Let’s face it, sometimes looks shown on the runway are less than wearable. Beautiful? Yes. Artistic? Absolutely. Appropriate for a Friday night pizza date? Rarely. Thankfully, Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer shared some expert beauty tips with us. And since we love you modern girlies, we’re going to share the how-to with you!

Fit Me! Foundation: Charlotte uses her fingers to work this lightweight base into the skin. “Massage foundation into the face the same way you would apply facial moisturizer. This creates the most natural effect,” she recommends. For a satin finish, Charlotte dusts Fit Me! Powder over the skin.

Dream Bouncy Blush in Coffee Cake: For a natural, understated flush, Charlotte blends this creamy gel formula into the apples of the cheeks.

Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black: Eyes are the focal point of this look and to achieve a graphic-inspired line, Charlotte extends two straight brush strokes acress the eyelid – the first drawn from the inner corner to the center of the eye, and the second starting at the center to just beyond the outer corner of each eye.

Eye Studio Master Shape Brow Pencil: Charlotte uses subtle, swift pencil strokes to create well-groomed brows. She is careful to keep them natural but not overly present.

Baby Lips SPF 20 Moisturizing Lip Balm in Quenched: In keeping with the overall “naturally pretty” vibe, Charlotte opts for a clean, moisturized lip.
