Foolproof Spring Dance Makeup!

I’m going to a dance this weekend and have no clue how to do my makeup! I don’t want anything too crazy…what should I do?

Our no-fail spring makeup will take you two minutes to apply and have you lookin’ amazing (not to mention totally natural!).

Start by applying eye shadow. Opt for a shimmery neutral, like champagne, peach or caramel, and swipe on your lid.

Maybelline Expertwear Single Eyeshadow, Cinnamon Spice High Pearl Finish 215, $3,
If you want extra drama, opt for a slightly darker shade on your lid and a lighter hue to apply from the crease to brow bone. 
Duo Eye Shadow Cream, $1,
Add two coats of mascara, letting it dry between coats. 
Make lips shine with a crystal gloss or subtly glimmery balm. Go for an air-light pink or rosy hue to show off a pretty pout.
If you want to add an extra bit o’ glow, apply highlighter (makeup, not the marker!) to the tops of your cheekbones and on the inner corner of your eye (right by your nose).
Benefit Cosmetics High Beam, $24,
Start snappin’ pics, girl, you’re ready to go!
