Lightly Smoked – Create lightly smoked eyes with charcoal grey at the corners, a thin liner on the top lids, completed with a volume-effect mascara like Benefit’s They’re Real mascara.. Keep cheeks soft with light pink hues. For the lips, complement the lips or contrast with a fuschia red tone.
Starry Night – Use some dark liner and shadow for your eyes – charcoal grey or dark taupe always work well. Top with some glitter in rose gold or silver. Finish your look with deep, dark rose colored lipstick like Kiko’s Smart Lipstick in True Red..
Drama Queen – Make a grand entrance with dramatic eyes and lips. Opt for ruby toned shades for the eye shadow and explosive mascara to lengthen and add volume. Blur out the edges. Dust an oh-so-soft pink blush tint like Benefit’s Rose Tinted Lip & Cheek Stain – the tint is so natural and can be used on the lips as well. Finish with a lipstick shade of the deepest red rose.
Cat Eye – Add a soft color shadow on the lids as a base – from light rose, to violet and sky blue. Use one shade darker of your selected color, right at the edges. Outline the upper lids with a tight thin rim of contrasting black on the top and bottom. NAR’s Night Series Eyeliner will last all night. Complete with sun kissed, soft lip color.
Neutral – Neutral goes a long way. Bobbi Brown’s Cool Eye Palette features six shades that let you go from neutral to lightly smoked. Use an eyeliner for subtle definition at the edges. and complete with lengthening mascara. Dust the cheeks with light rose or soft bronze to give a natural just-kissed effect. Top off with a metallic rose lipstick.
Forever Bronze – Not just a summer look, the bronze look adds glamour, light and soft shine. Use the champagne and soft bronze colors on the lids, alternating between hues: darker at the corners and lighter as you move in. Guerlain’s Terracotta Light has a combination of five shades to accommodate both light and dark skin tones. Complete with nude gloss.
