Try Monochromatic Makeup
Let’s start with something subtle. (You know, baby steps.) Make like Darby Stanchfield here and apply a rose gold shade on your lids, lips and cheeks for a soft all-over glow.

Darken Your Lips
We had all but written off black lipstick until we saw Rooney Mara wearing it with a slicked-back bun and bold brows. Still unsure whether you can pull off the inky hue? (You totally can.) Test the waters with a deep red or burgundy first.

Brighten Up Your Cat-Eye
Or keep a nude lip and try rocking red on your eyes instead. Emmy Rossum nailed the look here by anchoring the shade with a base of jet-black liner underneath.

Try a Double-Flicked Wing
Blink and you might miss it. Look closely to see Camila Cabello’s stacked eyeliner along the outer corners.

Draw Geometric Lines
Or make a bigger (but still subtle) statement with some graphic dashes of liner on your upper lids.

Add a Pop of Blue
Or take a cue from Chloe and just swipe on a soft wash of aquamarine shadow to instantly wake your face up. A flush of pink on the cheeks will complete the look.
