Quick Tip for Night-Time Makeup
How NOT to Over-do It
If you're going out & you want to look fabulous,
just remember this simple tip: Either play up your eyes or
your mouth, never both. If you accentuate both features, you
risk looking dated (remember the 80s?), harsh & artificial.
If you choose to play up your eyes, you can be as dramatic as
you want with eyeliner, shadow & mascara. But stick to gloss or
a light lipstick shade for your lips. You want your eyes to
'pop.' But you don't want them competing with your lips.
If it's your lips you want to accentuate, paint on a strong
shade & line just your upper lashes with a couple strokes of
mascara to finish your eyes. If your eyelids have bluish lines,
you can mask that with face powder or concealer, but stay away
from colored shadows -- the lighter, the better.
