How to recreate the makeup from the latest Hourglass Cosmetics campaign

The step by step way to achieve the look I created for the latest Hourglass Cosmetics campaign:

Base: Hourglass Fluid Veil - I mixed shades 0 and 1 for the alabaster of the models complexion. I concealed where necessary with Hidden Concealer in Pearl.
Blush: Use the bronze cream from the Illume Cream to Powder Bronze/Highlighter duo under the cheekbones to sculpt and add definition and then highlight with the champagne shimmer in a C shape from the top of the cheekbones to the browbones.
Powder: Using a light touch powder just down the T zone with Veil Invisble Powder in Transparent, to allow the glow from the cheeks to come through.
Eyes: Start by applying the light shade from the Visionaire duo in Suede all over the lid up to the crease. Using the darker shade from the same compact, shade from the inner corners of the crease all the way out to the edge of the browbone and blend thoroughly. Add more depth in the creaseline with the taupe shimmer shade from the Cashmere compact and use the matte bone shade on the browbones to feather all the colors together. Define the eyes with Calligraphy Liner in Ebony by tracing it along the upper and lower lashlines. Darken and soften the edges with the matte black from the Cashmere compact. Add two coats of Superficial Mascara in Carbon for long feathery lashes. Define the brows with the matte bone shade from the Cashmere compact and then brush through with a brow brush (if you have dark hair use the black shadow sparingly).
Lips: Define and fill in the lips with Trace Lipliner in Bare to give a lasting base and depth of color and then add a gorgeous sheen with new Prodigy Lipgloss in Eden.
