Skin Prep:
It’s important to take good care of your skin by cleaning your face and applying moisturizer for a seamless canvas. Mari recommends using Avene Skin Recovery Cream as a base. 

Step 1:
Mari applied Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen foundation with a beauty blender.

Step 2:
Naturally fill in the brows with Chanel Crayon Sculpting Brow Pencil in the color Brun Naturel. 

Step 3:
Take a blush brush or a kabuki brush and use it to apply a bit of Pat McGrath Skin Fetish highlighter in the colors Nude and Golden from your temples to the tops of your cheekbone in a C-shaped curve. You can apply one layer for a subtle effect or apply multiple layers for more intense highlights.

Step 4:
Apply silver eyeshadow (Mari used a silver from her Pat McGrath palette, but you can use whatever brand you have) to the top lid, and follow with a gold shade on the lower lash line. 

Step 5:
Line the top lash line with Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon.

Step 6:
Curl your natural lashes with a lash curler. Apply Cle De Peau Perfect Lash Mascara along with 10mm Mari Shten individual lashes to get that full bright eye look.

Step 7:
Finish your look with lining lips in Charlotte Tilbury in Pillow Talk and lightly gloss the lips with Chanel Plumping Gloss.

Continue the party with late-night drinks at Parker & Lenox, a speakeasy that regularly flies musicians in from New York or Buenos Aires to perform at weekends, and for salsa dancing, Club San Luis in Roma Sur is an experience in itself. It has a 20-piece live band, and the dancing is phenomenal.
