This first reader-requested Him-spired look comes from Sue Lynn who nominated Leonardo DiCaprio. He shot to fame in 1997 for his role in "Titanic" but I remember him the most in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape", "Romeo + Juliet", "Catch Me If You Can", and "Blood Diamond". While he was quite a cutie in his younger years, he's not aging gracefully. Fortunately, his acting more than makes up for it.
Inspiration, tutorial and product listing after the jump!
It's obviously not a recent picture but it's uber sexy. Hee hee
Leo is well known to be an environmental activist and actively dating supermodels. Thus, for this look, I wanted to incorporate Leo's love for the environment and supermodels... Green was the color of choice for the eyes and I gave the skin a healthy golden glow. It's a very simple look!

I've just reformatted my computer so I've not installed a video editing software. Will upload the vid tutorial soon!
Apply a golden illuminizer all over the face as a base. Pay more attention to highlighted areas such as the cheeks, forehead and chin to bring your features out.
Apply a peach/salmon concealer to correct dark eye circles and conceal with a skin-colored concealer. Don't go too heavy with the concealer if your foundation is going to be light or the texture may look obviously different from the rest of your face.
Buff on mineral powder foundation. The light reflecting particles in the illuminating base applied earlier would have helped to camouflage minor imperfections so a heavy foundation wouldn't be necessary.
With your finger, apply an olive green cream eyeshadow over lid prepped with eyeshadow primer. It'll act as a base to help the glitter eyeshadow show up and stick better. Apply a medium green glitter eyeshadow over the cream base with a flat eyeshadow brush (Stila #30) using patting motions.
Take a fluffy crease brush (Stila #30) and apply a burnt orange/copper color into the crease and blend it over where the green shadow stops. Using a small contour brush, apply a golden brown eyeshadow along the lower lash line.
Apply a frost off-white eyeshadow on the brow bone as highlight using a large eyeshadow brush. Blend over the highlight with the fluffy crease brush.
Apply a black liquid/gel liner of choice thinly and create a small wing. Get some green glitter eyeshadow and go over the liner. Fill in your brows lightly but neatly. Finally, curl your lashes and apply mascara.
You may wanna use some tape to remove glitter fall outs
Apply a warm peach blush following the contour of your cheek, using a small duo fiber brush (188 dupe by Silk Naturals)
Highlight the cheekbones with a glow powder (Waffle Cone) and blend excess into the blush
Apply a shiny nude lipgloss
Hope you liked this look! Can you guess which nominated guy is next?
