Default How to re-create this look?

I would appreciate any suggestions on how to achieve this look [lipstick, blush, etc.]:

In case you're curious, here are pics of me:

Thanks for any suggestions!

bg, you are absolutely GORGEOUS!

but, i'm sorry to say, that it's hard for someone with brown eyes to carry off that pink eye shadow because it'll make you look like you've been crying.

let me poke around the MAC site for something suitable. if only one could still get Surprint Sepia eyeshadow - it's a brown peach shade that would work really well for that look.

i'll get back to you.

these MAC products would probably give a close approximation:

Jest eyeshadow - a soft golden pink that i LOVE
Blushbaby blush - one of the new sheertone blushes - goes on sheer and can be layered [it feels like silk!]
Skew lipstick - blot and use clear gloss or something peachy or pink over it

if you want to wear some eyeliner, a soft, shimmery brown like Teddy on the outer corners of the upper lids only.

I SO wish I had blue eyes. I am so jealous of women with porcelain pink-undertoned skin [mine is olive], dark hair, and blue eyes. oh well.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll definitely check them out. The only MAC make-up I have is the blush in Cute and the lipstick in Craving. I like the Select foundation in NC15 too. It's a great match.
