Things You'll Need

Prepare your skin. Before applying makeup, it is essential that you cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin. Cleanse your skin using a gentle cleanser and then towel-dry your face. Follow up with your favorite toner. Finish up by applying an illuminating moisturizer. This will give your skin a glow. Hurley is a fan of Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Cream. Allow 10 minutes for the moisturizer to absorb into your skin before your proceed to the next step.

Apply foundation. Dot the foundation onto your forehead, cheeks, nose and skin. Use a foundation brush, a damp sponge or your fingers to blend the foundation into your skin. After your foundation is completed decide whether you need extra coverage in specific areas. Once your concealer is complete, apply a light layer of loose powder to set your makeup.

Create a smoky eye. Apply a light layer of concealer to your eyelids before applying your shadow. This will serve as an eye shadow base. Apply a tan eye shadow as a wash over your eyelids. Use a shade that is 2 shadows darker than your base to contour your eye. Apply it generously from the outer corner or your eyelid and blend the two colors together using a blending brush.

Add the finishing touches to your eyes. Once your eye shadow is complete, line your eye with eyeliner. Once the eyeliner is on, use a smudge brush to soften it and to create a smoky look. Curl your eyelashes with an eyelash curler. Finish up with a coat of mascara. Hurley likes to use Estee Lauder’s Lash XL Maximum Length Mascara.

Get the glow. If you would like a little bit of a sun-kissed glow, apply a light layer of bronzer onto your face. Blend it into your other face makeup so there are no harsh lines. Finish by adding a sweep of blush to the apples of your cheeks.

Create the pout. Line your lips using a semi-nude lip liner. Use a lip brush to blend the liner into your lips. You want the liner to serve as a barrier so that your lip gloss does not smudge. Once that is complete, apply a coat of nude pink lip gloss. Elizabeth Hurley is a fan of Estee Lauder Pure Crystal Lip Gloss in Ginger Fizz.


  • Gently smudge your eyeliner with the smudge brush. If you smudge it a little too much and the color isn’t as dark as you’d like it to be, apply a new coat of eyeliner and smudge again.
