1. For evening in the spotlight, or more intimate settings with candlelight, use a concealer that is one shade lighter than your natural skintone. Using a beauty sponge, blend the concealer into the area underneath the eyes, upwards into the cheekbones and the high plains of the face—bridge of the nose, chin, bow of the lip, brow bone and forehead.

2. If your eye makeup is a little on the dramatic side, keep your lips simple. This glossy nude Dej Loaf is sporting is perfect. For a similar look, try Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Dainty.

3. Prime your lids before applying shadow to avoid any creasing. To get this glam rock shimmery eye, try Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Oil Slick

4. Finish by setting your makeup with a translucent powder.

5. Practice your fiercest pose and sultry stare.
