Step 1: Apply foundation to even your skin tone and use brow pencil (try Avon Ultra Luxury Brow Liner, $1.99) to fill in brows for definition.
Step 2: Use black eyeliner (try MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Engraved, $14.50) on upper and lower lash lines and inner rims, smudging out the corners a bit. Apply two coats of black mascara (false lashes optional) to finish your eyes.
Step 3: Sweep a light application of bronzer (try Nars Highlighting/Bronzing Blush Duo, $37) on the apples of your cheeks and your forehead.
Step 4: Line your lips with a cherry red lip pencil (try MAC Lip Pencil in Redd, $13) then fill them in to help the color stay. Follow up with a matching lipstick that has a slight sheen to it (try MAC Lustre Lipstick in Cockney, $14). Make sure lips are moisturized beforehand so there's no flaking or feathering.
