Makeup for night out

Bordeaux LipsLet’s put it this way: Drawing attention to your lips? Never a bad thing on a date. Anne Hathaway’s deep wine lip color is just intense enough to be a pretty focal point. To get this kind of precise color that also lasts, start by tracing the natural border of your mouth with a burgundy-colored lip pencil, and use it to fill in the entire lip area.Then, with a lip brush, apply a dark red lipstick such as Dolce & Gabbana The Lipstick in Ultra on top. Keep the rest of the face simple by adding a bit of mascara and filling in brows where needed, says makeup artist Quinn Murphy.Allover BronzeSo, right here, Rihanna has that all-natural “I-just-roll-out-of-bed-this-gorgeous” look. The secret to re-creating it? Wearing the same glowing makeup color all over the face. With a fluffy powder brush, lightly dust bronzer (Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer) on the temples, just below the cheekbones, and under the jawline. “You’re keeping the color on the edges but still allowing the high points of the face to come forward,” Murphy says. Dab a touch of blush on the apples of the cheeks, swipe a dark brown eyeliner along the top lash line, and smooth on a gold-flecked neutral lip gloss (we love Benefit Ultra Shines in Nudie-Tude) for your own spin on this effortless look.Champagne Smoky EyesSmoky eyes are sexy but can come across as intense and dramatic. If that’s not the message you’re sending, try the lighter, softer version Scarlett Johansson has here. Line the top and bottom lash lines with black eyeliner, and smudge with a Q-tip or your finger. Apply a light brown eye shadow (we like Burberry Beauty Sheer Eye Shadow in Midnight Brown) around the outer corners and blend toward the brow bone and under the lower lashes to soften the border. Dust on a shimmery champagne (try CoverGirl Eye Enhancers in Champagne) on the center of the eyelids and “build the color to the edge of the crease,” says Murphy.
