You've been told not to do this because you've been surrounded by lamewads your entire life.

Maybe this belongs in the "do this don't" realm, but I actually really love the look of shadowing the brow bone. And not with some white-washing highlighting shade. I'm thinking dark taupes, blues, or sparkly-oil-slick green.

STEP 1

Start with your regular foundation or concealer routine, and any contouring-type stuff.

STEP 2

Brush a dark shadow starting at the crease up into the brows. Yes, into the brows. I used to love wearing glitter in my eyebrows in college; I was the prettiest and coolest girl at the jam space. I was the only girl ever at the jam space...

Urban Decay really does do the best shimmer eyeshadows.

STEP 3

I'm obsessed with RMS after getting my first taste. (Ha...)

Their Lip2Cheek pastes melt so easily into the skin, so they're hard to make not look like a natural flush.

STEP 4

Another product I've been obsessing over is Hourglass Aura Sheer Lip Stain. It's a slightly thinner and less glossy version of my other dream lip stain. The "Aura Flush" shade is like a neon version of just-brushed-my-teeth lips. You know what I'm talking about? Do your lips turn the perfect shade of pink after brushing?

It's a super-easy look to recreate but looks so strange and amazing. Maybe even a little scary, so try to smile a lot.
