A makeup look that enhanced the eyes to perfection is always a great choice whether it’s for a party or a day out shopping with your friends. Rihanna’s sultry eye makeup paired with soft and sensual pink lips will never fail to impress, so grab-a-hold of your favorite eyeliner and smudge it across your upper and lower lash line. Use a black or dark blue, even a dark green eyeliner pencil to make the eyes pop by going softly and carefully along the waterline as this will create an incredibly powerful and alluring effect. To complete the look curl and coat your eyelashes with mascara and your eyes will look like a goddess’s. Finish the look by sculpting your cheekbones with a shimmery bronze blush and apply a soft and sheer lip balm or lipstick on the lips to give your makeup look that seductive freshness that is a must this spring.

An amazingly romantic and universally flattering makeup look can be easily achieved with a minimum amount of products. Lily Collins’s Vanity Fair Oscar Party makeup demonstrates that sometimes less is more as with sensual sheer, berry colored lips and high volume individually defined eyelashes, you can achieve a breathtaking, ultra-seductive look. This is a look that requires perfect looking skin, so conceal any blemishes and imperfections using concealer and blush before you continue to underline your facial features. Keep the look simple and apply a small amount of peach or any other blush that compliments your complexion on the cheekbones to subtly give more definition to your bone structure.

If you’re searching for a head-turning, heavier makeup look, then Olivia Wilde’s two tone makeup is a perfect choice to draw inspiration from. Using shimmery copper and a dark grey/green eyeshadow you can make the eyes pop, but keep in mind that blending is definitely a must if you wish to obtain perfection. Finish the look by coating heavily the eyelashes using a black colored mascara, enhance the cheekbones with a tan colored blush and balance the look by adding a nude colored lipstick. This is a look that is perfect for a cocktail or a night out with your friends, so dare to experiment and explore the enticing world of makeup.
