Bright Hues

If you choose to wear a bright color, Brett suggests you keep the makeup crisp, but neutral, so the attention is drawn to the clothing. And when experimenting with bold makeup colors [16], resist the urge to be matchy-matchy.

Eye-Popping Lashes

For fool-proof fake lashes [17], Brett opts for short, brown lashes. Not only are they more natural-looking, but they give your eyes just enough pop.

Trending Makeup Shades

Colored mascara, turquoise liquid liner, Nicki Minaj's OPI nail polish, and fluorescent pink gloss are just a few vivid hues Brett sees trending [18] in the makeup world.
