It is her birthday after all.

In keeping with her natural, beachy style, Lively keeps her skin free from layers of heavy makeup and opts for a light-coverage base. This compact-meets-foundation from Lancôme offers something totally new and revolutionary – a “cushion” that’s soft to the touch and contains water-light fluid. Perfectly portable, it blurs like a BB cream and provides buildable, natural-looking coverage.

Let your eyes sparkle by adding a shimmery pink shadow to your lids, the inner corners of your eyes, and along your lower lash line. This helps create the illusion of bigger, brighter eyes, whilst perfectly complementing your pretty pink cheeks and lips.

Define your eyes and add some subtle sophistication by smudging your kohl liner along your top and lower lash lines. When added to your sparkly pink shadow, it softens the effect but still helps your peepers to pop.

Further accentuate your eyes with a few coats of this lash-loving mascara. Be sure to apply to the lower lashes too like Lively, as this will create a bigger contrast against the sparkly pink and will give you that extra va-va-voom.
