2. Use a brush to blend a shimmery lavender eye shadow from your upper lash line to just above the crease of your lid. With a liner brush, trace the same shade below your bottom lashes. (Although the purple you see here flatters every skin tone, if you’re pale—and a little color-shy—you can try a lighter shade.)

3. Apply two coats of mascara. A volumnizing formula will add the length and thickness you need to match the dramatic effect of the colorful shadow.

Complete the Look Blend a raspberry blush on the apples of your cheeks—make sure it’s matte (shimmer on your eyes and face is too much of a good thing). A bronze lipstick is a perfect complement to bold, color-saturated eye makeup…”

Always remember, makeup won’t fix problems with your skin, so it is still important to use a natural skin care regimen that will keep your skin looking smooth and glowing, and please don’t forget to wash any makeup off your face before you go to bed…
