Melissa Ordway Premieres Her Film "The Last Song"


Last week I had the privilege to work on Melissa Ordway for the first time (she stars as Ashley in Disney's new film The Last Song as well as on Melrose Place) and she's as lovely as she is talented! She asked for a California beachy look for her make-up so here's exactly what products I used:

Dior Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Foundation in Sand 031
Mark Get Bright Hook Up Highlighter in Natural (under her eyes)
Youngblood Mineral Rice 100% talc-free Setting Powder in Medium (Youngblood is the cult obsession mineral make-up line that I discovered at Henri Bendel's last month and fell in love with)

NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna (in hollows of cheeks, on the temples, across the hairline and under jawline, after the face is powdered)
