"These unique, multi-faced looks will transform your appearance from ordinary to polished and perfected. I love a sophisticated array of boundary-pushing metallic lips and cheeks for day and endearing faux freckles paired with a dramatic eye for night."

Daytime Look: Metallic Muse

"Encapsulating the hottest beauty trend of the year, metallics give a youthful glow that will see you through summer and into fall. The iridescent particles catch the light and sculpt your face without the need for bronzers."

Begin with your go-to foundation routine. Keep it sheer and natural-looking for day.

1. "Apply black eyeliner to the waterline of eyes by wiggling pencil into roots of top and bottom lashes."

2."Curl lashes and layer two coats of mascara to top lashes only."

3. "Work a lustrous cream blush into the apples of the cheeks; blending out and up towards hairline."

4. "Polish off the look with a metallic pink lipstick."

5. "To seal your foundation, try using a mattifying powder. This will give a beautiful contrast to the shiny metallics."

"I love freckles; they are so endearing. Whenever I create freckles for shoots or fashion shows, I use brow pencils in a range of hues and if necessary gently pat with my ring finger to soften."

Begin with your go-to foundation routine. Keep makeup light for buildability.

1. "Prep for a dark eye by applying a brightening undereye concealer. This will give you an edge without the raccoon look."

2. "Swipe an illuminating highlighter on the high cheekbones for an instant glow."

3. "Lightly pat a powdered blush directly onto the apples of the cheeks."

4. "Starting at the inner corner, line eyes with a black eyeliner pencil by dragging out and up, creating a dramatic wing. Line the lower lash line and waterline, connecting the cat-eye."

5. "Keep lips understated with a nude lipstick."

6. "Using the a freckle pencil, apply faux freckles starting on the bridge of the nose, moving down and out onto the cheeks."
