An Exclusive Tropical Beauty Look from William Murphy

William Murphy, the makeup artist for our cover story shot in Palm Beach, creates an exclusive look for Elite Traveler readers to try out on their next tropical vacation. Here, a subtle eye with an expressive lashline lets a bold, flirty lip color do all the talking.

To achieve the look, start with clean and perfect-looking skin by using Clé de Peau Radiant Fluid Foundation. It evens out skin and has a glowing finish, as well as broad spectrum SPF24, which makes it great for everyday use. Next, sweep Guerlain Terracota Original Bronzing Powder over cheeks, forehead and chin. For the eyes, apply a subtle smokey eye in the traditional shape using Surratt Beauty Artistique Eyeshadow in Ombré. Apply over the entire lid and blend up to the crease. Finish the eyes with two coats of Dior Diorshow Extase Mascara in black on both top and bottom lashes. For a hit of beautiful color, apply Rodin Luxury Lipstick in Tough Tomato, blot and reapply to intensify the color and be sure that it lasts through the night.
