Rose Rules Bag Preview's blooming November cover look.

We're head over heels for the ultra-femme pink and lilac look on Preview's November 2008 cover, showcased by none other than fresh-faced beauty Heart Evangelista.


Try your hand at the flushed romantic face by using soft, vintage-y shades of pink, old rose and violet, while playing with shimmer and contour to bring it into the now.


DEWDROPS
To get a dewy canvas to start, even skin out with a light-handed application of powder foundation. Dab liquid foundation on the forehead, cheekbones, nose bridge and chin afterwards and blend with a sponge, ensuring seamless and creaseless edges.


FAIRY DUST
Sweep a dusting of shimmery lilac or baby pink shadow over the lid and define by completely rimming upper and lower lashlines with black eyeliner. Reinforce by applying a deep plum shadow over the line (a wet brush gives more intense color). Slightly extend this towards the outer corners to open up your orbs.


Using a medium purple-brown shadow—mauve works best—contour ever so subtly from the eye sockets to the sides of the nose bridge to create deep-set drama and to anchor all the girly shades of pink and purple. Lashes are curled, curled, curled: two coats of black mascara wiggled onto the upper and lower fringe complete the smoky yet sweet eye.


PINCH ME PRETTY
Complement pastel peepers with a youthful pink blush. Choose a light, powdery pink with an almost translucent finish and concentrate color on the whole fleshy part of the cheeks instead of just the apples; a barely-there smattering of product buffed onto cheeks pulls off the coveted virginal flush.


AIR KISSES
Lips are left nearly bare save for a light layer of frosted pink gloss applied sparingly over regular lip balm. Concentrate the product on the upper lip's bow and on the middle of the lower lip for a fuller approach to a flirty yet classy pucker. Bright purple polish completes the beautiful, duochromatic look and pulls the gorgeous floral outburst together.
