushed cheek, I applied the ceramide cream blush. Our model below, Alla, has an olive skin tone so the Nectar peach tone gave her a warmer glow.

3. LIPS

To achieve glowing, dewy skin we used 8 Hour Cream Skin Protectant and 8 Hour Hydrating Mist. I wanted a nude lip so I chose Plush Up Lip Gelato. It has a lightweight, soft texture but still makes your lips feel fuller. It's sheer and minimal with long-lasting wear. 

4. BROWS

Our brows were full and brushed out, enhanced by our Statement Brow Gel. Eyes were nude with a bold thick line and soft mascara. The liner was used to make more of a square with a thicker end, not the usual full wing. Either a smooth gel eye liner  or our liquid eye liner will do the trick.
