The Louis Vuitton brand supplies me with eye candy for days. The fashion, the bags, the advertisements, the shoes... I can't get enough. Last fall, the labels' spring 2012 fashion show forced me to add makeup to that long list.

The models strutted their stuff on the runway in ladylike pastel fashion and had the perfect makeup to compliment each look. I love this simple makeup look, especially for daytime, in the spring and summer months. Gorgeous skin, a "natural" flush, and lashes for days. It's so easy! Here's how:

Always prep your skin before your makeup. And make sure you exfoliate! It's a must for this look.

My winning combination for instant luminous skin is Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator + Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer.

{Estee Lauder Even Skintone Illuminator, $58.}

After washing your face, apply the illuminator and then let it dry. Follow with the tinted moisturizer, and don't forget your ears! The coverage is nice and sheer so you won't feel like your face will melt in the heat. However, the tinted moisturizer has more pigment than its competitors so you will also have great coverage when you leave your normal foundation/ base behind.

{Nars Tinted Moisturizer, $42.}

In a hurry? Add a squirt of the Estee Lauder Illuminator directly to the Nars Tinted Moisturizer in your hand and blend well. Both products are oil free, and the tinted moisturizer has SPF 30!

This makeup look is feminine and youthful. While it is a soft look, fuller eyebrows will add some structure to your face. Make sure you fill in and define yours with a brow pencil. (I like Diorshow Ultra Fine Precision Brow Pencil.) For a longer lasting look, follow with a clear brow gel.

On the runway, models wore lots of fake eyelashes. Try it for an evening out! For a more everyday look, try several coats of these:

To finish this Louis Vuitton inspired look, lightly dust your cheeks with a peachy blush and add a swipe of your favorite peachy nude lipgloss. If you have time, consider adding a light colored shimmer to the inside corner of your eyes. (Please note: shimmer is not glitter.)

Let's recap:
          1) Exfoliate
          2) Luminous skin
          3) Full Brows
          4) Lashes
          5) Touch of peach...

Hello Dollface!

Treat everyday like you are on the runway.
