As a general rule, smoky eyes should be paired with an even complexion with little to no contouring or blush. Smoky eyes can be tailored to look more subtle and soft for daytime by using colours aside from the typical black.
Trend #4 – Structured Definition
Contouring is now a huge trend in makeup for any occasion. Contouring flatters the shape of your face by enhancing your cheekbones, defining your nose and adding overall defined structure. Contouring can be achieved with the use of different shades of foundation or specialised contouring powders.
Trend #5 – Perfect Pout
Adding a pop of colour to your everyday look can create the perfect pout. Depending on the tone, a light orange shade can be vibrant and youthful while a deeper toned berry is glamorous and elegant. Shades of pink/fuchsia are also fun yet still maintain a classic air and are the perfect way to add some colour without opting a for a bold red.
