Susan Lucci's Makeup - Celebrity Get the Look - iVillage Beauty

Susan Lucci has played Erica Kane on the daytime drama All My Children for more than 20 years -- which you would never know from her flawless, radiant skin and youthful, elegant style. (Even when she's playing tragedy, she's sexy.) You can achieve her sultry and luminous makeup look by following the advice of makeup artist Deborah Grayson. (See Deborah's list of recommended products to get the look.)

STEP 1 Start with the eyes, so if your eye makeup falls onto your cheek, it's not a disaster! Using a sharpened eye pencil in black, line both eyes entirely, including inside the upper and lower lids. Carry the lines out past the corner of your eye, just the slightest touch, in a little cat's eye point.

STEP 2 Apply an ivory-colored shadow to your lids up to the crease using a brush or sponge applicator. Using a flat, round eyeshadow brush, apply a gray-black, smoky shadow to the crease only.

STEP 3 Curl lashes. Apply two coats of black mascara to upper and lower lashes.

STEP 4 On a clean and moisturized face, pat concealer under the eyes, around the nostrils and where needed. Next, apply a light application of a sheer-finish foundation using your fingers or a sponge. Don't press it too hard onto the skin; lay it smoothly on the surface. Follow with a light dusting of loose powder to set your makeup.

STEP 5 To achieve Susan's sexy flush, apply a creamy pale rose blush to the apples of your cheeks with a sponge or your fingers. Make sure you use a very light touch and apply the blush sparingly. Build the color slowly until you get the desired effect.

STEP 6 Line your lips using a berry-colored lip pencil. On top of that, apply a high-shine lip gloss in ruby red.
