Metallic Eye Lids
Use Bobbi Brown’s Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow to create a smoky eye that will shimmer without looking like a disco ball. First, sweep on a matte gold shadow. Then, using your fingertip, apply the metallic shadow to the creases and outer corners of your eyes to create definition.

Even those in warm climates can fake a just-rushed-in-from-the-winter-cold look with Givenchy’s Blush Gelée. With such bright pink cheeks, you can play down the rest of your face: Apply only mascara and a clear lip gloss.

Nothing says glam like lush lashes. Go all out and do a full fringe or, for a subtler but still sexy look, add a couple of individual eyelashes by Make Up For Ever to the outer corners of your lids.
