From Bridal Fashion Week to Tribeca Film Festival parties, we’ve pulled three fresh ideas to shake up your beauty routine. Try one of these creative combinations to make your morning makeup application more fun, and face the week feeling (and looking!) fabulous. 

Natural Eyeshadow + Black Liquid Liner. Often liquid liner means a winged cat eye and bare eyelids. For a refreshing change of pace keep the precise line of black eyeliner (we love working with Yves Saint Laurent Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils), but lose the thick wing, and add a little dimension with a wash of natural eyeshadow.

 Matte Skin + Lots of Lashes. Matte skin is certainly having a moment. Right now, we’re loving Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea’s take on the trend. Steal her modern, matte look by pairing a flawless face with defined eyes and eyelashes all around. Achieve matte magic with Lancôme Dual Finish or Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation, and load up the lashes with black mascara.

Red Lipstick + Pink Cheeks. This unexpected pairing gives a fresh feel to the classic red lip. This week, rather than letting your red lips stand alone, try adding a pop of pink on the cheeks. Find your perfect red lipstick and pick up Maybelline Fit Me Blush in Deep Rose or Claudio Riaz Pop Culture Eye & Face Shade to give your cheeks a glow.
