People are still buzzing about how great Michelle Obama looked at the Mexico State Dinner last week. She radiated beauty in her sparkly blue Peter Sorenen gown, and her makeup was flawless.

To replicate the first lady’s fresh-faced look for yourself, here are some great products to use and you won’t need the White House budget to own.

The first lady’s personal makeup artist, Ingrid Grimes-Myles, admits Michelle has great skin. “She takes good care of herself and her beautiful skin is a direct result of that investment,” she has said. To mimic her flawless complexion, try MAC’s Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 foundation ($29.50,





blush2. Cheeks
To have a cheerful look like Michelle, you must draw attention to your cheekbones. A light pink color is perfect for summer, and adds to a beachy glow. Maybelline Expert Wear Blush in Pinch o’ Pink ($4.49, is the perfect shade and looks just like Michelle’s blush. Remember to smile when applying to ensure you highlight the apples of your cheeks.

Michelle is known for her highly arched brows that never have a stray hair out of place. Using a pencil like Rimmel’s Professional Eye Brow Pencil ($3.49,, they’ll help you to achieve the arch you want, thanks to the attached brow brush. A helpful tip: spray a little hairspray on your brow brush before arching your brows – that way, every hair will stay in place all day and night.

Mrs. O’s look really focuses in on the eyes, where you can spot a blue glitter eyeshadow, black liner, and some mile-high eyelashes. To copy her sparkly blue lids, Urban Decay has a great Stardust eye shadow in Atmosphere ($20,, a turquoise blue shade. Apply this to your lids, and rim your upper and lower lash line with a black liner like Essence Eyeliner Pen ($2.49, Then, create mega volume lashes with the best volumizing mascara for less, CoverGirl’s Lash Blast mascara ($6.54,




revlon lip gloss5. Lips
Last but not least, Michelle keeps her pout camera-ready with a light pink gloss that’s super shiny. Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Slip into Pink ($9.99, will give you the same high-shine effect. A light color on the lips will keep the focus on the eyes, which is exactly what Michelle was going for!

  1. God im sick of hearing about her..its like the only thing she’s recognized for is how good she looks ‘all the time’…barf. Get a life “mrs. o”

  2. re: comment by WikkidLilGrrrl: If you resent hearing about how good “Mrs.O” looks all the time, complain about the media, not “Mrs O”.(she’s not writing these articles) I too would like to see more recognition of her accomplishments, although, I do also enjoy seeing that she respects her role by being the best she can be. ….”Barf” if you must on the media

    FYI Faye Brennan: Noticed you imply in this article that the White House pays for Mrs Obama’s makeup etc. This is untrue! First Ladies are responsible for the cost of ALL of their own beauty products,make-up artist, clothing etc.

  3. “Mrs.O” is so beutiful and awesome oh and she does have a life if you havn’t noticed “Wikkidlilgrrrl” she is the first lady and she has a better life than you do.
