Wear gold
Remember, the key is to use it sparingly, so you don't draw attention to fine lines!
Option 1: Add a hint of gold shadow to the centre of your lids or top your lipstick with a swipe of gold gloss. It makes your lips fuller.
Option 2: Build definition along the top of your cheekbones with a shimmery cream highlighter like THE ONE Face Styler Highlighter or a powder highlighter such as THE ONE IlluSkin Liquid Highlighter.

No matter what, lashes should be coated in jet black. Go for Mystic Black THE ONE 5-in-1 Wonder Lash XXL Mascara.

Try red lips
A good tip for making red lipstick appear more modern is to take a tissue and pull it into two parts so that it's really transparent. Then apply it over your lips and dust some THE ONE Illuskin Powder over the top for a beautiful, velvety finish to your look.

Eyes should be pared-back, brows simply brushed, and as for skin – a healthy, dewy glow is the only support this look needs.

Go for dramatic lines
Draw a neat line along your upper and lower lids with this trick:
Sit down and look into a mirror on a stand so you're balanced and both hands are free. Hold your eye firm, then draw dashes along your lash lines with a thin felt-tip liner such as THE ONE Eyeliner Stylo. Connect the dashes to create one precise line on the top and bottom.

Balance this look with a flawless base like THE ONE Everlasting Sync Foundation.

Focus on the under-eye area
A run of big nights out means trying to hide the dark circles afterwards, and concealers are our saviour. Draw two “C” shapes in the corners of your eyes with THE ONE IlluSkin Concealer to help your make-up pop. Take a concealer brush and set it with powder.

Our top tip for making our eyes look bigger is never trowel on dark liner. Instead, glide THE ONE Colour Unlimited Eye Shadow Stick along your lash line.
