This diffused eyeshadow technique seen on Tracee Ellis Ross is trending and beautiful. To achieve Ross's perfect pink look, choose an eyeshadow in a vibrant rose and pack the colour onto your eyelid before blending upward and out—creating a gradient fade of colour. Pair it with your favourite shade of red lipstick to create that gorgeous pink-red combo.
2. Classic Hollywood
A classic red lip never fails on any holiday or occasion. Swipe on your favourite lipstick (we like RMS LIP SERUM in the shade Ruby Moon) for a perfect look that works for everyone.
3. Shimmery Nude
To get Beyoncé's flawless skin, we recommends RMS Beauty Re Evolve Liquid Foundation , which is a soft matte that does a great job of looking natural while still providing coverage. For those shimmery eyes, try RMS Beauty stunning shades of eyelights. Pro tip: Don't be afraid to place the eyeshadow on the inner corners of your eyes (like Beyoncé did) to add a really beautiful highlight.
4. A Bit of Gloss
A matte powder is a must-have to achieve this perfected look from former First Lady Michelle Obama, says Sawyer. They recommend using Green People Pressed Finishing Powder or our RMS Un-Powder . For that subtle flush of color on the lips, we like to use am RMS lip liner to gently fill in, and then adds a beautiful pop of The Organic Pharmacy gloss and subtle colour to your lips.
5. Colorful Eyeliner
Not a fan of eyeshadow? Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong's shows off an easy way to play up the eyes by using colorful eyeliner to add a narrow pop of blue to the lower lash line. To really lean into this beauty motif, try pairing it with a matching colored mascara.
