Step 1: Use a blending brush to apply a nude shadow primer on eyelids to create a smooth surface and allow shadow colors to vibrantly pop.

Step 2: Press a loose mineral eyeshadow in Hemlock with a blending brush. This technique provides maximum color coverage and allows you to soften edges for ethereal look.

Step 3: With a detail brush, apply a pressed mineral eyeshadow in Paloma into the crease of the eye, then diffuse the edges with a clean blending brush.

Step 4: Using a detail brush, apply the Paloma shadow as an eyeliner on the lower lash line.

Step 5: Dip an a Sand-colored liquid eye liner in a Dazzling Blue loose mineral eyeshadow and line upper lash line.

Step 6: Apply a brunette-colored loose mineral brow power to brows with an angle shading brush, then sweep through brows with a clear brow gel to groom and define.

Step 7: Starting on the apple of the cheeks, use an angle brush to apply loose mineral blush in Cayenne and blend toward the back of the cheekbones.

Step 8: Add a subtle cheek highlight by using the side of a large fluff brush to apply loose mineral highlighter. Then use the tip of the brush to create a soft halo effect.

Step 9: Use a lip brush to line and fill lips with watermelon-shaded lipstick. Add pink lip gloss to the center of lips to create a perfect pout.

Step 10: Finish the look with setting spray.
