Don’t fall flat — stand out with this glowtastic makeup look

There's no way you'll fade into the background with this glowing makeup look. The eye technique draws light to the eyes, and the subtle contour shades brighten the skin. The look packs a powerful makeup punch without much work, and it doesn’t look overdone even though it's over-the-top glamorous.
This look works for a daytime date, the office, or even a night out. For daytime, tone it down by using volumizing mascara instead of false lashes and a nude lip instead of a bold color. For the night, go all out and still have your natural beauty shine through. Either way, this will enhance your natural glow.
