HOT BEAUTY TREND
BOLD EYE MAKEUP
Don't be afraid to try bright shades to beat the winter blahs. "When going bold on the eye, make sure the eyelid [base] is lighter than the color used so you don't get that raccoon look," says Dior makeup artist Shane Paish, who used a dramatic bronze on Charlize Theron. Also, keep the rest of the face simple and clean so the eyes take center stage. Here's what you can use to get these star looks.
