Ylona Garcia's makeup for the recent Star Magic Ball was, in one word, flawless. It was natural and youthful with the slightest touches of shimmer in all the right places. And lucky for you, we got an exclusive rundown of everything that her makeup artist Anthea Bueno used to achieve the look!
For foundation, Anthea used her usual combo for Ylona's skin–a sheer foundation that gives a dewy and almost candlelit effect, a touch of bronzer, and a golden highlighter for the highest points of the face.

The eye makeup involved only a light wash of color all over the lids. Anthea used a cream to powder eyeshadow with gold and pink flex (a product that she swears works well on all skintones) and a rose gold eyeshadow stick for the inner corners. She then lined Ylona's eyes lightly, then made it look invisible by applying false individual lashes on the upper and lower lashline. For the brows, a tinted brow mascara did the trick.

Ylona's lips may have looked almost bare, but it took a good cocktail of products to get that look. A nude pink lip liner for the base and two nude lipsticks over it were the recipe for her perfect pink pout.
