Emily Deschanel at Arcona Launch Party for Book, Eco-Beautiful

makeup artist Spencer Barnes gave Emily Deschanel a fresh, glowing look for her attendance at wednesday night's ARCONA launch party for Eco-Beautiful: A Guide to Natural Beauty & Wellness authored by celebrity makeup artist Lina Hanson. the event was held at Vie Eco Boutique in west hollywood and featured ARCONA mini facials, as well as eco-friendly makeovers (sounds so divine, doesn't it...?).

Spencer played up Emily's gorgeous sea green eyes by creating a subtle smoky, yet luminous, look. he kept the rest of her face neutral and fresh, with a hint of a raspberry cheek and sheer raspberry shimmer on her lips. the overall look was inspired by Emily's vibrant vintage dress and her own natural, glowing skin.

here's how how the look was achieved:

skin: Spencer prepped Emily's skin by first cleansing it with ARCONA's Triad Pads. he then spritzed ARCONA's Mineral Magic and applied ARCONA's Magic White Ice to hydrate her skin thoroughly.

foundation: Spencer kept Emily's foundation to a minimum, only evening her skin with Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals in Latte. he set her foundation with ARCONA's Sunsations Mineral Makeup in Almond for a healthy-looking, radiant finish.

undereye: Spencer dabbed a bit of ARCONA's Peptide Eye Serum to retain moisture.

eyeshadow & liner: Spencer created Emily's subtle, smoky eye look beginning with a neutral bronze shimmer (Nvey Eco Organic Eye Shadow 167), topped with Jane Iredale Eye Shadow in Cloud Nine (a trio of shimmery purple and lavenders) on her lid. he then lined her eyes with Inika Mineral Eyeliner Midnight Blue, smudging Brown Nvey Eco Organic Cake Eyeliner.

mascara: for seductively lush and lengthy lashes, Spencer applied Korres Natural black mascara.

lips: Spencer added a hint of raspberry color with Aveda Sheer Mineral Lip Color in Rhubarb 601.
