Soap fans who love Kelly Ripa as the naive and sexy Hayley Santos on All My Children now get to know her as herself on the popular morning talk show Live with Regis and Kelly. In both roles, the wide-eyed Ripa has a style all her own: an appealing blend of down-to-earth attitude and feminine wile. To try this fresh-faced look for yourself, just follow the advice of makeup artist Deborah Grayson. (See Deborah's list of recommended products to get the look.)
STEP 1 Apply black eyeliner around the entire eye. Underneath, from the middle to the end of the lower lid, use a sponge applicator to diffuse the eyeliner, so it appears slightly thicker.
STEP 2 Apply a golden coral shadow on lids and up to the brow bone.
STEP 3 To accentuate lovely brows, use a brow brush to apply a rich brown shadow to the eyebrow in short strokes. Make sure the color is well blended so the brows look natural.
STEP 4 Curl eyelashes (or apply false lashes for more drama). Apply several coats of mascara to top and bottom lashes.
STEP 5 Pat concealer under the eye and on any spots that may be uneven in color. (The skin around the nostrils usually needs coverage.)
STEP 6 Apply matte foundation to the entire face with a dry sponge. Follow by brushing on translucent powder. Using a large, fluffy brush blush, gently apply a small amount of powdered blush to the cheekbones in an upward, sweeping motion.
STEP 7 Outline the lips using a lip liner. Make sure to seal in the outer corners of the mouth with the pencil. This gives the lips extra definition and depth. Blend the liner up and into the lip to erase any signs of a definite line. On top of that, apply a pink-hued coral lipstick.
