If you want more attention to your eyes, choose an eyeshadow one shade darker than your skin tone, matte or not, to make your eyes looks wow without suffering with that eyeliner wing.
5. A little bit of pink on your checkbones
There is not bronzer or contour, only your favorite peach or coral blush and apply it really soft, A little bit of color on your cheeks will make your skin look more alive and obviously gorgeous.
6. Always wear lip balm
If you are like me and you always have dry lips, you will notice how they make us look paler and lifeless, a lip balm in your bag or clutch can make a big difference, you can buy one with red or pink tint to give color to your lips without making it look too excessive,
