* For eyes: Opt for a smokey eyes look, chiselled cheeks and nude lips if going out in the evening. Add a dash of gloss to complete this glamorous look. Depending on one's outfit, the colour used to highlight the eyes should either be a dark chocolate brown or charcoal grey.
This look reflects boldness in one's attitude, so for those who want to stand out this is a must try. Tying one's hair up in a loose bun-up do for this kind of a look is also recommended to compliment the glitter in one's eyes.
* For a perfect pout: For a very sophisticated, subtle look, go for a dark black eyeliner and a bright lip colour. Choose from the wide range of reds, pinks, coral reds. A sleek ponytail goes very well with the look. One can accentuate their features and be ready for a dinner or an evening party in minutes.
*For the day look: For a softer look during the day, one should opt for eye shadows in softer shades and a little blush in coral colours. Peach and pink are the most favoured colours when it comes to blushes. For the lips, tinges of soft pink with gloss are the way to go. Add lots of mascara to highlight the eyes.
With a soft look like this, leave your hair loose in soft big curls or waves and probably twist it around on one side. For those who do not want to flash their tresses, a fish tail braid with a soft make-up look is also a good choice.
* For the cheeks: Bronzed cheeks compliment bronze eye shadow more than any other. Add a little black eye shadow on outer corners and adorn it with a little smudged eye liner. Top it up with lots of mascara to give a dramatic, sizzling look.
Opt for a coloured lip gloss in pink, brown or coral to complete the look. Bronze guarantees a scorching, glamorous look. To add to the glamour quotient, one can leave their hair open and flaunt soft waves or curls.
