A natural look:

  • For staying power, use a primer before applying your makeup
  • Conceal any red spots on your face
  • Use a light foundation
  • Prime your eyes
  • Fill and even your brows
  • Use neutral tones on your eyes
  • Set your foundation with a light powder
  • Apply light contouring, highlight, and blush
  • Curl your lashes and apply mascara
  • For your lips, choose a shade that’s close to your natural color
  • Use a setting spray that will make your makeup last all day

An edgy look:

  • To transition to a more dramatic look, apply a cat eyeliner
  • For even more drama, continue your eyeliner along your crease
  • Soften the lines by blending a dark eyeshadow
