As I saw this photo come across my blog roll this morning I immediately screamed "YES MA'AM". Nicole Richie looks absolutely stunning.
To recreate Nicole's makeup you can simply take apply an eyeshadow to your lid that is similar to your skin tone with a slight shimmer. Go for a satin finish shadow and not a frost. Use a soft brown liner with a bit of shimmer on the upper and lower lash line and smudge it in. I would use "Teddy" eye kohl by M.A.C.
