Makeup Essentials for Creating a Classy Evening Look
Light makeup doesn’t have to look non-existent.

A tawny summer look can easily be extended to evening affairs with the right palettes and products. We’re talking about a more diffused, shimmery version of the smoky eye and luminous, healthy looking skin for the night. Here are some color essentials for the eyes, skin, and lips and some of our favorite products to achieve this classy evening look.

Eyes: Sultry

Layering and blending neutrals over the lid give a more natural, less sooty look. Pick shimmery nudes, gold, bronze, and browns that are different from your skin tone for a vivid effect.

Skin: Glowing

When everyone’s looking flat in matte, you’ll naturally stand out if you look alive and real with a dewy foundation, a tinted moisturizer, or the right bronzer or illuminator. Keep the T-zone oil-free with a brush of powder foundation, but make sure to add a healthy flush over the brow bones and cheekbones with a bronzer or highlighter.
