Watch Camille apply her go-to Maybelline products for the perfect "lifted" effect.

  1. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK LIFTED STEP 1: CREATE AN EVEN BASE

    Apply a matte foundation. Pick your most natural shade, and blend it into moisturized skin, pressing in color with a foundation brush or makeup sponge.

  2. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK LIFTED STEP 2: CREATE AN EYESHADOW BASE

    Apply a light pink eyeshadow. Blend the color all over the lids and apply a little bit above the eyelid crease.

  3. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK LIFTED STEP 3: OPEN & LIFT EYES WITH SHADOW

    Thompson completed the eyeshadow look with three pink/neutral shades from our Nudes of New York Eyeshadow Palette. First, blend Protector above the natural crease line, dragging color out and upwards. Then, apply Explorer at the outer edges of the crease to lift the eye shape up, and beneath the lash line again, blending color up towards where your brows end. Apply Dreamer in the center of the lids to create a bigger, more open-looking eye.

  4. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK LIFTED STEP 4: CREATE A CAT EYE

    Place an liquid eyeliner pen at a 45 degree angle to map out the eyeliner wing you want to draw on. Then, swipe the eyeliner along the upper lash line, winging out and up to create an upwards tilted cat eye.

  5. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK LIFTED STEP 5: ADD HEIGHT & VOLUME TO BROWS

    Give brows a bit of extra height and volume by brushing clear mascara through them in an upwards direction.

  6. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK LIFTED STEP 6: CONTOUR WITH CONCEALER

    Using a concealer a few shades darker than your skin tone, draw a line of contour just above your natural cheekbone, blending color in with a makeup brush.

  7. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK LIFTED STEP 7: ADD BLUSH

    Now apply a pop of creamy pink blush high up on the cheekbone and blend well. Camille actually uses our lip crayon for this!

  8. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK LIFTED STEP 8: ADD MORE LIFT WITH CONCEALER

    Using the concealer in a shade that matches your natural skin tone, apply concealer under eyes, swiping it upwards from the outer corners of the eyes.

  9. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK LIFTED STEP 9: LIFT LASHES WITH MASCARA

    Give those lashes lots of lift and bounce using Sky High mascara on the upper eyelashes.

  10. HOW TO MAKE YOUR FACE LOOK LIFTED STEP 10: SET MAKEUP

    Using a damp makeup sponge, press setting powder under eyes and along the cheekbone to soften away any contour lines. Camille uses our new banana powder!
