With a more subtle and natural appearance, your features are charmingly highlighted by minimal makeup, giving you an “I woke up like this” shine. To get the look, you’ll want to emphasize dewy, glowing skin by using a light foundation or tinted moisturizer. Select eyeshadows in earthy browns, delicate pinks, and soft taupes to highlight your eyes without drawing too much attention to them.
Complete your simple ensemble with nude or “MLBB” (my lips but better) lip colors. These hues mimic the color of your natural lips while creating a polished finish – without drawing too much attention to themselves.

The beautiful diva makeup style can appeal to you if you’re drawn to Hollywood glamour. You should feel prepared to walk down the red carpet wearing this style. To get the look, start with smoky eyes that ooze intrigue and elegance. Traditional black and gray colors are options, or you can get creative with metallics and deep purples.

Sculpt your face with skillfully placed contours and highlights, giving you the desirable chiseled appearance. Strong, well-defined brows are also crucial to the glamorous diva appearance. They give the entire look a professional appearance while framing your face.
Playful and Colorful
If seeing a palette with a rainbow of hues makes your heart skip a beat, this makeup look is your playground. Embrace your creative side and enjoy playing with a variety of colors. To get the look, combine shades of colored eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, and highlighter to create eye-catching looks.
Why limit yourself to just one lip color when you can have two? Ombre lips, where two complementary colors mix, give your makeup look a fun new twist.
Classic & Timeless

Consider wearing your makeup with retro-inspired hairstyles like soft waves, victory rolls, or graceful pin curls to completely embrace the vintage look.
