Maybe this belongs in the "do this don't" realm, but I actually really love the look of shadowing the brow bone. And not with some white-washing highlighting shade. I'm thinking dark taupes, blues, or sparkly-oil-slick green.

STEP 1

Start with your regular foundation or concealer routine, and any contouring-type stuff.

I've been contouring with a slightly darker shade of foundation for a more natural look than bronzer.

STEP 2

Brush a dark shadow starting at the crease up into the brows. Yes, into the brows. I used to love wearing glitter in my eyebrows in college; I was the prettiest and coolest girl at the jam space. I was the only girl ever at the jam space...

Don't apply any shadow to the area of the lid below the crease.

Blend the shadow out at the sides. This is really easy to do with a shimmery shadow, just smudge and dab with your ring finger.

Urban Decay really does do the best shimmer eyeshadows.

I'm obsessed with RMS after getting my first taste. (Ha...)

Their Lip2Cheek pastes melt so easily into the skin, so they're hard to make not look like a natural flush.

STEP 4

Another product I've been obsessing over is Hourglass Aura Sheer Lip Stain. It's a slightly thinner and less glossy version of my other dream lip stain. The "Aura Flush" shade is like a neon version of just-brushed-my-teeth lips. You know what I'm talking about? Do your lips turn the perfect shade of pink after brushing?

A bright pink sheer lip keeps the dark eyeshadow from looking too harsh.

It's a super-easy look to recreate but looks so strange and amazing. Maybe even a little scary, so try to smile a lot.
