When it comes to makeup, nothing rivals the power of red. And this season, the colour is multi-tasking and showing up on lips, cheeks, and eyes!

The Fearless Red Shadow

Who's afraid of the red eye? No need to be! The trick lies in a shade that can actually work in real life—instead of a bold hue, try a copper-y red or a pink-ish version. A fluffy brush will deposit less colour and let you build up, so use that. Add a black cat-eye for contrast, so you look more cool, and less contagious.

Cherry Cheeks 

Most Popular

A red blush may look scary in the box, but if applied lightly, gives cheeks a youthful, natural flush. Blend the product in a boomerang shape from your brow bone to the top of the cheekbone, and add a touch to the tip of your nose—so it looks like you just ran around the block. 

An Ultra- Glossy Affair 

 If you love drama, this version is tailor-made for you! Glossy lips work great with a matte complexion, so follow your foundation with a setting powder. For crisper edges, use a concealer pen around your lips. It's all about high definition, baby! 

Truly, Matte-ly 

 If you enjoy the spotlight, matte lips will get you all that! The right shade matters, and it helps to know whether you're a cool or warm-toned girl (if the veins under your wrist are greenish, you're 'warm'; purple or blue veins mean you're 'cool'). When shopping for one, look for terms like 'matte', '18-hour' or 'long-lasting', and avoid 'sheer' or 'semi-matte'.

The potential health benefits of drinking green tea are almost countless. "The antioxidant EGCG has been studied to treat various diseases and may help with brain function, fat loss, and lowering the risk of cancer," says Snyder. "Polyphenols are another antioxidant plentiful in green tea and can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting our cells from aging and other diseases." Keep your sipping to one or two cups a day as green tea is high in caffeine, which is best consumed in moderation, says Snyder. As for which to buy: "It's great to use organic loose leaf tea or tea bags that contain loose leaves, which are higher quality and are less processed," she says, as opposed to tea 'dust.'
