This look, worn by actress Amber Heard at the L.A. premiere of The Rum Diary, is simple but sparkling, and even if you’re not a twenty-five-year-old with perfect skin and blindingly white teeth, it can still work for you. The key is to strategically bring out your best features without adding a lot of extra color or drama. Here’s how it’s done.
1. Maximize Volume
2. Get Meticulous About Your Brows
3. Wear Makeup That’s “Like You, Only Better”
Sometimes natural-looking makeup can make a bigger statement than bold colors. Highlight cheeks using a barely-there matte blush like Sonia Kashuk Beautifying Blush in Pink ($8.99 at Target), emphasize eyes with black mascara and a shimmery gold shadow, and finish the look with a youthful, creamy pink lipstick, like Becca Sheer Tint Lip Colour in Leticia ($24, Beccacosmetics.com)
