    Best Beauty Buys...Gemma Ward/Prada

    Today's beauty inspiration is none other than the ethereal Gemma Ward. This picture of Gemma which we stumbled across from an old Prada show was so glowing with light that we had to use it as our beauty inspiration. 

    To recreate this looks quickly with inexpensive beauty products, use:

    All available at Rite Aid and/or

    Face: Almay Face Brightener - $11, Covergirl Clean Fragrance-Free Foundation - $5, L'Oreal Feel Natural Light Softening Powder Blush (in Charmed Peach) - $7

    Eyebrows: e.l.f. Professional Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara - $1

    Eyes: e.l.f. Professional Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara - $1, Rimmel Eyeful Eye Glistener (in Straight Laced) - $7.50, Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Duo (in Fairy Dust 40) - $8.50

    Lips: e.l.f. All Over Color Stick (in Pink Lemonade or Persimmon) - $1

    Application: Moisturize face with...moisturizer (what else?) Lightly apply foundation to entire face. Lightly apply brightener to entire face. Brush blush onto the apples of your cheeks, then very lightly to entire cheek. Brush eyebrows with brow mascara. Lightly line eyes with glistener. Brush on one coat of clear mascara to eyelashes. Brush darker shadow over eyelid, eye crease, right below the brow bone, and on lower lash line. Dab lighter shadow onto the inside corners of your eyes. Blend slightly into the other darker shadow. Lightly apply color stick to your lips (if using Persimmon, lightly dab color onto temples and apples of your cheeks with your forefinger). Hint: This look IS meant to be luminescent, but don't overdo the glow! Make sure that you catch the light, but don't shine brighter than the light! Turn of the lights to test the magnitude of your shine.
