This makeup look on Emma Stone is so beautiful and perfect for Spring! Rosy cheeks, lips, and soft eyes with definitive liner give a romantic finish anyone can wear. When wanting to create a rosy glow on the face, it's best to use cream products as they tend to appear dewier than powder. For soft rosy lips that last all day, fill in the lips first with a liner to create a solid base and then apply cream lipstick on top. You can go back in with the lip liner to shape the lips in any areas that might need cleaning up. A lot of mascara and black gel liner (whether it's pencil or in a pot) give the eyes the right amount of definition.

That Royal Pink Flush

Pink is a beautiful color when it comes to makeup and is also a great choice when creating a monochromatic look. Pink and blush tones are something we will be seeing a lot this Spring, and this look gives us an idea of how we can pair simplicity with just the right amount of drama. Whichever pink hue suits you best is the one you should wear, and you can do either a matte lip or sheer stain depending on what you're most comfortable with. If you're going to choose a matte lip, be sure to exfoliate your lips and hydrate them with balm so that dry skin isn't noticeable or flaky.

Monochrome Drama

A smoky monochromatic look paired with a strong eyebrow and perfectly toned lip is everything! This makeup ties the same color tones together for the eyes, cheeks, and lips. Just to clarify, when creating a strong eyebrow you don't need to over-do it for the result to be great. Simply put effort into creating a shape and arch that define the face but don't give the impression brows are painted on.

You can create monochromatic makeup with any tones you choose to use and feel comfortable wearing. Bronze and brown tones are pictured here, which look gorgeous on brown, blue, and green eyes. Add a pop of shimmer to the center of the eyelid by using a cream eyeshadow and blending powder shadow in the same color family on top. This creates what makeup artists refer to as a "halo effect", and is a great trick to instantly pop your eye color. If you want to use bronze tones for this type of makeup look, try applying bronzer all over the face and use it as your blush, too.

Dramatic winged liner with metallic shadow is a beautiful way to elevate your makeup look for a fun night out or special event. The key to keeping this makeup successful is all in the winged liner and learning how to create it for your eye shape. After you've applied the eyeshadow to the lid, Use an angled liner brush with a gel liner to create the shape of your wing, and set it with black powder eyeshadow to create a matte finish that's long-lasting.

Jewel Tone Chic

Lining the top and bottom of the eyes with a jewel-toned eyeliner and applying highlighter in the corner of the eyes looks amazing and is a great way to experiment with color, without fully having to commit to eyeshadow if you're not ready. A barely-there lip color ties the look together keeping the eyes the focus, along with clean looking skin. Waterproof eyeliner is the best to use for this look since you're applying it on the bottom to ensure it doesn't smudge. Curl your eyelashes and finish with several coats of mascara, and finish with a ​​makeup setting spray to ensure nothing moves out of place.
