- Eyes: Use shadow that enhances your eye color. Go for the smoky eyes or bombshell cat eyes and finish with incredible mascara. Don’t be afraid to try a new technique. Look for a tutorial on YouTube or stop by a cosmetic counter for a free makeup application and take notes on their process.

- Lips: Moisturize your lips before applying any lip product. Test out different looks from high-gloss to matte, and a wide range of colors to find what suits you best. The lips are a great place for variety.
- Skin: Moisturize before applying foundation or BB cream. Select the same exact color as your face. Its purpose is to mask slight imperfections, not to change your face color. Choose a product that works best with your skin type to balance dryness or oily skin. A drop of foundation under the eyes is a great dark circle concealer, too.
