Natural Brows

We've lived through the pencil-thin eyebrow phase and the thick, overdrawn eyebrow phase. Now it's time to show off those natural brows. Simply groom your brows by brushing them upward with a spoolie brush and then fill in any sparse spots with brow pencil using light strokes. Tip: Once you have the shape and look you want, set your brows with a dab of clear lip balm to keep them in place.

Bold Lips

Rich burgundy, wine red, and dashing maroon. Giving your lips a bold pop of color is a fun way to make a statement. Perfect with light, natural makeup and your go-to mascara. Tip: For a softer look, place the lip color on your finger and dab it onto your lips. For a fuller lip, use a slightly darker lip liner and line just outside your natural lip.

Glossy Lips

If bold lipsticks aren't your thing, try a glossy lip for a subtle yet elevated touch. The newer formulas are a thinner consistency, and lo and behold, less gooey. Gone are the days where you'd find your hair constantly sticking to your lips! Tip: Be sure to prep your lips with a lip balm or moisturizer for a long-lasting, hydrated finish.

Colored Liner

Ready to ditch your basic black liner? Try a swipe of color to brighten and complement your eyes. For blue eyes, try gold, champagne, or navy shades. For green eyes, bronze, rust, or purple shades. For brown eyes, try blue, amber, or gray shades. And for hazel eyes, green, purple, or gold shades. Tip: Start with an eyeshadow primer to keep your lines in place.


Highlighting is perfect for emphasizing those areas on your face where the light naturally hits, giving you a gorgeous glow. Place on the tops of your cheek and brow bones, down the bridge and at the tip of your nose, and over your cupid's bow. You can even place a little on the inner corners of your eyes to brighten your eye look. Tip: If you accidentally use too much, just fade it out with some foundation.

Sheer Foundation

Fresh skin never goes out of style. Embrace your complexion and try a sheer or radiance-boosting foundation for a natural-looking finish that allows your skin to shine through. Start with a little and build as you go, and only target coverage where needed. Tip: Start with a clean face, a good primer, and make sure to blend, blend, blend!

    Use Chapstick in a pinch to set eyebrows. Use clear lip liner pencil instead of a colored one for everything, especially great when traveling.

    I'm 63 and have a few wrinkles that evidently are here to stay even though I use moisturizer/wrinkle fix cream/lotion every morning and at night (when I can remember it). But, my favorite new idea (not sure if it's new or just new to me) is to use a shadow that compliments my eyes on the outer half of my eyelid, with a lighter neutral color in the center eyelid. It really seems to make my eyes shine and looks great!

    I love being bold. Stand out in a crowd. I love colored mascara. Green by MAC is my favorite.

    I like looking as natural as possible. When it's hot outside I like to put icy cold water on my face before applying my makeup so it'll stay on longer.
