Courteney Cox Arquette's Makeup - Celebrity Get the Look - iVillage Beauty Makeup Studio

Courteney Cox Arquette has evolved from one of the cute and coiffed Friends to a thoroughly modern and mesmerizing star. She has a clean contemporary look that is evident in all her style choices. Her makeup, hair and clothes reflect her love of understated elegance. To get Courteney's shimmering chic look, follow the expert advice of Bobbi Brown's global makeup artist Curtis Phelps.

STEP 1 Healthy, glowing skin is an important part of this look, so before applying any makeup be sure to use a hydrating moisturizer and eye cream. Apply a stick foundation to the skin by dotting lightly on the cheeks, forehead, nose and chin, and blend with your fingertips for a sheer, natural finish. To conceal under the eyes, use a stick foundation one shade lighter than your all-over color. Set the look by applying a little loose powder only under the eyes and down the center of the face.

STEP 2 To define the brow, use a brow brush to apply a warm brown shade to the eyebrow. Focus the color on areas where the brow is scant.

STEP 3 Using a shading brush, apply matte white shadow all over the eyelid. Use a shadow brush to apply a silvery shimmer to the lid, starting at the lash line and working into the crease. As a final touch, apply a soft gray shadow very lightly to the crease only and blend well.

STEP 4 To line the eyes, use a damp eyeliner brush and apply a charcoal shadow to both the top and bottom lashes. You want the eye to be completely lined from corner to corner. Apply thickening mascara to both the top and bottom lashes.

STEP 5 Warm the cheeks using a gel stick blush. Smile to find the apples of your cheeks. Apply color to this area, then use your fingertips to blend back and down over the cheekbones.

STEP 6 Apply a cream lipgloss in a warm maple color using a lip brush. Finish by lightly outlining your natural contour with a liner in a similar color to define and enhance the mouth.

STEP 7 To give your cheeks a modern high shine, warm a small amount of moisture balm between your fingers and gently tap along the cheekbones. The look is hydrated and glowing, not greasy.
