Romy Soleimani, our Beauty Director-at-Large, layered several neutral shades of bronze and brown to achieve a warm, metallic hue. Try Vincent Longo Wet Diamond Eyeshadow Wet/Dry Formula in Capucine or Vincent Longo Wet Diamond Eyeshadow Wet/Dry Formula in Tempest Bronze. The Urban Decay Naked Palette is also a great option for a shimmering, neutral eye. Depending on your eye shape, layer several neutral shades onto your lid and deepen the color in the crease or directly above it to open your eye. Illuminate the inner corners with a highly-pigmented gold shadow like The Loose Shimmer Shadow in Citrine by Kevyn Aucoin, bareMinerals Yellow Eyecolor Eye Shadow in True Gold or Anna Sui Eye Shadow in #852 Metallic Bronze.Move shimmer from the inner corner up to the inner arch and use a liner brush like the Paula Dorf Angle Liner Brush to deposit shimmer onto the inner corner of the lower lash line. Layer a combination of black and brown liners to define your eye. Try Prescriptives Softlining Pencil in Jet followed by Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Whiskey and coat lashes in bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara in Black for a soft, feathery fringe.
Finish by adding definition and shape to your brows with a universal pencil like the Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil by It Cosmetics or the It Cosmetics Brow Power Perfector in Dark Brown or Auburn if you have dark brown or red hair.
Make sure to exfoliate and hydrate your lips before applying a bold scarlet shade to ensure long-wearing, smooth color application. Apply a swipe of a deep, blue-red hue like Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick in Scarlet Red or NARS Semi-Matte Lipstick in Scarlet Empress.
Sometimes it's easiest to line your lips first and bring the color from the outer line in to the center of your pout. Try Dr. Hauschka Skin Care Lipliner Lip Pencil in 02 Classica, Lipstick Queen Lipliner in Red or Lipstick Queen Lipliner in Rust.
