Start with your normal routine whether that includes moisturizer, foundation, concealer, or any other products you use daily for your skin and face.
Eyes: Stick to your favorite neutrals for liner and shadow, and keep it simple. Line your lid, do a quick stroke of the shadow, or skip straight to a swipe of mascara.
Lips: Pick your favorite gloss or liquid lipstick, but stick to a neutral tone like a mauve or nude.
Choose whether you want to focus on your eyes or your lips.
If Eyes: Go dramatic with a black winged liner, and try a deep shadow like a charcoal grey or bronze. Leave your lips a natural pink tone with just a dab of lip balm so all eyes will be on your eyes!
If Lips: Exfoliate your lips and then carefully apply your favorite bold, deep, or bright lipstick. Keep the eyes simple with just a coat of mascara.
