Lay the right foundation. Because your complexion has a mix of undertones -- your cheeks may be lighter, your nose darker -- it's best to match your base to the area of deepest color, says Ashunta Sheriff, a celebrity makeup artist in New York City.

Swipe on sheen. Keeping your lips and cheeks in the same color family will give you a radiant, healthy look. "You want an overall glow, not one feature taking center stage," says Tina Turnbow, a makeup artist in New York City. Try gold-flecked and peachy shades for a grown-up bronze.

Add definition. "When brows are groomed, you instantly look polished," says Joanna Schlip, a celebrity makeup artist in Los Angeles. Use a waxy pencil and short, feathery strokes to fill in sparse areas.
