Two Tone Makeup!

Trend to Try Now: Two-Tone Makeup  


3-D Cheeks

WHY IT WORKS :  Layering bronzer and blush has a double benefit. "The bronzer brings out cheekbones and makes the face more three-dimensional,". "The blush gives a glow."

HOW-TO After smoothing lightweight foundation onto de  skin,  use the  fingers to swirl cream bronzer around the sides of her face in a large "3" shape, starting at the temples, working down to the upper cheekbones, and continuing down to the jawline. Then  layerpink cream blush along the apples of the cheeks, right on top of the bronzer.

WHY IT WORKS This two-tone look subtly contours the mouth, . A darker shade around the periphery adds definition, while a slightly softer tone in the center reflects light and creates the illusion of fuller, juicier lips. The key is to use two shades in the same color family "They should gradually fade into each other for an ombré effect."

HOW-TO Puckey used a firm brush to precisely apply a deep carnation hue along de Ravin's lip line, then blended it toward the center. Next, brush a paler bubblegum pink into the middle of the top and bottom lips.

WHY IT WORKS Contrasting colors on the lids makes for subtle drama and a supersize effect. Here, copper shadow brightens eyes as deep plum elongates them.

HOW-TO Puckey covered the outer corners of de Ravin's lids with purple, then blended it out into a wing shape to "fade the color,.
 Next,  apply  shimmery copper at the inner corners of eyes, blending into the creases and up to the brow bones with a Q-tip.
To finish, sweep copper under the lower lashes and apply  three coats of black mascara.
