Eyebrows are an underrated beauty feature. Little does one know that they have the power to make or break the look! If groomed to perfection, they can fetch you plenty of compliments. To make them stand out, tweeze or shave the area above and below the brow. You don't want any stray hair to show. Apply concealer around the brows and blend well. Now, use a brow pencil to fill in the brows and apply brow gel to keep the hair in one place and arched.

A black-winged eyeliner look sure is classy, but if you want to add a touch of glam, play with colour. Try glitter navy blue, emerald and purple eyeliner. If you don't have coloured eyeliner at home, use a bright matte lipstick to get the job done.

If your makeup looks alright, but you still feel something's amiss then you can instantly create a healthy glow by applying a light coat of bronzer to your face. Remember, go easy on the bronzer. You don't want to apply too much of it, you just need a tiny bit of it. Oh, and don't forget to apply some of it on your neck and cleavage for that 'glow, baby, glow' effect!

This highlighter tip takes less than minute to do, but it will make you look like a bombshell! After you've done your base, dust little highlighter on your face in a heart shape.

You don't need to own a blush, eyeshadow and lipstick if you're a woman with minimalistic taste. Just your one lipstick product can do the job of three products! Use a pink creamy matte lipstick to paint your pout, apply the same lipstick on the cheeks as a blush and dab a tiny bit of pink hue on the lids - and there you have it - the perfect monotone look!
