Brows: Even naturally full brows tend to have gaps that need filling in. For softer arches, Grego brushes on brow powder in upwards and outwards strokes.
Lips: Soft, gleaming pink lips are perfect for a radiant look. If yours are on the thin side, over-drawing gives a fuller pout. Subtle differences, like reshaping just the sides or rounding out the cupid’s bow, are more impactful and natural-looking than overlining the entire thing.
Once you have the shape, fill in with a lip liner in the same shade as your lipstick, and finish with a gloss.
Eyes: “Make your eyes larger and brighter by applying liner as close to the upper lash lines as possible, and then gradually tapering it towards the centre of the bottom lids,” says Grego.

Lips: This brilliant magenta makes lips look luscious. Apply lip liner and then lipstick with a brush so it goes on evenly.
For yours to look as great as these here, get a good baby toothbrush and exfoliate them gently every morning. Also use lip balm during the day and before you sleep.
Cheeks: The secret to more sculpted cheekbones is blending, says Grego. “Sweep an apricot blush, which is universally flattering, onto the cheeks, and then blend in a bronzy contouring powder from the temples to the cheek hollows with an angled brush.

Eyes: To soften smoky eyes, use a bronzy gold instead of black or grey. If a brown smoky eye is your go-to, use an earth-tone palette of shades within the same family, so you can build a beautiful, gradated eye with ease.
Sweep a darker shade nearer your lash line then go lighter towards the brow bone. And instead of eyeliner, try eyeshadow for subtle definition.
Lastly, swipe on a near-nude lip with or without gloss.
Eyes: Amp up the smokiness by intensifying the lid colours you had on during the day, and topping up the mascara (upper and lower lashes).
