DIY Beauty: Try This Classic Night-Out Look

If your beauty routine is feeling a little...routine, it's time to wake it up with a little extra glam. Sometimes the best way to try something new is to borrow from the past, especially when a vintage trend is on the rise. We wanted to create a retro-inspired look that wows for nighttime, and to achieve it we enlisted the help of local NARS makeup artist Jake Broullard. Jake's breaking down three tricky makeup techniques into anyone-can-do-them steps, and the result is classic and glamourous without being too done-up or costumey. Try all four tips together or master each one individually—either way you're about to have some seriously stunning beauty classics to make admirers go mad.

Defined Brows

1. For a defined brow, use a product one shade darker than your natural color. Try a powder like Bali Single Eye Shadow or Pandora Duo Eye Shadow to fill in brows.

2. Sculpt the brow using Ipanema Eye Brow Pencil. This creates a natural sheen and helps fill in sparse areas of the brow.

3. Use loose setting powder to set the brow. This will keep the brow color on, as well as diffuse and soften the look.

Defined Eye/Wash of Color

1. Use Hollywoodland Soft Touch Shadow Pencil all over the lid of the eye as a base. Apply to inner corners to brighten and open the eye. If you are feeling adventurous, apply one or two cut pairs of lashes to the outer corners of the lash line. Cut the strips down to a third of the length of your eye. This will give your lashes a heavier, doll-like appearance.

2. Apply the left side of Indian Summer Duo Eyeshadow on the lid of the eye. Apply Madrague Duo Eye Shadow in the crease of the eye. Finish the lash look with layers of Lengthening and Volumizing Larger than Life Mascara. If you opt to skip the false lashes you can achieve extra volume by applying Snow Loose Powder to your lashes before applying mascara.

3. We layered the eyeliner to create a smooth, rich, pigmented black line. Start with Via Veneto Larger than Life Eyeliner tracing the lash line.

The dark eyeliner enhances the eyes, but the shimmery shadow keeps the look from being too overwhelming.

Bold Lip

1. Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil acts as a base color to the lip. Create an ombre effect by adding Jungle Red Lip Liner around the edges of the mouth blending into the lip.

2. Apply Norma Lip Gloss all over, then use Wonder Lip Gloss in the center of the lip. Or, use Red Square and Jungle Red alone for a matte lip option.
