#1 Instead of gloss and shimmer 

Matte is the way to go right now. Try a velvety complexion with soft brown or nude eyeshadow, and a delicate pink pout for a romantic day look.

#2 A game of tones
The latest way to wear sultry smokey eyes? Instead of one dark hue all around, opt for a lighter shade on top, like a shimmery nude, blended into a darker colour, like grey on your lower lid.

#3 Orange is the new pink

Pink might be the bridal go-to for sweet, romantic looks, but a light coral or peach hue is equally charming, and adds a playful, flirty touch too.

#4 Statement lips
Bold lips garner instant attention, but instead of a classic crimson, try plum, berry or wine that looks edgier and sophisticated for the evening.

#5 Wing it
Having trouble achieving the perfect eyeliner flick? Go for a not-so-perfect, slighty smudged look that’s super cool and effortlessly glamorous for the evening instead.
