Jessica Alba Giving Tips
She added, “My #1 tip is always to make sure your face is prepped and ready to go – hydration is 🔑. One of my fave tricks is to apply eye patches and then start glam w your eye makeup so the patches catch anything that falls. Don’t be scared to go in with different eyeshadow shades, it will create a dope texture. TIP – use a pencil eyeliner (s/o @honest_beauty vibeliner) on your inner water line and under your eyes to bring a bit of dimension and give it a smokey feel. Don’t forget mascara!”
Alba continued, “FACE – moisturize and contour, baby!
To help wake up your eyes, start with the @honest_beauty Honestly Bright Eyes followed by CCC all over the face. Use a darker shade of the CCC to contour and then set it with the Luminizing Glow Powder in the shade dusk reflection. If you’re into a bit of highlight, go back in with the powder in the shade midnight to accentuate your features. Last step – apply blush to the apples of your cheeks for a natural flush.”

The actress ended her lengthy message by writing, “& viola! Happy (almost) NYE, fam 🎉🍾 As I like the say, the best is yet to come… 🤍”
