Moisturize your clean face before you put on any makeup. I wouldn't suggest tinted moisturizer as we're trying to keep the look very light and natural.
Apply a light concealer or highlighter to the inner and outer corners and underneath your eyes, as well as the sides of your nostrils and chin. I always use Yves St-Laurent Touche Eclat #2 in these areas and it certainly does the trick!
Apply a light powder foundation to your entire face to even out your skin tone and cover up any blemishes. I would suggest Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Loose Powder. Make sure you pick one out that is your exact skin tone or this look will not work.
Apply a matte neutral eyeshadow to your eyelids to strengthen the shape of your eyes. I use Stila in Rain and I think it's perfect. It's more on the yellow side than the pink side, so if you've got pink undertones in your skin, you may want to pick something like Stila in Dune. (seen below)
Line your upper lids with a soft black or charcoal pencil eyeliner and concentrate the volume on the outer corners. Make sure not to put it on too heavy and keep it very close to the lash line, we just want to define the eye. If you want to make an even softer look, smudge in the eyeliner very subtly with your fingers, but not too much or else it will look like you're wearing black eyeshadow. Try Maybelline LineExpress in Soft Black or Charcoal Grey.
Line the outer lower lid and top corner with a coffee/mocha coloured eyeliner. Make sure to connect the outer corners together and smudge it with your fingers upwards towards your eyebrows but don't go too dramatic as that's not what we're trying to achieve here. Again, I would use Maybelline LineExpress eyeliner in Bronze. I have this at home and it really makes my green eyes pop!
Curl your eyelashes with a heated or regular eyelash curler and hold it for a good 20 seconds. Next apply 3-6 coats of mascara, making sure you get every lash without getting it on your eyelid. If your eyelashes are particularly short or you want to get even more glamorous, use false eyelashes... but use them well!
Although I can't do anything about the size of your lips I can certainly tell you where to get the colour she is wearing on hers. Now in some pictures it looks like she's wearing fuchsia, and in others a deep crimson red. I can't tell which one I like most, so I'll find one somewhere in the middle.

Step 9- Finishing it off
Complete your look by sweeping your hair into a neat chignon. If you find your face is too dull for this look, trying brushing a light highlighting powder on your cheekbones, nose, chin and forehead bones to catch the light and give you a nice healthy glow. Make sure you have clean lines and accentuate the look by wearing sparkly diamond or cubic zirconia earrings and complimenting clothing.
Most stars pay up to $10K for a Red Carpet look such as this one. We have been able to achieve this look for about $150. If you already have similar products by the same or different brands (and you most likely do) then I would say you could probably achieve this look for about $30-$50.
