This red lip and winged eyeliner look turns tried and true new again

Love makeup with classic charm? Few looks are as timeless as bright red lips and winged eyeliner. However, even tried and true looks need the occasional update. Incorporating some on-trend techniques is an easy way to make any standard style seem new again.
Subtle contouring and bronzer, which have come into fashion more recently, add a tropical vacay vibe to this iconic style. Earth-tone eye shadows bring more depth and warmth to the winged eyeliner, which on its own can sometimes seem stark. A touch of highlighter on your cheeks and the tip of your nose makes you shine in all the right places.

Instructions
1. Rub moisturizer into your face with your fingers.
2. Rub primer onto your cheeks, chin, forehead, nose and other oil-prone areas with your fingers.
3. Apply foundation using a foundation brush. Use long strokes across your cheeks, and blend the foundation in around your eyes, hairline and jawline using a stippling motion.
4. With concealer or contour cream a few shades lighter than the foundation, draw several lines beneath your eyes in the shape of a triangle, a triangle between your brows, a dot above your cupid’s bow, on your chin and a line down your nose. Blend it in with the side of a blending sponge using a stippling motion.
5. With “Deep” or a contour cream a few shades darker than the foundation, draw two lines along your cheekbones and a few dots around your hairline. Suck in cheeks to make it easier to find where you should apply the contour cream. Blend it in with the side of a blending sponge using a stippling motion.
6. Use a blending sponge and a stippling motion to apply setting powder on your cheeks. Sweep across the areas with a powder brush for a more natural finish.
7. Swirl and tap bronzer along your cheekbones and around your hairline where you applied the darker contour cream.
8. Stipple blush on the apples of your cheeks using a cheek brush.
9. Spritz your face with setting spray, holding the can far enough away that you don't end up with droplets on your fact.
10. Tap highlighter onto your cheeks above the blush you applied in step 8. Also sweep highlighter onto the tip of your nose.
11. Fill in your brows with an angled brow brush and brow cream. Use short, quick strokes following the natural curve of your brows. Brush your brows with brow gel and a spoolie.
12. Apply mascara to your upper lashes.
13. With your fingertip, apply eye shadow primer to your lids to help the eye shadow stay in place.
14. With a fluffy eye shadow brush, apply “Pooter” or a matte cinnamon shadow to your crease and the outside of your lid.
15. Use the same brush to apply “Mocha” or a matte shadow the color of baking chocolate on top of the shadow you applied in the previous step. Tap some shadow onto the middle of your lid to give the shadow a layered look.
16. Load up an angled liner brush with black gel eyeliner. Draw a line angled up from the outer corner of your eye. Use the edge of the brush to make a straight line.
17. Draw a second line coming down from the first toward the middle of your lid. Fill in between the two lines. Continue lining your eye over to the inner corner.
18. Line your lower waterline with a black eye pencil. With an eye detail brush, apply “Abyss” or a matte black shadow to your lower lash line.
19. Pick up the false eyelashes with tweezers, and apply a small amount of lash glue onto the lash band. Allow the glue to set for 10 seconds before applying the lashes just above your upper lashes.
20. Put “Hotshot” or matte red liquid lipstick on your lips. Touch up the edges of the lipstick with a flat makeup brush as needed.
