Jessica Alba's Makeup - Celebrity Get the Look

Blessed with naturally full lips, flawless skin and large wide-set eyes, exotic beauty Jessica Alba doesn't need much enhancement, and she knows it. That's why this former Dark Angel keeps her everyday look light and natural, using neutrals and sheer colors to highlight her prominent features. If you love Jessica's pretty and polished air, then follow these simple steps from celebrity makeup artist Shefton McLeod to make it your own.

STEP 1 Begin with freshly cleansed and moisturized skin. Moisturizer helps foundation glide on smoothly and creates a supple, dewy look. Apply a sheer layer of foundation to your skin with your fingertips, working outward toward your hairline.

STEP 2 If any blemishes or redness are still visible, only then apply concealer. Lightly dab on with a brush and blend by pressing gently with the ball of your ring finger.

STEP 3 Create an extra "glow" with a cream bronzer. Using a small, stiff brush, apply bronzer to cheekbones, the bridge of the nose and along the hairline and chin. Soften the edges with your fingers until well blended.

STEP 4 Gently apply translucent powder into a puff, then press into the T-zone and touch lightly over the rest of your face. Brush off any excess powder with a large, fluffy blush brush.

STEP 5 Lightly moisten a dark-colored cake eye shadow and, using a flat liner brush, press the eye shadow into the eyelash base on top and bottom, beginning at the outer corner.

STEP 6 Apply a neutral cream eye shadow to the center of the eyelid and blend out to the edge of the lid using a sponge-tipped applicator. Using a soft, fluffy brush, apply a powder shadow in a similar color to the center of the lid.

STEP 7 Lightly enhance the apples of the cheeks with a sheer pink blush, using a brush to blend color back and up to the hairline.

STEP 8 Line lips with a nude-colored pencil and blend into lip with a lip brush. Top that with a sheer peach- or pink-colored gloss, and blend.

STEP 9 To shape and control unruly brows, coat them with brow gel and apply light touches of brow powder with a small brush to conceal any thin areas.

STEP 10 Completely line inner rim of eyes with a dark kohl pencil, beginning at the outside corners. Apply it from base to tip.

STEP 11 Define but don't curl lashes with a lash-building mascara.
