Instant Makeup Tips
1. Kohl Eyes
Swipe a liquid liner through your eyes, hold the skin at the outer corner of your eye stretching your lid into a straight line.
Apply your regular black pencil right along the lash line, from your inner corner to the outer corner.
Trace the line with liquid liner, extending it about 1/4 inches past the outer corner of your eye with a slight upward tick, which gives eyes a lifted look.

2. Bold Lips
The more modern way to rock the bold and luscious lips are deep orange, plum and fuchsia shades of lipstick.
Before that make sure your lips are soft and supple. (Regular use of lip balm/chap stick keeps your lips soft)
Apply your favorite shade with your finger for a softer effect.
Carmindy says, “A bit of blush and soft-brown eye shadow are all you need to complete the look.

Apply shimmer in the right spots for a sophisticated effect and not disco ball.
Do your regular makeup and apply a luminizing lotion/cream with a subtle sheen in 3 areas – top of your cheekbone, under your nose and inner corners of your eyes.

4. Metallic Eye Shadow
Touch of metallic eye shadow can do wonders to your look. Just use your ring finger to dab the shadow onto the center of your lids, then blend it out toward the corners.
For dark complexion, true gold, bronze and copper shades makes your eyes pop giving a glamour’s effect.
