Brandy's Makeup - Get the Look - iVillage Beauty Makeup Studio

With consummate style and poise, this teen idol sings, acts and dances. She also likes to have fun with makeup. With her brilliant smile and lovely features she can't really go wrong. Still, she knows the rules. When you accentuate your eyes, you keep your mouth subtle, and vice-a-versa. Marsha Shilko, national product training manager for Cover Girl, loves Brandy's clean and wholesome look. For this photo shoot, she used some of Cover Girl's newest and hottest makeup products.

STEP 1 Start with very clean skin and apply a light moisturizer. (If your skin is oily, like Brandy's, use an oil-free moisturizer.) Using your clean fingertip, dot an oil-absorbing liquid foundation onto your skin; blend with a clean sponge.

STEP 2 To set the makeup and prevent shine breakthrough, apply a translucent powder. Stroke the puff against the powder, then press and roll the puff against the skin. Look for a translucent shade that has a tone that matches your own skin tone.

STEP 3 Stroke a lavender eyeshadow stick across the eyelid, from the base of the lash to just above the crease of the eyelid. Then, with clean fingertips, stroke a very sheer pale but gold shade on the upper lid, stroking up towards the brow bone. Blend the two colors so there are no hard edges.

STEP 4 Using a black eyeliner, draw a line from the outer corners of your eyes to the center of the top and bottom lashes.

STEP 5 Fan the lashes as you apply mascara. First, take the lash applicator and press down on top of the lashes, then stroke the applicator up and through the lashes.

STEP 6 Apply a rose-toned blush to the apple of the cheeks and slightly back towards the hair line.

STEP 7 Use a liquid lipstick with a stick applicator on the lips. Start in the center of lips and fill in as you move towards the edges.
