To brighten the eye area, Joanna used the Legacy Eye Treatment Duo, which is infused with crushed pearl and has an applicator that gently massages the delicate skin under the eye to reduce any puffiness.

Kaitlyn Dever's soft glam and nude lip.

For her eyes, she used Color Chalk in “Hopscotch” and “Double Dutch.” Fiona started with Hopscotch on the lid and Double Dutch in the crease for depth. She then used Infinity Longwear Eyeliner in “Outer Space” and “Limitless” along the lash lines to define the eyes.

Kaley Cuoco's elegant low knot with fringe perfectly complemented her bold dress.
