Most of us have a browbone highlighting pencil, right? Well, you must use it to do this too! You can think of it as contouring your lips: you lighten what you want to appear fuller and you shade the rest. Here’s how:

THE EYE POP

This is a subtle way to pop your eye color with colored mascara! But the trick is twofold. First you coat the lashes with the colored mascara, then you go back over them with black mascara, except you leave the pop of color at the lash base. If you have blue eyes, match the color with a blue mascara; green eyes, use a green mascara, and if you have brown eyes, you can use any color (purple, teal, blue, green, etc) because they won’t compete with it. You can also pair complementary colors like purple mascara with green eyes, copper with blue eyes, etc! Here’s how to do it with blue eyes:

There’s something magical that happens when you marry a kohl pencil and a thin flat brush! Kohl pencils are made to be smeared and blended, especially paired with a smoky eye. And my favorite way to do it is with a brush. Simply line the outer half of the upper lashline, switch to the brush then “pull” the line outward and inward. It’s a beautiful thing! Here’s how:

Every Fall I love researching what lip color is going to be the big shade of the season. We had the Oxblood Lip in 2014 and the Merlot Lip last year (which is still going strong this year). But this Fall, I feel like the pendulum is (finally) swinging from the heavy-handed Kardashian-style makeup to the other end of the spectrum: still adding a pop of color but in an “I don’t care” and more effortless way. And the best way to achieve it is fingerpainting it on, creating a non-stain stain look in the prettiest way possible. Here’s how:
