Does your eyeshadow always seem to smudge and rub off before the afternoon hits? Makeup expert Bobbi Brown suggests you prime your lids with powder which gives the eyeshadow a foundation to rest on instead of just oily lids. "Powder shadows always last longer than cream shadows," says Brown. Choose your eyeshadow accordingly.
Deep-set eyes can be tough to make pop, but Cover Girl suggests using light-hued eyeshadows to highlight dark spots and make those peepers shine. Simply swipe a light shade like off-white or super-light pink across your lid and in the inner and outer corners of your eye.
Collier Strong, chief makeup artist at L'Oreal, suggests that creating the perfect smoky eye starts with the perfect eyeliner. Make sure the liner is soft to the touch and smudges easily. Line as close to the lashes as possible, then smudge with an eyeshadow brush, blending the liner into the skin.
All women can pull off red lips. It's just a matter of finding the right red, Clinique suggests. Determine if your skin has warm or cool undertones. Warm-skinned women with golden hues should choose a warm red lipstick. Cool-skinned women with pink hues should choose a cool red with blue undertones that complement your skin shade.
Glasses wearers have it rough. Often their eyes are hidden behind thick black rims. Bring them out with a thick coat of jet black mascara, Cover Girl suggests. Shaping and defining your eyebrows can also make eyes look gorgeous beyond the lenses.
It's tricky to get the right bronze look without looking overdone. Estee Lauder makeup artists say sweeping bronzer on a matte, perfectly foundationed face in an "E" motion can help you get that healthy bronze glow. Start from the forehead, move to the cheek and then to the chin. Repeat until you get that perfect shade of bronze.
Bobbi Brown doesn't get creative when she chooses a blush for her clients. Pale, light skin looks best in pink and coral shades. Brownish pinks look best on medium skin while dark skin can pull off plums and rose shades.
