The key to making your freckles look as realistic as possible is doing them in different sizes and spacing them out about ½ an inch apart. You want to keep the rest of your face as natural as possible.
Time to update your black eyeliner and make it white. We all are aware of wearing white eyeliner in our waterline to make our eyes appear larger. However, now you can wear white wing liner instead of black. The white gives your eyes a pop of natural color that makes you look edgy all at the same time.
The same way you would use a black eyeliner you want to do the same with your white liner. You want to keep the rest of your face natural with little to no product and you also want to skip the mascara as dark lashes will be too much for this look.
Blue eyeliner is making a come back and we are obsessed. The key to pulling off a blue liner is going for a cobalt blue. It is the perfect hue on all skin tones and eye colors. The darker the skin the brighter you can go with the blue. You also want to line the top and bottom of your eyes to give you the rich cobalt blue effect.
If you want to intensify the look you can also smog the liner on your lids.The key to this look is making the cobalt blue the center of attention so you want to go very light on the rest of your face and skin. A BB cream would be perfect for this look it will give you coverage without overpowering your skin.

To create the look get a dark red lipstick fill in your lips and add a clear gloss on top to add the glossy effect to your already dark cherry lips. You want to use mascara on your eyes to open them up a bit and you are ready to go.
13.Sun Kissed Glow
We are all about the glow for every season and every time of year. It is very much on trend to have a sun kissed glow everywhere. If you have golden tones to your skin, this is the perfect look for you. You will have a natural sun kissed glow to you that you can just add caramel tones to enhance your skin tone.
If you have a light complexion you can add champagne tones to give you the sun kissed glow. The key is to use subtle warm tones all over your skin from the color on your eyes to your cheeks and your lips. A golden highlight will work wonders with this look.
12.Chestnut Colored Lipstick
Brown tones have become a huge color trending in the makeup work and lipstick is no exception. We are now looking at chestnut colored lipstick. Chestnut is the perfect nude color without being too nude. What this means is it will work with all skin tones regardless of the undertones that you may have.
The perfect way to pull off this color is wearing a little bit of concealer and mascara and you are good to go. This is seamless because the color is so unique that you do not need to add much to the rest of your face.
Did you never think orange eyeshadow would be a trend? Well it is and so is yellow and red. Sunset shadows are on trend and will want to be wearing them too. The key to wearing bright warm colors is blending and more blending. You want to blend the shades enough that they maintain their color but you cannot identify where they begin or end.
If you are a little bit worried about using orange on your lips, you may want to blend a mixture of light orange and darker orange to achieve the perfect shade for you. The truth is orange is actually very flattering on all skin tones and eye colors.
10.Flirty Lashes and Nude Pink Lips
The 60s are coming back to us in a big way. We are now looking at “twiggy inspired lashes” and nude pink lips. What this means is you want thick mascara lashes. Not false lashes instead you want to use multiple coats of mascara and if your lashes end up with clumps that is perfectly fine.
You want to have thick lashes with a bare lid. You want to keep the rest of your face nude except for your lashes and nude pink lips. When you are going for a nude pink lip you want it to be a matte color. The simpler the look the better. To give your look a hint of flirtiness add a little bit of blush to the apples of your cheeks.
9.Dark Eyes and Lips
There is an old age beauty rule that states you cannot wear bold eyes and bold lips at the same time. It is now time to get rid of it and try something new. Time to bring out the dark eyes and dark lips. The key to making this look work for you is using colors that are in the same color family.
If you are going for a brown smokey eye go for a tan lip color or vise versa. Another way to pull this look off is by sporting a lighter smokey eye with a very bold lip that will balance out the darkness in both colors.
8.Bare Face with Red Lips
Red lips will always be a classic look for many of us. It is the perfect look for any and every occasion that you may go to.

It is one of those shades that works well with all skin tones and eye colors. It can be worn in múltiple ways however, we recommend using a matte shadow when you work with a cranberry color.
When you are working with matte shades, it is recommended to use a primer first to get the best blending out of the shade. You can pair a cranberry shadow with any lip color that you decide to choose.
Grungy makeup is making a comeback in a huge way. We are not only going to experience dark shades that are common with grungy makeup we are going to experience a black shadow all over the lid. Do not be intimidated by a black shadow all over your lid it is actually quite flattering for all skin tones. The key to wearing black shadow is keeping the rest of your face minimal.
