Beauty and fashion woman-in-the-know, Marjorie Harvey knows a thing or two about mastering the look of effeortless chic. Take a cue from her beauty book and highlight the inner corners of your lower lash line with a metallic hue. If silver is too much for you, opt for a more subtle golden or bronze hue. It's modern, understated, and—with the right shade—office friendly.

The hottest beauty trend of the moment is strobing. If you're over the contouring trend, or it's simply too much for you, why not let your skin skin take center stage and add a little glow using your favorite highlighter? Forgoe all other makeup, keep the eyes simple and focus on the high plains of the face— you'll look effortless and oh so luminous!
