Rohit Singh and Shabnam D’Souza of Shiseido worked mostly with waterproof products that wouldn’t smudge or run in water. They started by using a long-staying stick foundation, set it with loose powder and covered blemishes with a concealer pencil. The Sheer Shade Enhancer in bronze and the Luminizing Brush Powder gave Belen a sun-kissed look. Her eyes were done with Hydro Powder Eye Shadow in gold and aqua, while the Accentuating Eye Shadow in pink was used as a highlighter.
Then came a coat of Natural Finish Combing Mascara for glossy, smudge-proof lashes. Belen’s eyebrows were set with the waterproof Eyebrow Shaper in a translucent shade. Black kohl and a smudge-proof Eye Liner Pencil in a pink-silver shade were the finishing touches. Her lips were filled in with a neutral shade of Perfecting Lipstick and topped with a soft pink gloss. Her cheeks were brightened with bronze Accentuating Powder Blush. For the second look, the make-up artists transformed Belen’s eyes with the Accentuating Eye Shadow in a bright shimmery pink and lined her eyes with a violet shade of the Hydra Power Eye Shadow. A fresh pink shade of long-stay Accentuating Colour Stick was applied to her cheeks and a silvery nude shade of Shimmering Lipstick and a peach-coloured gloss completed the look
