Here's what to do:

1. Start with a CC cream. This will hydrate and moisturize your skin while also correcting any discoloration.

3. For cheeks, try using a "chubby stick." The pencil-like form is easy to use while the cream formula will add the perfect amount of natural color and radiance.

Pro tip: Use the backside of your middle finger to blend since it's the longest and smoothest area on the hand.

4. Grab some bronzer to warm up the skin.

Pro tip: Use a brush with a big head for even blending. It will allow you to cover more ground.

5. Define your brows with a gel. Brush hairs up and over to keep them looking neat and groomed.

Pro tip: Scrape the sides of the brush on the bottle before using. Too much product will form awkward clumps.

6. Skip your classic powder eye shadow and go for a crayon. Apply it in a half moon shape on the lid and blend with your finger.

Pro tip: Go for an earth-tone color, so that it matches any outfit.

7. Fix up those lashes with a classic mascara. Wiggle from the root out and apply two to three coats.

Pro tip: Start with your bottom lashes first, so you don't mess up your eye shadow.

8. Use the same chubby stick from your cheeks on your lips.

Pro tip: If you want to update your look at night, try using a brighter color.

9. To take your overall look from day to night, add some eyeliner. Draw a thicker line than you normally would to create a smokey eye effect.
