The Makeup: Even with a dramatic dress, the eyes can have a starring role. After Linter applied foundation to Sims's face, she dotted a highlighter on the apples of her cheeks and just above her cheekbones, and added coral cream blush. With a small brush, Linter applied concealer under Sims's eyes, then dusted a pale gold eyeshadow over her lids. She brushed a charcoal shadow on the crease and lined her upper lids with a black pencil, smudging a bit past the outer corners. A light pink lipstick is a flattering counterpoint to Sims's formal eye makeup.
