5 Updated Evening Makeup Looks
Try Jewel-Toned Eye Shadow
What You Want
A bold pop of one shimmering, vibrant shade.
How to Get the Look
- Choose a shimmery powder shadow in a rich color, such as purple, royal blue, or emerald. Apply to each lid, from lash line to crease, with a brush. If you want to go brighter, apply another layer.
- Skip the eyeliner. With such intense pigment near the lashes, "it would make the eye seem heavy and too made-up," says Longo.
- Coat the top and bottom lashes with black mascara. It defines them, so they don't disappear against the jewel-tone shadow.
- Once again, keep the rest of the face on the bare side. Use a natural, peachy shade of blush and a nude lip gloss.
