Glitter and Gold
This is one of the simplest yet elegant looks that one can wear to casual outings and parties too. All you need is an eyeshadow pallet within a golden tint, apply it generously in the crease of your eyes, top it with a glittery golden shade, start applying from the inner crease, and make it lighter when you go to the outer crease. If you don’t have a glittery golden shade, don’t worry, a bronzer or highlighter will do the job for you. Finish this look by applying a winged liner and mascara.
This is a very sleek look one can try on an everyday basis. This makes them look glossy and luscious without making them look artificial. All you need to do is apply a concealer to your lips and apply a pink or red tint on the outer line of your lips and merge it with a beauty blender. Let it sit for a couple of minutes and then apply a layer of transparent lip gloss. This will make your lips look naturally beautiful. You can carry this look with every outfit and on any occasion.
This is one of the makeup looks that gives a very cute and natural-looking glow to your face. All you need for this look is a blusher or red lipstick. After applying your makeup, apply blush or red pigment on your cheeks and nose generously and blend it well. A light eyeshadow and glossy lips will complement this look. This is a go-to look for any casual outing.
This is one of the boldest, yet elegant looks you can carry in any function. A matte red lipstick with simple makeup and a popping highlighter makes your shin in the crowd.

Apply a light eyeshadow to your eyes and after that apply a winged liner that goes from the crease to the corner of the eye. Make sure you define your lash line and don’t make it too thick. Check if both the liners bath. And once they do, put on falsies or a couple of layers of mascara. Finish this look by applying a highlighter to the corner of your eye. Fill in your brows dark with this look as it will make your eyes pop well.
