Hey, Tori Spelling! May We Suggest a Beauty Make-Under?

Our beloved tv star is wearing makeup that’s a little heavy. Here’s how we suggest to lighten it up a little.

Before you get upset with me, please know that I adore actress/author/reality star Tori Spelling. I lived for 90210, I watched So NoTORIous, I even watched her other reality television show with husband Dean McDermott. But when I spotted this and another photo of the tv star with a slightly heavy-handed makeup look at this recent book signing, I thought it might be time to reach out and suggest how to tone it down a bit:

Hi, Tori. Loving the choppy bob and the hair color! Gorgeous blonde. Yeah, so here’s the thing: the full-on evening makeup for a children’s book singing is probably a little heavy. You’ve got such pretty features, and if you’re rocking a full red carpet look that’s one thing; but heavy mascara, a sculpted cheek and fully lined, filled-in lips might be a tad much for this kind of event.

Like, instead of the multiple layers of mascara, how about a great volumizing and lengthening mascara that could build them more naturally, like CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion? Even though the top has some silver embellishment, go for a palette of nudes to make your brown eyes really pop, like Urban Decay Naked Palette. Then use a great cheek stain for a pretty look, like Tarte Cheek Stain in Blushing Bride and finish the lip look with a great pinkish-nude lip for day, like bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipcolor in Gingersnap. You’ll look fresh and perfect for low-key activities and you can save more dramatic looks for red carpet premieres.

What do you think? Do you think Tori’s look is fine for a book signing or does she need to adjust the lighting on her vanity? Vote now!
