Miley Cyrus and Christina Aguilera, get out your notepads cause it's time to take some notes! Let these photos of Jennifer Garner teach you that you don't need 10 coats of mascara (yeah you, Miley) or enough makeup to scare a drag queen (yep, we're talking to you, Christina) to bring the sex kitten to the red carpet.
Mrs. Affleck wowed last night at the Draft Day premiere in a palette of pretty pinks. With "lit from within" flushed cheeks, shimmery pink eye shadow and glossy pink lips, the 41-year-old gave us major makeup envy.
Try the Look: To get Jennifer's radiant complexion, start with a brightening and exfoliating mask like Decleor Life Radiance Flash Mask. Follow with a brightening and hydrating moisturizer like Jurlique Bright Day Moisturizer.
Once moisturizer has absorbed, pat on brightening primer like Jane Iredale Facial Primer & Brightener. Then with fingertips or a foundation brush, apply a light to medium coverage foundation or BB cream. Tip: Make foundation look airbrushed by lightly dampening a makeup sponge and blotting entire face.
After hiding any darkness under eyes with concealer, prep upper eye area with concealer or primer. Apply a matte bone colored eye shadow on entire upper eye area and then apply a pale matte pink eye shadow like NYX Nude Matte Shadow in Birthday Suit to the lids.
Using a contour brush dipped in a shimmering pink eye shadow like Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Woodstock, make a V-shape with the outer half of your creases and the outer corners of your eyes. Then, with a small eye brush, apply a shimmering pearl eye shadow like L'Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Pro Eye Shadow Single in Frosted Icing to the inner corners of the eyes. Blend entire eye area like crazy.
Next, use a black eyeliner pencil to line the outer three-fourths of the upper lash line. Follow with two to three coats of volume-building mascara.
To copy Jennifer's "lit from within" flushed cheeks, apply a sheer, bright pink cream or gel blush like Topshop Blush in Afternoon Tea with your fingertips or a blush brush to the apples of the cheeks. Pull blush upwards towards your temples to give your face extra lift.
To get Ms. Garner's pink pucker, start by exfoliating lips with a sugar scrub or your toothbrush. Then, line and fill in entire lips with a neutral-colored lip liner. Complete this look by applying a hydrating, shimmering pink lip gloss like Burt's Bees Lip Gloss in Rosy Dawn.
We hope that Jennifer's "less is more" look starts a trend among the ladies of young Hollywood. After all, she didn't get to be Mrs. Affleck with layers of contour powder and fake lashes. Now if only there was a beauty product to copy those dimples...
